Tomb Encounters (d20)

Description (more info)

A random encounter table that can be used in Dark Heresy, Inquisitor and the original Rogue Trader, with Ken Rolston's Orcs In Space RPG rules.

Note: While wandering in the tombs the characters can return to the hiveworld surface simply by retracing the same number of encounter rolls they made going in, so keep track, however, this cannot be done if their passage back is blocked by a hive quake (encounter 18), then the only way out is to find an exit to the surface (encounter 7).

1-2 on 1d6 chance per room, then roll 1D20 on the table below, to determine the exact nature of the encounter. Also roll 12 on 2d6 for a random Token, whenever anything else is encountered.
