Treasures & Trinkets: Treasure Hoards #2 (5e)

Your PCs are deep in the dungeon and have just defeated a terrifying dragon! As they bandage their wounds, and ready their fallen friend’s bodies for return to the surface, they look around and ask “So what treasure’s in the dragon’s hoard, anyway?” At that point, unless the GM has prepared a detailed list of treasure, the PCs get (possibly) literally tons of coins and some generic magic items. (After all, most GMs have better things to do with their prep time than generate descriptions for stuff the PCs will likely sell).

Treasures & Trinkets: Treasure Hoards #2 banishes these problems by providing a veritable hoard of 25 pre-generated, richly detailed treasure hoards for challenges 5-10 ready to insert into almost any GM’s campaign.

Treasures & Trinkets: Treasure Hoards #2 is designed for use with the 5th edition of the world’s most popular roleplaying game.

Sample Treasure Hoard

  • Coinage: 972 cp, 9,055 sp, 1,477 gp, 114 pp.
  • Alexandrite: An elongated pear-shaped cut with triangular facets gives this transparent, dark green stone an exotic appearance (worth 500 gp; DC 15 Intelligence check identifies and values).
  • Damaged Puzzle Box: Over 100 tiny panels cover this tiny box; each can be manipulated to slide in any of four directions, presumably to open the lock. One side has been forced open and the contents removed, but the craftsmanship is still remarkable (worth 250 gp; DC 20 Intelligence check values).
  • Medal: A heavy bronze disc half again the diameter of a silver coin, bearing the profile of a man with patrician features and a formal wig who is bracketed by two curves of laurel branch, trails a pair of tattered pieces of green and blue ribbon attached to a small stud on the top of the medal. An inscription on the back reads “For Honour and Duty” (worth 100 gp; DC 10 Intelligence check values).
  • Vial of Holy Water (4): Silvery water fills these crystal vials. They each have a beaten copper stopper (each worth 25 gp).
  • Amulet of the Planes: This bejewelled circular amulet is set with a large crimson ruby in the centre flanked by two violet amethysts.


Praise for Treasure Hoards #2

“This could come in handy when planning adventures, or when the party decides to go somewhere unexpected and suddenly demand to know what they\’ve found. Some of the items might even spawn plotlines of their own…”
