Slug Caverns of Deceit part 2: Bosses & Locations

So amalgamating all this random detail will take more work and makes me wonder about the order of things in the book I'm using. But I wrote it so its my fault. All using my Redbrick dungeon book downloadable from my downloads page.

Rumours of a local dungeon abound and a shifty evil apprentice mistaking adventurers for murder hobos make immoral offers and invites them to the dungeon. The dungeon features a cult who have hidden a bubble of luxury and vice in a slug filled ancient cave. The caves were carved by acidic mouths of elder slug abhumans long ago as an act of worship. Their elder slug ancestor became a full demon later and now uses vice and corrupting dreams from its prison. 

The sorcerer Yoric on the run from court for treason has made a vice cult to gain money and spread influence. Unknowingly the elder slug demon and cult of the lower caves has been having a strange influence.

Yoric knows several nobles, plotters, local merchants who attend the cult for sex and drugs. 

He rescued a woman Suulin from a mad druid she had loved and robbed and she has joined the cult as an agent. She introduced the bandit leader Basil Abbot notorious for robbing the elderly and other soft targets. The lower temple has been awakening, attracting creatures and slug abhumans. It wants adventurers to enter and free the god from its prison.
