For this series of posts I will be using the free PDF of the
Lots and lots of encounters, all random, all the time. Not really of course as all the time would be tedious but these two pages contain a two tables of them. Both are examples that can be used but seem more like guidelines for making your own. Of course unless your using a world sold in a book you will probably want to and if your using a premade world they probably already have encounter tables so its alright. I approve of the small number of example tables instead of a lot of extensive ones. The Labyrinth has enough detail for a new DM to just use and the Wilderness has an interesting mix of high and low level encounters. The book could have spelled out a ton of different tables but that would just freeze a lot of games with those tables. By doing it this way at the least the DM will have to search out more tables on their own.
