The Sacred Bog is a location in Point Lookout, reached via the Sacred Bog Entrance on the westernmost side of the map.


To the Point Lookout tribals, this punga infested swamp is the most sacred of areas in Point Lookout. Not only is the bayou lined with punga fruit, but the Mother Punga lies at the end of it. The tribal initiation has one breathe deep the spores of the Mother Punga, inducing a hallucinogenic walkabout through the bog. Should the initiate return to the Ark & Dove Cathedral, they are welcomed into the order.


The bog is is a circular and rocky wetland populated with swamplurks, swamplurk queens and swamp ghouls. The path is abundant with wild punga plants, more than any other location in Point Lookout. A very large plant referred to as the Mother Punga is at the end of the path. There are 40 punga plants surrounding the Mother Punga alone.
