I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

Why the downvotes? Unhappy I'm answering the question?

A couple decent suggestions buried in the predictable 5-page anti-fumble screed. Most of this answer doesn't answer the question.

Though it's important when answering questions like this to ensure you have a decent breadth of experience for the response so that it's not just "well my group has always done it this way," that is not a problem with the question but a requirement for a good answer. I think therefore this question is valid. As Good Subjective makes clear, experience is not the same thing as opinion.

There's more third party 3e stuff but house rules that actually affect your character sheet went 90% by the wayside after 2e. Anyway, 4e characters are definitely theoretically more portable, but in reality I have not seen that affect the rate of actual porting.

Isn't that what I said? But despite the seeming portability, the quick leveling and shorter campaigns means that while porting is more mechanically feasible at a given level, it's done less in practice.

OK. Answerers, please answer the question posed - "Any suggestions on where to find/how to create a better fumble table?" - instead of generically raging against fumbles then please. If you want to challenge the frame of the question go read meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/3318/… first.

comment House rules for making specific components matter for spells, magical and mundane item creation?
Putting this on hold for the moment - can you refine what your question is? "Any similar rules to anything about making magical items with stuff" is a bit broad, can you pull out your question and provide requirements for what you'd see as a best answer?
