146 FORBIDDEN CAVE. The froglodytes know to avoid this cave, because it is the home of a subterranean lizard.
Subterranean Lizard (AC 5; MV 12”; HD 6; hp 36; #AT 1 bite; D 2-12; SA Die 20 indicates double damage (4-24); XP 566)
There is a 30% chance that the lizard will have its head sticking out of the cave entrance into Room 145, waiting for prey to pass by. If this is so, it will have to move backwards into Room 146 if it needs to retreat (half speed) and if it is killed here, its huge corpse will block the entrance.
Within the cave proper there are the bones of numerous creatures, including fish, froglodytes, and men. Six broken chests are here, and a total of 3680 silver spanners and 9 citrine gems (50 gold crescent value each) are spilled on the floor.
