100 Treasured Items of the Deceased

This list was submitted by reddit user u/EmpedoclesTheWizard! Thank you for the incredible work!

One hundred of the most treasured items of those buried and randomly found in coffins, caskets, or graves. The items may have been infused by part of the spirits of their owners, making them exceptional. Depending on how magical your game is, I recommend a 1 in 6 for low magic, and 3 in 6 for a high magic game of grave robbers. Entry describes item, what it was used for, and how it might change if infused.
