The rough rocks of Irloga Isle in the open seas beyond Khalesh-Sonket is home to a small cult of demon-worshippers, said to be the last remnants of the old Semut clans. Here they raise sheep and goats and make sacrifices to their ancient demon gods. The island is home to a dozen small demonic shrines in small caves and niches and carved stone pillars. But none are as important or impressive as the shrine of Eskarna.
A wide natural cave with a floor smoothed by untold ages of foot traffic leads into the stony hillside past side passages and massive stone pillars decorated with demonic bas reliefs. One side cave leads to a small river that runs out to sea nearby (5), the other leads up to chambers used by worshipers and occasionally the priesthood (when the demonic guardian in 12 is in a bad mood).
This side area also has a bricked over cave area (10) that was a shrine to another demon who has fallen out of favor.
The main shrine (12) is up some shallow stairs from the cave and is a massive arched dome decorated with tapestries depicting sacrifices and dark rituals all looked over by a massive statue of the demon Eskarna. The whole chamber and the shrines off it are guarded by an indolent and occasionally very violent Type V demon and her two Type IV “attendants” who alternately try to keep people from bothering her, or purposefully push her into a rage themselves when they become bored.
The 1200 dpi versions of the map were drawn at a scale of 300 pixels per square and are 12,000 pixels (40 squares) wide. To use this with a VTT you would need to resize the squares to either 70 pixels (for 5′ squares) or 140 pixels (for 10′ squares) – so resizing it to either 2,800 pixels wide or 5,600 pixels wide, respectively.
