OSE Encounter Activities - Wolf

Decided to fill in some of the glaring gaps highlighted by yesterday’s entry. I didn’t even have some of the animals complete before tackling their Lycanthropic counterparts!

Now for Wolves. With only two sub-entries I struggled a bit with how to make this one work. Two d30 Tables didn’t seem like enough: maybe I could add another table for pelage/coat colors? Prey items? Some handy dandy “Wolf Vocalizations” for foreshadowing? In the end I decided to just go whole hog.

So, for this single Monster Entry, you get two d100 Tables. One for Dire Wolves, and another for their Normal cousins. I decided both deserved their due, as Wolves are a common encounter, and Dire Wolves differ just enough in habit and character to merit their own entries. The Dire Wolf seems to be serving as stand-ins for the Worg given their Goblin associations, and for a treat, I’ll occasionally go ahead and grant them surprisingly coherent and eloquent speech (think of Gmork from the Never-Ending Story).

Without further ado, here are the tables, lovingly tendered for your kind perusal 😊.
