New Characters Deep in a MegaDungeon

N

Did your character just die deep in the megadungeon? No problem! Roll on the following table to determine how the party finds your next character. In all cases, the next sentence is, “And, I’ve no idea where I am and how I got here.”

Roll 3d12 (one for each column) How you got lost… …what you are doing when you are found… …and what condition you are in.
1 I fell down a chute and now I’m… …surrounded by monsters… …naked, starving, and dehydrated.
2 Went down the wrong tunnel scouting ahead and now I’m… …in a cage made of bones… …naked, gagged, and tied to a pole.
3 Went through a one-way door and now I’m… …at the bottom of an inescapable pit trap… …naked and afraid, with but a torch burning low.
4 Was teleported by some demon and now I’m… …hunting small creatures for food… …well-equipped, but, exhausted and running out of luck (roll 1d4 per hit die for current hit points).
5 A spinning wall split me from my previous crew and now I’m… …trapped in a spider’s web… …with just my weapons and armor, with a head-pounding hangover.
6 A pit opened up and swallowed me, and now I’m… …hallucinating on psychadelic mushrooms… …with just whatever I was wearing and what’s in my backpack, but otherwise fine.
7 The rest of the party was killed and the map was lost, and now I’m… …in the belly of a monster just slain… … with just arms and armor, with no food or water, but a full belly after resorting to eating some monster and drinking its blood.
8 I was hit by a Fear spell and ran away down random paths and now I’m… …hanging upside down in a snare trap… …with useless crap I’ve been collecting, but running low on food and water.
9 Camped out in the dungeon and when I woke, everyone was gone. I hadn’t been paying attention to where we were going and now I’m… …passed out drunk… …sick with chills and fever, with a full loadout.
10 Stepped through a door and the other side was some unknown part of the dungeon. My party was smart enough not to follow and now I’m… …fortifying a hideout… …without my arms and armor, and only two pieces of gear [name them], down to half my hit points.
11 My old party abandoned me while I was shitting and now I’m… …fleeing something… …healthy, but ill-equipped for the current predicament.
12 Daring solo explorer who just took a few wrong turns and now I’m… …feeling my way through the dark, with no light source… …in good health and with full loadout.

It's pronounced P-aff -- the first 'f' is silent. I live in Louisville. I like games and reading about games. I hope to write about gaming stuff here.
