Given the survival rate of your average OSR dungeon, sometimes players may want a little more motivation for why their characters have plunged into the darkness.
Here at the Daily OSR Fix we love random tables, and we love tools to get a game moving quickly (and slightly unpredictable), so what better than a table of random character motivations.
1: Search for loot
2: Obtain fame
3: Kill a particular monster in the dungeon
4: Find a person who went into the dungeon
5: Find a person that was abducted by monsters
6: Make the surface world safer
7: Scout out the dungeon and report back
8: Obtain a specific item
9: Unhealthy level of curiosity
10: Religious or cultural imperative
