Hello, esteemed sages, scribes, and loremasters.

I am endeavoring in a task to create a listing of treasures and items of value which have been encountered in hordes but are not shiny coins and faceted gems, nor are they items of magic (or what most of their value comes from being magical). These are the items which are listed in adventuring party bills of declared value as "Art Object" with an estimated value in gold coins following. I am sure many a merchant has looked at such a dubious entry and wondered why anyone would want something like that in such a vague manner.

The dearth of helpful information in this field, I feel, is because of the vague and wide reaching definition of "art object." The category is so vast that one would have equally difficult and thus sparse entries for "plant 5sp" or "creature 1500 gp." I scoured the internet for resources, official and home-brewed, only to turn up just over 600 such items with a recurring theme of encrusting ordinary objects with gems to increase the perceived valuation. In some cases I can understand the thinking behind these decisions especially since it is a treasure reward that will quickly be exchanged for cash by adventurers. At the same time, I expected these arts to be more... artful and desirous to have.

Maybe the Art Object needs to be designed with more of an eye as something commissioned or made with the idea someone will buy it over a similarly designed item made by a craftsman competitor. Looking around a person's home will show you a number of items on their walls, shelves, and flat surfaces that the person values. There are portraits and pictures of family (sometimes in elaborate framing), books with colorful dust jackets, small sculptures, and items of artisan work both mundane and fancy. It was this thinking that got me started in making the following items using such resources as Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue amongst others.

EDIT: See Below

Since I was compiling this list to enter into the CrystalBall treasure generator the starting numbers are (frequency - 3 common to 1 rare);(random number);(gp value to multiply the random number by);(item description). In the description I have my own notes in parentheses to add value to skills used by players.

3;2d6;4;The entire device is a long strip of calfskin leather in which a series of pockets have been sewn, overlapping in descending order.

The wheel is multilayered and has an array of windows that reveal symbols and pictures. The bottom layer has a listing of numbers, the next has more numbers, the next has dates, and the final has more numbers. Turning the dials reveals through the windows a beautifully rendered image of an animal, a yellow or blue circle/semicircle, some sort of triangle, and a feature on the head (nose, eye, or ear). (DC20 Survival: recognize a hunting guide for every region based on longitude, latitude, and time of year to hunt the specific animal to feed the number in a party, at what time of day or night, with what type of arrowhead, and what would prematurely spook the beast (DC15 Know Geography: grant oneself +5 to Survival checks for hunting food)).

The top layer has Thorassic lettering in gold but only of two letters repeating "a" and "b." The middle layer has crimson lettering in Draconic but segregated to not form words. The final layer has azure numbering in Draconic that counts up to 99 which lines up holes of windows to reveal a Dethek rune (DC15 Decipher Script: recognize a cypher that, knowing all three alphabets, allows the user a +10 competence bonus to DC of future coded messages). The wheels are very precise with crafted grooves and catches that audibly click and lock into place. (20 gp as a novelty/200 gp if sold as cryptological tool)

A brass disc with Thorassic lettering inside rule measures is bolted in place on the board with another disc of brass levered by a brass stand whose base is an arm that is apparently shifted by a tab with an arrow pointing to the Thorrasic lettering of the base disc. The second disc has larger rule measures and the Thorassic lettering seems to compose equally spaced words. Rising from the center of the second disc is a stand upon which a vertical disc is held. Attached to but spaced by bolts an inch off the plate is a half plate. The full plate has rule measures and Thorrasic lettering around the disc while the half plate has radiant lines. Attached to the half plate is a free swinging metal rod with a pointed weight. (DC 5 Disable Device: figure out how to collapse the over 2 foot tall device. DC20 Know Arcane: its a Torquetum.)

If not for the slightly off color of some adjacent tiles an observer might be fooled into thinking the object was carved from a single piece of wood. Closer inspection show small holes in the tiles filled with resin. A small hole in the bottom reveals the ball to be hollow and inside is a suspended stand for some object. If a light source is put on the stand the sphere will emit lights through the multi-colored resin holes. (DC25 Know Arcane to recognize a celestial globe/DC10 if lit). (1000 gp)

I am seeking feedback on the valuation of these items especially since some of them were based off real world prices converted 1$=1gp which I know is off but I can't really tell in what direction because of how cheap food is in Faerun compared to IRL and the opposite for metals and machines.

EDIT: I totally meant to put this link in this post:
http://forum.candlekeep.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=11916&whichpage=2

Make the best use of the system that's there, then modify the mechanics that don't allow you to have the fun you are looking for.

Some of the stuff there is pretty well thought-out, I think. Certainly some nice variations from the norm.

I did some digging to find this, too, for more potential treasure. This was originally from the old Forgotten Realms Adventures hardcover, and was also an rtf file on the Wizards site for many years.

Thank you. The variations were more in line with what I thought Realms people would be spending their money on in terms of usefulness, veneration, or just to be pleasing to the eye. I'm still surprised by what I had learned along the way and how my own thinking evolved as I had done so. Why would an object have a set value? Would it matter if the adventurers knew what the object was or what it did when trying to sell it? Could it be neat enough that a player would not want to part with it? What if there was a value beyond the artistry?

Looking into some of these things I stumbled across the Volvelles which are magic wheels like what you would find in grade school classes, interactive pop-up books, or made for games as kids. So simple and yet, with the right information, a powerful device because it is an analog computer. And there were so many more things that were part of the Middle Ages and Renaissance which are begging to be included. Just read about some of the devices at the following links and variants & possibilities almost write themselves:

Make the best use of the system that's there, then modify the mechanics that don't allow you to have the fun you are looking for.

If introduced into a wild magic zone there is a 10% chance the war hammer will be "powered up" as long as it stays in the zone and for 5-10 rounds after leaving the wild magic zone (while powered up it has all the properties of a war hammer +2 in addition to its nonmagical +1 to hit--for a total +3 to hit/+2 to damage). If brought into contact with a rod of cancellation (even when depowered) it will act as any magical item and lose its enchantment (expending the rod's power at the same time, of course). It can be enchanted normally thereafter, however. The warhammer is (85 gp) 200 gp to a collector if identified as a relic. 350 gp to a collector or sage (who studies Netheril) if identified as a Nether relic. 1000 gp to a collector or sage (of Netheril) if identified as a quasi-magical item. 1500 gp to a wild mage or sage (of wild magic or magic) if the possibility of its becoming magical in a dead magic area are known. (2000 gp to a collector or sage (of Netheril) if its history and this property are known. 5000 gp to a collector or sage (of Netheril) if a reliable way to power it up are known and provided with it and its full history is known. If its powers but not history are known it will only be (as much as a war hammer+2 if a reliable way to power it up is provided along with it. Half as much as a warhammer +2 if its properties are known but no way to power it up reliably is known.
1;4d4;250;a deer doe skull, the interior of which is fire blackened and cracked. On the top of the skull is inscribed a runic pattern in a circle, similar to those symbols used by wise men of the northern barbarian tribes. The bottom of the skull has been removed, such that the item can be used as a bowl. The skull radiates divination magic, and identification will reveal that if hot coals are placed within the skull, the cracks will rearrange themselves such that one with the proper knowledge can read them to predict accurately where game can be found on the following day. (120 gp asa curiosity/100% if recognized)
1;1d10;250;Osyluth in a Jar. This is a large block of crystal, enhanced and strengthened with magic. Inside is a bone devil, perfectly preserved. An excellent conversation piece sure to liven up any collection.
1;2d10;250;a set of clay tablets 9 inches wide, 12 inches tall, and an inch thick. Upon the tablets are Draconic letters inscribed in tightly bunched text (DC10 Speak Language or Know History to recognize Draconic letters, DC15 Speak Language to recognize Loross. Each tablet is a piece of a larger theory about the origin of magical power. Interesting but impractically academic in utility). (1% as a novelty/40% if recognized as Loross/100% if translated(250 gp per tablet))

Just to reiterate, most of this I found by going through premade game material and scouring the net. The Lion's share comes from:

Maybe I just need a reality check but am I crazy for trying to put this much detail into these items? Am I letting pop culture shows like White Collar and Pawn Stars influence me too much by making the art objects have diminished values unless the PCs can identify what they are looking at, what the reason for the objects to exist actually are, and convey that knowledge into value? "Hey, old man. How much for this dull, metal lamp housing?" Turns into "This isn't just a copper lamp housing. This was the original casing for the Beacon of Lathander discovered by the Heroes of Daggerford and used by Duke Pwyll himself to turn back the Scourge of Axe and Arrow, a huge Black Dragon of the Lizard Marsh. The brilliant light was removed and placed atop the Temple of Lathander in the town proper but the casing was lost... until now."

The stories themselves are too specific to put into the random lists but the starters are not. Recognizing reversible stitching to realize there's a coded message sewn into a coin purse, identifying a magic wheel on sight, determining that golden metal is actually gold instead of the metals that look like gold, figuring out the craftsman artistic styles, and so on should be rewards for players who have rounded out their characters with those skills. Weaponcraft is great for identifying the quality of artfully designed weapons but statuary can be assessed with skills like Stonecrafting, Perform: Sculpting, and Profession: Quarry/miner. Appraise is there for the mundane things and items with straightforward values.

Or is this really just too much effort?

I think the only real determining factor there is whether or not the effort interferes significantly with your real world daily responsibilities.

But so long as it's interesting to you without interfering, appraise on!

Nonsense! You are applying logic to something a lot of lazy, uncaring people ordinarily consider to be nothing more than "pretty-pretties". You are assigning meaning and value and purpose to what would otherwise be relegated to mere window-dressing. This adds thoughtful depth and richness to your game. There's nothing "crazy" about that. (Hey, did you see what I did, just there? I appraised the value of your gaming!)

I guess one more consideration would be whether or not your gaming associates are the type of people to appreciate your efforts. You could be indulging in this pursuit to your own ends, while completely wasting your efforts on them. Consider your audience.

I have begun stripping items from this list and dumping them into my treasure hoards!

:) Thankyou so much. This is far superior to generic art and gems.

Been a while. So I have been continuing to work on the list by updating stuff already present and adding new items. I have been paying attention to porcelain (china) and have been assigning regional makes to such items for better valuations (and to reward players who have local knowledge skills or craft/profession skills related to pottery). Do the following items make sense, have enough description to be used in your campaigns, and have a fair valuation? And how simple of a base DC check should it be (I figure Appraise Skill is base DC +5).

EDIT: See Below

3;2d4;1;a white porcelain bowl, well shaped into a five lobed flower and cracked by age, not use;5 gp;50% as novelty/100% known;DC Pottery: bone porcelain of Sembian make

3;2d4;10;a white porcelain pitcher with a flared mouth, vase-like octagonal body, a hoop handle extending from the body rising almost to the lip before looping back to the middle of the neck, and a curving spout beginning from the base of the shoulder. Blue patterns of ivy have been painted into separate panels, the central surfaces of the octagon depicting blooming orchids, daffodils with broad leaves extend up the neck, and curling lines along the handle and spout.;50 gp;;DC Pottery: Shou Porcelain from Kara-Tur

3;2d4;12;a broken porcelain plate striped by bands of gold and azure.;60 gp;worthless as is/repaired 20%/known 100%;DC20 Pottery: Iriaeban-alabaster porcelain / DC20 Pottery: heating the plate reveals an intricate bear design in the center

Shou Porcelain is the real deal and the gold standard to which all other ceramics are compared. Often elaborately painted or inked with intricate designs and meticulous attention to detail.
Bone porcelain is an attempt by other nations to recreate the beautiful porcelain products being lucratively imported from Shou and is manufactured from Sembia, Calimshan, and the Western Heartlands. Is produced in higher numbers and the quality of the craftsmanship and decoration decides to what degree less than Shou originals they are worth.
Iriaeban-alabaster porcelain surpasses the Shou product in quality and appearance but is more expensive and less pervasive.


And the following items are pillows pulled from the earlier lists that I put side by side for comparison sake.
quote:


3;1d2;.1;a tiny satin pillow 2" square, embroidered with small yellow flowers, and stuffed with a pleasantly scented herb;1 sp

3;2d4;.6;a pillow stuffed with goose down in a wool case. The pillow is 2' by 2' and approximately 4 inches thick;3 gp

3;3d4;1;a pillow stuffed with feathers stuffed in a stained yellow linen case, embroidered with the stylized image of a diving hawk in red silk thread.;8 gp;10% as a novelty/100% known/20% cut open for feathers;DC Weaving: Narfellan warriors believe that sleeping on such a pillow would instill the killing instincts of a hunting hawk into him. If cut open, it contains feathers from several rare and magical beasts such as rocs, chimera, gryphons, and hippogiffs that might be of value to alchemists and magical researchers

3;2d4;12;silk embroidered down throw pillows with zigzag stripes arranged in colored step designs, primarily in gold and green, woven in the cotton case.;60 gp;;

1;4d6;40;a square pillow stuffed with down feathers in a silk case painted with the image of a winged baby kissing the cheek of a blushing gnome maid;560 gp;5% as novelty/20% known/100% known magic;DC Painting: Netherese influenced gnomish art of the Sword Coast. / Magic infused in pillow allows user to use Sleep spell on self 1/night (only at night, by command word, on willing command word user)

And, yes, a few magical items snuck onto the lists because the magic enhances the value of the art item and not the other way around. Here's a few more:

1;4d6;33;a folding steel knife with a whale bone handle etched with sailors heaving on a taut line stretched over a gunwhale;462 gp;5% as novelty/20% known/100% known magic;DC Carving: Illuskan scrimshaw art from the Sword Coast. / Magic infused in the knife prevents the blade from dulling

1;4d6;35;a silver handled brush with black enameled blunt wire bristles and whale bone backing etched with young girls braiding each others hair;490 gp;5% as novelty/20% known/100% known magic;DC Carving: Illuskan scrimshaw art from the Sword Coast. / Magic infused in the brush untangles hair of the brushed humanoid

Make the best use of the system that's there, then modify the mechanics that don't allow you to have the fun you are looking for.

Once I get this list completed I will be putting it into an excel spreadsheet to separate each section into what people find the most useful. I still have a lot to correct as many 3rd party provided content still has "wrought" and "hand-<insert craft style>" as value enhancements to the items. Wrought just means hammered and, unless it is made by magic, everything is hand made which means there is no added value unlike IRL where machine made/processed is the norm. I don't have valuations for the following, yet, but the descriptions can be plugged into your treasures for you to dole out.

EDIT: See Below

;;;a beige stone sarcophagus with carved figures on all sides. A richly dressed woman is the centerpiece of multiple scenes as she gives bread to the beggars on the street, shelter to the traveller in the rain, council to the troubled elders, mirth to the nobles' court, protection from brutish orcs to her handmaids, and kneeling acceptance in a ring as an executioner swings his axe down at her neck. The lid depicts a human army of those she helped in all the other scenes raise spears to her sainted apparition, and that army marching across a map filled with orc bodies.;;;DC Stonework: not an actual sarcophagus but a marble effigy used to rally people to right a wrongful death / DC History: Lady Serisa Khiilart, a well-respected Tethyrian noble-woman, captured and slain by orcs. In her memory, orcs are wiped out throughout the South in a genocidal slaughter in DR 1241

;;;a sturdy, single edged ivory dagger etched with a scene of an armored dwarf in battle with an unseen foe. The silver strengthening the spine of the blade is molded into the shape of an elf warrior standing vigilant while the disc-shaped guard is etched with a forested city.;;;DC Weaponcraft: the ivory work is Illefarnian but the metal enhancement is Amarindarian, a rare work of elven and dwarven collaboration / DC History: there were many of these weapons made by grateful elves to the dwarves and then returned in kind by the dwarves made from the teeth of the slain dragons because of the Slaughter of Sharrven DR -2770. There were over 200 made, each a unique pair of an elf and a dwarf as battle comrades.

;;;a long, ornately carved scepter of ivory with elaborate scrollwork within scrollwork giving an illusion of layers of carved material over each other instead of the single piece of bone. The head of the scepter has the carved likeness of a bearded dwarf on each of four sides wearing a single elaborate crown which wraps around all four facings and their beards curling to mingle into the shaft;;;DC Carving: the scrollwork is Ammarindarian but the ivory is dragon bone. DC Know History: the faces are dwarven kings of Ammarindari - Ammar I, Ammar II, Azkuldar I, and Sigurd. If both DCs are made: this dragon horn is from Fersosstylaxzar, the white worm that slew Azkuldar I and was in turn slain by Sigurd in single combat in -3372 DR.

;;;a carved and polished white stone bust of a young elven woman with a metal crown and her hair braided in a courtly fashion;;;DC History: Sissra, a half-elven princess of Marsember who died four hundred years ago. Her corpse was laid in a riverboat pyre with gold, gems, and magic arrayed about her. / DC Stonecraft: this piece of marble once formed part of a tomb effigy of Cormyran make

;;;a large bowl with eared handles what's wide body girth tapers to a shortened foot upon which it rests. Barred stripes adorn the bowl until meeting horizontal lines where the taper begins.;;;DC Pottery: a Talfir style likely from the short-lived Kingdom of Shavinar

;;;a ceramic fenestrated ceremonial stand with four narrow vertical windows in its elongated 6 inch base that tapers slightly to the bottom of the bowl. Pyramid studs in two bands are fashioned into the bowl's base for easy grip and the stand is richly decorated in ceremonial colors;;;DC Pottery: a Talfir style likely from the short-lived Kingdom of Shavinar

;;;a small ceramic figurine of a gravid female humanoid.;;;DC Pottery: the craft is too advanced for barbarian make, Netherese craft likely for trade / DC Know Religion: a fertility idol commonly buried beneath doorposts to ensure the fertility of the women of the household.

;;;an ochre ceramic flask 6 inches tall with smooth edges and thin body that complement the image on the base’s front face. Four wide leaves are set at an angle to a cross within a double circle separated by a band of pierced disks.;;;DC Pottery: ceramic of Shoon craftwork

;;;a ceramic bowl on a one ring-shaped base with a wishbone handle for easy scooping/pouring, and colored in shades of red and brown. A bulge a half inch beneath the lip is painted with laurel leaves imposed on a black band.;;;DC Pottery: craftsmanship showing the Netherese roots of the Duchy of Indoria

;;;a white slip milk bowl with a single wishbone handle and decorated with a hanging basket pattern in brown.;;;DC Pottery: craftsmanship is typical of the Duchy of Indoria

;;;a shallow bridge spouted bowl with a flattened base made of red slip ceramic. Six prongs protrude radially from the edge of the bowl’s mouth. One flat handle with three prongs sits opposite from the bowl’s thin bridge spout.;;;DC Pottery: craftsmanship is typical of the Duchy of Indoria

;;;a tall spindle flask tapered to small ring base and neck with everted rim. The long handle connects from top of the flask’s body to the neck just below the mouth fully enameled in a deep green hue.;;;DC Glasswork: craftsmanship showing the Netherese style in the Duchy of Indoria

;;;a large silver sheet mosaic-like array of birds, fish, and abstract decoration that whir together into a phantasmagorical array of art containing the fossilized imprints of many historic species. Great care that was put into the grooves and ridges of each shape so that no two fish or birds are exactly alike.;;;DC Metalcraft: the carving style is late Netherese but the subject places the origin in the Emirate of Torsil DR -300 to -200

;;;a two-tone glass flask of gold hue accented by a smart pair of purple glass decorations protrude from opposite sides of the bottle and flared at the neck into loops to form finger holes.;;;DC Glasswork: simple flourishes such as these purple designs are what made Shoon glassblowers stand out among ancient human craftsmen.

;;;an earthen glass with emerald-green flecks figurine of a turtle with simple nubs for feet and tail protruding from its small-shelled body, atop of which lies a stylized ring of white glass surrounding two bands and two dots of turquoise. The figurine’s head contains two turquoise glass eyes, a short-ridged nose, and a small mouth.;;;DC Glasswork: Shoon craftsmanship

;;;a lime plaster fresco with a variety of sea creatures painted in vivid colors and true-to-life pigmentation;;;DC Stonework: a colored relief in the style popular with the Shoon Dynasty

;;;two amber glass ewers similar in style, with similarly sized bodies, differently styled necks of the same height, mouths containing the same ringed decoration, and wide strap handles applied with the same supple rippling technique.;;;DC Glasswork: an Anaurian work made by the same craftsman

;;;a set of three spear mount shafts and a belt buckle gilded with vivid patterns of scrolls, rosettes, and fantastic animals. An interlaced double triangle is prominent on the pieces.;;;DC Know Nobility: ceremonial fixtures likely used by high-ranking military of the Shoon Dynasty / DC Metallurgy: Niello inlays of silver and lead alloy makes the fantastic contrasts on these service worthy accoutrements.

;;;an brass chain of quarter inch links, two links wide, meant to be worn around the head with a few hanging chains in the middle (front) that dangle five emerald green beads.;;;DC Jeweler: a headband of Ebenfarian make worn by married women with the color of the beads signifying the family colors

;;;a small silver cuff is connected to a silver stud by a three inch chain of fine links meant to be worn in the ear with additional hanging chains at either end that dangle pair of cobalt blue beads.;;;DC Jeweler: an ear cuff slave of Ebenfarian make used to signify a trained slave with the bead color denoting which family owned the slave

;;;a horseshoe shape of copper metal looks to be forged from a round bar and the ends expanding to twice the width appearing to be bracelets;;;DC Metalworking: Untheric Okpogho used by women to flaunt their husband's wealth prior to the death of their gods and used as a form of currency before the widespread acceptance of coins.

;;;a horseshoe shape of brass metal looks to be forged from a round bar and the ends expanding to twice the width appearing to be bracelets;;;DC Metalworking: Untheric Okpogho used by women to flaunt their husband's wealth prior to the death of their gods and used as a form of currency before the widespread acceptance of coins.

;;;a black cross shape of iron metal looks to be forged from two round bars and the ends expanding to twice the width;;;DC Metalworking: Untheric Cross used as a form of currency before the widespread acceptance of coins.

;;;a solid cast bird standing with wings crossed over the tail and the feathers all cleanly incised. It wears a double crown traces of gilding remains scattered over the surface. The figure is attached to a stone stand that appears to have been broken recently;;;DC Metalcraft: solid bronze casting Mulhorrandi

;;;a massive terracotta oil lamp of antiquity designed like a saucer or shallow bowl with its edges folded up to form a spout;;;DC Pottery: Mulhorandi craft style

this round jug is covered in cris-crossing red lines broken by three vertical clearings at four spots along the body and a basket handle arches above the mouth’s large opening, while a short flared spout rises from the front;;;Mulhorandi

;;;a small cylindrical-bodied ceramic beaker flaring sharply up to a wide ringed mouth with a dark exterior marked by the base’s small triangular designs filled with dotted patterns.;;;Mulhorandi

;;;this bronze idol is posed with arms crossed, holding a crook and flail. The body is largely undifferentiated with only simple detailing of the legs and feet. The statuette’s head and face are highly detailed, with the atef crown distinct in its unique shape.;;;Mulhorrandi

;;;an axe head comprised of a socketed section for the wooden shaft, and a triangular blade with two oval ‘eyes’ which are the apertures between the fortifying struts strengthening the duckbill-shaped blade. it is probable that it was designed for us use as a weapon (either practical or ceremonial) to be wielded against men rather than trees.;;;Mulhorandi

;;;a bronze bird with a long curved beak on a streamlined body with only the outlines of wings visible. The graceful contours of the neck flow into the body. Incised decoration replicates the structure of the bill, the eyes and the feathers and skin of the legs. The stylized mass of tail feathers was made separately and then inserted into the body.;;;Mulhorrandi / Ibis

;;;a head covering of long, straight, black hair weighted with shiny black and turquoise beads.

I had been looking at what people called "useless magic items" and been seeing a disturbing trend where these things are not just useless to PCs delving dungeons and fighting monsters but were also clearly detrimental to the players and meant to stick it to them in an adversarial way. Still, there were enough items that were useful to the wider world of NPCs and would clearly be part of a high magic setting. Inspired by those I created many such items. After making nearly two score of these I realized that if they were shared then how would people put them into the game. With a growing sense of revulsion I thought that these might be put into the same category as Magic Items and take the places of the real magic. Then I remembered that a few items of magic made it into the Art Objects table and figured these would match into the lists very well (certainly better than the magic tables). If you have any thoughts, criticisms, or suggestions then, please, post them here. Also, if you have any ideas of your own, even incomplete, then you should share them here as well.




Tosscobble's Shop Stall; This bundle of boards, poles, and canvasses is heavy and awkward but still tightly packed for as easy of movement as 50 lbs of long and stiff material can be. Putting the bundle on the ground and standing back, the user speaks a command word and the items unbundle and magically assemble in a flurry of activity to form a small hut raised on short stilts with a large window sized for small humanoids to use comfortably. Another command word disassembles the hut into individual components but the owner must manually pack the pieces into a portable bundle. Every tenday that the hut is assembled there is a 10% chance (+5% for every cumulative tenday) that the magic fades and the hut assembly is permanent. These items were the brainchild of Jesse Tosscobble when his brother Roscoe's sawmill suffered a glut of wood and had been stuck with payments in material of tarps from his last customer. The shop stalls are used by traveling halflings to help peddle their wares and services in new locations.

Halarahhan Bright Poster; The item appears to be a tin rod 6" long that tapers to a brass bead at one end. When a command word is spoken, the user may trace in the air and the tracings will appear as brightly colored lettering in the air.

Tracing in space takes great concentration (Perform (paint) or Profession (limner) DC10) and up to ten minutes to be intelligible to viewers with many corrections. These items did not originate in the capital of Halruaa but were widely used in that bustling city of commerce and convinced many travelers that Halarahh was their point of origin.

Mask of Repose; Thi semi-rigid mask of buffed hide covers the eyes and bridge of the nose. While worn, they induce a state of drowsiness in the subject, making it easier for them to fall asleep. This gives the subject a -2 Will save vs Sleep spells and sleep type effects, including bypassing elven immunities, but doesn't induce sleep on its own.

Broom of the Apprentice; This straw-brushed short-broom (30" high) will automatically sweep the floor of up to six contiguous rooms over the course of 1 hour, gathering the detritus in a neat pile in one corner. The broom only activates once each day. The broom may be given instructions for when to activate and where to begin, path to follow, and where to sweep the debris when done by holding the room and concentrating (requiring a Spellcraft check DC10).
Faint Conjuration; CL 3rd; Craft Wondrous Item, Unseen Servant; Value: 64gp 8sp (1day 20%, Limited 20%, Use1 90%, Skill 90%, 200%, 1000gp); Cost: 32gp 4sp + 3 xp. Weight: XXX lbs. Image: http://factorydirectcraft.com/catalog/products/1302_790_1567-7676-24_natural_straw_broom.html


Comb of Wailing; A comb made of bone with carved, concentric circles decorating the semi-circular handle. A tooth broken from the comb has a special resonance when held be an orc. Whenever he or she is in mortal danger, the comb will hum. If that orc dies, the comb will bleed. A typical comb has 40 teeth. These items are specialties of Luthic's matron priestesses. Prized among the she-orcs, these items let them know the fates of their mates and children before word reaches their homes allowing the wives and mothers to both grieve and seek alliances to overcome losses of status in the tribes.
Faint Divination; CL 3rd; Craft Wondrous Item, Status, Orc Blood; Value: 100 gp 8 sp (Race 70%, Limited 20%, Use3 30%, 40Chg 80%, 3000gp); Cost: 50gp 4sp + 5 xp. Weight: 0.1 lbs. Image: http://www.bbc.co.uk/staticarchive/66772acea74ea89742d5343631c7413b9b16f38b.jpg


Sharindlar's Darklight Ring; This silvery jewelry is of two crossed rings forged together. When worn the wearer's shadow turns the color of moonlight. This renders the shadow invisible in daylight or well lit areas, but conversely, it glows in darkness. These were items long crafted by the Thalornor of Sharindlar as symbols of love bonding between two who must part. The lit shadow in the darkness is a reminder to the wearer that they are not truly alone.
Faint Evocation; CL 1st; Craft Wondrous Item, Light, enhance Cha+4; Value: 120 gp (Limited 20%, Use2 60%, 1000gp); Cost: 60 gp + 5 xp. Weight: XXX lbs. Image: http://www.bilingual.com.au/store/pc/Shadow-Ring-p222.htm


Tear Ring; The etched hoof design of this oxidized brass ring is crudely craft but has a sculpted cuff style more in common with the fashions coming from the Old Empires on the Sea of Fallen Stars' Southern shores. Though a magic ring, it is a woman's ring that allows the wearer to cry on command, 5 times per day magically creating up to a gallon of salty water.
Faint conjuration; CL 3; Craft Wondrous Item, Create Water; Value: 108 gp (1day 20%, Use2 60%, GenderF 90%, Limited 50%, all classes 200%, 1000gp); Cost: 54 gp + 5 xp. Weight: 0.1 lbs. Image: http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446675769&site_refer=GGLPRADS001&cagpspn=pla&CAWELAID=500002830003473256&catargetid=500002830005596763&cadevice=c


Band of Broken Words; This ring has three bands of metal forged into a single piece. Each band has lettering and symbols that are recognizable as ancient alphabets of Dethek, Thorass, and Imasker. The wearer can only speak gibberish that interferes with all verbal abilities including spellcasting. The wearer also cannot understand any spoken language including his native tongue. No amount of linguistic ability can make sense of the random sounds; however, two wearers of these rings may freely communicate if they have a common language. The origin of these rings is unknown.
Faint Divination; CL 1st; Craft Wondrous Item, Message, Comprehend Language; Value: 270 gp (Limited 20%, Flawed2 60%, Use1 90%, 1000gp); Cost: XXX gp + XXX xp. Weight: XXX lbs. Image: http://boingboing.net/2008/09/05/help-design-a-cipher.html


Veteran's Band; A narrow gauge of metal wire is wound almost three times to form a ring with the raised ends crossing in wicked looking points. Grants a +2 Luck bonus to rolls to confirm critical hits. These rings were created by a cabal of Maskarran, or worshippers of Mask, during a particularly profitable time of chaos in Amn. Noble warriors paid dearly for these devices before heading into battle for righteous cause or fame resulting in many being lost in battle and found by scavengers of the dead.
Moderate Transmutation; CL 7th; Craft Wondrous Item, Luck Domain; Value: 6000 gp (Uncustomary 150%, 4000gp); Cost: XXX gp + XXX xp. Weight: XXX lbs. Image: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/shopsolid/item/14aw-r16/?s-id=borderless_recommend_item_en


Fury's Flame Ring; This obviously magical item appears to be a loop of pure flame and may be handled or worn comfortably like a ring. It has no special powers (providing no heat or light), but it looks impressive. Devils are oddly inquisitive about the ring and more likely to parley with the wearer, often showing a special interest in talking to the character. These items were made by the Lords of the Tempest, a religious order dedicated to Talos, but the members themselves do not wear them and their purpose is unknown.
Faint Conjuration; CL 1st; Craft Wondrous Item, Rebuke/Command Fire Creatures, Create Water; Value: 120 gp (Limited 20%, Use2 60%, 1000gp); Cost: 60 gp + 5 xp. Weight: 0.1 lbs. Image: http://www.123rf.com/photo_12349674_ring-of-fire-of-the-dragon-illustration-on-white-background.html


Ring of Hair Growth; Three thick strands of black lion’s mane are inserted amidst channels of twisted gold and topped with a decorative gold insignia. This ring will slowly return growing hair follicles to the scalp of the wearer over the period of several months. This restoration is not permanent and requires the ring to be continuously worn or the hair will wither and fall out in as many days as it took months to grow back.
Strong Conjuration; CL 13; Craft Wondrous Item, Regenerate; Value: 10820 gp (Limited 20%, Use3 30%, 200%, 91000gp); Cost: 5460 gp + 437 xp. Weight: 0.1 lbs. Image: http://moneysupermarket786.blogspot.com/2013/06/elephant-hair-ring.html


Ring of Watershed; The dome profile surface of the ring is raw and unfinished. Streaked through the black zirconium ring is a vein of natural copper that runs the circumference of the ring. The rings power is activated by an arcanist who wears it. The wearer instantly sheds all water that is currently wetting him. It only works on a thin film of specifically water but immersion overcomes the ring's power. The theory is that the ring links a portal of return to the elemental plane of water.
Faint conjuration; CL 3; Craft Wondrous Item, Create Water; Value: 16 gp 8 sp (1day 20%, Class 70%, Limited 20%, Use2 60%, 1000gp); Cost: 8gp4sp + 1 xp. Weight: 0.1 lbs. Image: http://www.titanium-buzz.com/black-zirconium-rock-natural-copper-ring.html


Ring of Speak Language +2 (lesser); A two part armor ring made from ornate copper filigree formed to wrap the wearer's finger comfortably. The main and knuckle bands are connected with copper plated steel chain. The chain joining the two pieces of the ring may be removed allowing two people to each wear a piece. The combined ring freely translates the oral languages of Netherese and Auld Thorassic but separately one translates from Netherese to Auld Thorassic and the other from Auld Thorassic to Netherese.
Faint illusion; CL 3; Craft Wondrous Item, ghost sound, speak language Auld Thorassic, speak language Netherese; Value: 72 gp (Limited 20%, Use1 90%, 400gp); Cost: 36 gp + 3 xp. Weight: 0.1 lbs. Image: http://www.ravynedge.unnaturalforces.com/Jewelry/Rings/ArAegisCopperA.html


Breeches of Fortitude;Sized for a small humanoid, this cloth garment has seen better days but is otherwise intact and durable. The short pants grant a minor boost to Fort saves (+1 enhancement) for 1d10 minutes up to 3/day (quick/free action) but also have a minor curse causing the wearer to enter a rage like a Barbarian 1 though this is a power that triggers at most 1/month. There is no way to resist the power when activated because it is the same magic that provides the Fort bonus and it takes several minutes to run its course. On a DC5 vs unmodified roll -1 for every time the breeches were activated without berserking.
Faint Abjuration; CL XXX; Craft Wondrous Item, Resistance Spell, Heal 2 ranks; Value: 41gp 5sp 8cp (1/day 20%, Command 90%, SizeS 80%, Limited 33%, RFlawed3 70%, all classes 200%, 1000gp); Cost: 20gp 2sp 9cp + 2 xp. Weight: 1 lbs. Image: http://www.osfcostumerentals.org/stock/Renaissance%20Elizabethan/Men%27s%20Wear/Renaissance%20Pants%20Breeches/slides/09017837%20Breeches%20Renaissance%20Distressed,%20beige%20homespun,%20W36.html


Jerkin of Fae Mummery;This jerkin was made for a small humanoid to wear, such as a gnome or halfling. Grants a +15 competence bonus to Use Magic Device to emulate being an elf or an elven high mage. There is no bonus to emulating a wizard, though.
Faint Divination; CL 3rd; Craft Wondrous Item, Misdirection, Use Magic Deice 5 Ranks; Value: 3600 gp (SizeS 80%, Limited 20%, 22500gp); Cost: 1800gp + 72 xp. Weight: 1 lbs. Image: http://garb4guys.blogspot.com/2012/05/leather-jerkin-pattern-layout.html


Blath's Iron Cat;A cunningly articulated clockwork kitten that, when wound, behaves in most respects like a normal cat of a few months age including rambunctious play and "sleeping," for 10 minutes. If ever wound more than once per day, the clockwork kitten will, if possible, desert its the one who wound it by simply attempting to "run away. If it's unable to leave its owner on the day it is overwound, its behavior reverts to normal. The winding activates a power that summons the spirit of a deceased kitten to power the device.
Faint Necromancy; CL 1st; Craft Wondrous Item, Summon Undead I; Value: 18gp 2sp 4cp (1day 20%, Limited 20%, RFlawed1 95%, Time1 80%, Use3 30%, all classes 200%, 1000gp); Cost: 9gp 1sp 2cp + 1 xp. Weight: 0.5 lbs. Image: http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/x/robot-kitten-crouching-6759043.jpg


Mellin's Mouse Mimic;A tiny clockwork mouse that awakens at the touch of a hand. Upon activation, this mouse does everything a regular mouse does: scurries across the floor, cleans itself, and squeaks. It never eats, drinks, nor strays too far from the person that activated it. While the mouse is not under the direct control of the activator, it will attempt to copy what the activator is doing, broadly speaking. For example, if a rogue activated it and was moving silently, the mouse would follow suit and also move silently, if the rogue was sleeping, so would the mouse.
Faint Enchantment; CL 5th; Craft Wondrous Item, Telepathic Bond; Value: 240 gp (Limited 20%, Use2 60%, all classes 200%, 1000gp); Cost: 120 gp + 10 xp. Weight: 0.1 lbs. Image: https://www.flickr.com/photos/27774074@N02/8251527836/



If, as the DMG suggests, items that have versatile applications are effects that are desirable beyond the base costs then those items must receive markups. Conversely, items that are limited, narrow in scope of abilities, and/or have undesirable or non-tactical/social gaming effects should have markdowns. What are the cost reductions as I saw fit to implement them?

quote:
Limited means that it covers a severely restricted form of the power invoked like a duration spell effect that is nerfed from providing bonuses to all three saves to providing a bonus for only a single save or a skill enhancement that is only good for a very limited application of that skill instead of for all applications of that skill. The percentage should be of an estimated reduction in all USEFUL applications instead of esoteric or hypothetical. For items of an extremely narrow focus the lowest percentage allowed is one fifth (20%). VARIABLE

Align means that a character of a specific alignment is required to properly operate the item. 70%.
Class means that a character of a specific class is required to properly operate the item. 70%.
Race means that a character of a specific race is required to properly operate the item. 70%.
Skill means the user needs to have a skill of a certain number of ranks in order to use the item. 90%
Command means that a password is required to activate or otherwise fully use the item. 90%
Gender(F/M/N/H) means the character has to be of a specific anatomical reproductive set. 90%

Usefulness has multiple levels based upon the effect it has in the game
- Use1 has limited applications and may function to resolve situations outside of mechanical bounds or have a roll to succeed. 90%
- Use2 has limited applications and may support situations outside of mechanical bounds. 60%
- Use3 has no applications or function to resolve situations and always fails any required action. 30%

Spell and spell-like abilities have different levels
- 1day means the abilit(y/ies) or effect equivalents are limited to once a day. 20%
- 2day means the abilit(y/ies) or 1.5x effect equivalents are limited to twice a day. 40%
- 3day means the abilit(y/ies) or 3x effect equivalents are limited to thrice a day. 60%
- 4day means the abilit(y/ies) or 5x effect equivalents are limited to four times a day. 80%

Size is a restriction that has 5 different levels
- SizeT means that a character of a tiny or smaller size is required to properly operate the item. 70%.
- SizeS means that a character of a small size is required to properly operate the item. 80%.
- SizeM means that a character of a medium size is required to properly operate the item. 100%.
- SizeL means that a character of a large size is required to properly operate the item. 80%.
- SizeH means that a character of a huge or larger size is required to properly operate the item. 70%.

Flawed has 3 different levels:
- RFlawed1 means that the item rarely does something annoying but is essentially harmless to the user. 95%
- RFlawed2 means that the item rarely does something that is a hindrance to the wishes of the user. 85%
- RFlawed3 means that the item rarely does something dangerous or harmful to the user. 70%
- IFlawed1 means that the item intermittently does something annoying but is essentially harmless to the user. 90%
- IFlawed2 means that the item intermittently does something that is a hindrance to the wishes of the user. 75%
- IFlawed3 means that the item intermittently does something dangerous or harmful to the user. 50%
- Flawed1 means that the item always does something annoying but is essentially harmless to the user. 85%
- Flawed2 means that the item always does something that is a hindrance to the wishes of the user. 60%
- Flawed3 means that the item always does something dangerous or harmful to the user. 25%

Onerous requirements to activate have several levels:
- Time1 means a character requires actions occupying his time for up to a minute to use the item. 80%
- Time2 means a character requires actions occupying his time for up to an hour to use the item. 60%
- Time3 means a character requires actions occupying his time for up to a day or more to use the item. 30%

Make the best use of the system that's there, then modify the mechanics that don't allow you to have the fun you are looking for.

Fellow scribes, I have endeavored to create a list that will allow flexibility of play to be as simple to place the objects of art into your games with an amount of layering to allow use in superficial dungeon crawls to in-depth world simulation. I have broken up the entries into coded sections that may be used or discarded. They are as follows:


  • Order#: A sequential numerical order with the most potentially valuable items associated with higher numbers and least potentially valuable items at the top of the list with the lower numbers.

  • Value SP: This is an average value of the object in silver coins. In lieu of generating a value you may use this number instead.

  • Die: the dice needed to generate a random value for the treasure.

  • Multiplier GP: The random die-roll-generated number is multiplied by this amount in gold coins. Enough said.

  • Description: A verbatim "this is what you see" for the object that can be plugged into the flavor box of your adventure text.

  • Secrets of the Object: OPTIONAL - what skills are necessary to unlock the hidden value of the object and what lore is gleaned from divining these secrets. Yes, the numbers are high and the fields of knowledge tilted towards the esoteric. This is what sages are for inside of games and the appraisal of objects like these can be excuse enough to have the PCs come into contact with experts and nobles of all stripes. For dungeon crawlers that couldn't give a rip, just dole out the pertinent information from this section and ignore the rest.

  • Valuation: OPTIONAL - how much the item is worth based upon what is known about the item. As is means nothing more is known than the basic description. Part known, half known, mostly known, and if known are all measures of how many secrets there are to the items and what value each successive secret unlocks. The percentage is a total for the number of secrets and are not added together (i.e., 1% as is/10% part known/60% mostly known/100% if known with the PC discovering 2 secrets means the value of the items is 60% for mostly known, not 71% for as is + part known + mostly known). This valuation is then multiplied against the value for what the characters can pawn off the object for in silver coins.

  • Inspiration: What follows are the websites and pages that have a direct or indirect inspiration for the object as I have delineated with the aforementioned entries.



The craft & profession skills for valuation I kept vague because some games are very specific with their skill sets to extremely general. I have grouped the skill checks into focus areas that are guidelines towards the right skills. For example, Metalcraft is any skill having to do with working metal like ore-mining, blacksmithing, metal refining, smelting, goldsmithing, or any other skill where the PC bangs, melts, heats, welds, twists, & forges metal. If your PCs have the skills that are close enough then they should count.

In many cases, knowing the language is necessary to unlock some or all of the secrets. These valuations are started with an alphabet followed by the language needed to be known. If your games use "common" then this is moot since common would be used (a rant for another day). Again, GMs may handle as you see fit.

Due to character count constraints I am posting the list up in increments of 200 (or less if the end of the list gets too wordy). This list is by no means set in stone and is open to criticisms & suggestions.

Make the best use of the system that's there, then modify the mechanics that don't allow you to have the fun you are looking for.
