New Childbirth Tables

The age of the wife AND number of previous children born determines which chart to use.
EACH CHILD BORN adds 1 to the Age. Thus a woman who is age 32, but has had five children, uses Table 3.

  • Age 15-25, use Table 1
  • Age 26-35, use Table 2
  • Age 36-45, use Table 3
  • Age 46+, use Table 4
*1d6 for each child, odd = female, even = male
