Last session my players finished mopping up the moat house. Next session will probably be just bookkeeping but there is the possibility of them traveling to Nulb, so I've been reviewing my notes on Nulb and the Temple. One thing that has always gotten me is the room that Thrommel is found in. Specifically what all the players can see/find. It looks like to me that the quoted text is a merging of the original notes and Mentzer's additions that weren't cleaned up very well.

Quote:
A black iron coffin stands by the northwest
wall; its iron lid, in which a silver
cross has been inlaid, lies beside it. Atop
the lid is a forgotten scroll case.

An invisible sarcophagus is on the stand.
Dispel magic, detect invisibility, dispel illusion,
or dust of appearance reveals the following:

The sarcophagus has no top. You see a
vampire corpse, clad in black and
appearing hale—except for the stake
through its heart.

T1-T4 wasn't exactly a well-edited module.

I might have to go back and look at this one; none of my players ever made it through The Moathouse.

Yep, as wouldn't dispel illusion/dispel magic sort of...um... also not just dispel the invisibility on the coffin (and its contents), but also the illusion cast upon what is in the coffin? Gotta roll for each effect of course, but it could! Laughing Resolve by taking the coffin out into the sunlight, or by figuring out what a certain poem beginning with "On three, in six, lies nine..." means (assuming it was found prior to this encounter).
