Things Found in a Troll's Stomach

My brain is dead so time to do a random list. Maybe you killed the Troll and you are searching through its insides. Maybe you punched its gut so hard it threw up. I don't know. Maybe consider rolling when the troll is first encountered and see how what it ate might affect the entire fight.

Any good wizard knows that one of the prime ingredients in making your own bag of holding is an intact troll stomach.



1. A Gastrolith the size of a watermelon.
2. Troll Bezoar, difficult to differentiate from the Gastrolith. Goat Bezoars can heal poison, Troll Bezoars are made of the shit that even Trolls can't digest all rolled  together into a thick horrific mass. 10% chance it cures anything, 90% of giving you Super Tetanus, Mummy Rot, and 1 other random disease.
3. A fresh adventurer mashed into a pulp. Roll on a random NPC charge with all of their equipment.
4. A Baby Troll. Trolls reproduce by eating enough meat in one sitting and eating a large portion of itself. Surviving, the meats combine and make a new unique troll. It gets a surprise attack on your face.
5. 10d6 Teeth, 60-Teeth gold coins, and a pair of very large butterfly wings.
6. 60 Gallons of a non-acidic liquid from the d100 Bottled Goods list. It got into a Distillery and/or Alchemist's lab.
7. A signet ring, a water tight case with scrolls regarding an armistice between two warring countries, and four horseshoes.
8. AAAAAHHHHHH FUCK MEAT BEE HIVE
9. A really really annoying/annoyed Demilich.
10. A small sphere of annihilation, no wonder the troll was so emaciated.
11. A License Plate from a 1971 Ford Pinto.
12. A partridge and a bunch of pears, 2 turtle doves, 3 french hens 4 calling birds, 5 gold rings 6 geese a-laying, 7 swans a-swimming, 8 maids a-milking, 9 ladies dancing, 10 lords a-leaping, 11 pipers piping, and 12 drummers drumming
13. A magically powered personal "massager" that is stuck in on.
14. 1d6 Taxidermy Deer Butts
15. A Sentient Disease that was piloting the troll towards as reservoir.

29. Maggie, an acid resistant but slightly torn pink teddy bear that allows their new owner to resist any affect that would interfere with natural sleep/rest.

32. Four and twenty live blackbirds
33. A Giant Fluke, stats as a boa constrictor. 
34. A very grateful and very moist Prince.

71. A Troll Pearl- Like an oyster pearl, something indigestible gets stuck and overtime is covered in something not unlike Nacre. Eventually it is excreted in one fashion or another, but this one is massive and is worth a small dragon's hoard.
72.  Troll Beer- Under very rare circumstances a troll's stomach will ferment its last meal into a highly potent alcohol capable of frying a dwarf's beard right from their face. Troll Beer gives its drinker a Troll's regenerative qualities as long as the drinker remains drunk. It also deals 1d6 permanent Con damage from the sheer taxing power it has on one's liver.

  2. Opening the door to the Stygian Library from the troll's stomach is a nice idea.

    According to first random Wikipedia article, 88 could Miguel Ángel Martínez (footballer). Keeping actual cannibal Shia LaBeouf company, maybe?

  3. I had to test the random Wikipedia article too. My troll ate the Stanislaus County Fair. Impressive.

    Great job on the table, I'll definitely be making use of this.
