HELP: Better looking Rollable Tables

Is there a way to make the output from rollable tables more attractive? I am a pro user so api recommendations welcome.  I am asking in general but if specific use helps I want to make several rollable tables to handle critical hits and fumbles then nest them Together.

Are you using a custom character sheet? They can be modified to look better via a Roll Template.

How silly do you want to get? If you create a table called "table" and paste this as the only entry: &{template:default} {{=[Big blue letters](#" style="font-size:30px;color:blue) [[2d6]] and inline rolls and [general silliness](#" style="font-size:25px;display:block;text-align:center;border:solid 2px;border-radius:5px;padding:5px;background-color:beige)}} You can create a button: [Click Me](`[[1t[table]]]) And mess with the style. But... good grief, doing that to an actual, useful table would be soul-destroying work. But I guess it works? This uses Papa's trick from the megathread - it only works from a button, not from a direct roll.

RecursiveTable has some options for better looking Rollable Table Output, particularly with images.

Thanks Aaron as always I appreciate your advice. I’ll check out that script. 
No custom sheet just the 2nd edition Ad&d.

Not sure if anyone mentioned you can do inline-rolls with rollable table results to make it look [[1t[How Awesome Or Good Or Bad]]] in the middle of a sentence. That's what I use for NPC, it does a paragraph that rolls their [[APPEARANCE]] and [[Personality]] and their [[Profession]], into the chat with the yellow highlights.
Gold. Nice to meet another 2e player. I did not know that. I’ve always avoided rollable tables for some reason. This is really the first time I’m messing with them so all the advice is appreciated as are any other tricks.
