D&D Random Encounters - Mountain

Encounters might be a meeting with a patrol of guards at an old shrine or a familiar looking for aid. It might be an ambush in the wilderness, a stand-off in the city or a monster in the Underdark.
Mountains encounters bring visions of snow-topped crags, mighty waterfalls, verdant valleys and cloud castles. They are the home of proud highland tribes, avian predators and mighty giants.
