Badguy Loot Table


Recommended Posts

I found this table on another forum. Although it was intended for BURPS, I trimmed out the system specific mechanics and found that it could easily work for HERO.


All you need are two six-sided dice...which you ought to have to begin with :tsk: .






Roll against this chart whenever the heroes are expected to come across a “cache” or otherwise find an area where they should be rewarded.

Human baddies have $20x(2d-2) in their wallets. (Possible to get $0). Additionally, lawless individuals are notorious for carrying more cash on them and the use of bling seems to be universally popular amongst criminals through the ages.


Treat them as possessing $100x(2d-2) in cash and include additional jewelry valued in the range of $300 to $1200 as well.


Named Henchmen are inclined to carry more loot. Roll an additional time on the treasure table for each “boss”.
