In The Pockets of a Rich Man

This begs the question: What about the guys in the middle? Of course the answer is use this and the common mans table. I'd usually give 1d3 things per corpse/person or one thing per pick pocket success. If I rolled three for a shopkeeper or scholar they would probably have the third item as a conspicuous status symbol from here and would flash it about more. Some tables changed more than others. Some items upgraded to posh versions. Spotted typos on original common man table but it is here

thanks to Mike West for spotting lotsa mistakes


  1. "Trinkets" 88-90 is blank. While we can take that as "GM's choice", did something get left off from your original list?

    1. thank you will amend - a few repeats or similar ones i need to fix too - multi d100 are tricky like that so i appreciate editorial support

  2. Wow, how long did that take you to make? Very cool.
