30 Things Can Happen

WHAT WORKS: It's a book of random tables...and it gives me an excuse to use my d30. Hard to top that. Especially since the tables are set up to use d10s or d20s as well, maximizing utility.

WHAT DOESN'T WORK: $6 might sound like a tad much for 30 pages of random tables. Obviously, if you don't like random results, look elsewhere.

CONCLUSION: Creative Mountain Games knew this was going to get high marks from me, because I mention random tables *all the time*. Strong recommendation if you're into that sort of thing. Stay away if you don't.

Review of “30 Things Can Happen! A System-Free Sourcebook for Medieval Fantasy RPGs” by Mark Clover, Creative Mountain Games.

“30 Things Can Happen!” is a sourcebook from Creative Mountain Games, written by Mark Clover. This book gives the Game Master a rather large selection of interesting plot hooks and events, much like a wandering monster encounter chart. The “things” are broken down into reasonably managed tables for selection. There is no fluff here, Clover brings us straight to the tables.

The book is divided into three main sections, “While in a City”, While in the Country”, and “While Underground.” Each main section is divided into 10 tables, each with three subtables of ten “things” each. A die rolling mechanic involving d30's, d20's, d10's and d6's is given to make random selections, though I found the book's main utility to be in providing inspiration for adventure writing plot hooks, rather than as an in-game GM utility.

The book comes in at a well-laid-out 34 pages. The typeface is easy to read, and the tables are numbered well, for ease of use. The art is black-and-white stock images, including some by the great Howard Pyle. The illustrations fit the themes of the tables well (with one exception). It is nice to see some classic medieval style artwork in an RPG publication, rather than the 'punk' or 'hyperdeformed' styles that seem prevalent with some publishers.

I recommend “30 Things Can Happen” as a GM resource, and give it 5 out of 5 stars. Regularly priced at $6.00, this PDF is useful for master GM's and novices alike. The right balance of short but inspiring plot points and adventure hooks; and a good price point, make this a must download.

This is the kind of product I love, tables that help me add elements to my games I would never think of on my own. Plus the author chose a nice selection of "open" art that almost always fits the section of tables it is inserted into, and the others are at least close. If you like to present opportunities to role play you will really like these tables, because most of these descriptions can drag an inquiring mind into a role play encounter that could be ran serious or even humorous. They can also easily turn into hooks for an off the cuff adventure scenario, or do some pre planning to turn them into planted hooks. If you love using tables to help inspire you, break those mental blocks, or to take even you as the GM in directions you don't know where they go, this is a PDF for you. Plus it gives your D30 purpose! Or if you don't own a D30 you can use the D6 and D10 method, which is made even easier because each Table is broken down into 3 sub tables of 10 items each. So roll the D6 to determine which of the 3 sub tables, then the D10 to get the specific result. I really feel you can't go wrong with this if you like using tables in the first place, and if you have never used tables before, this has a great chance of turning you into a fan of such products.

I've been a fan of Creative Mountain Games ever since Mark put out the 3.5E SRD. This has turned into my SRD bible, if you will.

Creative Mountain Game's latest is 30 Things Can Happen! It's an assortment of random tables to add flavor to your adventures as they are happening. They add the little things that bring life and spontaneity to the world your party is adventuring in.

You get 30 tables broken down by category: While in a City, While in the Country and While Underground. Each table is further broken down by thirds. So, depending on how you look at it, you have 30 tables with 30 entries each, or you have 90 subtables with 10 entires each. Priced at $4.50, you are effectively paying 15 cents a table (or 5 cents a subtable). A fair price in my humble opinion.

This will be one of my go-to resources in my upcoming sandbox style campaign.
