My D&D Solo Roleplay Folder

My D&D Solo Roleplay Folder

Here are the resources I have in my ring-binder folder that I use whenever I solo roleplay.

I have added this over time and it is a combination of hand-written tables and tables and other information taken from various sources.

I have changed stuff to suit my own preferences and recommend you do this as well.

Hopefully this will get you started. Don’t be overwhelmed – just pick two or three of the references linked below and start from there.

My Ratings For Every Dungeons And Dragons Edition

My Ratings For Every Dungeons And Dragons Edition

I thought it would be fun to rate each edition of D&D.

Encounter Table Design For DnD

I have written about how good Dungeons & Dragons random encounter tables are before, both in this blog and in issue 7 of my zine

In this post I want to respond in a way to a video I watched where the host was explaining how bell-curve random tables are not truly random and shouldn’t be used. A single die with a way to roll higher than the max would be better. 

I both agree and disagree with this notion. 

It all comes down to what you want to get out of the table and what area in your campaign world the table is for. 

Let’s dive into it.
