I woke up this morning to an amazing die drop loot table from the awesome Kelvin Green. However, the way it was formatted meant that a lot of the dice I threw at it bounced off the table proper. So, with his blessing, I reformatted the table:
I’m a generous sort, and the whole “reroll dice that fall off the table if you are generous” meant I was rerolling a bunch of dice when I used the table as drawn up. So I resized it so the dice action takes up the whole page. But this means the instructions are missing… so I moved them to the back of the page. Not ideal, but after a few uses of the table you won’t be needing the instructions anymore anyways.
For the record, this photo of the chart in action is for a 7HD monster who’s treasure is:
- 90 gp of weapons (a dagger with an ornate golden hilt)
- 120 gp of small gems
- 90 gp in gold
- 600 sp
- 150 gp of foodstuffs (that’s going to be a pain in the ass to cash in on… a whole pile of Tu’ung fruit just on the verge of perfect ripeness)
- 180 ep in a coffer
- a single 750 gp emerald.
I would probably throw in a few funky dice when dealing with major bad guys. Throw in a d30 and a d24 when killing a dragon, for instance…
