Item Loot Tables

Quite a few people have talked about this in the past, myself included. I’ve even seen some simple tables created, but nothing that felt “complete” to me.

The reason I want to do this is because I store my cards in a binder, and for me, this makes card draws MUCH easier. This is an early items list. It is NOT even close to complete yet, but I wanted to post it to sort of show what I am thinking This is an early draft, and I’d LOVE to hear feedback from anyone interested in this.

So, what I’m wanting to do here:

  • Create a Roll Table for items that includes everything available for the game.
  • Create a Roll Table for items that is easy to update with future expansions.
  • Create a thematic Roll Table for different types of search locations, to include Roll Tables for different enemy and container types.

That looks really good! Thank you for doing all that work!

Still a work in progress, but it’s a start!

When I finish up with this one, I’ll likely do one for danger cards and quests as well.

I like the idea. Especially with RPGs I’m always torn between rewarding players with items that suit them or completely random loot. I prefer the latter.

One question though: how do you roll on the table for 55? So you use a random number generator for that, or is there some kind of specific dice combination?

2 Likes

It’s a work in progress still. And the list doesn’t include Armor either. If you’re looking to use it right now, roll a percentile and reroll if you miss the chart. :stuck_out_tongue: Next version of the chart I post I’ll make an effort to get that initial chart balanced a little better.

Also, I don’t know how you go about search items, but I’m putting the list together with the hope of making it sort of iconic. Nuka Cola machine would roll from the Nuka Cola chart for example. But I’ll get into more of the thematic groupings next time I get to work on it.

You are right though, eventually my goal will be to get everything grouped for common dice numbers. 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20, 100 as most gamers will have those sizes already.

REALLY surprised at how many people have given the first post a like though. Goes to show that there’s a lot of interest in something like this. :heart:

Updated the original post with some more work. Want a roll table for a specific type of container, by all means, let me know. I’d also be interested in hearing feedback on what’s been done already? Some items appearing more often than you think they should? Not often enough? I’m trying to balance probability with how often it “feels” like I find any given item when playing, but I’m ballparking it, so I’m sure there’s a lot of room for refinement.

Updated or added to the above:
Random Roll Table
Armor
Caps
Clothing
Food
-Cooked
-Fresh
-Meat
-Prewar
Junk
Medical
Other
Creatures:
-Radroach
-Radscorpion
-Yao Guai
Updated notes (Basically a list of themed search groups I’d like to make. The list will almost certainly grow in time. Feel free to suggest additions.)

I kind of assumed such a table existed in the RPG book? Kinda bumbed it sounds like they dont have loot tables.

Great resource Gatekeeper!

Thanks! It’s still a work in progress, but it’s coming along little by little.

The RPG book actually has a cost table, but there’s nothing there to generate random loot. The current system makes it just as likely you’ll pull a pipe pistol out of a pile as that you’ll pull a suit of X-01 armor (And lets face it, if you’re already using an item, you’re going to have a hard time pulling it from the deck as well. :stuck_out_tongue: ). One of the things I’m trying to do here is make the item pulls feel a little more natural while making the management of your deck easier.

Looks like the next week is going to be pretty busy for me, but hopefully I’ll get back to this again fairly soon and can finish up most of what I’ve got planned at the moment.

Updated the roll tables above.

  • Added target numbers for Junk table.
  • Added target numbers for Mods table.
  • Created Garage table.
  • Created Hospital table.
  • Created Office table.

How it stands right now, I think I’m going to put this set of roll tables on hold for the time being. I want to do additional themed table and such, but with Wave 3 coming out in a couple of weeks, I’ll wait until I can incorporate the cards from that before wading much further into this.

In the meantime, as time allows I intend to start work on the creature/danger/stranger tables next with events, explore, and quests coming some time after that.

Used it today at Nanocon. Worked well.

Awesome! We talked about going today, but then the weather started to turn and we decided to just hunker down instead.

Hope your game went well!

Hey there!

Cool tables. We used them in our Settlement-Mode-Campaign and they work pretty good.
It helps, because we don’t have to shuffle ALL items for the normal game and than sort them for the settlement phase.
Thank you very much for that!

Only thing:
When in Settlement Mode and you roll for a weapon (there is a building which says you have to), you have no table that says something like:

Weapons
1-3 Melee
4-6 Side Arms
7-9 Long Arms
10 Heavy

(That’s what we invented)

Thanks again :cowboy_hat_face:

Very happy to hear you’re getting use out of the chart! I’ll see if I can improve the chart for the weapons groupings moving forward.

I still need to get back to this and add all the Wave 3 stuff to it too.

Ain’t that the truth. This seems particularly relevant when it comes to hobbies.

That’s pretty cool!

Do you have this in a printable-friendly format?
That’s something I’d want to use at the table as I reckon a lot would. Let’s face it, who wants to shuffle all their cards together for random item loot?

This is a project I need to get back to and flesh out with the newest again. This is the only format I currently have it in.

If you’d like some help - DM me! I have some ideas and can help out with formatting if you’d like.

I don’t think the site has the option to DM.

The jest of what I did was that I compiled a list of all the items they had cards for at the time. Then I grouped those items by type (Melee, Armor, Junk, Grenades, etc) before setting it up so one dice roll would call a grouping, then a second dice roll would call the item from that grouping.

Ah, for some reason I thought it had DMs. Too many forums to keep track :man_shrugging:

Anyways, my ideas were:

  • I love using github for shared resouces like this, even if they’re just text files. You can publish things publicly, and update it over time without a ton of overhead. If github is too techy, though, even a publicly-shared Google Doc works nicely too.
  • With the different environments introduced in Into the Wasteland, it would be cool to have different tables for different areas.
  • Have rare entries for legendary/unique weapons or items.
