Lair of the Frogs

Lair of the Frogs

This week’s map isn’t the promised detail maps of the Ruins of Tuhrek, but is instead a full detail & cross-section map of the Lair of the Frogs. After a clumsy and abortive failure at destroying the Temple of the Frog in old Blackmoor that ended in a near TPK and the one survivor leaving the region to find work as a short-order cook (seriously!), the frog-like humanoids and their giant frog companions became something of a nuissance critter in one campaign.

The Lair of the Frogs was a low-level adventure to launch a new campaign for those same players that flubbed the Temple of the Frog. It’s an old hill fortress and temple that has been long abandonned and now taken over by the frogs. The upper level is mostly abandonned, even by the frogs, except as a guard post (most of the guards end up being more concerned with catching flies and entertaining themselves than actually watching for people approaching the main entrance to the temple.

The main level of the temple is lived in by the lowest-ranking of the frogs. It’s the lower level, accessible through the main level or through the secret entrance in the roots of a rotted-out tree in the swamp that contains a majority of the frogs. The lower level is very damp and nasty, and the doors have either rotted away or are stuck so firmly that the frogs can’t be bothered to open them.

In the original adventure here, the frogs were keeping their prisoners on the ground level of the temple (near the well room in the North West corner of that level), so the party didn’t have to go into the heart of the frog-infested basement.
