D4 Random Swamp Encounters

  1. A zombie attacks! It is a massive creature, with arms as big as tree trunks. It will attack with both arms.

  2. A trio of lizardfolk - Three lizardfolk are hunting near lake. They are hostile to the players.

  3. You come across a small clearing in the swamp. In the clearing, there is a small altar made of stone with a statue of a man on top of it. The statue is that of an old man with a long beard and a staff in his hand. In front of the statue, there is a small fire burning with smoke rising into the air. There is an old book on top of the altar. If you approach the altar, a wizened old man will pop out of thin air and attack you with a magic staff that will turn you into a frog if it hits you!

  4. A group of 1d4+2 lizardfolk are in a cave nearby. They are mourning their recent loss.

Greetings. I'm Paul Bellow, a LitRPG author, decades-long gamer (tabletop and cRPG), an RPG game developer, and publisher of several online communities. In other words, an old school webmaster. (Now there's a random encounter for you!)

I created this site with Free DND Random Encounters. I also run LitRPG Adventures. The site has dozens of AI-powered RPG generators and a growing library of RPG content (several encounter tables of various difficulty for 5e and other tabletop RPG). The content is generated by GPT-3 AI from OpenAI.

Thanks for checking out this free RPG encounter tool. I hope you find it useful! Enjoy your stay and reach out on Twitter or Discord if you want to make contact. First encounter is not always easy, but I love talking to people on social media about Dungeons & Dragons from Wizards of the Coast.



Fantasy RPG Print Book

I have a seperate collection of unique RPG random tables (and more) for fantasy tabletop RPG campaigns available now at Amazon as an ebook or softcover... It has encounter tables and a whole lot more.

This collection of RPG random tables for fantasy tabletop RPG campaigns contains Items Found in a Tavern Basement, Items found in a wizard’s tower, Random non-combat Forest Encounter Table, 100 Fantasy Drinks, 20 NPC Tavern Patrons, and all sorts of names, including dungeon and city names... As with the content above, you can change the challenge rating as necessary.

Create a deadly environment or use the site to just get ideas that you can spin positive or negative. This site is just meant to foster ideas that a creative DM can mold into role-playing magic. Whether it's a monster or treasure, the materials on this site with have you dancing in joy as your put your hands in the air.

Feel free to change any portions of the content to fit your needs. You can change one race to another race, for example. Or have a character of one race meeting another type of character instead of what the AI and I came up with for the encounter on this site. At the end of the day, I just want you to have fun...

Get this Random Tables Book at Amazon and help support me creating more FREE RPG tools. Thanks!

D&D Random Generators:

Here's a list of each DND 5e+ random encounter generator on their own pages for your convenience.


FREE RPG tools:

Here's some of the other free tools I've built with GPT-3 from OpenAI if you want something more than a simple encounter table.

Magic Items Maker

My Magic Items Maker creates all sorts of magic items. This is an example of what the tools at LitRPG Adventures can do. There's actually two different magic items generator at LitRPG Adventures for those who want more control over the difficulty of the encounter.

Backstory Generator

I've also built a Backstory Generator powered by GPT-3 from OpenAI. You can create all sorts of backstories for characters (wizards to rogues to warriors), NPCs, and more.

NPC Generator AI

My NPC Generator AI website generates NPC backstories at the touch of a button. You get more control as a member of LitRPG Adventures. And the rules are simple.

More Random Encounters

My random encounter generator is just one of many tools I've built at LitRPG Adventures over the last couple years. There's over two dozen generators online that can save you a bunch of time. From magic items to monsters and creatures to locations to governments, there's something for everyone. You can adjust the challenge rating as necessary for each encounter your PCs will run into. As a DM, your rule is law, so know that each encounter on the list is just an idea for you to use and change as necessary - like any other random encounter generator.

Using AI for Random RPG Content

Some people have been against using AI to generate random encounter generator tables and other RPG content, but I think that it's a useful tool. At this stage, human input is still very much needed. The AI available today helps, but it still needs a human to "drive" if you want to achieve the best content without difficulty.

At LitRPG Adventures, you get the best of both worlds - AI generated content lovingly edited by humans. Stop by LitRPG Adventures today and check out all the great RPG content you can generate or browse our library of over 26,000 already generated items, places, people, creatures, and more! Unofficial fan content permitted? Yes. This is all unofficial fan content generated by an AI. More than a simple random encounter generator, it outputs all sorts of great content.
