Random Disadvantage Table

Here's my Random Disadvantage table, which I use for bad Calamity Checks and similar stuff. If it calls for a specific amount of points, I'll either adjust the level or move up or down the chart on a random roll till I get something in the right range.

  1. Fun concept. How often do players run into this kind of calamity in your games? Is it typically temporary or permanent? Also, with that table, you are very close to a version that could be d6 friendly if you made it:
    d6,d6,d6
    Which has 216 equally likely combinations; Would just need to figure out something to do with the last 16 slots I guess. Specific versions of other disadvantages, like specific phobias or weaknesses?

    1. Not often, as most Threshold-based casters in my games tend to be careful to NEVER exceed their Threshold. That being said, it does come up often enough for me to have a table handy.

      I wasn't trying very hard to make it a 216 entry table, I've got some polyhedral dice and I otherwise never use them. You could probably just put enough individual Phobias on it to fill it out.
