D&D Miniatures
Deathknell Random Encounters
By Dale Donovan

Here's a random encounter table for a 7th-level dungeon. All the creatures on the table are from the Deathknell set. All the figures are commons or uncommons. If you don't have the miniatures listed here, substitute any similar figures that you do own. Use this table to generate the less important encounters in a dungeon or similar area or as a menu of encounters with ELs at or near 7th level. Feel free to alter the alignments of the Good creatures to neutral or evil if you wish.
