The Book of Random Tables: Pirates

Selected Option:

Do you play a pirate-themed tabletop RPG? Running a pirate D&D campaign? Cut down GM prep with 24 D100 random tables and a pirate hideout generator.

Ahoy there, matey! Avast ye and lend an ear!

As with the other books in the series, game masters can use these tables in many ways. They can be used in preparation for an RPG session or they can be used during the session at the table. Items can be selected or rolled using percentile dice.

The first section is Items & Things. Here are useful tables like Items in a Harbor Master’s Office, Items in a Ransacked Vessel, Items in a Ship Captain’s Quarters, Items in a Ship’s Kitchen, and Items in a Treasure Chest. Next is Cargo. There are two tables here: Bulk Cargo and Other Cargo. The Other Cargo is made up of smaller items that could possibly be found in a vessel’s hold.

The Encounters section helps spice up visiting islands and sailing the seas with Island Encounters and Items, Things in the Water, and Weather Encounters. Names is a large section that gives game masters the ability to easily add realness to their fictional worlds with fitting names. There are 300 names for pirates and 300 more for pirate ships. The Rumors section is one large table of story hooks and ideas that characters can discover on their travels.

The Nautical Terms section can help GMs and players understand archaic words and rarely-used phrases, which their characters would have known. Pirates loved to spend their loot. The Taverns sections provide fascinating places for the characters to hang out and to get into trouble. The NPCs section is simply 100 different names with professions so game masters can always have a non-player character ready.

The Pirate Hideout Generator consists of five short random tables. These create the bones of a hideout that the GM can then flesh out and use in their adventures. Treachery, battles, and treasure await you on the seven seas. Cut the mooring lines and set your sails for adventure.

Once again, a product that has nothing to do with the Savage Worlds system.
And useless for most Savage Worlds settings.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
