The gem in the shadow trope (where, after defeating a shadow, a gems drop to the ground) seems to be too common on adventures (published or not). There is a origin for this silly trope?This is the fist I've heard of this, so as far as I can tell, it's not a common trope at all. And yes, it is also silly.
Richard Baker did this on Thornkeep's Accursed Halls, a couple of GM's who i had played also did this on their adventures (which i can't tell if they written it or was published, to long ago). I figured it was some classic encounter or something about the shadow's shadowy lore, guess i figured wrong. Thanks!
