Last post I put up six of the various caves of the legendary Caves of Chaos, a cavern-infested box canyon overrun by vile humanoids northeast of the Keep on the Borderlands. But Five is the true number of chaos (ignore the fools who claim it is 8), so here are five more caves of chaos, including the dread Shrine of Evil Chaos!

Bugbears and the Shunned Cave (Caves G & H)

The residents of these caves are significantly stronger individually than those of the earlier caves in the set. This set includes the lair of the foul bugbears who are fortunately few in number, as well as the wet “shunned cave” which is home to an owlbear and a foul ooze.

As if to drive the point home that the end of the box canyon is dangerous, it also includes the labyrinth of a mighty minotaur – enchanted of course so that the intersections are always in the wrong directions and it becomes ridiculously easy to become lost and confused.

Gnoll Lair (Cave J)

South of the final Shrine of Evil Chaos (and connected via secret passage) is the lair of a small number of the fierce hyena-warriors that some call beastmen and others call gnolls.

Shrine of Evil Chaos (Cave K)

And finally, the Shrine of Evil Chaos itself – the centrepiece of this collection of caves, ominously looking down over the box canyon from the back. This extensive set of caves has been finished and cut and most of it bears little resemblance to the natural caves that were once here. This is the home of the evil that is bringing the many humanoids of the caves together in one place and keeping them from each others’ throats.
