D&D 5E Best Random Adventure/NPC/Exploration/Etc Generator Books


Title says it all! I'm looking for suggestions on good Random Generator/Tables books for Adventure Generation, NPC Generation, Travel/Exploration Encounters, etc..

I've seen this: "The Game Master's Book of Non-Player Characters" and this "The Game Master's Book of Random Encounters" but both are really just a big list of NPCs/Encounters not a generator (although I must admit they booth seems pretty good).

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Yoon Suin. It's the best D&D setting I've purchased in 30 years of gaming, and it has A LOT of generator tables :)

Plus slugmen!

The random NPC tables in the DMG can produce several billion unique characters.


That's my dog, Walter
Ultimate Campaign and Gamemastery Guide from Pathfinder both have a bunch of tables for all sorts of stuff.

Here are a few I am using on top of Donjon. If you were running 3.5 or Pathfinder I would have a library of links for you heh.
