d100 Strange Memorials

Recently on my Gothic table compilation project I found I had repeated some stuff so now taking a while to check my past blogs. It is a bit time consuming - normally i churn out as fast as I can. Id rather write 3 or 4 blogs imperfect than spend a few days editing and still get things wrong. At worst tables that over lap can just add diversity. I started d100 stuff because I don't like repeated results of smaller dice so being able to use another set occasionally or a Judges Guild book. I like my own stuff because it is nastier and grittier than stuff on market.

This is for graves to find in a sandbox to springboard adventure or exploration

I wish i did this - fits in well

Good for rich bodies
coffins and common bodies
funery urns to smash for loot
more graves more oriented for barbarians
Graveyard generators and basic guardians
Older crypts table and extra grave guardians- i would class these as tombs more now
Spooky stuff in graveyards

Some Definitions
In older post I had crypts as smaller structures, tombs as larger or more elaborate and mausoleum as a built graveyard. By some definitions Crypt has a surface opening and is mostly underground but mist must have a surface entrance.

Other tables described graves to loot and kickstart adventure or provide distractions. This table more about curious memorials which might just be curiosities, local colour or inspire adventurers to loot them. It's a different approach to same problem but more about decorating grave plots with interesting stuff than leading to adventure.
