d100 Unwanted things from the back of magic shop

Been playing Temple of Elemental Evil game which is one of several things that got me back into DnD and was some influence on my DnD game. Im dreaming up what creatures a domesticated in dungeons - giant crayfish would be great for fishmen clearing out dungeons and thy would probably food them.

Most magic shops are pretty old and accumulate all kinds of curios and trinkets. Some might be keystones to adventure others enigmatic table weights ayt best.

  1. Unwanted? I'd gladly have a half dozen or more of those things in real life.

  2. Oh! Some really fun stuff here! A good mix of weird, creepy and funny.
    Thanks for making it!

  3. How long does it take you to come up with 100 items for such a list? They're always great from 01 to 100.

    1. sorry so late

      when m gaming more i write lots on way to work on bus and finish in evening - some only take an hour or two some take 4 or more
      i probably write more when i get feedback or read inspiring stuff from other bloggers

    2. it is a skill tht can be trained - started as d20 then d50 then 100

      d1000 very hard to keep track of what has been said

    3. a list taking about 2 hours
      more expanded encounters take a few days
      about 1% take weeks on an off


I love and welcome feedback but not spambots
Good feedback and suggestions inspire me to write more
