The Crawling Jungle

The horrors of the Abyss are without end. Unfortunately, some of them don't seem content to remain on the Abyss. Presented here is an Abyssal realm that has been torn free of its extraplanar foundations and now wanders the Prime Material Plane. It manifests as a strangely mobile tropical rainforest complete with legions of fiendish dinosaurs, monstrous vermin, and sinister cultists. This realm is known as the Crawling Jungle.

In this month's Random Encounters, we'll explore several facets of this region, and you can use any of them in other areas of your choosing to add a dose of terror to your game.

About the Author

James Jacobs has always loved dinosaurs.
