The Writing Deep

The Writhing Deep

The Writhing Deep is the site of the Hive Zukk'ash[1] silithid infestation in southeastern Feralas. The Zukk'ash silithid are driving the nearby gnolls into a frenzy, which is causing them to try and head north, attacking Camp Mojache.

According to locals of Feralas and Zekhan's report after the Fourth War, silithid still swarm in the Writhing Deep, and there is a tug-of-war between gnolls, yetis, silithid, and Horde going on in Feralas.[2] Help from Camp Mojache squashed the insects around the hive, but the silithid and their countless eggs remain protected within. According to Rexxar, it is only a matter of time before the next generation of silithid hatches.[1]

From Lands of Mystery:

"Giant bugs, the elves said, inhabit this strange ruin in the southern part of the wilderness. I took a side trip there and looked it over, but it was no ruin - more like a purple blot on the landscape, with gigantic insect legs sticking out of it! I got close enough to see there really were massive bugs flying and crawling around this place. A hive of some sort. Ick. Insects have no history or culture, so I can't say I was particularly intrigued. I made a couple of sketches of the hive, then was on my way. I found out later that the locals refer to the insects as "silithid." This would not be my last encounter with them. Unfortunately."[3]
