1d20 Sword & Sorcery Treasures of Nodens Table For Your Old School Campaigns

 Where treads the Elder God Nodens in his wake the Old One's servants fear & though he is the lord of the Abyss his blessings & treasures are few or precious. However in the fringe place & the far off places of the hideous Abyss there are artifacts & strange trophies the 'lord of the lost & the hunt has gathered. 

During the Thurian Age few if any of Nodens relics, treasures, or even the Lord of the Hunt's trophies are known too the average adventurer. The priests of Nodens however will pay handsomely for one of these relics of a by gone age. 
Horror and the unknown or the strange are always closely connected so that it is hard to create a convincing picture of shattered natural law or cosmic alienage or 'outsideness' without laying stress on the emotion of fear.
