The Jester Dragon's Trove of Trinkets


Welcome to the “Jester Dragon’s Trove of Trinkets,” the latest Skirmisher Publishing sourcebook to bear the name of our enigmatic mascot!

Trinkets can be found just about anywhere and might even be generated randomly during the process of character creation. This book contains 100 items that can be used for such purposes, along with customization options that include Minor Magical Effects and Hidden Contents.

Like all of the other Jester Dragon’s Guides or the entries in the affiliated “100 Oddities” series, this book can be used in multiple ways, from generating single mundane or minor magical items to creating hooks for entire adventures. Possibilities include:

* Anytime you are running or setting up for a game you can use this book to quickly generate a minor item for purposes that could include being found in a picked pocket, the forgotten corner of a treasure vault, between the belly scales of a slain monster, beneath the false bottom of a trunk in the den of a local crime lord, lying forgotten on a shelf in an arch-mage’s library, or in the pocket of the unknown corpse floating downriver.

* Two or more trinkets can be used in conjunction with each other — or with entries from any “100 Oddities” sourcebooks you might have — to generate adventure hooks.

* If you play 5th Edition D&D then, if desired, you can simply use the main table in this book in place of or in addition to the Trinkets table in the Player’s Handbook

In the video that appears below the players all roll Trinkets for their new 5th Edition characters before beginning the adventure! There were actually some pretty interesting results that will have bearing on their upcoming sessions. 


In honor of the 2020 Asian Lunar New Year, Skirmisher Publishing is proud to announce the release of “Jinshu Shu, the Metal Rat: A Monster for 5th Edition”! It is available at DriveThruRPG by itself for 99¢ or as part of a 40% off Chinese Zodiac Bundle that contains three other monsters, the Earth Dog, Earth Pig, and Fire Rooster. This title includes a detailed description for the Metal Rat, stat blocks for both individual monsters of this sort and swarms of them, and special variant rules affecting the conjuration of such creatures. Happy Asian Lunar New Year! We very much hope you enjoy the Metal Rat and our other Chinese Zodiac monsters.

This is the perfect companion to my adventure! Most of my players are loot driven criminals of some description. From the first page I'm delighted with ideas that fit well into our story and could be adapted to many settings. [...]

At first glance, many of these things seem useless, flavorful bits and bobs. But there are hidden depths to this collection, with obscured meaning but seeds of something more. Im also a sucker for this art style and love the weird entries in this table [...]

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.
