A rare healing herb grows on a rocky pillar at the base of this stream, but the way down is sure to be a test…

Though the scenery looks colorful and inviting, the mere fact that this is a battle map demands that something nasty be waiting. Perhaps it is a tribe who greatly values the herb and will protect it with their lives, or a towering elemental, or a rival adventuring party?

Whatever it is that your players end up fighting, they must also take care traversing the ledges-of-undefined-height, slippery mud, and deep water. It would surely be embarrassing to fall off a ledge, be knocked out, and drown in the midst of a fight…

Let us know what your encounter ideas are in the comments. I’m always happy to hear them!
