381102 Allopurinol For Sale, Too often, a "Random Encounter" is seen as a combat encounter, one where a wandering monster stumbles upon your party and proceeds to eat your NPC companions before you even make it to the doors of the dungeon.

Random encounters can be so much more than that. 1000mg Allopurinol, I'd like to look at two types of random encounters, beginning with the aforementioned combat encounter.

Combat Encounters


I find myself completely avoiding random combat encounters when running 4e, 150mg Allopurinol. Combat takes far too long within the system to waste a half hour (or more) on a fight with a wandering owlbear.

d-d-encounters-01However, in other editions, including D&D Next, random combat encounters are much more viable, as you can start and finish a combat in about 15 minutes (based on your level and the power of a monster), Allopurinol For Sale. 750mg Allopurinol, The problem with random encounters is the... well... randomness of it, 200mg Allopurinol. You're walking down a well beaten path when... Allopurinol For Sale, wait for it... Allopurinol ebay, (rolls dice, consults table) you are set upon by a Slaad. Your players know you've just rolled them up an encounter that has no bearing on the story, Allopurinol overseas. Things that have no bearing on the story should be nixed, 20mg Allopurinol, right out.

However, if, 40mg Allopurinol, before the game begins, Allopurinol australia, you randomly roll on some tables and determine that the third night out, they run across a bugbear. Now you have a few moments to come up with why this bugbear is out here in the forest before your players even sit down at the table, Allopurinol For Sale. Perhaps there's a goblin camp nearby, Allopurinol usa, and this bugbear was on patrol. 100mg Allopurinol, Perhaps he was separated from his raiding party.

Combat encounters should be meaningful. Placing a random monster in the forest should tell the players that this forest is teeming with enemies, 30mg Allopurinol, and that they should be careful. Allopurinol For Sale, It should tell them that they're closer to their destination, as they run into more and more frequent patrols of kobolds. 250mg Allopurinol, Bottom line. Roll up those random encounters beforehand.

Social Encounters


ally with house thannIn non-combat encounters, 10mg Allopurinol, players may encounter NPCS, Allopurinol us, events or other situations that may or may not be critical to the adventure at hand. Unlike combat, I don't mind throwing tons of these at the players, Allopurinol uk, even when unimportant to the plot. Random social encounters can breathe life into the setting, Allopurinol For Sale. Allopurinol canada, DMG 42 has some really fantastic random encounters, shown here. I've used a few myself, Allopurinol india, and they're excellent. Allopurinol japan, Just like combat encounters,  social encounters, even if simply describing a couple of merchants walking by and talking, Allopurinol coupon, or seeing a rogue cutting purses, 50mg Allopurinol, should have a point. They may not be integral to the plot, but they should never feel random and useless, 500mg Allopurinol. Allopurinol For Sale, That rogue you see. He'll turn up later to cut your purse if you don't stop him now. Allopurinol craiglist, Those merchants were talking about the upcoming mid-summer festival, which happens to coincide with your big plot point coming up. All random encounters can tie into your plot, Allopurinol mexico, or create new subplots. Allopurinol paypal, I advise rolling these up beforehand as well, as it gives you time to place them firmly within your setting and story, and avoid freezing up, trying to come up with something on the fly. There are some great random tables found in the latest D&D adventure, Murder in Baldur's Gate, Allopurinol For Sale. I suggest picking it up, if for nothing else than being a great resource for city design and city building.

Random encounters don't have to be random. They can provide fantastic opportunities for both the DM and players to roleplay and interact in new and dynamic ways, and provide subtle ways of furthering the plot. As Bridget and I play a little 4e in Baldur's Gate, I'll let you know how our random encounters go.

    The best uses of random encounters vary depending on whether they occur in a Dungeon or in the Wilderness. In a Dungeon, random encounters should almost never be monsters that are “spawned” in the dungeon, but rather be from a finite pool of entities that are actually milling about their habitat to simulate a living dungeon. In the Wilderness, they serve to create an emergent narrative to a campaign that involves exploration while also showing that the world is a real place full of real dangers and the heroes are not special little snowflakes. If you’re on dinosaur island and a dinosaur shows up, it’s because it lives there, not because it’s a challenger for you to beat. Maybe you should run?

    I think that if framed and used well, these encounters enhance story. For example, my players went into a city of Genasi that were fiercely racist against any non-Genasi. I played this up with random social encounters that did not necessarily drive plot, but still displayed what type of people the party was dealing with.

    Also, as long as your NPCs are not paper-thin, a random fight does not have to be random either. I wrote a post on how defining what your NPC did before he was a stat block for the party to fight can enhance roleplay and give the players a better idea of what the big bad might be up to, thus furthering plot with a seemingly random encounter.
