Rather than apologize for the umpteenth time about posting the contest results late, I thought I’d mix things up for being too lazy to format all your massive RPG tables in my bloggin’ interface, so I just copied-and-pasted it from Word, and it looks funky but it saved me a lot of effort and I’d do it again if I had to. i’m sure 95% of you guys know a better, smarter way to do this, but that would require me looking things up on the internet, and you know I can’t be bothered to do that. Anyways, your return journey to the land of ridiculous RPG tables begins on the next page…

The DC film adaption table! roll between 1-10 to determine the fate of your favorite dc superhero film!!!
1-ok adaption. The film is a moderate success and takes only a few liberties with the characters. Neutral effect on all players.
2-synopsis submission-the writers hired for the adaption go insane, rewriting the script to their own interests and changing the key plot points. Does not affect Executive class.
3-copyright cop-out: The original creator of superhero comes out of the woodwork, demanding the rights to their character be given back to them. invokes +3 sympathy from fan class, otherwise no effect on production.
4-Director Defector: Director drops out of production citing “creative differences”. Replaced by mediocre director, who recieves -2 potential.
5-What happened, Warner Brothers?: seriously, what the f***?
6-fanboy freakout: any film with less than 5 potential recieves critical damage from fanboys, who insist that it will never live up to the original comics.
7-Alan Moore:You will never make Alan Moore happy. -5 negotiating skill.
8-Rinse and Repeat: Executive recieves +2 superdickery by calling for a reboot of a franchise.
9-Pyrrhic victory: The movie is a box-office success, but is shunned by fans for its inaccuracies. Super effective when combined with Handsome actor class.

Mabel and Mabel’s Cable Fable Table
Charile Chaplin co-star Mabel Normand and the world’s first female tiger trainer Mabel Stark enjoy getting together to watch cable programming based on fables and fairy tales, from the Reese Witherspoon-starring Freeway to Harvey Fierstein’s The Sissy Duckling, thus making it difficult for the party to distinguish each encounter for what it is. In addition to watching the fable-based shows, these two cable TV fans are 30% likely to know valuable information about what networks DISH might be dropping, 15% likely to make something up to gain a universal remote, and 20% likely to be, or work with, a Nielsen ratings viewer. You may find it useful to use the sub-table below to see which cable fable programming Mabel and Mabel are watching:

Hope this one hasn’t been done already:
Your character is required to roll a 20-sided die. Roll a d20 to determine the result of your character’s roll:
A table to see what a character would roll in game? Brilliantly dumb. This is the Platonic Ideal of ridiculous RPG tables, and truly, Daniel deserves 1d10 shirts for his idea — oh well, I rolled a 1. Still, better than zero, right? And what’s this?
For use with any modern day setting game using a d20
