The Creative Advantage of Random Lists

Random lists help push our creative minds in new and interesting directions. Chapter 3, 5, and Appendix A of the Dungeon Master's Guide are packed with awesome tables to shake you out of your rut and think up some wild ideas for your D&D adventures. The Lazy DM's Workbook is also full of random lists for this reason and products Waterdeep: City Enounters showcase their value as well. Random lists and a creative brain together are a D&D superweapon. We don't use random lists on their own, we use these lists to push our brains out of a groove and explore ideas we never before considered.

As we run a campaign in a particular world, it helps bring the players into the world when we wrap pieces of our adventures in lore so our players can learn about the world as they explore it.

Random tables from the Dungeon Master's Guide and the Lazy DM's Workbook don't have any particular world's flavor or lore to them. We have to add that. If, however, we're playing in a world like Ebrron, we can use a list like the one above so we can combine our other random tables with world-specific lore.

Use this list along with your other random lists to make the world come alive.
