Everyone lose a level.

I met Gary Gygax once. When I say met, it was a Q&A at Gen Con in Manchester along with 300 other geeks. But I did have a chance to ask a question. Mine was about amateur game designers, what are now called indie. I asked what Gary thought about them. He said he wouldn't get heart surgery from an amateur heart surgeon.

That said, the random harlot encounter table will always have a place close to my heart.

01-11 Slovenly trull
11-25 Brazen strumpet
26-35 Cheap trollop
36-50 Typical streetwalker
51-65 Saucy tart
66-75 Wanton wench
76-85 Expensive doxy
86-90 Haughty courtesan
91-92 Aged madam
93-94 Wealthy procuress
95-98 Sly pimp
99-00 Rich panderer

That's the best kind. I got a cheap trollop once, and in a word, don't.

D got a cheap trollop.

I got a typical streetwalker. (I had to call D at home to get him to roll for me, of course)

I went out of may way a few dragonmeets ago to replace long lost 1ed DMG just for the silly tables in the back.

No need to be Critical!

(Or is that an Impale?)

Cheap trollop!

I've always wondered how that table crept in.

My other favourite from that end of the book is the set of tables for describing random creatures from the lower planes, from which one generates a gibbering bluish amoeba-like quadrupedal creature with gangrenous ears, etc.

Ooh, I made one of those not long ago. If I can find it, I'll post it.

Saucy Tart. Yay!

Typical Streetwalker.

Pff! I've got enough of those where I live.
