Friday Fast Map: Ogre mother Cave



A local cave thought to be a witch hole long ago has been blamed for the disappearance of a children and animals over the years. In ancient times cave folk came here for secret ceremonies. The men performed hunting rites in the upper caves. The deepest cave is home to a lady ogre magi shaman. She used to receive sacrifices to not eat people, give secrets or treasure. She tolerates women who bring a sacrifice and attacks men. He has long hair, is naked with blue-black-grey flesh and a blood red mouth with fangs. She has long black hair, tusks and long iron claws.

The chimney has some old handholds in key points indicating past use.

Water is icy cold and could be a hypothermia problem after an hour of being soaked

Other dangers include giant bats including a doom bat, piercers and prehistoric mummies of the elders.  A cave fisher and cave lobsters might be a problem.
