For a very long time I used a program called “Table Master” to make and roll random tables for all of my RPG needs. After some 15 years, the program no longer works on my new super woot computer. Does anybody know any programs available now that will work on modern computers into which I can create my own random tables?

WhenI want random results computers are not generally my first choice however...

They will require internet connectivity

I have never seen an app to run locally but im sure they exist.

We had real books not PDFS and we carried them on carts we pulled ourselves that we built by hand. We had Thaco and we were happy. If we needed dice we carved ours out of wood. Petrified wood just because we could.

If it's a DOS program, you could use Dos-Box to run it.

Just stick the %s and Outcomes in a spreadsheet and roll physical dice.

If you're going to go through the trouble of typing in all the outcomes, then you might as well pick a cell and type "=round(rand()*100,0)", and have the spreadsheet roll percentile for you every time the sheet is refreshed.

Thanks! I always like these tidbits for Excel!

Just press F9 for it to roll again with a new number.

You can do the same for the other dice just by changing the multiplier. However use "roundup" for D4, D6, D8, D12, and D20, and use "rounddown" for D10. That way you avoid a "10" on the D10, and a "0" on the rest.
