I love random tables. Duh. Thus these Random Thursday posts.
But today, I’m going to link to some of my favourite random tables from around the internet.
Random Randomness (d12)
- The Thrones of Telengard (from Swords & Dorkery) tables for what happens when you sit on a throne, pry gems from one, or read the magical runes therefrom – based on the awesome old-school computer dungeon crawl “Telengard”.
- Random Headgear (from B/X Blackrazor) full page PDF table for determining what awesome hat your character is wearing.
- Weird Treasure Containers (from Telecanter’s Receding Rules) 40 places where treasure can be found, but that you probably weren’t expecting.
- Alternate Spellbooks (from Malevolent & Bening) 21 alternate mnemonic tools for magic users instead of and in addition to the classic musty tome.
- Random Facial Hair (from Jeff’s Gameblog) A great complement to the Random Headgear earlier on this table.
- Hex Dressing (from The Society of Torch, Pole & Rope) 20 interesting additional things found in a wilderness hex.
- The Price of Magic (from Grognardia) Side effects of leveling up as a magic-user. Or it can be used when a wizard over-stretches his limits, magically.
- What’s in the Barrel? (from Swords & Dorkery) d30 things found in a barrel or other container. Very diablo-esque.
- The Infinity Rings (from Vulcan Stev) d30 minor magical rings that let you do something at will.
- Doc Aquatic’s Random Encounter Chart (from 4Chan /tg via Jeff’s Gameblog) 100 awesome aquatic encounters
- Unusual Island Characteristics (from RPG Blog II) 100 unusual things on the island – great for seafaring games or especially for the Agon RPG.
- Random Castle Shenanigans (from Jeff’s Gameblog) d20 shenanigans. I love shenanigans.
I know there are a lot more awesome tables out there. So PLEASE, link me to your favourites!
