Snakes and vines, the best the jungle can offer…

The jungle has always been a fascinating place for me. The lush greenery, damp air and ancient ruined cities makes for a fantastic place for adventure, both for me inte the real world, and for the PCs in my home game. The main difference between the real world and your preferred fantasy world is of course the unique and dangerous creatures that dwell there, I don’t count on running into any lizardmen when hiking in the jungle.

As a game master, one thing I love about the jungle is the fact that it’s easy to create interesting and thematic environmental hazards and obstacles, people tend to expect quicksand, strangling vines and boiling pits of mud when exploring the jungle, which makes for some epic adventuring. Below is a D66 table with 36 unique jungle encounter, concocted to infuse your narrative with the wild, unpredictable essence of the jungle, and they all work perfectly in fantasy tabletop role-playing game, such as Adventurous, DnD 5e and Cairn.

D66 Jungle encounters

Just roll 2D6 where one die determiens the tens digit and the other the ones digit. A Roll of 2 & 6 means “26: An enchanted clearing where time moves differently.”.
