Dungeons and Dragons Random Encounters: Level 18
For an explanation and introduction to Random Encounters, go to Why would anyone make a giant chart of Random Encounters?
Roll once for each adventurer in your party. Whenever you roll a Brute, or a Soldier, add two of that creature and roll one less time total. If the last creature you roll is a brute, or a soldier, your players will have to suck it up. There will be more experience for them anyway. Whenever Minions are rolled, add the number of minions shown to the encounter and count them as one creature for the purposes of generating an encounter. Whenever an Elite creature is rolled, count it as two separate creatures for the purpose of generating an encounter. When a Solo creature is a, stop rolling, since a solo monster by itself is a good challenge for characters of that level. If you’ve already rolled up three creatures before the solo joined the party, you may want to indicate to your players that now would be a good time to run…
