Wandering Monster Generator

Generate random monsters found while wandering the wilderness. Levels and difficulties will be random, but will median towards CR 2. Feel free to reroll (refresh) if the CR doesn't match the party, but wilderness hazards work best when it's a mix of creatures that are weaker/stronger than the PCs. Instead, try tuning the amount of monsters encountered so that the sum CR more closely matches the party (minimum 1). This also doesn't mean the monster will be hostile or notice the PCs.
