Underdark loot

Post by Pigasus » Wed Mar 07, 2018 4:28 pm


Hirelings and NPC adventurers require a combined fee of 5,000 crowns.


Crystals/records: each empty crystal can sell for roughly 400-500 crowns. Full crystals are worth much more.

- 7x empty psicrystals: octahedrons, icosahedrons and dodecahedrons in blue, teal and reddish-purple. Made of gems that naturally produce weak psionic waveforms. Since no one in the party knows how to encode psicrystals, these are only useful as decorations.
- 2x psicrystal batteries: icosahedrons, blue-purple, same kind of gems, they store generic energy that a psion can tap into, must be mentally recharged after use
- 3x personal psicrystals: 2 octahedrons, 1 dodecahedron: different colors, store the personality fragments, memories and one or two mental powers of their former users, which have all been illithids. CLAIMED BY ALIM
- 4x crystal libraries: collections of mental information recorded as memories and virtual writing by illithids. CLAIMED BY ALIM
- 9x stone tablets and 12x magically preserved books written in the illithid qualith language. CLAIMED BY ALIM

Precious metals and minerals

- 8,193 crowns worth of gold and platinum bars, Dol-Druuni and Dwarven in origin
- 2,456 crowns of gold and silver coins of Vuulari origin
- 567 crowns worth of ancient gold coins from Amas'kyaa
- 2,000 crowns worth of unworked semi-precious minerals
- Enough adamantium to make 1 medium weapon

Special weapons and armor: market values to be determined

- 2x arming swords with small colorless crystals embedded in the crossguard and fuller. Enhanced sharpness and strength when wielded by a sentient creature. Even more enhanced sharpness and strength when wielded by psionic creature.
- 3x silver greatswords, made by Githyanki or replicated from Githyanki tech. The swords are solid but seem to shimmer and flow like quicksilver when wielded. The blade predicts the wielder's intended swing and shifts momentum accordingly, greatly increasing power and control. Can sever an astral traveler's silver cord, killing their body.
- 1x large metal kite shield set with a psicrystal. When wielded by sentient creature, shield generates a force barrier that moderately boosts its strength and defense. This telekinesis-based power also makes the shield lighter than a plain metal kite shield of that size
- 1x spear fully made of unrecognizable alloy. When wielded by a sentient creature of above average willpower, the spear can quickly change size up to three times or one third of its original length OR width. The change is extremely fast and can be used as an attack. It is also supernaturally light, strong and flexible.
- 1x metal vambrace made of unrecognizable alloy. When worn, it can be commanded to create a buckler shield made of force, absorbing physical or low level magical attacks. Or, it can be commanded to create a 2 foot long force blade. The shield and the blade can only be used for 15 consecutive minutes before requiring 6 hours to recharge.
- 2x illithid helmets, designed to go over their bulbous, alien heads, with flexible sheaths for tentacles and a hollow space for their beak. Made of unknown alloy. Allows wearers to detect surface thoughts within 60 feet and the presence of minds within 180 feet. Psions can use helmets to dominate 1-4 minds, depending on their strength. Decent protection against physical and mental attacks. Completely negates light-based attacks.
- 1x flexible 3.5 foot cord ending with a hook-like spike and lined with partially decayed rubbery suction cups. When activated by a mental command, the cord can take on any shape and used as a weapon. The 'handle' end looks like it was made to slip over a tentacle.

Other items: market values to be determined

1x Living tattoo: a parasitic black fluid that enters the body, spreads out, turns into a tattooed sigil and allows the victim to be controlled by the tattoo's creator. Can be reprogrammed by a psion to provide a single ability or regeneration buff instead of being a parasite. Tattoo is permanent, killing the body it's removed from.
1x Celestial map: a small mechanism with multiple moving parts. Can track the movement of nearby stars and planets. Can project an image of the local solar-system as an illusion-like hologram, a 30ft diameter sphere.
3x pen-like devices with four tips each. When filled up with ink and dragged across the page by a sentient being, the pens write down the thoughts and emotions of the writer in the illithid language of qualith.
3x vials of goliath scorpion venom. This neurotoxin paralyzes, then kills most organic lifeforms if introduced into their bodies. Has potential undiscovered properties as a rare alchemical reagent
4x sets of creepy medical tools including scalpels, bone saws, head size measurers and others. The sets are possibly incomplete. Made from unknown alloy.
1x sphere of solidified amber-like substance, 4 inches in diameter. Frozen inside it is a cluster of what appears to be brain tissues.
5x sculptures made of bone, teeth and mineralized organic tissues. The sculptures are non-representational but appear to have no practical function besides that of artwork. They range from cat-sized to horse-sized and resemble abstract organisms made via painful fleshcrafting from mutated thralls
1x human-sized sculpture that resembles a tree-like nervous system coming out of a central brain-like structure. Made from various organic and inorganic minerals.
10x large metal parts from some possibly massive machine. The parts don't do anything and are made from an unknown alloy. The type of machine they were part of can't be inferred by looking at the parts, but it must have been the size of a ship. Parts range from 2x2 feet to 15x15 feet and are very heavy.

Welkith claims:
1x psicrystal battery
1x Arming sword
1x Githyanki sword
1x large metal kite shield
1x illithid helmet
1x creepy medical tools
1x vial of goliath scorpion venom

Sizable chunks of unknown metal parts

Also his percentage of precious metals and minerals, dependin on how many PC's it winds up being divided between after paying NPC/Hirelings

(Welkith will take as much unclaimed stuff he can feasibly liquidate for cold hard cash beyond this, he'll specifically claim the Vambrace if nobody else steps forward to do so.)

Zol Kreel already claimed one githyanki sword and will literally kill for that spear. If anyone else wants it, pm me to set up pvp.

He'll limit himself on cash to whatever was agreed on for hirelings. can call him just a Henchman+.

Marius will take whatever coins/bars remain after everyone is given a cut, as well as the celestial map and the adamantium for the weapon. The coins are his last priority.

Any bits and bobs not claimed by anyone else he'll have transported to the Royal Church/Stronghold/wherever the church wants him to send them, but by all means that is only what literally nobody else wants.

Eliya's only interested in the psicrystal batteries, living tattoo (if no one is interested in it) and recouping what she can of her investment in the mission, after everyone's already gotten their cut.
