An Incomplete Catalog of Random Tables for Future Reference

Rummaging through my RPG collection looking for random tables to make sure I’ve bookmarked for later reproduction (and adding to my GM binder). I have mine already marked.

Kevin Crawford packs his RPG supplements with numerous random tables. Some are in the moment tables and others are very much “I need a 5 minute break to whip something up.”

What I have marked for copy/printing:

And sitting beside the binder will be:

  • Jason Sholtis‘s Dungeon Dozen - a book of off the wall, outrageous ideas and crazy situations.
  • Wizard of the Coast’s Dungeon Master Guide (for 5E) - lots of tables, but no index of what all of those tables are.

Others that are on the short list to review are:

  • Burning Wheel Headquarter‘s Torchbearer - lots of tables for “when you roll into town” and “when you head out for adventure”
  • TSR’s Birthright - if memory serves, there are a few tables for domain specific events.
  • Usherwood Publishing’s OSRIC SRD - a reverse engineering of the 1st Edition DMG (with charts)
  • Frog God Games‘s Tome of Adventure Design - a massive set of tables for generating interesting adventures, monsters, situations, traps, books, etc.
