- Jacket made of seal fur (120gp) - Will keep wearer warm and dry in wet weather. Selkies will not be your friend and may wish to do something about this fashion choice.
- Knotted rope made from giant spider silk (100gp) - This 40' rope (50' unknotted) is three times as strong as normal rope and gives a -4 penalty (-20%) to escape or breaking attempts. Weighs 4lb.
- Leather bound small box containing common remedies against poison (100gp) - This gives a +3 bonus on checks to treat poisoning or a new saving throw at +3 against an afflicted victim who isn't already dead yet. Weighs 3lbs and has 1d6+4 uses.

- Ornate brass signet ring in coiled serpent design with two freshwater pearls for eyes (90gp) - This ring has a poison pill compartment (empty alas) needing a pick pockets/sleight-of-hand check to use unseen. Finding the compartment is as easy as finding a secret door. The seal is of a reputable house of artisans. If the eyes are removed, each is worth 10gp.
- Pennant of crimson silk with white starburst edged with freshwater pearls (100gp) - There are twenty-four poor-quality freshwater pearls, each worth 1d3gp. Removing these will ruin the pennant.

- Tiara of silver filigree with five tiger's eyes set on tines to resemble eyestalks (100gp) - Odd non-magical jewelry commissioned by odd magical people.
- Unholy symbol in solid gold (100gp) - Exquisite craftsmanship makes this very valuable despite only weighing 1lb. If melted down, worth 50gp by weight. If purified or destroyed by a good cleric, paladin or similar worthy, this act is worth 100xp.
