A 1d100 Wild Magic Surge Table

Were you, like me, disappointed that the PHB’s Wild Magic Surge table had only 50 options on it? It irritated me so much that I put down 50 more (mostly aggregated, some invented) on top of the ones that Wizards gave us. It’s highly abbreviated and gives the DM a lot of latitude on how a particular situation might play out. Now you can rest assured that every surge roll truly is unique!
