1d20 Dangerous Urban Wasteland Encounters Table For Your Old School Campaigns

Among the sands, weird wastelands, and half remembered time trails there are many other travelers and searchers after the  strange & unusual. These travelers are often beings of opportunity or dangerous powers in the wastes that should be approached with caution. These travelers are often those who haunt the byways and paths of adventure and glory for their own gain. They're beings of means and survivors in harsh wastelands of the apocalypse. Often they are travelers from other worlds and beings of power who wear the shades or illusion of humanity, caution should be exercised around such beings as these.

There is a 40% chance of these travelers having some minor mutation or magical abilities, there is a 10% chance of them being far more potent then the players might be expecting. There is a 2% chance of these travelers having a major mutation or magical ability. Adventurers should tread carefully in the wastes when around these beings.

“Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places.”
― H.P. Lovecraft
