I'm running Hoard of The Dragon Queen for some friends and have hit a bit of a roadblock in map building with the dragon hatchery. The map
has two staircases at the end of area 3 leading to areas 8 and 9, meaning that the cave can split off three ways.
While I can take a guess as to how I'm supposed to lay out the mushrooms I'd hate to get the layout wrong as I've heard that
this encounter is very lethal. While I have faith in my friends to clear out any encounter I set they tend to approach traps like lemmings.
The question is:
are the mushrooms in the centre of area 3 with the paths leading around the walls of the cave or are the paths referred to the ones that lead to areas 8 and 9?
I know this seems like kind of a obvious question but with not much free time this week to put everything together I don't want to rush and slip up.
