Trinkets

Random Roll: d100 = 5
A brass ring that never tarnishes
Trinkets are fun little items that add to a player's backstory, or are interesting items that players find along their journey. If your DM allows you to add a trinket to your starting items, try to think of an good reason for how your character acquired the item. A trinket can be...
  • something the character found in their youth
  • what remains of a collection that the character had in his past
  • a cherished gift from a former lover
  • something a parent gave to the character before they passed
  • an award for a task done well
  • a remembrance from a mentor
  • the first item that a rogue stole.
