d100 Petty Lairs

I found this which looks like hard work

Plus 4 more bits of Xor Lore coming to you

These are lairs you might find a hike from the village or to the unused side of the lake or on travels. They should be safe for beginning level 1-4th level adventurers and not horrible or otherworldly. Well not much.

I assume small caves mostly or use this table for a change

  1. Index all of your tables was surprisingly hard work, but only because there are just so many tables, a lot more than one would think. I'm not even going to suggest making a PDF out of all of them, because THAT would be a ton of work.


I love and welcome feedback but not spambots
Good feedback and suggestions inspire me to write more
