Currently working on finishing the Deadly Dragons Dire and Daunting zine which will be part of the Axian Library book.
It is a LARGE set of tables and tools, and today I want to share this group, which tackles the dragon's treasure hoard.
It is designed to be compatible with Old-School Essentials and so, as usual, it is compatible with BX D&D and similar editions and retroclones.
Treasure Table 1: Value
Alternate Tables: All dragons in Old-School Essentials have treasure type H, with average value 60,000gp. This and the following tables aim at generating a dragon’s hoard more quickly, while maintaining randomness, and also at making it interesting.
Roll 2d6 to establish the overall value of the dragon’s hoard. Apply modifiers resulting from the dragon’s age, if any.
Treasure Table 2: Composition
Roll 1d20 to establish the general composition of the dragon’s hoard.
Treasure Table 3: Magic Items
Alternate Table: All dragons in Old-School Essentials have treasure type H, which has a 15% chance to include 1d4 magic items plus 1 potion and 1 scroll.
This table determines in a single roll both if any magic item is present in the hoard, and the item type, making treasure generation easier and faster. The results are also more varied, and tied to the dragon’s HD.
Roll 1d20 and add the dragon’s HD.
Treasure Table 4: Origin
Roll 1d20 to determine whence the dragon’s hoard came from.
