1.0 Vegetation & Water Type Generation Table
In Campaign Law TM  there is a basic set of vegetation & water type generation tables for mapping terrain during game play.  This alternative table is for generating vegetation and water in areas with moderate climates. When determining an areas' vegetation or water character, make a preliminary roll to see if you need to consult the table below. If the result of a percentile roll ( 1D100 ) is 01-50, the vegetation/water type is the same as the last hex searched or mapped. This process can be used to determine the character of large areas, or of each hex that an adventuring party travels through. Should the roll be 51-100, roll percentiles again ( 1D100 ) and consult the chart below.
