d100 Strange Gateways

Just wanted to do something handy for my DnD Exiles Campaign or Psychon game or Gamma World or Metamorphosis alpha games or any other d20 fantasy games. Exchange magic or science or psionics or whatever as needed. I could do a more "serious" space one later later.

Killed over a hundred ogres with wall of fire in game by being faster than them and them being too dumb to use ranged weapons till too late. Left 3 for rest of party.

  1. Give a roll on a camapign apocalypse table along with this one and instant multi-session adventure setup for plane-hopping campaign.

  2. 27 is a nod to CS Lewis, "The Magicianz Nephew?"

    1. actually he stole it verbatim from william morris story wood between worlds - probably his most blatent lifting. William morris very under rated fantasy writer
