30 Things Can Happen - System-Free Sourcebook

Today I thought I would mention the first product in a new Creative Mountain Games product line, a System-Free Sourcebooks (for Medieval Fantasy RPGs) called "30 Things Can Happen!"  It includes thirty tables of random Medieval Fantasy events and findings in urban, rural, and underground locations.  Each thirty entry table is divided into three ten entry categories, some with additional sub-options, making for nearly one thousand random results including the fun and fantastical.  Use these pages to help flesh out locations during prep or to perk up a flagging game session.  This invaluable resource is system-free and ready to help with any fantasy roleplaying game.  Please have a closer look and see if this can be useful to your gaming.

Any chance you can give an example table? Or a one page preview or something?

I am tempted to buy this but I have a ton of this sort of material as it is. Without seeing an example it's hard to tell if this is worth adding to my collection.

Sure. Good idea. Pick a number between 1 and 30 (inclusive) then pick A, B, or C, and I'll post a sub-table right here for you.

I hope that helps give a randomly selected look at some of the contents. Also, 30 Things got a very nice review from one of the featured reviewers on RPGNow.

Thanks for taking the time to do this. I am sucker for this sort of thing so I will have to go buy it.
