1d20 Random Deep Space Comet Finds Table For Your Old School Space Based Campaigns

Adventurers and deep space explorers sometimes need a seemingly easy mark between missions to earn a few extra credits & ease the time between space stations by providing themselves with some well earned extra treasure and adventure opportunities.
Comets can provide a mini world of adventure and a few old school encounters to boot. Here's a quick chart of such finds that can easy the moments between the big score or even provide a star ship crew with a few cheap thrills.

1d20 Random Deep Space Comet Finds Table 
  1. Space Craft fuel grade methane in ice form that can cause 1d8 points of damage if a spark ignites it. There may be 1d4 minor 'space leeches' guarding their mating patch of material 
  2. A Cat From Saturn AC 4 HP 10 Damage 2d8 claw, looking for prey and a space explorer is the perfect meal to chew on. The monster will turn the astronaut to goo and process the whole thing for fuel and mass 
  3. A pool of liquid solar slime similar to green slime from the Monster Manual but capable of living on a comet's surface as a space born fungus life form. 
  4. Spinning organic crystals capable of cutting perfectly into a space suit for 2d6 points of damage arranged as a lattice across the surface of a comet. Blends into the background. 
  5. A space banshee energy life form, a form of undead that drains anything it finds AC 9 HT7 Damage 2d6 per strike regenerates as troll. Starving and very hungry. Has energy crystal hoard of 1d8 crystals for harvesting. 
  6. Alien pirate skeleton left behind by a raiding party. The skeleton has 1d8 minor items for salvage. 40% chance of ghost haunting those who find this poor wretch.
