A few week’s ago we asked our forum users to share some of their favorite ways to use Rollable Tables. This customizable feature allows for a single item to be randomly chosen from collection of several. Though commonly used for custom dice or any other list of items that may need to be “rolled” - many of our users have found alternative ways to use this tool.
