Generic Encounter Tables
Encounters come in many different forms across Hyrule from the forces of evil to merchants.
Roll 1d6 First to determine your encounter type. You may roll the encounter die again and take the lower or higher result to represent increased or decreased danger.
- 1 Ambush! Hostile creatures attack the party
- 2 Enemy Camp. Hostile creatures are protecting something valuable
- 3 Obstacle. Something impedes movement from toll booths to avalanches.
- 4 Social. Journeymen and other wanderers.
- 5 Puzzle. Treasure is ripe for the taking for clever adventurers.
- 6 Fortune. Something good for the party with no strings attached!
Ambushes are designed to be encounters that challenge a player depending on the level of play the party is at. Players generally increase their tier each time they get an ASI.
Tier 1 Ambushes
- 1 Drop Slimes. Two Gel or Two of the Small Chuchu Variant per party member drop from above, emerge from the ground, or otherwise pop out of nowhere!
- 2 Keese Hunger. One Keese per party member fly out from a nearby cave or swoop down from the night sky to feed on the party.
- 3 Bokoblin Blind. One Bokoblin per two party members (minimum 1) fire their slingshots from the cover of a 10ft. by 10ft. shack designed to blend into nature. This cover is 30ft. away with slits that provide three-quarters cover. The back entrance is open, but only two bokoblins can fire from the slits in the shack, so additional bokoblins will guard the entrance, possibly having a key on them to open the shack. The Bokoblins have advantage to their stealth rolls while within the blind.
- 4 Bokoblin's using their Heads. 1 Bokoblin wil,from elevation, roll 1 Stahlhead per party member, giving the Stahlheads 60ft of movement on the first round of combat.
- 5 Bokoblin Captain. A tough variant Bokoblin attacks the party with a company of one bokoblin per party member and one additional bokoblin. All remaining Bokoblin will retreat if the tough bokoblin is unable to hurt the party by either missing four consecutive attacks, receiving a status that prevents it from attacking, or is slain.
- 6 Slime Rancher. One Chameleon Lizalfos attacks in addition to one plain Chuchu or Zol per party member. On even rounds of combat, another Plain Chuchu or Zol comes as a reinforcement until the Lizalfos is slain
- 7 Stahl Emergence. A gang of Stahl creatures claws their way up from the ground. A Big Stahlfose and one Stalfos per party member emerge. When a Stahl is slain, a Stahlhead reinforcement will arive at the start of the next turn unless 13 HP worth of damage is done to a Stahl as a called shot.
- 8 Stoned. Two Stone Octorocks per party member attack from popping out of the ground.
- 9 Chameleon Strike. One Chameleon Lizalfos per two party members leaps from their camouflage. Additional Chameleon Lizalfos equal to the number of Chameleon Lizalfos that leap at the party attack from range.
- 10 Stahl Riders. Reroll if the average level of the party is less than three. A minimum of four Stalfos each riding a Stalhorse accompany a Stalfos Knight mounted on a Stahlhorse. The Stalfos Knight benefits from the Mounted Warrior Feat. When a Stalfos or Stalfos Knight uses Leaping Dodge while mounted, their mount may move 10ft. as well. If any monster in this encounter is slain, a Stalhead enters the battle on the same space the Stal was slain unless the enemy received 13 damage to the head via a called shot.
- 1. Bokoblin Camp. An open fire, some shelter perhaps, a tower for a posted watch, but a glaringly obvious treasure chest is easy to spot.
- 2. Keese Cave. The glint of treasure has made this spot a place for the keese to know where te food comes to them.

- 6. Moblin Fort. A wooden structure with multiple wooden platforms, bokoblin minions, explosive barrels, archer towers, and at least a treasure chest.

- 8. Molgera Lair. A wide territory where the Molgera prowls. Remains of old villages may have some valuables.
- 9. Gohma Nest. Perhaps there are only larvae, or a more powerful Gohma about. These areas are usually abandoned structures Gohma overruns
- 10. Lynel Lair. The hunting territory of a fierce beast. Its magical arrows are often found here as well as other terrible instruments of death not currently in the hands of a Lynel.
- 1. Toll Booth. An official local power requires payment for the party to pass through this section of wilderness. The party may optionally reroute, adding two additional encounters.
- 2. Debris. Something falls to block the party. They must remove the debris or climb over or reroute for two additional encounters.
- 3. Storm. Rain or Snow kicks up. Chance for high winds and lightning.
- 4. Ambush Ahead. Roll an ambush encounter. The party knows that this ambush lies ahead if they do not reroute their adventure, adding two encounters.

1. Five hylian commoners leading 1d4 wolves. The commoners mean no harm.
2. Golden cucco that mistakes you for the person(s) that stole one of its eggs and attacks. It can be calmed down with a successful DC 15 Wisdom (Animal Handling) check. If the check succeeds, a DC 17 Wisdom (Animal Handling) check may be attempted to get the cucco to follow the party and defend them.

The moblins initially wanted to target a nearby town but got discouraged upon seeing an army guarding it and are on their way home. They attack upon seeing the party, but they are only attacking them for resources, because their tribe is going hungry. They try to steal the characters' food, unused weapons, rupees, or other valuables and then run away.
1. Five Anouki telling stories around a campfire.
2. "Abandoned" igloo. Whoever enters gets attacked by three lizalfos.
