Item description for The Mother Of All Encounter Tables (Dungeons & Dragons d20 3.5 Fantasy Roleplaying) by Greg Ragland...
One Table to Rule Them All! The Mother of All Encounter Tables is here! This utility is unlike any before conceived. This is not just a random book of tables, but a well-thought-out dungeon master utility that will make wilderness travel, city streets, and dungeon corridors all more interesting. It contains encounters for each terrain type from mountains to the ocean, in each climate from arctic to tropical, and has separate tables for day and night encounters. Also factored in are relative rarities of individual encounters, with space left for the DM to insert new monsters of his choosing. In addition to encounters with monsters and men, there are tables for unusual weather events, strange occurrences, accidents, and encounters with NPCs. Trade routes and caravans are detailed as well as trolls and dragons. After all, you never know when ants will infest your food, or when the cleric will get struck by lightning!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Mother Of All Encounter Tables (Dungeons & Dragons d20 3.5 Fantasy Roleplaying)?
Too hard to use. Aug 23, 2006
Hated it. This book was too convoluted to understand well. they made the sections too large. You have to read thru so much material to use in a random encounter that is becomes unusable in a game situation.
Want tables? Look no further Feb 8, 2006
This book has tables and tables and more tables. It has a lot of leeway in that a DM can easily replace something on the tables with something of their own invention. Have a favorite monster manual? Insert crearures from it onto the table. Don't have access to some of the creatures listed on a table? Just remove them and replace them with your favorite monsters. This book is more then about monster encounter tables though. Weather, strange occurances, finding some mundane item at the campsite the PC's chose, all can be encounters. Dms will find all kind of things they can use, some things they don't like and can easily be changed, and ways to customize various tables to suit their gaming needs. This book easily gave me dozens of idea's on things to bring into my campaign and that was just after the first reading. I find this book as important to my campaign as the core books and use it in planning every game session now.
