Rural encounters table.

When the group travel in the countryside you can roll on this table to bring life to the farms or villages they pass through.

To dress a rural scene roll a d20 to read a row of entries or roll four d20 to mix the results. 

There is 1 chance on a d6 that something suspicious is going on. Like people hiding some criminal, unmoral, shameful or forbidden activities. If so, there is also 1 chance on a d6 that it involve something supernatural.
