November 2019, right around when I started this blog, there began a community sourced effort on the Audio Dungeon Discord server at creating d100 tables on a variety of topics: dungeon doors, wizard’s pockets, the frozen north, etc. Here’s one such effort on magic weapons.
I contributed a bit towards this work and was inspired by the creativity & imagination my fellow hobbyists showed for the task. Although, all these creative voices can create a bit of dissidence and it can become difficult to find a common theme even when collaborating on a common topic. That’s not bad, just noisy.
So I went it alone – I wanted a d100 table to deal with old school dungeon crawling “empty rooms”. When playing a traditional D&D game with players mapping based on GM descriptions I got tired describing a room’s dimensions & exits, only to then say “…and it’s empty”.
Empty? EMPTY! What are you talking about, EmPtY? There’s got to be something here a spec of dirt, some ratty old bones, something… So I set about creating a d100 table to deal explicitly with this topic of empty rooms. You can find that work here.

This blog has been banging out random tables since 2007, hundreds of them… literally. I mean 2020 alone had 141 posts (!) on this topic.
Great stuff Old Bean! Keep up the good work

Ha ha – WordPress is just another platform to learn. I’m still fumbling my way around here. Thanks for the encouragement, I’ll keep at it a bit.
Very cool, Aron—and I love that Trampier dice box! 😀
Right on Allan – you can find the template for that dice box in an earlier article here.
Hey Aron, love that list! Going to use it. Tom
