1d10 Unexpected Lovecraftian Reproductions Encounter Table For Your Old School Campaigns

I saw the body spread on that dank stone,
And knew those things which feasted were not men;
I knew this strange, grey world was not my own,
But Yuggoth, past the starry voids—and then
The body shrieked at me with a dead cry,
And all too late I knew that it was I!Fungai From Yuggoth
HP Lovecraft
Someplace between the dark of stars there are chance encounters with lesser gods and goddesses of  Outer Darkness. Beings brought into existence by the dreams of Azathoth and his lesser spawn. These beings sometimes take on enough of an existence to meet alien life forms enough to be worshiped and gain a toe hold upon existence but their very nature can be inimical to mankind. Many of these beings represent alien aspects of the corners of existence and may bend the biology as well as sanity of the targets of such a meeting.
A chance meeting with an ancient fertility higher planar life form is always fraught with danger, insanity and dread. Here then is a chart of the results of such an encounter and the unintended reproduction result.
Note that these results may affect male, female, or any engendered individual. Alien biology does not care of such petty trivialities. Horror and terror comes to all.
