OSE Encounter Activities - Bandits (d100)

Stand and Deliver! Here are one hundred lawless undertakings to embellish your Bandit encounters.

Bandits have been fairly frequent entries on Wilderness Encounter Tables since the very beginning (the typical Outdoor Survival board was practically crawling with Outlaws and ne’er do-wells) and they still seem to crop up regularly in later interpretations. There’s a world-building implication somewhere in there I’m sure.

I hope there are some DMs that get some mileage out of this list and that it leads to more interesting situations. As always, I love to hear about how these tables work out at your table!

Don’t forget the wealth of additional framing that can be added with Encounter Distance, Surprise, and by remembering to throw those crucial Reaction Roll dice! And always remember to check Morale so that they can flee and live to fight another day! Bandits can make for excellent recurring foils but can also be a useful faction to ally with in the Wilderness.

I believe our buddy the Basilisk is up next, which might be a little challenging!
