d100 Things Falling From The Stars

Some crap fell from the sky and wow adventurers do a hero. The End.

Players hanging in a pub too long or want to visit every shop keeper in town. Time to drop a star stone overhead and locals can all panic and stay in their homes in fear. Nobody will be cooperative until the mystery is definativley dealt with.

Survived a week in lockdown without being ill more than my normal amount so every time I thought I finally had it id take a pill and it would be ok. Turns out I just spent a week reading comics and 80s modules. Now to get my previous momentum that I had after 2 years of being a slothmog back as I took to being a bum way too quickly like an old skin. Been gardening and watching baby frogs lots. Stay well readers or else.

55 A crashed titanic butterfly like creature with a gondala atatched has crashed and strange explorers from the land of dreams tried to visit the waking world and their magic has failed them leaving them colourful carnvalesque helpless fools. One might think they are costumed or made up as carnival clowns or mimes but they always look like this

65 A great moon rock with dim palid glow rests in a crater and a clan of idiotic boggles come out with bobbling heads and creepy gait. They seek some dark caves or swamp to live in but can be curious about mortal world inhabitants and like to spy on them. The group have 4 guardian willow-the-whisps which are meaner in spirit than the boggles
66 A great moon rock lands and squads of selenite insect folk from the moon exit carrying their great queen and brainier thinkers with help of their giant caterpillars (use purple worm stats and eventually they become titanic moon moths who long to fly to the moon like all moths dream). The selenites beileve ground bound civilisations mean them harm so have sent out a colony force 
67 Strange metalic pod smoulders in a crater and inside machines can be heard. A great metal tripod piloted by three alien octopi one with a 7d6 laser rifle, one operates three 12m grappling tentacles and other drives. Three of these walkers come from one pod. They have come to conquer and go to unite with other units o the same continant destroying all in path and snacking on humans and animals on the way. Their own slave humaoids will deplete quickly (I use Tako and make them psionic). Later arivals will have other machines like gatherers a huge iron scorpion that collects prisoners into a cage on its back or a flyer which soars over the sky with a laser supporting ground machines. The will use poison gas canisters but have a limited amount and plant rapid growing alien weeds that will change the worlds atmosphere given time 
68 A strangesilver fortress has apeared in a smoking crater ocupied by weird almost skeletal once humans now they are strange psionic knights warped by aeons of generations on the astral plane. This is a first bastion in this world where they hope to gain resources by trade or war.

Prisoners will be thrown into the slime portal to be reborn as chaos mutants or possibly slime creatures
71 A grim iron tower has landed in an open area, swarms of bats and mist surround it and thorn bushes are rapidly growing over the pointy tower and grounds, forming a defencive wall. The tower is ruled by a space nosferatu who can also visit the ethereal plane at will to spy on and ambush people. The vampire sleeps in its steel coffin in the command room on the top floor and keeps several thralls as lackeys. Some of these thralls by the first night will scout for human victims that can be charmed into becoming peasants for this new strange being. The lord works to revive many skeletons stored in great ossuary in the tower from a former species of thralls all drained. The master besides wanting blood and power wants to fill the space towers tanks with blood that allow the tower to fly through the stars again if needed, currently they are empty each requiring a thousand adult human victims but any animal blood will do really 
72 Stone pyramid crashes and in the remains three alien mumies using a sun powerered relic resurect their ancient followers who have been stored as dust in jars for this voyage. The greatest mummy has terrible supernatural powers operates the relic and plans to establish an empire on this world.

73 A great mass of earh has been chrned up by a falling object revealing a collosal necropolis. The bodies begin to arise animated by the violet crystal meteor. They will enforce a perimter to protect the area and excavate trapped dead clawing to reach the surface. Eventually they will seel a human they can use as a vessel for the inteligence in the crystal, the spirit of a necromancer who escaped a barbarian wizard purge long ago

Inside the vast burried great machine a lich and his ghoul queen lover with their undead crew have returned from an aeons long journey seeking godhood. They gained the relic they needed but then had to return to the world to find living sacrifices to activate their collosal artifact. The ghoul queen and her spawn are hungry also and scout the region for prisoners
76  A strange baleful burning star falls and many dead arise near where it passed and head for where the star fell which is part of some old prophecey people only half remember
77 A hairy star flies over a settlement leaving a dreadful miasma of plague. As the first few mass graves are being filled the dead begin to arise causing chaos. It is said a monastic order warned of this evil star years ago

87 Crystal monolith with tentacles that lures in life with a strange sound and psionics then grasps them and turns them into crystal animals and abhumanoids
88 A mat of alien vegetation smothers everything then from from a seedpod then releases plant creatures. Normal plants begin to animate and become hostile. 
89 Imps rain down and the critteres menace people while invisible and help the wicked. Lesser devils and diabolic cults are increasingly seen until hunted and destroyed. A class of imp huntng fanatics arise and some fakes secretly taking advice from imps

93 Great demon hatched from stone egg and goes on a rampage. A divine being meets explorers telling them the monster must be slain by a certain means

99 A great statue of some evil god or demon or devil appears housing a hellgate with guardian troops and damned thrall cultists, Gods send visions to various heroes in the area
100  A ring of monoliths have fallen from the sky and sunk into the ground forming a ring. The stones have glowing sigils and used by cultists on their way can activate it to call down the cosmic cancer from beyond into out universe to uncreate it, curious distant gods watch and might encourage killing the cukltists swiftly
