Right, i'm REALLY new to this whole thing, coding and everythiong. But for my first proper project I've decided to make a Text Based RPG. I've got most of it done now, but am having problms working out how to make random damage from the enemies. At the moment, each Enemy does a set ammount of damage, and I want to be able to have aa set of two or three ammounts of dammage per enemy. here's the code for my battles:

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int healthpotion = 5;
int magicpotion = 5;
int firespell;
int lightningspell;
int strength = 5;
int health = 15;
int healthmax = 15;
int magicdmg = 2;
int magiclvl = 4;
int magicmax = 4;
int enhealth;
int enattack;
int choice;
void battlechoice();


void goblinbattle()
{
    cout << "Player VS Goblin\n\nWhat will you do?\n1: Attack           " << strength << " Dammage\n2: Magic            " << magicdmg << " Dammage\n3: Potions\n";
    cin >> choice;
    if ( choice == 1 )
    {
        enhealth = enhealth - strength;
        system("cls");
        cout << "You Attack the Goblin!\n\nThe Goblin now has: " << enhealth << "/20 life left.\n";
        cin.get();
        cin.ignore();
        system("cls");
        if ( enhealth <= 0 )
        {
