- body locations - use it for locating hits in combats, where tentacle mutations emerge from, or even where you got your carousing tattoo
- ship locations - what the meteorites disabled and how badly, or where the Greek fire is burning
- fortress locations - which walls the orcs are swarming and how many of them
- fortress creation - how many troops of various sorts, type of lord etc.
- village creation -type of lord, number of families etc.
- city locations - robberies in a hero game, plague outbreaks in a fantasy setting
- quick and dirty pantheons - have all the domains (war, love, death) drop d4s for lesser deities d8s for the biggies
- random rituals - gems, plants, and other ingredients needed to make a spell work this time-- for chaotic magic systems or simulating absent minded wizards ("Oh yes, I need some rosemary")
- character creation - yeah it's more fun to see your character reveal itself before you, but could you make a single sheet of paper that would do it all at once? drop 6 dice for stats, one for $, one for HD, and maybe even equipment or at least starting wizard spells
- demon/monster generation - you've seen plenty of them, now do it in one dramatic role
- animal mash-up - chart has tons of animals dice dropped are different colors for different body parts- so if the blue "head" die falls on elephant your creature has an elephant head
- treasure hoard determination
