If the bad guy was really powerful enough to make a NEW hole to the Out=
side then
the place is really like Snake Pipe Hollow. No cure, you can only preve=
nt it
spreading by destroying it like Pete said. That means also the Ogre is =
a Chaos
*Hero* and that his power is growing until they destroy this place.

If he *only* made a copy of what one of the Chaos god made by a ritual =
HeroQuest then I think that it can be undone by calling on the god(s) t=
defeated that Chaos god, also by a ritual / HeroQuest. For example if t=
he ogre
called Wakboth then a Storm Bull follower can crush him with a boulder =
of True
Stone (finding that boulder will be a proper atonement for their sin).

In both case they can look for help from the Darkness. Uz are the most =
chaos fighter (that's why Arkat became at troll to finish Gbaji) but wh=
at they
do is definitely unpleasant for humans.
