Die Drop Table, Dungeons & Dragons, Fantasy, House Rules, Kudos, Labyrinth Lord, OSR, Random Tables, RPG
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.
You can download my “Extended 10 Inch DJ Remix” of his table here.
You can get the beautiful originals (PDF and JPG) from Kelvin’s blog here.
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…
Reblogged this on Iho's Chronicles and commented:
Una tabella perfetta per la determinazione casuale dei tesori, con l’aggiunta di una grafica accattivante, dovevo condividere

Maybe these sort of things should be designed so they fit inside some sort of standard box size. ie. a typical biscuit tin or a small pizza box, maybe. That way they can be placed in the box when needed and then swapped out with a different one. All the dice stay in the box unless the thrower gets really violent…

They kind of are… most RPG boxed sets are slightly bigger than US letter sized, so you can just put them in the lid of a boxed set. I use the lid from my D&D5e starter box currently, but I have a couple dozen other boxes I can use of the same size.

This is really excellent stuff, both the original and the improvement! Next time, when in doubt about the treasure, I’ll definitely surprise my players and whip out this thing. Thanks!
I’m totally using this next game.
