What are your processes to make up an encounter on the fly?

CommentWhat are your personal processes for when you find you need to make up an encounter on the fly?I usually throw stuff at the players with CR in mind – if it’s something on the fly that’s just meant to be a quick fight, I use creatures with a CR at about half or less of the party’s level, no more than 3 – 5 critters. That usually seems to work. For a bigger monster, I just keep the CR at or less than the party’s level. from discussion D&D AMA with Mike Mearls and Chris Lindsay 1/15.
