D&D Miniatures
Dragoneye Random Encounter
Table, Dungeon Level 3

by Dale Donovan

Here's a random encounter table for a 3rd-level dungeon. All the creatures on the table are from the Dragoneye D&D Miniatures set. Most are commons, plus a few uncommons for variety. The table requires only three or four of each listed common and only one of each listed uncommon, so it's easy to get the miniatures you need. You may already have them, in fact. If you don't, then substitute similar figures that you do own.

Use this table to generate the less important encounters in a dungeon or similar area or as a list of possible encounters with ELs at or near three. You can roll randomly or choose one that suits your fancy whenever you need such an encounter.
