Jump to: navigation, search

The Rod of Chance is a more advanced version of the Rod of Wonder capable of far greater random feats of magic. Envisioned by a wizard who's name is long forgotten but never completed. When using the Rod of Chance roll 1d2 and 1d%, adding 100*(the d2's result-1) to the d%, and find the effect on the table below. This is an item I never got around to finishing so please feel free to add to the table fill in the blanks!
