1d15 Random 'Witch Fated' Treasures & Relics of Occult Power Table

"I utter in words my thanks to the Ruler of all, the King of Glory, the everlasting Lord, for the treasures which I here gaze upon, in that I have been allowed to win such things for my people before my day of death! Now that I have given my old life in barter for the hoard of treasure, do ye henceforth supply the people's needs, — I may stay here no longer. Bid the war-veterans raise a splendid barrow after the funeral fire, on a projection by the sea, which shall tower high on Hronesness as a memorial for my people, so that seafarers who urge their tall ships from afar over the spray of ocean shall thereafter call it Beowulf's barrow."
Line 2795 of Beowulf

There are relics & treasures that have fallen from the hands of kings that they are wreathed in destiny. Songs are sung of their stories but they have gone into the claws of dragons, demons, & monsters in lairs under the Earth. These relic are the lost pieces of another age claimed by monsters. PC's who find these treasures are often caught into the skein of fate & may find themselves on an adventure regardless.

Any of these  items  often of legend & myth find their way into the claws of some seriously dangerous dragons or monsters. They are often 40% chance cursed or worse 'witch fated.' Witch fated relics & treasures bare the mark of  occult power or supernatural influence. Covens, cults, & groves of witches of the most dangerous stripe desire these items. They are often part & parcel of the complex supernatural relationships that arise between dragons & covens of local witches. Any time that one of these items of power leaves a hoard there is a 70% chance that a cell of witches or their agents with the 'sight' will seek the person who has possession of it.

There is a 20% chance of these items having some odd supernatural quirk or power that has been soaked up over the hundreds of years laying next to a sleeping dragon. Consult the appropriate type of dragon for possible powers or abilities of these items. Dragons may go on the war path to recover such a minor relic because it has gone missing. Villages may burn, crops turned to ash, and places of power may feel their Hellish wraith.
Those possessing such items may be troubled by horrid dreams & visions of impending doom & depravity. The dragon may supernaturally become aware of the owner of the item through their dreams & may be able to track them across the Astral planar dreamscape.
