House of Dust and Ash: Items for Auction

Recommended Posts

<spoilers for my campaign at least.>

I have a copy where I took out the GM bits and printed it out for my players.

Some of the weapons may be overpowered for your campaign, but I'm bumping up my power levels for both the players and their adversaries. I really want Ascension now! gui%C3%B1o.gif Also, Silas Marr is unlikely to let them get away with using his money to buy items he considers above their station.

 

 

Items of the Haarlock Estates for Auction at the House of Dust and Ash

Lesser Items

Saint Meredith's Wristlet
Saint Meredith was famous 3,509 years ago for bringing the faith of the Emperor to people trapped on planets that were consumed by heresy. The skulls of this bracelet are said to be carved from the saint's teeth. Her teeth and fragments of her skull were all that survived her last encounter with the enemies of mankind, according to reports. Saint Meredith was famous for defeating deamons of the warp in deadly combat.
Bidding starts at 5,000 Thrones

GM: Any weapon held in the hand whose wrist holds this bracelet is considered to be a Warded Weapon. DotDG 120. Skull bracelet.

A fine example of the taxidermist's art, this hideous creature would be a sure-fire conversation starter. Eyes seem to follow you around the room. Age and Origin: Unknown.
Bidding starts at 10,000 Thrones

GM: Causes strange dreams that force a Willpower Test (+0) or bestow 1d10 Insanity per year.

The Gilded Widow
A magnificent life-sized automaton formed from gold and encrusted with agates and rubies, dressed in an archaic gown of crimson and purple silks.

Dont forget to throw in a few basic rare items. The random good quality power sword, which is just that, a good quality power sword... it can have a cool name, and a rediculious price... try to mess with the characters thrones a bit...

I actually shared in many of the same lesser item choices. I also added in a lathe blade and a best quality bolt gun that has the Haarlock symbol on it. I added in a couple other items from the cold trade, and stayed away from the weapons of the Enoulians....and the stuffed Genestealer.

As something really funny I had the glass jar with the doll hop off the table and break when the Psyker weakened the veil. Now it sort of just follows him around, and he is always just catching it out of the corner of his eye. Think of it kind of like the gremlin on the wing of the plane from the old twlight zone show happy.gif

Wouldn't the bidders get burnt for heresy and treason for dealing with daemonic weaponry and xeno technology?

That depends entirely on who they are and how they cover their tracks. Some people are a little more equal (and purer) than others. And most items will be sold under names that hint at their nature, but still let their buyers and sellers feign ignorance. The classic would be the xeno-manufactured item "made by unknown hands".
