Reddit: 100(+) interesting treasures

A recent post on the RPG subreddit asked for “Help me make a list of 100 interesting treasures“.  And, well, the fine folks on Reddit responded, including your humble blogger.

I’ll give you a sample of my own offerings, but there is a huge pile of ideas there, and I recommend you go there and pick your favourites.

A nicely-made chess set, with pieces of gold and ivory, with squares of jet and marble.

An amusing toby-jug (a mug made in the shape of someone’s head) with a caricature of an old king.

A triptych – three paintings hinged together – showing scenes from a local deity/saint’s life. Would be considered valuable to a nearby church/temple.

A finger bone in a finely-wrought box inlaid with silver. A relic of a famous saint/demigod/etc.

Elf-stones – actually pre-historic flint arrowheads, but popular as good luck charms amongst the local peasantry.

Another chess-set, this one carved in soapstone, clearly peasant made, representing elves versus goblins. Should be good for a few silver.

A really good fishing rod.

The deeds to a nearby manor. You would be very unlikely to overthrow the claim of the people who actually live there, but they’d likely buy back the documents to solidify their position.
