Map Connections to the Lost River Caves East and the Ogre Base

1. Low Ceiling
This large, broad cavern has a rather low ceiling; only about six feet in most places. The reek of rotting garbage fills the area, and piles of refuse are everywhere here. There are several dozen Ratmen bodies here, including a Ratlord and a Ratbrute.
2. Ratbrute
This room is filled with reeking garbage and rats. The trash partially obscures an old forge, now stuffed with trash. There had been a Ratbrute in here, but he be dead now.
3. Rat Room
Another smelly room filled with garbage and rats. It got kinda explored, but not thoroughly.
4. Ratlord’s Room
Another room filled with reeking garbage, but this one holds a large nest/bed and a heavy chest. Several greedy ratlings were trying to break it open but were killed off by delvers. The chest held several thousand coins (mostly copper), a few healing potions, and two small casks of truly awful rotgut whiskey. The key for this chest was recovered on a ratlord’s corpse.
5. The Bone Pile The tunnel ends at a ledge overlooking a lower cavern. There is a precarious bridge made of several long boards from this ledge to another, with a dark tunnel leading off from there. The lower cavern floor is completely covered in bones, to the point where you actually can’t tell how deep the bone pile is. The bone pile slopes downwards from the ledges to the south end of the cavern.
The bones are picked clean, though two ratmen younglings were here sniffing around for something to gnaw upon. The Ratmen know about the secret door, but haven’t figured out how to open it. The door can be opened with a lever found about two feet off the floor (as shown on the Deep Temple Map) with Up Down Down Left Right Down.
6. Rat Central
This large cavern is roughly circular, about 150 feet across. The ceiling high above is barely visible in the light of several burning braziers. The center of the room is filled by a gigantic stone mound that has been crudely carved into the shape of a leering demonic head, easily 50 feet across and 50 feet high. Circling around this head is a roughly-made wooden platform about 20 feet above the floor, with a narrow catwalk leading to a ledge and tunnels high above the floor. Part of the platform has been burned in a fire. A massive kettle drum, nearly ten feet across, sits broken on the floor in the northwestern part of the room. A Ratbrute had been beating the drum to sound the alarm that echoed throughout the area. There were many, many Ratmen corpses here from the big battle.
8. The Front Doors A pair of heavy doors here are carved with the large skull symbols of Ghul the Half God. The eyes of the skulls are holes through the door, from which the chittering speech of Ratmen could be heard from beyond.
No one wanted to test the strength of the doors (or the guards behind them).
