Who's in the Coach?

For WFRP road encounters you now have basic encounters, expanded with tables for Beasts, Villagers, Warriors and Travellers.

I'm adding coaches to these tables, as coaches and coaching inns are common in the Empire and Old World.

Coaches make a great place for a group of PCs and NPCs such as nobles, vampires and rich merchants will often be found within. The dangers of outlaws, beastmen, fallen trees and zealous toll collectors make for good challenges to your group too.

Two columns give those driving the coach and passengers or cargo. A postilion usually rides the lead horse of a team.
