The first area of Pinemoon Cave

You enter into a short tunnel lit by a lantern atop a barrel. The tunnel opens out into the first of two cavern rooms, where you will encounter two leveled wolves. There are many rock pillars in this first room, which is brightly lit by three braziers on stands. Around this chamber are several deer skulls mounted upon posts.

There is a small tunnel opposite you upon entering the chamber. It takes a couple of turns before opening out into the main area containing two vampires and one master vampire. There is a vampire stood near where you enter on a raised section above the main part of the room, there is an earthern ramp down at the far end in front of you. The vampire will have their back to you unless they have been alerted to your presence. The master vampire is visible at the back of the room wandering near a podium on a raised area. The third vampire is wandering near some wooden benches arranged in front of the podium.

The podium

Below the raised section you enter in via is a table with several barrels on either side containing foodstuffs and ingredients as well as two sets of shelves further to the right. These hold eight bottles of alto wine, four bottles of wine and a random potion of stamina. Against the southern wall of the room is another table with a Nord corpse on top that may be reanimated during the fight. There are more barrels either side of the table and a table to the right with another bottle of alto wine on top.

On the raised area with the podium are two lit braziers on stands, one on either side of the podium and a novice-locked chest. A wooden and an earthen ramp lead up to this area. There is a short tunnel leading to a bedroom, hosting an unowned double bed and an empty cage. There is also an unlocked large chest. You can find a copy of the Illusion skill book Incident at Necrom on a small table next to the cage.

The cave contains the highest concentration of fly amanita in the game. A total of 66 fly amanita mushrooms can be found growing throughout the cave's chambers and its passageways. The cave is contrasted between brightly lit areas and deep shadows allowing for easy sneaking.
