Secret Santicore 2013...my submission...

Secret Santicore has been going on for a few years in the OSR blogosphere, and last year was my first time participating. In case you missed it, goes like this: You submit a Secret Santicore request, and you get assigned someone else's request. Make it and wait excitedly! (Official 2013 FAQ link).

Well Volume 1 is out and it's AWESOME! My assignment was as follows: 

A D20 table of creep stuff you could find in an abandoned space station.
