An avatar of Sobek appears as an enormous crocodile, though it can also take on the form of a humanoid giant with a crocodile head too, losing its swim ability, but gaining the use of its hands. In either case, it is always hungry, either for food or a mate, taking what it wants and woe be unto any who stand in its way!

Sobek Encounters
1. The party runs across a blond, beefy man with a strange accent who is trying to tame a crocodile or similar reptilian beast. Whether they intervene or not will be looked upon favorably by Sobek... or not.

2. 1d4 crocodiles emerge to attack the party. If the party counterattacks, then there is a 25% chance of a large or even giant crocodile (per Referee) being sent by Sobek to make things more interesting!

3. Individuals are encountered that have strange, little crocodile symbols stitched upon their clothing. They are actually Cultists of ‘I, Zod’, a heretical sect that worships Sobek as a Demon Lord of snappy dressing (literally).

4. A lone man with the traits of 1d4 of Sobek’s  #10-14 divine tests is spotted. He is either (roll 1d6): [1-3] a Sobek cleric, [4-5] one simply blessed by Sobek with such traits, or [6] a Sobek avatar polymorphed to look medium sized. In any case, the lone man also has a 50% chance of being in the process of either stalking live prey or a mate, most likely targeting one or more of the party (a base 75% chance)!
