While the Lost River continues on much deeper into the Mega Delve, this is the last small scale map in the Lost River Cave complex. There are still two standard scale maps to go (linked to Tuesday’s western map of the Lost River Cave) for this node of the MegaDelve, but this will be the last small scale (20′ / square) map until I get around to the Necropolis node.
Linking to the north with the Lost River Cave (West) map posted on Tuesday, this smaller cave shows the various paths the Lost River has taken over the centuries through the bedrock in this area. Two old riverbeds remain bare now as the river runs through a tight passage without airspace until it rejoins its old riverbed and departs off the southern side of the map. One of the old riverbed tunnels has been added to, with a small structure built into the cave walls. Further south a second similar structure has been expanded from the old cave formations but concealed from general access because it is about 18 feet above the cavern floor.
Religious outcasts from the caves north of the Lost River Cave have settled into these areas, eking out a living on the mushrooms that grow near the Lost River as well as the occasional scraps collected from raids into other portions of the Mega Delve and handouts from a few sympathizers to the north.
And here’s a version of the map without the gridlines:
Thanks go out again to the awesome patrons who keep the Dodecahedron going and are essentially paying me to keep working on this insane megadelve through my Patreon Campaign!
