d 100 Bag of Useless Things
« on: July 09, 2003, 06:21:12 PM »
Ylorea posted the original bag of useless things and it's a great item, but anything worth doing is worth taking too far. And so we begin a quest to create a d 100 bag of useless things. As already pointed out in Ylorea's bag, some of these things will be useful sometimes, but in general use, these will be useless.

    1   1d3 chocolate cookies
    2   A masterwork sling bullet
    3   A piece of white cloth (4*4 inch)
    4   1d8 copper pieces
    5   A small, fragile glass figure of a butterfly
    6   A 20 ft length thread of wool (getting it out takes 1d4+1 rounds)
    7   An apple
    8   1d3 pine-apple cones
    9   A handful of grain
    10  1d3 chocolate cookies
    11  Some cow-dung
    12  A wooden spoon
    13  A silver brooch worth 2 gp which disappears after 1d8 hours
    14  A small bronze key
    15  A wooden fork
    16  A 10ft branch from a oak tree, including leaves
    17  A gallon of water
    18  A dinner knife (damage is 1d2-1, breaks on a critical hit)


The above are from Ylorea's bag. The following are new from me.  8)

    19  Captain Penguin's Hat
    20  A taco
    21  A glove made from a mindflayers face
    22  A copper coin that shines with the light of a torch every couple of seconds
    23  A tupperware sandwich box
    24  A bent nail
    25  An itsy bitsy yellow polka dot bikini thong panty
    26  A used q-tip
    27  2 feet of toilet paper
    28  a spark plug
    29  A polyester tie with a topless hula dancer printed on it
    30  4 cold french fries
    31  A treasure map. Features a red haired pirate in a yellow suit and red and white striped stockings leading to a pair of golden arches
    32  A barrel hoop
    33  A 2 inch cube of beeswax
    34  12 inches of floss
    35  A dessert fork
    36  A snuff box full of dried and shredded platupus droppings
    37  Wombat bait
    38  7 inches of plaid ribbion

Alright, I'm done for now. Next, please!
After a brief retirement while I got married and traveled the country, I'm back. Just getting back into the swing of things for now, but gearing up to hit things up like I used to.

You know, the advantage of 20 options is that it fits one piece of paper and then it is actualy usable in real play.

(Oke, they lost it, as all the players died last session, shame on me, but they were to doing to stupid things to survive at any rate.)

Dont get me started, I do not feel remorse, but if forced I will tell you what happened.

Yours,

Ylorea

Oh, by all means, 20 items lists are much more useful in gaming than d 100 lists. Your bag was excellent as it was. I'm just over doing it for the fun of it.

I'd like to also take this moment to applaud everyone for thier ideas. We've almost completed a d 100 list in a single day! I have a couple ideas that could finish it, but I'd like someone else's ideas to fill it out. Then maybe we should edit it, like do we really need 3 entries for bent nails? Great work and Many Thanks to the patrons of Strolens!

I kinda' like the way that the bent nails continued to be in larger and larger forms, like:
A few bent nails
A ball of bent nails twisted together
A five pound box of bent nails

97.  A scroll written in a strange language.  When translated, it is a nonsensical rant in the style of Happy Noodle Boy.  (If you really want to know, PM me.)

98.  A squeaky moose.

I like the progression of the nails as well. I am guilty of adding it because I refuse to read the first ones until after I do mine so I don't get persuaded by them, missed on the double check for duplications though.

Leave the nails, I LIKE THEM! Handy and useless at the same time!!

3) half melted candle
4) a bent nail
5) packet of salt
6) packet of peper
7) a glob of clay

13) 1 bunch poison ivy leaves
14) cracked cup
15) quill and a little spoiled ink
16) a bundle of strong herbs
17) marble

Thanks again to everyone that contributed. Moonhunter has shown how easy it is to make a simple d20 list, I think that anyone that has a random table they want filled up, this is the place to come. Thank you all and goodnight.

I belive that a d 100 is hefty and cumbersome enough without taking it further. I think we would all end up insane if we continued and try to make a d 100 list to choose which d 100 list of useless items to use. 10,000 useless items?!? It can be done, but I'm rather attached to my sanity at the moment.

For reasons that even I don't fathom, I have put the List of Useless Things up on my website.  http://knighthawk.rpgcitadel.com/uselessbag.html

Do not ask, for I do not know.

Just for fun.

Always need a list of junk to pull out of a bag of holding anyway, or any other thing that holds tons of stuff without knowing what is in it.

If nothing else you can use some ideas to fill a 'money purse' lifted by your parties thief. The purses are not always filled with copper and silver are they? I hope not!
