Dungeon 5: The House of Eternal Night Map

Our Fifth Dungeon is The House of Eternal Night.

With this one I have decided to add a bit more detail. This time I am adding door information in the rooms that they belong in. I have also added Religious artefacts and some ideas on books, and scrolls that may be laying around the place as well.

Dungeon Creation Information

Location: In a Swamp
Creator:  Humans
Dungeon Purpose: Temple or Shrine
History: Creators Destroyed by a Natural Designer

The house of eternal night is an old cult that worship the formless nameless beings of the negative planes. They shroud themselves in shadows and illusion. For years they sacrificed countless innocents to the dark powers they revered.

They built the House of Eternal Night on the edges of a large swampy area, full of reptiles and other carrion creatures that would help clean up after their rituals.

When it was created, the House was a marge large edifice than currently sits above the murky waters of the swamp, which over time has claimed the majority structure and its cult inhabitants.
