Down through the trails  and roads of the West, stage coaches thunder through passages and around hair pin turns. There have been the occasional mishaps and accidents that have caused coaches, their contents and more to go missing. Here then is a set of random weird contents for stage coaches to confound and cause PC's to become embroiled in the deep end of adventures in the weird West.

1d8 Random Weird Strong Box Contents Table
  1. A weird statue of a squat and weird Heathen idol about twelve inches high and weighing in at about 30 pounds of not quite gold. Worth about five hundred dollars to the right collector. The thing is wrapped in butcher paper and its on its way back East to  Miskatonic University  in Arkham Mass. The thing hurts your eyes to look at, a local cult of weirdos is after the thing. 
  2. A single edged silver dagger of high quality steel in a small wooden box, the thing is cold and almost seems alive. The dagger is  a +1 weapon and seems to dance just out of the corner of your eye. A doctor back east is waiting for the dagger in New York City. The dagger has a sheath made of some very fine but odd kid leather. Voices and other odd whispering seem to echo around the owner. The dagger is worth 20.00 dollar to the right collector. 
  3. A glass jar of dirt with humanoid heart in the thing smells a bit briny. A small cult of outlaws is after this item and will stop at nothing to have it.
  4. A single gold coin in a glass bell jar is very odd to look at, one side is defaced and the other contains hundreds of scratching of weird alien signs and symbols on it.
