Strange and Interesting Herbs Table

Yesterday I posted my hack of Zak’s Wavecrawl kit- the Forestcrawl Kit, which will be included in my new hack of Vornheim.

As I’m going through the Vornheim book, ponder my own ideas, and other sites that have tables or ideas I want hack, I decided a table dealing with random weird and fucked up herbs would be a good idea.

There have been games in the past where a player wanted to pick herbs for medicinal uses..  Or to make poison and I didn’t have anything ready for that, so I just made up shit and hand waved it away…  Well here is a handy chart that will be in the Vornhack.

Just roll a d20 and either take it straight across or roll it 5 different times for unique weird shizzy.

I gotta thank Jez at Giblet Blizzard for the idea about taste.. His Toad Licking was awesome for that.
