Episode Map

Hell's Maw is the second episode of Heretic.


Hell's Maw takes place on a volcanic island, which is a staging ground for D'Sparil's armies. The island is located within an unspecified other dimension, possibly a part of the Outer Worlds.

The episode's theme is focused on natural cave-like environments, as well as a juxtaposition of fire and ice. Most of the action takes place in outdoor areas. Buildings are temple-like structures or crude dwellings. At the heart of the Hell's Maw are several great dimensional portals, one of which leads to the Serpent Rider's Underwater Lair.

Guarding these portals are Maulotaurs (1-3, depending on your skill level), the bosses of this episode.
