Treasure Tables: Hidden Gems

Christina Rossetti Goblin MarketIf there’s one thing guaranteed to catch an adventurer’s eye, it’s a precious stone. If magpie tendencies seem to be running rampant, the following can be used to add a little variety to your loot or even as inspiration for a story hook. The value of the items can vary at the DM’s discretion but are suitable replacements for a handful of coinage or minor quest reward, although they could be worth more to the right person. You can roll randomly for a result below using the handy number provided with each entry to figure out your result on a d20. You can also pick one that works for the area in which your characters currently linger.

1. A fist-sized fire opal that seems to glow with an internal light, illuminating the cloud-like formations within. (Fire Opal)

2. A small pile of silver crystal shapes with a half-melted look. (Gallium)

3. An unremarkable gray stone covered in myriad tiny pink growths, ranging in shape from rough textured flowers to near-perfect spheres. (Rhodochrosite)

4. A simple quartz crystal with a series of emerald green and brown straws extending from within its central structure. (Tourmaline in Quartz)

    I can(and will) roll from this table and the party can find item in the alchemist’s lab I detailed with your other treasure table. I see the crystals described having varied uses. Love it
