100 Valuable(ish) Containers for Treasure

Watermarked PDF

Players will often come across treasure after slaying whatever monsters they have encountered. This treasure can be detailed and can have value. But how about what is used to store the treasure itself? If the valuables are not simply rolling around loose on the floor, they will likely be stored in something, and that something may have value in itself.

This is a list of 100 different containers and other items that have been used to store valuables in. All have value; in some cases this value is not very much though. Some have hidden secrets for players to find whilst others are far more straightforward. The containers are aimed at traditional fantasy games, but they could easily be used in others.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

Here is a sample result:

Traveller's Chest - The chest has been covered in an unusual scaled hide (alligator skin) which has been attached to the wood using large brass rivets. When the trunk is open, it can be seen that it is made of comparatively ordinary oak, despite its covering. Thick brass strapping reinforces the trunk and a brass hasp and staple with a good steel padlock keep it fastened. The chest is about two feet square by a foot and a half high. Value: Chest 15 gp; Padlock 25 gp with key, 8 gp otherwise

One page is the cover, one the front matter and slightly more than one is the introduction and ads.

My guess is #40 Chest. Terry Pratchett. The Color of Magic.

Yes, that one is based on the Luggage, the universe's most homicidal travel accessory.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
