    Twelve and Eight

    Twelve and Eight tables are random tables that contain 19 entries from 2 to 20. You roll a result using an eight sided and and a 12 sided die and adding them up. The distribution looks as follows:

    I first saw these type of tables in the old 1st edition AD&D Monster Manual II in its random encounter tables. The neat thing about these is you have weighted results so your common events are clustered between 9 and 13, and the further away the lower the probably, with the lowest probability in the 2 and 20 entries as roughly 1% each.

    Specifically, the distributions look like this:

    So, if you are looking for a very simple bell-curve in your tables, this will work nicely.

    The Terra Gotcha

    The Terra Gotcha golem appears as a fine Terracotta sculpture, usually of a warrior, but can take on any form.

    The golem is fragile and although it can hit hard with its limbs or carried weapons, the true danger lies inside.

    It is hollow, and if damaged it will shatter and release the golems contents.

    Potential Contents:

    Oil - By itself a slippery mess with the potential to ignite from lanterns, torches.

    Phosphorous - Ignites into a massive ball of flame.

    Gunpowder - Explodes if the golem is attacked by fire/electricity. Burns intensely if ignited after being released.

    Acid - Area becomes flooded by a couple gallons of potent acid.

    Poison Gas - Pick your poison.

    Small undead - small creatures, undead bodyparts, etc.

    Insect swarms

    Even smaller golems

    Note: The animating magic of the golem may serve to conceal magics and auras of things stored within.
