V and G Inventory

Descriptions of Rarer Items

This is what is delivered to the Lepidstadt Courthouse early on the morning of 15th Kuthona plus what you took out yourselves, i.e., a full inventory of the Chymic Works. It is all labelled with a description and where it was found. This list includes items that you have already been given so do NOT double count; I have marked where this treasure has been handed out. Neil was going to determine a cost of sale for items you did not want – this list should help and has the extra stuff you didn’t have time to pick up on it too.

Starred (*) items are in the Pathfinder RPG Advanced Player’s Guide.
