[GURPS DF 8] Let's Roll Up Some Treasure!

Okay, see this?;

We're gonna use this book to make some cool stuff for parties to find in dungeons. Full disclosure: we're basing the items on the GURPS system, and its Dungeon Fantasy series subgenre. You may have to re-work the stats on creations if you want to drop them into D&D games and the like.

If you have your own copy of DF 8, you can play along. Otherwise, suggest/vote either completely random generation of treasure, semi-randomised generation or give me a basic discription of what kind of treasure to generate.
