APPENDIX C: ENCOUNTERS IN THE SHALLOWS



Random Encounters

(Many drawn from the worthy Denizens of the Swamps, Bogs, and Fens submission!)


D20 

1. Leeches! Either regular leeches or Pacranite Leeches. In any case, there will be a lot of them. 

2. A PC steps into the territory of one of many Sabre Crabs which lair along the shore's edge. 

3. Swamp Rays skulking in the muddy waters. 

4. Greenflies-Aquatic parasitic wasps making nuisences of themselves. 

5. Northern Sandkoi - one of these beasts lives in the lake and can be encountered on either shore. If rerolled, another large, dangerous fresh-water encounter could be substituted. 

6. Blackfly/Mosquito Swarm - An unusally dense swarm of the little besties will lay siege to the party. (Unlike mosquitoes, Blackflies take a small bite of flesh). 

 7. Wrapper waiting to wrap someone. 

8. Jewel-of-the-Mire Lightshow at nighttime. 

9. Periccus vine- Boon for Alchemists. 

10. Silverblooms- Not dangerous, nice plant. 

11. Fresh water Giant Mussel- Watch your step. 

12. Karnan - A turtle to eat, or be eaten by. 

13. Giant Dragonfly - 10-12' long, wingspan double that. 

14. Giant Waterbeetle - 6' long with short-sword sized mandibles. 

15. Freshwater Kraken - Not as big as sea-going kraken, but large enough to be a serious issue. 

16. Moose - Large, grumpy swamp-dwelling deer relative. 

17. Giant Eel, Electric, Freshwater. 

18-20. Water-borne defender patrol (if actively defended)

APPENDIX E: GARDEN AREA ENCOUNTERS


1. Giant Foxglove - Found in small patches throughout the garden. One should not remove any dustmasks in the garden. 

2. Death Nettle - Plant has razor-sharp spines all highly venomous and unpleasant. A passive plant, but wil overhang paths and be easily brushed against unless PCs are cautious. 

3. Pixie Flowers - Found on mundane or not-so-mundane garden statuary. 

4. The Wizard's Rube - A showpiece flower that moves on it's own. 

5. Samhain's Kiss- Evil spirits could be nearby. 

6. Arcanis - A small patch, easily overlooked, but can qualify as 'treasure' in this strange locale. 

7. Rapacious Snapdragon - Will launch many vicious biting attacks. 

8. Crystal Hornets - Flying about - will investigate magically equipped intruders. 

9. Singeweed - If distirbed will trigger a chemical reaction creating great amounts of heat 

10. Spitting Euphorbia - Will direct spurts of poisonous, caustic liquid at intruders. 

11. Miremoss - Miremoss is used on most pathways through the garden. Normally there are stepping stones available to allow passage without becoming... mired. Paranoid PC's might avoid the stepping stones, suspecting traps. 

14. Garden statuary (mundane or animated and dangerous) 

15. Vissewort Patch 

16. Scorpian Grass lining a Miremoss covered pathway. 

17. Compost Pile full of Myrie Bugs 

18. Group of Voracious Slugs 

19. Regular tall grass infested with Grassbiters

21. Tatterdemalions-of-the-Flailing-Leper making a spectacle of themselves. 

22-30. Defender Patrol (If fortress actively defended, otherwise reroll.)

Would love to have enough encounters to make all of the tables percential! But that would be silly :) Go to Comment

Will try and reformat that part tonight. A map would be ideal, but I have not had much luck getting pictures to work here...
Edit: Sadly code does not seem to work.... Go to Comment

It's 2 miles + the area of the center in diameter, so 3 miles in diameter would be a suggestion. Go to Comment

I appreciate the feedback, and of course I have a few return comments, though I agree with you in the main.

It was intended as a fortress and as a submission for the War quest, so my mind was not focused so much on peaceful or quirky encounters, though the sub would benefit from their inclusion - and I am looking forward to your additions :) Go to Comment

Thank you AG. I did want to add 'fixed' encounters, but lacked the inspiration and energy at the time. Yours are a wonderful addition and I will attempt to build on these as time allows! Go to Comment

Once again I am humbled by my colleagues here at the Citadel:)

Amazing sub and I admit having only read it, to see where and how my 'crumb' was involved. But having done so I am the benefactor. Many thanks for drawing my attention to it. Go to Comment

Top notch material. It's rare that I see material with enough quality and depth that it should make it into a book of it's own, but this submission does exactly that. My only real beef with the submission is that the formatting which allows it to be posted actually detracts from it's readability, which is a mark of it's high quality and usability. While I seldom recommend it, this is exactly the kind of material that needs to be published for gaming. Go to Comment
