List of Treasures

in The King of Dragon Pass

Last Revision: 03 December 2000

Usually, treasures may be found in four ways: By exploration, by trade, by performing a heroquest, and by a random event.


Many treasures can be found on your own tula. These are indicated on the table below. Some can be found only in specific locations; again, these are indicated. Some many be found in any location; this includes some that may also be found on your tula. Several treasures will increase the chance of finding other treasures. These include the Hunting Horn and the Tiger's Eye Necklace.


Certain treasures are held by other clans. The easiest way to obtain them is by trade. You can try to trade a treasure for a treasure, or buy them with cows or goods. Regardless of the amount you offer, the chief of the other clan may refuse the deal. Some of the richer tribes may have multiple treasures. There are a limited number of treasures avaliable in each game this way; trade too often and the game will run out. Note also that the treasures of another clan can also be offered during tribute or sponsorship negotiations.


Many, but not all, of the quests have the option to quest for an object of power. The appropriate heroquest is noted beside each such artifact. Note that the treasures obtainable from Issaries the Conciliator are avaliable for each traversal of the heropath. Also, at least one treasure is available off the beaten track.


In contrast to the other three methods of obtaining treasures, you have little control over random events. Some can be quite lucrative if you play your cards right, others, a faustian bargan. Choose wisely.

Finally, some treasures can be found in multiple ways. Most listed can be found by Trade.
