This is a semi-revival of an old thread, the name of which I have forgotten.

Okay, so the PCs have found a treasure that is strange or is hard to describe with words alone. You're stumped. What do you do?

I've been there way too many times.

Does anyone have any suggestions for making props for your games? How can I show the PCs treasures they have gotten, i.e. gold pieces, scrolls of parchment, jewelry, & other small items? What kinds of craft supplies or cheap techniques would be effective in making PC treasure "come alive" and to enhance the drama of the game? How much money will such things cost?

All comments and suggestions are welcomed.


P.S. Sorry I have no tips to offer. I'm still really young and inexperienced with D&D (and arts/crafts, for that matter!).
