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.

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

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?

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?

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%.

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.

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.
