Disgusting Treasures


Here is a list of those not-so-attractive treasures that the PC’s might find on their quests.


Some of these can be quite nasty.

Sooo, the PC’s are opening a backpack, hoping to find it littered with coins, or a chest, pouch and so on and so forth. Well, sometimes there are no jewels, money or gold to be found. After killing a goblin you’re more likely to find dead insects in his pouch than anything else, perhaps an acorn also. But this list focuses on other things than acorns. This here list focuses on those disgusting and horrible things you’re PC’s might find.

1. A stained handkerchief.

2. Several severed toes.

3. A bag full of excrements.

4. A lewd drawing.

5. Illustrations of torture techniques.

6. Rats in a stew pot. Mmmh.

7. A mouldy piece of cheese.

8. Curdled milk with green scum on the top.

9. A glass eye smelling of urine.

10. Matted fur that crawls with movement.

11. A set of mouldy wooden teeth.

12. Human skin with bad jokes written on it.

13. A pouch full of eyes.

14. A string of childrens ears.

15. A bag of insects impaled on needles.

16. A severed head with the eyes picked out.

17. A mug of pus.

18. A sewing kit containing sewed lips.

19. A backpack filled with vomit.

20. Grimoir tainted with the smell of stomach acid.

46. A pigs bladder bag stuffed full of someone or some things intestines.

47. Rations of toad jerky.

48. A jar full of troll spittle. Labelled "mouth wash".

49. An amphora of stinking, bubbling, fermenting fruit. On closer inspection it also contains half submerged and deteriorating goblin testicles.

Great work with this truly disgusting sub! Some of the revolting items you've mentioned will definitely find good use in an upcoming sub of mine. It is truly worthy of a five.

Hu's Iron Ball

       By: Murometz

Hu was an ambassador of the Seventh Emperor of the Reng Dynasty. Throughout his life he traveled across many miles and lands to entreaty with neighboring kingdoms and the semi-savages who dwelled amidst the Metal Mountains.

During one such diplomatic mission, Hu was gifted a small iron marble as a gesture, by a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe. Little else is known of Hu, but that marble was lost and is now somewhere out there for someone to find.

A tiny, shiny sphere, the marble has several properties. First and foremost it is a strong magnet, considerably stronger than its size and density would indicate.

Secondly, if thrown or rolled upon the ground and the command word is spoken, the iron ball will magically enlarge to either the size of an ogres's head or to that of a great globe, twelve feet in diameter. The rolling ball of either size will continue to roll or fly at the same relative speed it was when launched as a marble, and can thus cause great damage to anything in its path. The magnetic power of the ball will also magnify when enlarged.

Legends claim that the ball has been tossed from besieged castles upon attacking foes and rolled at marching armies in ages past. At the end of such rolls, the larger size globe has been known to not only crush soldiers underfoot, but to also "collect" many dozens of metallic weapons and bits of armor unto itself, appearing as an armored sphere, with swords and spears sticking out from it in all directions.

Owning this powerful marble has its drawbacks. Anyone carrying it on their person, will experience the iron ball's insidious effects after some time. The owner feels no worse for wear, but after two month's time they will suddenly awaken one morning to find that their hair has fallen out completely, their teeth loosened like baby's teeth ready to drop, and their fingernails simply shriveled and sliding off the fingers and toes. Perhaps unbeknownst to the owner at first, the iron ball also renders an owner sterile or barren by this time.

Regular clerical healing will not reverse this horrible malady. Only finding and beseeching a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe to heal the iron ball's effects with their particular brand of magic, will work.

Hu's Iron Ball should be handled carefully by players and gms.
