D&D 5 has a random Carousing Table, but if you’re like me you think it could have a lot more entries on it. Most of the entries involve simple financial loss or gain, but there are a couple of real interesting entries. This table adds more of that.
Most of these entries involve some question. This question is to be answered by the player.
If you want crazy things to happen when you Carouse, use this table!
When you spend your downtime action to Carouse, roll 1d20
1: You wake up in a strange place, with no memory of how you got there. You are missing 3d6 x Level GP.

4: You are wanted in connection of a crime. What did you do?
5: You drank a Potion of Love intended for someone else? Who are you smitten with?
6: An NPC helped you out of some trouble, and now you owe them a favor. What did you do, and who helped you?
