120 D100 Random Tables for Fantasy Tabletop Role-Playing Games

Cut down game master prep time with random tables. Don't waste time prepping what your players will never see. Use these tables to fill in details on the fly.

In this book, you will find 1000 book titles, critical success and fail flavor tables, 600 random items in dungeon rooms, encounters, odd jobs, rumors, food, more than 3000 items and things, more than 1000 names, 500 town names, NPC descriptions, dungeon health side effects, fortunes, insults, mutations, and more.

Many of these tables first appeared in the following books. However, all the tables are re-edited, reorganized, and improved (some with more than 50% new items). Plus a number of new tables are included.

The Critical Success Melee table is still missing.

Just bought this from Bundle of Holdings and also missing the Critical Success Melee table.

Or are customers like me 'assuming' there should be such a table since the Spells have a separate Success table?

The Table of Contents in the preview does not show a Critical Success Melee table. But the author in Aug/Sep 2021 said it should be in there, and he's not sure why it isn't. Another buyer makes it sound like it was there, then disappeared. I presume the author either forgot about it, or can't fix it.

It would be nice if the Full-size Preview includes samples of different tables rather than just repeated versions of the Book Titles tables. I was looking for the preview to show me what random information I might get from different tables to inform my purchase decision.

I’m interested in purchasing a print edition, but only if someone can verify it includes the sections missing in the PDF mentioned by others.

Hello. I just purchased this and my PDF is missing the Critical Success for Melee table.

Thanks for this! There is something that probably needs some editing though. The items on the 100. row of the tables are not properly justified. Can this be fixed?

No, it shouldn't be missing. I don't know why that would happen.

I checked the file and the pages were this there. However, I did just update the file with internal links, could you check again?

I can't find any pages with "critical success for melee attacks". I have the version with links, downloaded today.

Got the new linked document. Links are good. Bookmarks would also elevate the product to the next level! And the document security (password protected by owner) still doesn't provide the permissions to add them myself. Also of note: like Pontus E, I am not seeing the Crit success for melee attacks

I unfortunately, forgot to ever check the notifications on my dmsguild. looks like the crit successes are still not there

No hyperlinks and locked so that I can't add my own?! Seriously. This is a reference PDF. Hyperlinks are essential! I paid $15 dollars for this. Hope there is some resolution or I'm going to have to give a 1-star review and I haven't even got to the content.

I'll add them. The file shouldn't be locked though. Not sure it would be.

It was password protected. I eventually found a linux command line utility that I could break it with and then add my own bookmarks.

I've added links and updated the file. I'm not sure why it would have been password protected.

That comes with Watermarked PDF, so people don't remove them too easily. Knowledge how to remove password protection is not strong between folk, so it works mostly.

It seems I can' t leave a review since I've just opened a publisher account; didn't realize that. But this is an awesome product and I did a video review of this if you want to see it in person at https://youtu.be/T9jkTPsfYXk

Maybe this is obviously stated somewhere, but I don't see it -- what's the difference between Premium Hardcover and a Standard Hardcover?

If I own this book, are there any benefits to own the other ones?
Customer avatar
Matthew D March 05, 2021 3:14 pm UTC

Honestly, probably not. If you want some new rules on the concept of hunting for books in Eberron, you could check out The Bookhounds of Eberron.

I own all the Books of Random Tables. Is there a reason I should get this?
Customer avatar
Matthew D March 05, 2021 3:08 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
If you own all the other ones, it really depends. Buying this would give you the tables improved, edited more thoroughly, and all in one PDF. Also, new tables are included that are not in the other books. Plus, you have the option of getting a hardback. On the other hand, if you are happy with the other books and you feel you have enough random tables. Then you probably shouldn't buy this one.

Random tables are like dice: no amount is ever enough!

A hardback, sadly, isn't an option because it takes physical space. PDFs are the only thing saving me from having to just give up and pitch a tent in the back yard, and let the books have the house.

A list of the tables that have been added to this book might make it easier to decide if I want this.

There are two new "Items in a Dungeon Room" tables, Gnome names, Halfling names, Items in a Ship's Hold, Items in a Barn, Professions (for NPCs), Blessings, and there should be at least two more that are new my memory is failing at the moment. Plus the Items in an Inn's Kitchen, Types of Maps, Woodland Animals, and several other tables were revamped by more than 50%.

Jean M March 09, 2021 4:28 pm UTC

Thanks! Yeah, I'll probably end up with it. Because you can never have enough random tables.

Thanks for the list. I already have the four, but I’ll have to have this one, too. Always need more tables.

Format
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.
