It's happened to every DM: Some clever PC decides to cast teleport, and when he confidently drops his percentile dice on the table, up comes the dreaded "similar area" result.

Get ready to spring an appropriately nasty surprise on your players as they invade the lair of some particularly nasty creatures -- who aren't happy about being disturbed in their plotting.
