When locations as lethal as this are brought up, I have to wonder about how they would be used in play? Complete obliteration from one wrong move? Lost, sure, but unrecoverable? Of course it is easy for a GM to change to suit their own game.
They would have to rely on the big, oblivious creatures, as humans would have to be dead asleep, paralysed or tied up not to fight back against these monsters! I imagine corking one of these with a club would be good sport :)
Or if they are Japanese Hornet agile,then that swamp can just adventure itself, thank you very much.
This is great location/idea though it prompts a few questions:
What happened to the volunteers? Did they all telesplat? Maybes are nice, but concrete details provide more assistance to GMs. We can always change it if we want to, but its nice to have a starting point.
As for detecting the edge, I would expect livestock (cheap ones, like goats) would be quite suitable. Does the teleport work on unaccompanied physical objects? If so, thrown stones could be used to map the edge. Go to Comment
