Wasteland Roll Talbes

Like the Items roll tables I’ve posted previously, this is for the Wasteland deck. I’ll make an effort to update this as new sets come out and refine it as needed along the way.

The reason I want to do this is because I store my cards in a binder, and for me, a roll table makes card draws MUCH easier. This is an early Wasteland list. It is complete, but still needs refinement. 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 the Wasteland that includes everything available for the game.
  • Create a Roll Table for the Wasteland that is easy to update with future expansions.
  • Create a thematic Roll Table for different types of encounter, to include Roll Tables for different enemy types and container types.

NOTE 1: As the Creatures are resolved per the above chart, the “Creature” “Disturbed Wildlife” “Something Stirs” “Unusual Noises” and “Was that Movement” cards have not been included with the “Danger” roll table.

The creatures have been divided into groupings for a reason beyond just making them easier to roll on a 10 or 20 sided dice. They’re also usable as a theme table if you are looking for something specific.

I intend to split the “Stranger” grouping into a more manageable grouping. I’m open to suggestions on how best to split them.


Looking good! I would change one small thing though: the roll for Strangers is basically 1D30 which as far as I know doesn’t exist. I’d use a 2D20 table instead and spread out the common encounters more, like you already did.

I know you can use randomizer on your phone or the internet, but If I’m using dice for the former tables, I’d want to stick with that.

Actually, there is a 30 sided dice. That said, last night I was tired and feeling lazy I’ll split the group up somehow to make use of either a percentile, d10, or d20 roll system instead.

In the end, the goal will be to have everything set to numbers that can be rolled with a D&D die set, with a preference for d10 and d20.
