A matter of luck: The odds are against you here (success chance: 40%)


Died in the shell

Whatever was meant to break forth died centuries ago. This egg is long pre- the Fall. Perhaps from before any city was pulled into the Neath.

Alternative Success

"Good god!"

You may not be an ornithologist, but you can be reasonably certain that a human arm is not the usual thing found in an egg. Is this not, in fact, an egg? Could it be the pellet from some man-eating owl?

Alternative Failure

Not even any meat on it
