A-to-Z d30: Swamp Encounters

Welcome to entry 19 in my A-to-Z blogging challenge,
wherein I attempt to do 26 d30 charts during the month of April.
Today... swamp encounters.

I know these encounter charts by terrain aren't as popular as some of the others I've been doing, but I really like these for a couple of reasons. When you think about it, they really provide you an overview of what should/shouldn't be common in an area. The way I look at it, the common and uncommon types should be the basis for your wandering monster charts in any given area (e.g., roll for 6 different commons types, and 2 uncommon types). Then use a few rare types and 1 very rare type as the centerpieces for adventures in the area. Then everything makes sense naturally. I truthfully believe this is why the founding fathers included frequency as part of the 1e MM listings.
