The Forbidden Jungle


The Forbidden Jungle has never been explored thouroughly, for the simple reason that many of the explorers are never seen again.

The Forbidden Jungle is just that, a jungle.  The perimeter and surrounding areas have been thouroghly explored, and have been mapped up to ten miles into the dense growth.  But the interior remains a dark mystery.

It is well known that the Forbidden Jungle is infested with dangerous creatures, including amphibious pirahnas, carnivorous locusts, venomous birds, hostile and mobile plants, flying snakes, and frighteningly intelligent predators.  And those are just the documented species.  There are also the things you would normally expect, such as regular (and highly poisonous) snakes, lizards, and frogs, crocodilians, stinging and biting insects, and poisonous plants.  There are rumors of people living deep within the jungle, but no one who’s ever gotten that far has ever come back.  People have found what appear to be territorial markings in the jungle.  But no one really knows for sure.

The Jungle is a place where something seems to have gone horribly wrong, and nature has decided to eliminate people with extreme predjudice.  Sometimes, those who dare venture into the dark unknown of the jungle return with hideous deformities.  Sometimes they go in with hideous deformities, and return without them.  Of course, many do not return at all.  No one really knows what happens in the jungle once you are beyond the immediate reach of civilization.

Nehhh... It seems quite unfinished, there's really no detail. I've no concept of what might be unique about the jungle or anything very interesting about it. I'm sure it could be made into something.

Okay, a jungle that actively despises and works against humans. A decent premise.

The old clock tower stands tall, but the bulk of the uppermost storey is crumbling and unsafe, with gaping cracks in the walls. The metal struts and girders supporting the great bronze bells are still intact, though, and the bells survive. The grotesque gargoyles and arabesques which decorated the original design have either fallen into the street (once or twice a year more bricks fall from the tower, prompting calls for its demolition) or have been defaced, but the main doors to the clock tower are still intact and show signs of being kept in working order. This is the home of The Captains, clad in raggedy clothes, with sooty faces, and perpetually runny noses. But behind each set of eyes is the look of a survivor. They live to stick together and make it through each day. Older than their years in many ways, the friendship they share with each other and Wims ghost keeps the core of a childs innocence and hope alive in each. But they are still very suspicious of outsiders. They are a group of street children who live in the clock tower. Some are orphans, some runaways, and some nomads who occasionally return to their homes. But they’re all poor, dirty and perpetually hungry, as well as being wily, unscrupulous and mischievous in a fairly brutal way. Enough of them have suffered at the hands of adults for all of them to be wary of any grown-ups, particularly ones who ask too many questions, although with hard work and a lot of food it might be possible to win the confidence or even the trust of a few of them.
