Treasure

You will frequently find treasure on the carcasses of the monsters you slaughter. More powerful monsters carry more valuable treasure, which is indicated by the monster's treasure type. Also, you may run across type one and two treasures wandering through the realm. A specific type may contain items that you can use in your travels or currency like gold or gems which can be used to buy things at the trading posts.

The chance that treasure is cursed is based upon treasure type. The more valuable treasures have a greater chance of being cursed. A cursed treasure knocks energy lower, and adds some poison.
