I'm using the moathouse castle and dungeon from The Village of Hommlet, with some elements changed to suit our ongoing game. The party defeated a group of hobgoblins taking up residence on the surface level, but two of the things had fled into the dungeon. The party opted not to pursue right away. I rolled for the hobgoblins who, failing the roll, ran afoul of the green slime waiting at the bottom of the stairs. The party did not hear the hobgoblin screams as the creatures were slowly digested from the outside-in.
After a bit, the party was ready for the dungeon and noticed the slime-covered remains of the hobgoblins at the bottom of the stairs. What they did not know was how to deal with green slime. Then, this exchange happened:
Pithia's Player: "It says we can use an Awesome Point to find a small item close at hand."
Pithia: "I spend an Awesome Point to find a pamphlet about green slime."
Me: ". . . Awesome!"
