For the past few weeks I’ve been working on a book called Jungle Goodies with Matt Sanders of Dwarves in a Trenchcoat (who you may remember from his guest post back in June). What started out as a simple book of trinkets to tie in to Tomb of Annihilation has evolved into a whole host of strange and wonderful random tables. I’m really proud of it, and I can’t wait to release it this week.
In fact, I really can’t wait, so today you’re getting a sneak peak of the first table in the book – art objects!
|1||25 GP||…figurine is carved from malachite, and depicts a hydra. Two of its heads had been broken off and are nowhere to be seen.|
|2||25 GP||…silver belt buckle would be perfectly unremarkable if the prong and bar weren’t made from the bones of a human finger.|
|3||250 GP||…delicate ceramic vase is inlaid with bones and studs of amber containing ancient insects.|
|4||250 GP||…oil painting is framed in brass and depicts a pair of howler monkeys wearing helmets and wielding jagged obsidian swords.|
|5||750 GP||…beautiful circlet is made from dragonbone that has somehow been twisted into a Mobius strip and inlaid with mithril.|
|6||750 GP||…rough crystal figurine depicts a naga. Its eyes are tiny uncut emeralds.|
|7||2,500 GP||…tapestry is 30’ long, and depicts a volcanic eruption and the subsequent efforts to stem the tide of lava that were ultimately fruitless.|
|8||2,500 GP||…glass jewelry box gives off a faint magical aura. When something is placed inside it, the glass fogs up so that the box’s contents cannot be seen.|
This obviously isn’t the full thing. Jungle Goodies contains 15 tables of trinkets, people, places, and weird stuff to drop into your games – whether your players are fighting their way through Chult or not.
It releases on DMs Guild on Thursday 19th October, and you’re going to love it.
