|Region:||The Misty Mountains|
|Area:||Southern High Pass|
A cave filled with fissure-worms is found at the eastern mountain sides of the southern High Pass, but also the immediate area around the cave is called Writhenbores. Coming from Hrimbarg adventurers follow the eastern mountain-side and will find a pass through the ridge to a cave mouth. From the Camp Site Fire of the area, after rounding the mound, run north-east to Writhenbores, then select either of the two cave mouths; the western entrance just by the ridge, or the eastern entrance.
- This complex of caves called the Writhenbores seems to be formed by a great mass of boulders, larger than even the giants could hope to lift. How they came to be this way is a mystery -– perhaps by the fall of an entire peak upon the mountainside below or some equally cataclysmic event.
- The caves are oddly warmer than the wind-stripped slopes outside, possibly heated by a warm spring welling up from deep below the mountain. However, any traveller hoping to take shelter within would be strongly advised to look elsewhere, for this same warmth has drawn a large and deadly brood of worms into these caves, and to carelessly wander within is certain death. — Deed text
