One hundred different strange, interesting, and dangerous items found within the mysterious tower of a wizard.

1A portal that flickers in and out of existence on the back wall; the wizard never could get it to stick on this plane properly...
2A closet filled with robes that change color and style depending on your mood.
3A stack of pre-addressed pieces of parchment that, once signed by the wizard, fold themselves up into paper airplanes and then fly off to deliver themselves.
4A table covered in strange alchemical ingredients, including glowing mushrooms and shimmering crystals.
5A small stone carving of a toad that croaks when rain is coming soon.
6A tobacco pouch which never runs out of tobacco, and an accompanying pipe which makes its smoke glow with soft colors.
7An alchemy table that has a complex set of ingredients set out and brewing. If the party inquires about it, it's the wizard's lunch.
8A collection of feathers, framed and mounted on a wall.
9A jar of fireflies is hung over a book stand illuminating the pages.
10A book levitating inside of a birdcage. There is a padlock on the cage.
11A strange puzzle box with many bizarre tiles that can be slid around.
12A very interesting looking potion with a faded label. The wizard can't remember what it does, but... they are too nervous to move it in case it's become unstable.
13An animated shortsword and a rapier are clashing into each other, mid air, as if two opponents were battling.
14A chess set that moves on its own.
15A stack of parchment that erases itself if given the command word.
16A massive dragon skull hanging from the ceiling.
17A suit of armor in one corner that, on a second look, is actually an armored flesh golem silently standing vigil.
18A garden filled with plants that grow edible gems instead of fruits or flowers.
19Jars filled with brackish liquids and fluorescent gels. Some contain creature body parts as shrunken heads, talons of feral beasts, fleshy organs in emulsions of reddish tint.

41A long and very sticky strip of cloth, wound up into a roll. It's black on one side, white on the other, and is strong enough to attach an object weighing a hundred pounds to any wall or ceiling.
42A goblin skull kept in a lead lined box. If the box is opened it will berate anyone it sees with crude jokes and insults.

44A pile of letters from the wizard's mother asking him when he's going to settle down and stop with the magic nonsense.
45A garden of sentient plants that communicate through telepathy.
46A small pebble which, when held in the mouth, makes the wearer speak in a variety of different voices and accents. The voice and accent is random every time the pebble is used.

60A stack of papers with the title 'Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica', when you ask what it is the wizard yells 'Gibberish! Quackery! The ravings of a lunatic!'

72A big mechanical contraption with a keyhole and a slot big enough to fit a letter into.
73An assortment of monster hairs, labeled and bound in tufts.
74What looks like a broom that's bent out of shape lying on a cushion. When you comment on it, the wizard yells at it to stop 'lazing about and get back to work'. It springs to life, salutes, and begins cleaning until the wizard's attention is elsewhere. It then resumes lounging.
75A bonsai tree in a decorative pot that goes through each of the seasons every day, complete with snow in the winter. If you look close you think you can even see tiny bees buzzing around the spring flowers.
76A hat that has a magical barrier above it just large enough to shield the wearer from rain or snow.
77A gorgeous stained glass window that shows a scene from a different plane. Each time the party passes it, the scene has changed slightly.
78Dust on the wall plays a memory of the wizard's like a film projector.
79A room filled with mirrors that reflect different versions of the same person from alternate dimensions.
80A dream catcher which actually catches dreams in their liquid form and allows the wizard to store them as potions in crystal bottles.

82An orrery depicting this planet's solar system. A small set of levers and gears can adjust their rotations and orbits.
