Common Dungeon Detritus

Dungeon Detritus is crap you find in empty rooms and boring corridors. Common stuff is mostly not valuable but beginner murder hobos might find a few scraps. This will be followed by exotic types that will be weirder and dangerous. This could also be things you find in a fishing hole, trench or garbage heap. The exotic list also serves as red herrings. Players will try to rationalise them and think must be logical explanation. Poor poor players.

Ive done some similar stuff but second table a bit more fancy for ocasional find to make adventurers wonder or for deeper dungeons
