“stomach-analogue“?

I‘m glad I got the lure and hook back, especially since there are another dozen hook-analogues still in there from less savvy anglers that document the creature‘s ability to evade capture.

From the 1st stomach we were attacked by parasites who leapt for the mouth like so many suckered froggy lampreys. In the 2nd stomach, more like a gizzard really, among the rocks and gems and pulverised bone shards was an unexploded fragment granade! We could have been killed! At last in the 3rd sub-stomach we find the enamel bladder and its reservoir of liquid armor, a bone paste that the creature excretes to heal wounds and repair and build up its carapace.

Resubmitted from my contribution to the RPGGeek Random Tables:

Stomach contents of the gigantic shark

Roll once, unless the shark is exceptionally large, in which case roll until you get two different items.

1: severed hand of Jermin, court-mage of Krith, still wearing his ring of controlling sea creatures
2: a license plate (whatever that is), from the state of New Jersey (wherever that is)
3: the second-best armchair of the sultan of Mantoum, partially masticated
4: a mostly-complete suit of armor, inscribed with magical Noltic runes
5: three bottles of a rare vintage of elf-wine, still corked
6: a well-made crumhorn, previously belonging to the minstrel Ingegar of Yoren
7: a magnificent fur coat, made from the pelt of a dire weasel
8: a smaller shark, swallowed whole, but very dead
9: a medallion of Saint Glauglas, venerated by the pearl divers of Prauni
10: a sheepskin sack filled with coins; 50% chance that they are worthless forgeries
11: half of a pair of boots of the basilisk (the right boot)
12: the tusk of walrus, carved to depict the elemental city of Nydalith
13: a waterproof map-case, containing a detailed treasure map with the label “Zebulon’s Cove”
14: a sealed barrel of salted meat, divided into gnome-sized portions
15: whalebone peg-leg of Momoko the Red, which she’d very much like returned
16: a set of poor-quality blacksmith’s tools, but they’re better than nothing.

The party has finally reached the wealthy alchemist's inner sanctum. Unfortunately some other critter has got there first and ingested all the potions. Digging into the stomach contents, the party discovers 2d6 potion bottles that still seem to be in good order, sealed, etc. But, maybe... some aren't quite right...

Roll d% on each table to assemble the actual effects of the bottle.

Table 1 - Type
01-86: Potion
87-94: Oil
95-98: Philter
99-00: Elixir


Table 2 - Modifier
01-65: (None)
66-69: Animal
70-73: Fire
74-77: Greater
78-81: Hill Giant
82-85: Water
86-87: Fire Giant
88-89: Frost Giant
90-91: Gaseous
92-93: Mind
94-95: Stone Giant
96-97: Superior
98: Cloud Giant
99: Storm Giant
00: Supreme


Table 3 - Effect
01-20: Healing
21-33: Climbing
34-45: Strength
46-50: Slipperiness
51-54: Breath
55-58: Breathing
59-62: Friendship
63-66: Growth
67-70: Love
71-74: Poison
75-78: Resistance
79-80: Clairvoyance
81-82: Diminution
83-84: Etherealness
85-86: Form
87-88: Health
89-90: Heroism
91-92: Invulnerability
93-94: Reading
95: Flying
96: Invisibility
97: Longevity
98: Sharpness
99: Speed
00: Vitality


1d100 = (45) = 45 - 1d100 = (93) = 93 - 1d100 = (3) = 3
Potion of Mind Healing

1d100 = (6) = 6 - 1d100 = (37) = 37 - 1d100 = (64) = 64
Potion of Growth

1d100 = (62) = 62 - 1d100 = (12) = 12 - 1d100 = (80) = 80
Potion of Clairvoyance

1d100 = (85) = 85 - 1d100 = (58) = 58 - 1d100 = (100) = 100
Potion of Vitality

1d100 = (57) = 57 - 1d100 = (58) = 58 - 1d100 = (17) = 17
Potion of Healing

1d100 = (85) = 85 - 1d100 = (36) = 36 - 1d100 = (32) = 32
Potion of Climbing

1d100 = (41) = 41 - 1d100 = (51) = 51 - 1d100 = (100) = 100
Potion of Vitality

1d100 = (88) = 88 - 1d100 = (71) = 71 - 1d100 = (13) = 13
Oil of Fire Healing

1d100 = (54) = 54 - 1d100 = (25) = 25 - 1d100 = (60) = 60
Potion of Friendship

Well, most of 'em seem pretty normal. A couple could be something intriguing to figure out...

Ooo... I did this for alligators (three-headed and normal) for a Call of Cthulhu adventure I created.

My list was:

1) lead sinkers
2) two baseballs
3) one tennis ball
4) two turtles
5) one beer can, unopened
6) a dog
7) crab shells
8) 1d6 rocks
9) 1d6 sticks
10) 1d4 small living alligators that immediately attack
11) normal book
12) occult book

Like all good lists (and lies), most of it is based on reality...
