100 Pieces of Flotsam and Jetsam To Find On A Beach

100 Pieces of Flotsam and Jetsam To Find On A BeachShould the characters at some point be beside the water, whether a sea, ocean or even a large lake, they may find things that have been cast up on the beach, whether rocky or otherwise. Such items may be the typical detritus that is lost from ships, dropped in the water or simply found beside the sea. It may also include items that are valuable or dangerous.

This is a list of 100 different things that could be found by characters beside the water, or perhaps even be bobbing in the water itself. These can be used as simple dressing for a location or perhaps as a source of adventure hooks. Some are clearly useful; others not so much.

The supplement is also available in a Pathfinder version. You do not need to buy both.

To use the list, either roll d100 for a random result or select appropriate ones manually.

Here are some sample results:

31. A jewelled eye patch, sewn with pearls round the edge and a ruby in the centre. It’s worth 300 gp.
32. A small stone, with a naturally-formed hole in the centre of it. A suitable skill check will reveal that these are called hagstones, and they are often thought of as the bane of faerie magics. If someone looks through the centre of the stone, it automatically allows them to see through illusions cast by fey creatures, and by those related to such.
33. Three large, white rocks. Barely above the low-tide line, closer inspection reveals that they’re ballast stones typically carried by ships. When the ships take on too much water, the ballast is thrown overboard. There are no ships nearby that would require rocks so large, though.
