d30 Random Coinage Generator

Suggested Price $1.00

This d30 generator helps create new generic(ish) coins of different values based upon their metal content.

The idea behind this generator was to basically allow the GM to "hide" treasure within other treasure. Many, I'd dare say most, RPGs have some basic form of coinage and after a while tossing the party a few hundred or so loose coins of simple gold, silver, and copper becomes second nature. With this set of d30 tables the GM can throw together some coins that look like gold, silver, & copper but have different values.

I figure this is a good idea for parties raiding old tombs and whatnot. The names for the metal allows were mostly taken from real world coin alloys, although some were given generic fantasy names. Three particular alloys also share the same name, which isn't confusing at all......[insert evil GM laugh here]....

This generator does not create any designs/graphics/depictions of the coin faces, just their size, shape, and composition. There is an embedded link to a blog that has a d30 table for creating the coin faces, in case that is also desired.

This table exists just to add a little color to the game and to show a bit of love for the venerable d30.

In a pinch you could substitute the d30 rolls with other dice.You could use a d3 in conjunction with a d10 to get the specific result, and use this combination twice. This kind of goes against the idea of using d30 tables, but there you go. I'd suggest picking up a d30 from the likes of Crystal Caste.

If you find this interesting, you might want to check out the Order of the d30 G+ community, where you can find a lot more support for this one die. Free/PWYW d30 tables come out once a month. If you want to recieve these tables more frequently, along with other RPG aids, check out the Frugal GM's Patreon campaign.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
