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 air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
