    5E Random Monster Tables

    Edit: Now includes Volo's Guide to Monsters, and Tome of Beasts (if you want to use either)...

    This is a set of tables to generate a random monster from ALL CR LEVELS!

    I built this because I wanted to save time looking up monsters and rolling a (d)whatever to determine a random CR monster. This is because on my d200 CRIT/FUMBLE tables I have entries that call for the appearance of random monsters equal to CR of the party level. This way if someone rolls such, BAM I have a table for that.

    It can also be used for any situation where someone wants a random CR monster at the ready.

    Note: These are links that pull directly from the Monster Manual, Volo's Guide to Monsters, Tome of Beasts, and/or Fifth Edition Foes. If you do not own those, these tables will still work for you using the SRD Bestiary (included with Fantasy Grounds).

    To be clear, there are nine (9) versions:

    SRD Bestiary Only
    Monster Manual Only
    Monster Manual and Volo's Guide to Monsters
    Monster Manual and Tome of Beasts
    Monster Manual, Volo's Guide to Monsters, and Tome of Beasts
    Monster Manual and Fith Edition Foes
    Monster Manual, Volo's Guide to Monsters, and Fifth Edition Foes
    Monster Manual, Tome of Beats, and Fifth Edition Foes
    Monster Manual, Volo's Guide to Monsters, Tome of Beats, and Fifth Edition Foes


    Available at the DMs Guild - CLICK HERE!

    Also, note that some of the links are blank (NO TITLES for CR 1-17) so that if you want to share the table with your players, you can have them roll and be responsible for choosing their own demise (or help as the case may be). This way they can generate the link, but since players do not have access to the Monster Source material, they will not know what the monster is until the DM tells them.

    Please let me know if you find fault with either content or functionality. I will endeavor to repair immediately.

    Enjoy my peeps!

    Seriously good work! - Stickied.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/
