Miscellaneous Tables

One of the best things about Tablesmith is that it becomes much more complex and interesting when you start mixing tables.  You can easily cross-link hundreds if not thousands of tables to expand a simple table into a much more advanced and extensive table.  With that in mind, as I add more miscellaneous tables that will be reused across multiple tables I’ll add them to this page.

    Was pondering after reading up on Campaignmatery.com etc on the whole campaign thing and 9 steps for dramatic structure etc.

    Would it be possible to create “fixed” variable (for a lack of a better name) for a campaign and the based random tables around that.

    For example:
    A campaign includes three PC’s : Conan, Robin and Xena. They are fighting the evil Xur and his Kodan Armada and are trying to help princess Leia. [Eesh…cliche heaven]

    OK …so after storing basic names, classes and basic facts, DM can use modified tables to create results. eg. from Random Encounter
    [xxx] = Standard TS table
    [*xxx] = Stored Info

    “The party passes a [cemetary] on the way to [*Londinium]. [*Conan] the [*Warrior/Thief] notices hidden stairs leading down to a crypt. Enscribed into the stone arch is the symbol of [*Xur]. [*Xena] [fails] to notice a [poison needle] trap and [*Robin] is poisoned for [4 rounds x 1d3 dmg].”

    Advanced option/add-on:
    “[If one of the party members is a cleric]
    [Party Member Cleric] heals [poison party member] from poison.
    [Random party member] tries in vain to stops the effects of the poison

    Does any of this make sense? and do you think this might work?

      Rxmouton commented about writing data to a data file and being able to call that throughout various tables. That would work with this concept.
