OSE Encounter Activities - Wraith

Clawing our way ever closer to one hundred entries, here is a d100 Table for the dreaded Wraith!

I believe this may be our first of the incorporeal Undead, and like the Wight, these are feared by Players for their experience-sucking draining touch. I often use these to fill the vengeful Ghost niche and have a marked tendency to tie them to a particular place or item out of habit. It can be fun to flex creativity on the spookier side of things sometimes.

Might be useful to add a little more flavor/set dressing for those of you brewing up something with Barrowmaze:

  1. These d100 lists are all so good. I want to run a game with no prep other than printing these out and let the story unfold based on random rolls...

    1. So glad that you like them and am grateful for the feedback! I'd be very interested to hear about how it goes if you end up taking up that challenge! It's always lovely to hear about how these things are used at other Tables :).

      I think it's theoretically possible if you're skilled at improvisation and enjoy being just as surprised as the Players :). I know part of the fun for me is the challenge of being forced to think creatively on my feet :).
