25. Huge stone sphinx walks across the land. Those that block its path are assaulted with heat rays from the eyes, sonic attack roars, and megaton stomps. Inside are a maze of burial vaults, crypts, catacombs, sarcophagi, speulchres, and ossuaries through which strange humanoids with hawk, ibis, cow, cat, lion, cobra, crocodile, frog, hippo, jackal, vulture, fish, mongoose, and ram heads stalk, battling giant scorpions, carnivorous apes, ravenous crocodiles, fierce dwarves, plagues of scarab beetles, serpentine dragons, rampaging bulls, sexually aggressive baboons, dire golden praying mantises with ruby eyes, phallic consuming elephantfish, sandmen, mummies, Typhonic Beasts, poisonous serpopards, and land-bound phoenix birds.
26. Hill-covering eight-headed and eight-tailed land dragon. Among the labyrinthian internal organs, clans of fierce warriors and proud monks battle black-shrouded assassins and tattooed ruffians. Crazed mountain wizards, sorcerous hags and white-robed priests aided by virginal maidens choose sides in the wars, aided by crow-men, turtle-men, shape-shifting foxes, twin-tailed catgirls, prankster racoon dogs, cannibalistic giant spiders who can appear as beautiful women, and red and blue ogres. Meanwhile a variety of ghosts and goblins as well as living umbrellas, lanterns and musical instruments watch from the sidelines.
27. A massive wooden junk sails across the sky. Amidst the golden pagodas, koi ponds, coral palaces, jade temples, and cedar shrines are massive treasure vaults full of lucky talismans, sacred scriptures, gold, magical cornocopias of food and drink, gems, enchanted tools, and jewelry. These are well guarded by seven powerful beings and their talking animal servants.
28. Monumental human skull ambulates across the land on thousands of tiny legs. Lava streams from the red-glowing eye sockets and it's cavernous mouth is enshrouded in darkness. Within are the factories and furnaces of the enigmatic metalmancer, an antediluvian colossus served by his gold and silver automatons, steel spiders, bronze scorpions, brass crabs, lead leopards, copper centipedes, clockwork homunculi, and steam-powered beetles.
29. Giant Jack O'Lantern propelled by hundreds of leafy vines.

30. Alabaster colossal statue of a nude woman, with sapphire eyes, ruby lips, and [REDACTED]. A variety of slimes, oozes, molds, jellies, and gelatinous cubes are continually vomited forth from the mouth. Meanwhile, purple, gray, and red worms are frequently excreted. Visitors to the mazy tunnels within will find the door to Wonderland (or perhaps, A Red & Pleasant Land).
