Put something like "Battlefield Complications" in the DMG

So my idea for a "Battlefield complication" is that in a combat encounter, every round there's a 20% chance that something will happen on the battlefield that can potentially affect what happening to all combatants. And if that 20% happens roll a random table for something to happen, like smoke fills the area, a fire starts, there's a tremor, rubble covers the ground and so on.

I know this is sort of something that 4e had, even if they tied it to cards you got separately from the rest of the game products.

But I feel it's would be a neat thing to try at least in a DMG with maybe 1 or 2 pages, and it would be something that's certainly optional.
