The husk spider guards the tunnel between the Pagoda and Munasukaru’s Penance. Perception DC 22: The spider is desiccated and moves awkwardly.

The Pinnacle and Writhing Tower

I simplified this encounter as the PCs engaged this encounter right after the swine shogun which was a pretty epic battle. I also changed it to a straight up cyclops-oni (a reskinned cyclops).

Ithkarsus – Epic Kraken Cleric

Looking to use Raising of Redshore (Dungeon 092) as a gateway to epic leveling as well as a way to bring the octopi into the Oni Wars.  Here is one of the more interesting enemies converted to 5e.
