Can you roll on a table based on the input from a prompt?

I'm having trouble figuring out how to do this, but I need to be able to input a value in a prompt then have the corresponding entry generated from a table.

I'm trying to automate the critical hits tables from Dark Heresy and so I have prompts setup to ask for the Amount of damage, the Type of damage inflicted and finally the location the damage is applied.

How should I best handle this?


  • Using [#8 Monsters] would pick item 8 on the Monsters table. Is that what you mean? Instead of a number, you'd stick the prompt variable in there.

    Or, you can make a separate table for each prompt option.
  • Option one is how I got my generator to work. Thanks for the reply though, at least that lets me know I was on the right track!
