100 New Trinkets is a product available on the DMs Guild, written by Chris Bissette of Loot the Room fame. It is 11 pages long, with a cover page featuring full-color art, a table of contents page, an introduction page, one interior page of full-color art, and 7 pages of content. There is a chart of 100 different trinkets that PCs can find as loot or otherwise acquire, another listing of 20 more trinkets and 3 pages of adventure hooks featuring a random sampling of the trinkets from the 2 charts. The product has a very nice, functional, easy-to-read layout and attractive background art.

Pros

As I was reading through the list of trinkets, I didn't come across a single one that I wouldn't use. I can't tell you how rare that is for me and a product with lists of random items. Normally I'd discount somewhere between 50-75% of the available options, but not here. The more obvious pop culture references are the only ones I might hesitate to use, and even then I still think I'd use them with the right group.

Many of the trinkets gave me ideas for how I'd use them in my games to drive the plot or introduce new side plots. That to me is the hallmark of a good RPG product--the number of ideas it inspires.

The adventure hooks section was wonderful, with many great ideas. Even better was its utility in showing DMs, particularly newer ones, how to use a random list of items like this to enhance their game. Dear Diary and The Dreamer both stood out to me as particularly excellent. I'd love to see an entire adventure written around either of those.

Cons

There are 2 very minor grammatical errors.

Conclusion

I am very glad I picked up this product. I will definitely be making use of these trinkets and adventure hooks in my game going forward. I love products along these lines that do something different with the standard treasure items your PCs usually encounter. At just 99 cents, this product is a steal. I highly recommend buying it, reading it and using it.
