Simple Weather Table

A random table to get an idea for the day's weather during a game.

Sometimes while playing, you will not have a predetermined idea of what the weather should be. You can use this table to get a good idea!

This type of table is known as a Blunderbuss Table as it spreads out the possibilities from a few to a greater amount each step down. This has the abstract effect of sort of acting like a cone, reminiscent to the spread of shot being fired from a blunderbuss.

I didn’t create this table but have used it in the past to great effect. It was created by gnarlymuppet over on the Behind the Tables subreddit.
