Stuff on My Gaming Table

For the last couple of days I've been working on thing for +Mythoard.  I was checking out the materials on my desk.  I would have taken a picture, but I forgot and now I'm at work.  The first thing I wanted to use was the 1st edition DMG.  To me, it is the mother of all gaming books.  If I need a random bit of information or spark of inspiration I know I can find it within those pages.  So the DMG is first and foremost.

The second most prominent thing on my desk is a small random table I made for adventure development.  It provides a very simple spark to get my creative juices going.  I'm not a huge fan of a third of the room will be empty.  While it may not have a creature running around inside you can have some details.  Even if its just a small detail that advances the story/theme of the dungeon.

On my computer on my right hand screen I have Chaotic Shiny's Treasure Horde Generator.  It provides a lot of details that I pick and chose from.  I love it.  It helps provide interesting properties to an item beyond the +1 this or that.  

Lastly, my dice.  I don't roll no stink'n electronic, computerize bulllllshit dice.  I roll the real plastic man.  I have d10, percentage dice, d12 and a d4.  They each have a specific purpose.  It's strange to how these things can create pretty much anything.
