This 6-inch-tall gold figurine is of a monkey standing up on its hind legs with its tail up in the air. The detachable gold collar around its neck has a variety of semiprecious round-cut gemstones encrusting it. The monkey's wide-eyed expression indicates surprise.
The bottom of the figurine has this word etched onto it: Biggles.
Price: 400 gp

My brand spanking new 4e D&D campaign begins tomorrow, and I'm stoked! It's like no other D&D campaign we've run before........
It's set in the modern day.
It's exactly 30 sessions long. No more, and no less. After each session, the characters gain a level. High-speed D&D!
And at the end of it, the world ends.
You can read more about Endday and get a glimpse of my campaign plans over on my main blog. I'm considering posting the campaign write-ups here as the game progresses. We'll see.
Roll on tomorrow :D

Crafted from both silver and gold, this ornate hand mirror has a handle that twists off at the base of the mirror to reveal that the handle is hollow. A scroll of about 6 inches square could fit into this area, and, in fact, a piece of yellowing parchment is inside the handle already. The parchment has a crudely or hastily drawn map (probably not to scale) on it that appears to show an entrance to a building and details a path through it to a specific room toward its rear.
The mirror's frame and back features an etched leaf motif, and the tip of the handle is a fully formed gold cordate leaf. Delicate silver veins in the leaf draw attention to the high level of art involved in creating this particular mirror. This leaf is also sketched on the map.
Optional: Player characters might identify...

Each of the two clear, round-shafted crystal hairsticks are about six inches long. Delicate gold wire wraps around the crystal starting an inch away from the pointed end to the very tip of the hairstick, where it forms a loop at the top of the hairstick. The end of the wire near the pointed part of the hairstick appears as if it melds into the crystal. Three thin gold cable chains of varying lengths drop from the loop, and each chain ends in a small faceted amethyst bead surrounded on either side by smaller faceted clear crystal beads.
Price: 200 gp

Formed primarily from pewter, this simple tankard has a blackened bone handle that is carved into the shape of a pouncing panther. Round-cut garnets serve as the panther's eyes.
Optional: A sticky, brown substance with unusual flecks of silver remains in the bottom of the tankard.
Knowledge Check (Nature, Religion)
Easy DC: The substance is a honey-based drink.
Moderate DC: Coastal halflings use honey and sea berries to create this thick drink. The berries are known to have seeds that resemble small beads of silver, which is how the sea plant gained the name "silverberry" among these halflings.
Hard DC: Sometimes gnome skulks imbibe the beverage during coming-of-age ceremonies. Those coming of age must first steal the beverage.
Price: 100 gp...

Or maybe you didn't ask. I'm asking for you, in that case. Even as I type this, I'm wondering how I can use this blog.
I think I have an idea.
I'll do what I was doing over at my LiveJournal site awhile back and post a new nonmagic item each day. Just a trinket or something. You can use it to add color to whatever treasure your PCs pick up. Yeah, that's what I'll do. Here's the format I intend to use:
You can (hopefully) drop these items into the place of that gem or art object that's listed in published adventures. Sometimes memorable gems and art objects lead to some interesting bits of roleplaying around the table. :)
*Optional Content: I'm including knowledge checks from time to time to make the item even more interesting. Though I would advise you to use...

Alors que les fichiers du Gameday viennent juste de tomber, l'organisation se met en route.
Encore 3 semaines d'intenses préparations et de tests avant de se jeter dans l'arene, en effet, le Monde du Jeu est l'événement JDR de l'année 2009.
L'année passée des centaines de joueurs ont pu s'initier à D&D4. Cette année, on passe à l'étape supérieur en faisant découvrir l'envers du décor. Les joueurs apprendront comment créer leurs aventures et eventuellement comment la "maitriser". Une expérience unique qui va nous permettre, je l'espere, de former de nouveaux MJs ! Cette expérience aura certainement lieu sur le stand du GROG.
Au programme 3h de jeu, 2 rencontres et les joueurs repartiront avec leurs figurines et leurs de persos alors que les MJ repartiront avec les monstres...
