  2. I believe "Narwhal-horn" Scrimshaw was ship's bluesman aboard the ill-fated Erebus.
    P.S. Welcome back!

  5. I took 30 rolls on this table, and have linked the results with an idea in the D&D Archive for a plane-travelling bazaar - http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/re/20031110x . My party hasn't yet reached the market, they spent so long faffing around at the temple that we didn't get the chance. So it will be market day 'tomorrow'.

    One result I did get was 38. There's a result to throw up, especially if some of the stall-holders are planar travellers. What maps might be available then? Greyhawk? Harn? Barsoom? Arda? Westeros? Atlantis? Oxford? Tatooine? Needless to say, I've spent the week both googling and hand-drawing maps of various locales on- and off-world.

    Great table - thanks!
