1d12 Random Mercenaries Encounters Table For Your Old School Sword & Sorcery Campaigns

Evin crossed the field with purpose & watched the two warriors just emerging from the tree line. They had not seen his position yet. The way they held their spears indicated Jackian spearmen but this meant that they were a long way from home. It could also mean they were desperate & very dangerous individuals.
They didn't see Ajax the half caste warrior until he had circled around them. Asking these men for directions to a city the giant of a man already knew the way too.
Everything seemed to go well with them even though they held their spears in the ready position but Evin had expected this.There wasn't a Jackian wizard nearby or their might have been considerable trouble. The wizards ate their victims especially warriors in order consume their souls & their vitality. But these men were looking for work & asked Ajax for any leads. These were indeed strange times when even the enemies of the Northmen were looking for work through their enemies.
Evin put compound bow down as soon as Ajax began the long trot back to his blood brother's position.

The paths of fortune & glory are littered with adventurers, sell swords, & mercenaries of all stripes. These beings travel along a path shod with violence, gore, & danger. Adventurers are always encountering those in their own trade. These adventurers are often mercenaries given over to the life of adventure, danger, & intrigue. It is the perfect breeding ground for professional contacts in a life style that affords true real friends.
