Broken windows are windows that have been destroyed, smashed, or fallen into ruin. They may be another means to enter a building if the doorway is blocked or otherwise inaccessible. Moonlight or sunlight through a broken window can help set a tone. Broken windows may be found in ruins, damaged buildings, and haunted houses.
If there is broken glass beneath the window, those walking upon it may make a sound and alert anyone nearby they are present.
