this guy has a RPG blog dedicated to mostly old school games and gaming (including our favorite game!)

here's a link to a directory of tables he made:

I love the tables for the Houses of Ill Repute those are great and tasteful.

neat stuff like a set of random tables for tattoos on your character

I highly recommend his blog; check it out.

I think the table(s) to promote here most from my blog would be "A Xenomorph May Be Involved" which is for creating "minor races" in a more space-opera-esque game of Star Frontiers.

Hey Dyson welcome to the development forum!

Actually w00t and I discussed this set of tables for the SFman but since IIRC they were slightly unfinished I suggested focusing on just getting 17 out and we'd see about 18. I like what you did with them and it be seriously cool if these got developed and turned into an article.

PS: I think we should also see about recasting the tables as d10 table either d5 or 2d10 etc. just to keep in line with the rest of the game.

For instance the first table has 5 itmes so it could easily be a 1d10 roll

There's Somethin Funky about that Alien (1d10)
 Die Roll
 1 Psionic Funk
 2-3 Odd Funk
 4-7 Common Funk
 8-9 Uncommon Funk
 10 With Extra Funk! (Roll on table twice)

Common Funk has 10 entries on its list so that easily becomes a d10 list
Uncommon Funk has 10 entries
Odd Funk has 9 and needs 1 more or we make one of them a 5-6 roll result with the rest getting 1 number
Psionic Funk has 8 entries, perhaps an ability could be chosen from the Mentalist PSAs in the AD remastered book? I'd almost like to make 3 separate entries be roll for a power on one of the three mentalist PSA tables. but to do that you'd have to rework or delete one of the other 8 entries to make that fit.

Basic Fomat table has 7 entries and this is fine make machine life  a 10 and maybe planet life a 1 and weight the others for what seems like it would be more common. NOTE the machine life tables were not done at all so those would need development

Manipulating Limbs table has 6 entries but is easily redone as a d10 without adding entries. Actually the same pretty much goes for the rest of the tables.

So it would seem that the only thing that needs work would be the Psionic table (a little) and the Machine life tables.

plus rearranging the d12 tables to be d10. perhaps a few more explanitory paragraphs and this would make an excellent article submission.

EDIT: The Compendium of Creatures project might be a good place to work on these tables collaboratively as one thread in its forum could be dedicated to working on Psionic funk and another could be started for machine life and the Document feature could be used to publish the tables till every thing is pulled together for a SFman article.
