    Every living thing in the area loses all of their languages and instead speaks high latin. This includes all living things in the area such as plants, animals, players, etc. even if they cannot normally speak. If they cannot normally speak, they gain the ability to do so.

    Everything in the area is suddenly subjected to the reincarnation spell as cast by a level 20 druid.

    Creatures in the area lose their normal alignment and instead gain a colour wheel alignment that fits their personality. The field of this effect randomly grows and shrinks by varied distances.

    All of the water turns into A&W Cream Soda.

    Gravity reverses for about 400 feet vertically, then suddenly rights itself with 4x strength.

    There is a slight mist in the area that obscures all forms of vision. When the characters walk into the area, continue as though nothing happens as long as they push forwards. They never moved from the same location as soon as the fog enveloped them and if they take a step back, they find they were still on the every edge of the fog bank.

    As the characters step forward they find themselves at the edge of a chess board. They may choose which space they step onto, and thereafter must move as the piece which begins in that space.

    A player who begins a turn on the opponents first row may step off of the board. This game is not about winning, it is about getting to the other side.

    Captured players lose 1000gp per rank point of the piece they played, and all players gain 1000gp per rank point of pieces they capture. If a player chooses to play the king he controls the non-player pieces. Otherwise, the nearest PC orders it to move.

    Captured players may not offer advice, but players who have stepped off may. No one may leave until all have crossed or have been captured.

    Rank:
    1: pawn
    4: knight
    6: bishop
    8: rook/castle
    12: queen
    16: king

    An old and feeble orc tries to pick a fight.

    Two talking ravens fly from perch to perch discussing how soon the characters will die. They drop hints about what lies ahead, but only as part of their conversation. If directly addressed they will be rude, saying they werent talking to the PCs.

    you see that gold starts growing as some sort of flat platforms and spikes of diamonds randomly and suddenly grow from the gold and what gets killed by the growing gold or diamond can turn in opals that then homes and tries to kill and replace life by more opal.
    Also each segment of diamond have random odds of turning into gold.
    And the whole thing gets faster and faster.
    You surely hope you have enough voidstone for destroying that.
    (if only you did not carry all that gold you would be safer)

    The party sequentially meets three people in distress.
    The first is an elderly man with a cranky disposition whose wagon has mired and whose oxen cant move it without help.

    The second is a young woman locked in a tower guarded by an ogre. Make it a level-appropriate giant.

    The third is a prostitute or beggar.

    After all three encounters the characters find themseves in a hall of judgement on trial for the three encounters. The witnesses are the three people encountered and the judge is an avatar of the god of chivalry.

    A Good Beholder

    A bard was polymorphed into a beholder by a wizard who thought to use him as a meatshield, but the bard retained his half-elven psyche, and was thus unable to use the beholder abilities. Therefore the wizard abandoned him.

    The beholder-bard is hoping the party can fix him. After they stop trying to kill him, of course.

    It is not particularly bizarre: wizards not knowing how polymorph works is very common.

    Unless its Ringo thats all too common. Even the fifth one.

    The party encounters a massive ship in a desert crewed by naturally mumified sailors.

    The ship has a wake behind it in the sand, and appears to be under full sail, though the sails are shredded rags. If anyone tries to check, its moving about half an inch a day.

    The mummified crew reacts to repel boarders, but any who fall or get thrown from the ship sink into the sand never to be seen again.
