War of the Dragon Queen
Random Encounters

Here's a random encounter table for a 5th–level dungeon. All the creatures on the table are from the War of the Dragon Queen set, and all 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 list of encounters with ELs near or at 5th level, or use this as a list from which to choose an encounter whenever you need one.
