Gristlegrim Mini-Dungeon : Khosht

Random Monsters Tables

When told to roll for a random monster, roll 1d6 and check the charts below. You will never encounter the same monster twice. If you roll the same monster, a second time, consult chart 2, a third time consult chart 3. If you roll the same number more than 3 times in the course of an adventure for random monsters, then roll again until you get a number you can use. All monsters fight to the death and have treasure only if it says they do.
