Got Any Change?

William T. Thrasher
Yeah, I got your change right here!
   

"Hey, buddy! Got any change?" So goes one of the eternal questions. While working on entries for Oddities for a Picked Pocket I realized that our design goal of keeping monetary entries at a minimum (and by minimum we mean none) we're ignoring one of the most fundamental aspects of pockets. Namely, their ability to contain, retain, and dispense spare change. Thanks to the table below you'll never be in doubt as to how much spare change any NPC, monster, or piggy bank has on hand at any given time. Just grab a d100 and roll!
