Temple of the False Serpent

Fan art of Temple of the False Serpent, by Son of Joxer.[art 1]

Urukaxl is part of the Swavain Islands south of Nicodranas in the Lucidian Ocean. It is surrounded by the Inkclaw Reef. Most sailors avoid it, believing it to be dangerous[1] or cursed.[2]


The island of Urukaxl is covered in a thick jungle.


The island is inhabited by lizardfolk and yuan-ti who regularly fight each other for its control.


A Temple was built here in honor of Uk'otoa and later taken over by yuan-ti who rededicated it to The Cloaked Serpent. The yuan-ti built a city around the temple.[3]

"O Captain, Who's Captain?" (2x36)Edit

The Mighty Nein set sail on The Mistake for Urukaxl, hoping to meet up with Captain Avantika.

"Dangerous Liaisons" (2x37)Edit

Jamedi Cosko returns to the Squall Eater from his mission to scout Urukaxl. He warns Avantika and the Mighty Nein that the jungle is inhabited by both lizardfolk and snake men. The temple they are looking for is surrounded by a city of snake men.

"Welcome to the Jungle" (2x38)Edit

"Temple of the False Serpent" (2x39)Edit

"Dubious Pursuits" (2x40)Edit

Avantika put the first Cloven Crystal in place to unlock Uk'otoa, causing a flood in the temple. The waters burst out of the temple, flooding the city. Avantika, Jamedi Cosko, and the Mighty Nein escaped before drowning but were pursued by a group of yuan-ti through the jungle.
