What Happens at Fort Kick Ass While You're Away?

The PC's have finally managed to establish a wilderness stronghold or solid base of operations, but what happens when they leave it to seek out adventure in foreign climes? Roll 1d8, 1d6, and 1d4 to find out...

Check the d8 first to determine the type of Event and which chart to use for the d4 and d6 Results.

Assume that the event happens towards the midpoint of the PC's time away, unless otherwise noted (or some other time makes for a more interesting result). You can use encounter tables from nearby areas to randomly determine monster types if you'd like.

These charts (like most generators of this nature) require a bit of interpretation on the behalf of the GM. Besieged by Friendly Monsters could mean that former monstrous allies turn against the Stronghold and it's environs with an actual siege. Alternatively it could be a metaphorical siege, allies in need are currently draining stronghold resources because of problems in their territory.

If you find them too plain (or unuseful for your campaign), these should be easy expand and customize.

Enjoy.
