EXPANDED ART TREASURES

Dungeon Mastering Index

Treasure is one of the major exciting components of a D&D game, and it's easy to impress the players when the characters are lower level and relatively poor.  But familiarity breeds contempt all around.  After a while, the party is likely to yawn in the direction of the same old silver chalice with lapis lazuli gems - and the DM is, as well.  The group might also get bored with the same old boots, belt, and bracers.  What about a chemise of charisma +1 worn under clothing in place of a belt?   Or what if the beloved of an NPC gives him a perfumed favor of guidance stitched with her initials, activated when he whispers her name into it?  What happens when the PCs find and read a dusty old copy of a local history, only to find out about an old series of mines the town seems to have forgotten?  Or when the PCs further discover that a long-lost uncle of one PC wrote it? 

Sometimes you need to look in unlikely places to make treasure truly thrilling again and although the DMG is filled with items of all descriptions, they're the same items you've been looking at for quite some time.  The chart below can give ideas for some less common articles and can serve as the basis for new magical items, as well.  Depending on the types of materials and skills used, the DM will set the market value of the item and decide if the item is going to deliver any plot hooks.  Extremely valuable and well crafted pieces might be more likely to have a maker's mark or signature, which could lead to NPCs and stories. There is a table at the end with suggestions for possible effects of finding, owning, and using items that stand out, whether they're magical or not.
