Drop the Loot!

I woke up at about one in the morning the other, er, morning with this thing in my head. I tried to dismiss it and go back to sleep but it occupied my thoughts for another two hours, damned thing. Assuming that it is some sort of Lovecraftian mental virus I've put it on paper so it can infect your minds too.

I have no idea if it works or if it's any good; I may test it on Friday in what will probably be my group's last Lost Mine of Phandelver Trolltooth Pass session. If you use it, let me know how it goes.

  1. I love it! Treasure type and value all in one fun illustrated chart. I'd let the players do the die dropping for increased participation.

  2. Thanks Edward! I plan to let the players do the dropping myself when I test it on Friday. Let me know how you get on!

  3. Warren Abox left a comment but I deleted it by mistake. This is what it said:

    "This is brilliant! It's so elegant the way this straddles the line between treasure generator and mini-game for the DM. And it simplifies the generation of complex treasures with just the throw of the dice. And AND the art is so evocative and inspirational...wow."

    Thank you Warren!
