A long-dead behemoth has rotted away to bleached bone here, yet out of its open mouth still pools viscous blood…

Skull Cave Battle Map, banner


What this creature was, how old it is, or how it was killed are all mysteries. All that is known, is that blood persistently pools outside its open maw. It’s no shock then that this would be a popular gathering place for dark ritualists, carnivorous beasts, and things worse and otherwordly…

Tell me, what is your imagination whispering to you? What encounter can you think of for this strange and uninviting place, and what reason would you give your players to approach it at all?

Let us all know in the comments!
