The Random One-Shot Generator

A friend of mine ran a series of games where he made a random table and rolled each month for the next month's game. He'd prep a one-shot and learn the rules, then move on the next month.

I want to run the classic TSR modules. I also want to try the OSR clones, kick the tires and revved it up to 5000 rpms. So I came up with a way to turn it into a set of random tables. I think I should randomly roll up a one-shot and schedule it. Then roll the next random game at the end of the first game and schedule it.

(Edited to add Pits and Perils, as well as LotFP with Race and Class house rules.)
