The Bogey Chart 3Edit

{{#set:Summary=This is designed as a replacement for previous incarnations of The Bogey Chart.}} Okay, so new format for this chart. Presented below are 5 separate lists consisting of Boons, Bogeys, Flavors, Boon Gear and Bogey Gear. Any use of this article is to be DM supervised. Results generated by these lists are generally referred to as "bogeys", despite whatever list it came from.

Each player rolls once on each list unless a reroll is deemed necessary by the DM. Some players like to keep their bogeys secret, so a DM should ask players beforehand if they would like to go aside with him to roll on the lists. A DM may opt not to use the gear lists. It is recommended that the gear lists are not used for characters of an ECL greater than 1.

The Bogey PhilosophyEdit

Dungeons and Dragons is a game. It's supposed to be fun. The bogey chart is supposed to make it more fun. Though, it may not be your kind of fun, in which case it would make your game less fun. If that is the case, don't use it. If you like what you read below, consider testing it out in a short one-session game to see how it works with your group.

If someone rolls something they very much protest to taking for their character, a DM should not force it upon him. Drastic unwanted changes to your character make a game less fun. Hopefully, this version should remove most of the instances of that happening.

Using This ArticleEdit

As for game balance, this article is likely to create a few disparities. Use with caution.

If a player rolls a bogey on a list, and later rolls something else on another list that counteracts or cancels out a previously rolled bogey, the DM should allow a reroll.

If your gaming group decides to use this, every player must roll on it.

BoonsEdit

Boons are the bonus aspect of this article and grant a minor mechanical bonus to your character's abilities. Roll a d100:

Table: The Chart of Boons
#         Boon Description
1 Basic Training You gain regular ol' Weapon Focus for a weapon you are proficient with.
2-3 Burley You gain a +1 racial bonus to Strength.
4-5 Talented Choose a "Usable Untrained" skill not on your class skill list. This skill is now always a class skill (such as Appraise, Balance, Bluff, Climb, Concentration, Craft, Diplomacy, Disguise, Escape Artist, Forgery, Gather Information, Heal, Hide, Intimidate, Jump, Listen, Move Silently, Ride, Search, Sense Motive, Spot, Survival, Swim, Use Rope).
6-7 Multilingual You have learned an additional language of your choice.
8-9 Resilient You gain a +1 racial bonus on Fortitude saves.
10-11 Saw it Coming You gain a +2 dodge bonus to your AC against projectile and thrown weapon attacks.
12-13 Darkvision You gain Darkvision out to 60 feet. If you already have Darkvision, it extends another 60 feet.
14-15 Diver You gain a +2 bonus on Swim checks. In addition, you can hold your breath for eight times your Constitution before you risk drowning. If you already have a swim speed or the ability to breathe underwater (or no need to breathe at all), you may re-roll.
16-17 Nimble You gain a +1 racial bonus to Dexterity.
18-19 Compensate When you roll a natural 1 on a d20 for an attack roll, your next attack roll made in that encounter (up to a minute later) gains a +2 morale bonus.
20-21 Potion Plus When you consume a healing potion, you gain 1 additional HP per potion dice (such as +1 for a 1d8 cure light wounds or +3 for a 3d8 cure serious wounds). When you consume a potion with a duration, it lasts for 1 unit of time longer in whatever unit of time it is measured in (such as rounds, minutes, 10 minutes or hours).
22-23 Spiritual Connection You have the supernatural ability to communicate via "spiritual communication" with one other being (an NPC no greater than 3 ECLs higher than you, chosen by you, approved by your DM). As a standard action, you may converse ("speaking" or "listening" in your head). If you fail to take the action to receive a message from your spiritual connection, you "hear" gibberish. This connection works across planar boundaries but not through barriers of force and cannot be changed to be connected to another being.
24-25 Move to the Beat Any musical Perform check result of 20 or higher inspires courage in you (much like the bard ability) when you hear it. The effect lasts for as long as you hear the music and for 5 rounds thereafter. You receive a +1 morale bonus on saving throw against charm and fear effects and a +1 morale bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls. At 10 HD this bonus increases to +2 and increases again to +3 at 20 HD. This is a mind-affecting ability. Additionally, you are immune to the effects of irresistible dance.
26-27 Walk It Off Your natural healing rate is twice as fast as normal. You recover only 2 HP per HD for a full rest.
28-29 Throw It! You gain the Throw Anything Complete Warrior feat.
30-31 Tough You gain a +1 racial bonus to Constitution.
32-33 Immune System You gain a +2 racial bonus on Fortitude saves against diseases.
34-35 Armor Master Your armor check penalty is reduced by 1 (though never reducing it beyond 0). If you are not proficient with armor, reroll.
36-37 Desperate Speed When running from danger or running into danger (taking a run action), you gain a +10 foot morale bonus to your base land speed. You gain a +4 bonus on your Constitution check to continue running in these conditions.
38-39 A Good Night's Rest You gain the Rapid Metabolism feat.
40-41 Turtle When you fight defensively, you gain a +4 dodge bonus, instead of a +2 bonus. When you enter a total defense, you gain a +6 dodge bonus, instead of +4.
42-43 Low-light Vision You gain Low-Light Vision. If you already have Low-Light Vision, you gain Superior Low-Light Vision, allowing you to see four times as far in conditions of low illumination.
44-45 Tactical Training You gain a +1 bonus on trip, disarm and sunder attempts.
46-47 Unassociated Boon You gain a +1 racial bonus to your lowest ability score. If it is a tie, you choose which of the lowest scores receive this boon.

50-51 Sprightly Dodger You gain a +1 racial bonus on Reflex saves.
52-53 Popeye You choose your favorite food or drink. When you consume it, once per day, you gain the effects of a bull's strength. This is an extraordinary effect. Duration is based off of your HD.
54-55 Never Give Up You gain a +2 morale bonus to attack rolls and damage when your HP drops to or below your ECL (example: 3 HP at ECL 3).

66-67 Thick Skinned You gain a +1 natural armor bonus to your AC.
68-69 Combative You gain a +1 bonus on grapple, bull rush and overrun checks.
70-71 On a Roll When you roll a natural 20 on an attack roll and roll another 20 on your confirmation roll, you gain a +2 morale bonus on your attack rolls for that encounter (up to 1 minute later).
72-73 Feats of Skill Choose a feat that grants a +2 bonus for two skills as a bonus feat (such as Acrobatic, Agile, Alertness, Animal Affinity, Athletic, Autonomous, Deceitful, Deft Hands, Diligent, Investigator, Magical Aptitude, Negotiator, Nimble Fingers, Persuasive, Psionic Affinity, Self-Sufficient, Stealthy).
74-75 Second Wind You can, as a standard action 2/day, heal yourself for a number of HP equal to your HD total.

BogeysEdit

Bogeys are the penalty aspect of this article and grant a minor mechanical drawback or shortcoming to your character's abilities. Roll a d100:

Table: The Chart of Bogeys
#         Bogey Description

4-5 Inept You suffer a lose of 4 skill points at 1st level (though you still gain a minimum of 1 skill point).

10-11 Gullible You suffer a -1 penalty on Will saves.
12-13 Slight Load Your carrying capacity is determined as if you were a size smaller.

16-17 Arthritis You suffer a -1 racial penalty to Dexterity.

24-25 Never Tried it Before You suffer a -1 penalty on all skills without at least 1 rank.

28-29 Elemental Vulnerability Choose either fire, cold, acid or electricity. You now take 150% damage from this energy effect, regardless of a saving throw (or if that save was successful).
30-31 Sickly You suffer a -1 racial penalty to Constitution.
32-33 Alcoholic You find it difficult to resist the sweet sting of alcohol. When you are aware of the availability and nearby presence (within 60 feet) of alcohol, you must make a Will save DC 15 or be compelled to pursue obtaining the focus of your alcoholism as readily as you are able. Valid threats of harm to you override this compulsion. Additionally, you suffer a -2 penalty on any save to resist drunkenness.
34-35 Lame Gimp Your base land speed is treated as though you are always encumbered with a heavy load, which may slow you down.

48-49 Glutton You find it difficult to resist savoring the flavors that abate the grumbling hunger within. When you are aware of the availability and nearby presence (within 60 feet) of food, you must make a Will save DC 15 or be compelled to pursue obtaining this food as readily as you are able. Valid threats of harm to you override this compulsion. After eating, you are sated for 1d4+1 hours.
50-51 Weary You suffer a -2 on all saves to resist sleep effects. If you do not sleep or are immune to sleep effects, roll again.
52-53 A Poor Fit You suffer an additional point of Armor Check Penalty whenever wearing armor.

Instead of gaining a +2 bonus to those skills, you instead take a -2 penalty to those skills.
74-75 Potion Minus When you consume a healing potion, you gain 1 fewer HP per potion dice (such as -1 for a 1d8 cure light wounds or -3 for a 3d8 cure serious wounds). When you consume a potion with a duration, it lasts for 1 unit of time shorter in whatever unit of time it is measured in (such as rounds, minutes, 10 minutes or hours).

94-95 Awkward You suffer a -1 racial penalty to Charisma.
96-97 Off Focus When you roll a natural 1 for an attack roll, you suffer a -2 morale penalty to your attack rolls for that encounter until you score a successful hit (or up to a minute later).
98-99 Schizophrenic You suffer from hallucinations. When you roll a natural 1 on Spot, Search or Listen checks, you detect falsehoods which you are unable to distinguish from actuality. You typically detect the same few things, though, any falsehood is at the DM's discretion.

34-35 A Way With Others Choose one (that is not your own type): Humanoids, monstrous humanoids, giants, fey, outsiders or aberrations.

60-61 One Time Only Whenever you find yourself in a dire situation, your options are running low and things looking grim, you have the potential to call upon a force greater than yourself. Call it fate, destiny, the will of the god's or a kindly DM, but whatever it is, it only works once, ever. At a time of your choosing, you may, as a swift action, attempt to summon forth this force by rolling a natural 20 on a d20 roll. Failure does nothing and you may not try again for another 24 hours. Success means you have reached through to a greater force. The DM then, in response to the situation, makes an adjustment to the course of events to tilt them in your favor. Note that "your favor" does not necessarily mean the favor of your allies.
62-63 Conditional Choose one: petrified, polymorphed, deafened or blinded. You gain a +2 bonus on saves to resist this condition. However, you must pick a second condition from the list in which you receive a -2 penalty to checks on.
64-65 The Map In your possession, possibly passed down from your elders, or won in a game of chance, you have a map to a hidden treasure. However, the map is vague. The DM chooses where the map leads and what lies in wait.
66-67 Catchphrase You enjoy using your catchphrase whenever possible. Have other players help make suggestions for it.
68-69 Werelame Every night of the full moon (at sunset until sunrise), you suffer a purely aesthetic involuntary transformation into some manner of (typically uncommon or just plain made up) hybrid werebeast. If you are of a race that is incapable of contracting lycanthropy or you have the shapechanger subtype, reroll. Remove curse frees you of this enchantment. Your equipment changes to fit your (slightly altered) form. You gain a +2 bonus to not be identified as yourself when in this form when making a Disguise check.
70-71 One Last Act If your HP are reduced to -10 or less while you were conscious and able, you may take one last standard action before dying. However, you are beyond saving, and no healing will restore you.
72-73 Hunted An NPC keeps hiring thugs, goons, mercenaries, trackers and hunters to find you. The purpose the NPC seeks to hunt you down, as well as the minions he sends, is at the DM's discretion. The DM chooses when to introduce this into the game. Often, and hopefully, this is resolved for the PC during the course of play.
74-75 Odorous Choose one: You smell of a vegetable of your choice, you smell of musk, you smell of dirt or you smell of flowers.
76-77 Kleptomaniac You gain Sleight of Hand as a class skill. However, you suffer a -2 penalty to this skill when used to take an object from another creature's possession.

1 = The voice says "do it."
2 = The voice says "don't do it."
82-83 Odd Quirk Choose one: You pick your nose, you enjoy whistling or humming, you mumble, you have a loud voice, you have an obnoxious laugh, you burp loudly, you swear constantly or you have a bad cough.
84-85 Interspecies Erotica You have no qualms about pursuing a relationship outside your own race.
86-87 Longevity Your race's aging categories are boosted by an additional 25%. If your race does not age or gain aging effects, reroll.
88-89 Pug Fugly Ugh, you look like you took one too many jabs from the ugly stick, despite your Charisma.
90-91 Sleep in the Nude You don't wear anything to bed.
92-93 Descendant of Reputation You have a notable ancestor whose fame (or infamy) carries on with you.
94-95 Addict You are addicted to some drug, food, spell or consumable item of your choice. When you are aware of the availability and nearby presence (within 60 feet), you must make a Will save DC 15 or be compelled to pursue obtaining the focus of your addiction as readily as you are able. Valid threats of harm to you override this compulsion.
96-97 Pestering Presence? A thing (that only you are able to interact or with or detect) follows you around and talks to you. Choose one: A ghostly apparition, a playful pixie, a tricksy imp or a floating face.
98-99 Birth Defect Choose one: Extra fingers, extra toes, fewer fingers, fewer toes, hermaphrodite, maximum racial height, minimum racial height, 3rd nipple, unusually masculine, unusually effeminate, club foot, bulbous growth or birthmark.
100 DM LAW The DM custom picks a flavor for you from the chart above.


Gear ChartsEdit

Gear boons and bogeys are intended for 1st level characters only after players have chosen their gear with their starting money. It is a DM's decision to allow players to sell gear obtained after rolling on these charts and before play begins, but note that the default answer is "no".

Boon GearEdit

This minion levels automatically, staying at 1/3rd of your levels (minimum of 1st level).
