Droplists are the mechanic by which rewards are given in-game, mostly through searching ruins and completing quests. While there are a few quests that give the same specific reward every time, most of the quests have rewards that are semi-randomized, picked from one of the following droplists. Each droplist provides a variety of potential rewards which vary depending on the technological era the empire receiving the reward is in.
Many of the droplist tables will include weights, which affect the chances of getting a given reward from a given droplist; the higher a reward's weight, the more likely you are to receive it.

The Mad Fairies Droplist is one of the main droplists used in the game, especially for the major faction quests.
