20 BEYOND THE HEDGE MAZE. As the party leaves the hedge maze behind, they will see the gently rolling land of the valley of the farther Grounds in front of them. Rainbow Lake dominates the view, with its multicolor waters, boathouse, and island. The wooded terrain behind it is clearly visible. The sunken house at Area 22 can be seen and there is a 50% chance that 1d4 worker thermites will be visible, though they will ignore any person who does not approach within thirty feet.
Thermite Workers (AC 4; MV 15”; HD 2+2; #AT 1 bite; D 1-6; SA +4 to hit with blistering spittle for 2-8; XP 50+3/hp)
The landscape is one dotted with trees. Areas with thick tree growth are shown on the map. For purposes of encounter distance for wandering monsters, treat as scrub (see the Dungeon Master's Guide page 49)
