What does the cultist have on him/her?

d100Entry
1The cult member drops ceremonial robes that were in his backpack. This would make for a great disguise for the character that found it. What they don't know is that this robe is worn by the human sacrificer.

28The crumpled, tear-stained note of a loved one, wishing the cultist farewell and asking them to forget about them.

The message ends with the writer wishing the cultist all the happiness in the world and a reminder that the writer will always love them.
29A religious symbol from an opposing religion, thoroughly hidden away on the cultist’s body.
30A grocery list with the ingredients for corned beef written on it. Scrawled down at the bottom is the secret ingredient the cultist uses to make his dish extra special, written in a code of the cultist’s own design. A successful DC 16 Intelligence check decodes the scribbling and reveals the secret ingredient to be wood shavings from the local tavern.
