Tokens have become a very popular component of True Dungeon since they were introduced at Gen Con So Cal in 2003. The tokens were added so that players could experience one of the most interesting and fun parts of adventuring—getting treasure! They started out as "wooden nickel" type chips.
In 2007 the tokens were upgraded to professionally manufactured metal/plastic chips that have an embossed logo on one side and a full-color image on the other. The tokens are heavy, and with their "gold" color they have the weight and appearance of a gold piece. The tokens are VERY durable, water-proof, and have a special clear laminate that protects the full-color image quite well. Starting this year, all the Ultra Rare chips will feature the current year embossed on their back plastic face. Also, we have added additional colors to the high-end Transmute tokens (and year embossment) to deter counterfeiting.
The tokens that come in a standard 10-pack are organized into Common, Uncommon, Rare and Ultra Rare rarity groups. Each pack of Treasure Tokens contains:
- 7 random Common tokens*
- 2 random Uncommon tokens
- 1 random Rare token
*1 out of 100 10-packs come with 1 Ultra Rare token in place of one of the Common tokens!
Every player receives a free pack of 10 random Treasure Tokens at the start of their adventure, but players can also purchase tokens online at this website. Some players have become collectors and trade tokens throughout the year on the TD Forums. You can order tokens now by clicking on the STORE tab or by clicking on the STORE graphic below.
Below are the images of the 140 tokens in the 2017 Treasure Token Collection. You can see higher resolution images of the tokens at the very bottom of this page in the Image Gallery. You can find out vital info on the 2017 Treasure Token Collection by reading our free "Quick Token Reference" which is now available for DOWNLOAD HERE.
(Seven out of the ten tokens in a pack are Common.)
(Two out of the ten tokens in a pack are Uncommon.)
(One out of the ten tokens in a pack is Rare.)
(1 out of 100 Packs have a random Ultra Rare put in place of a Common. 2016 URs HERE.)
NOTE: With each $250+ token purchase, you can pick one of the above 2017 Ultra Rare tokens to be included in your order for FREE. You can also select from any 2016 Ultra Rare -- which can be viewed HERE. Multiples of $250 token purchases apply, so if you place a $500 order, you get to pick TWO FREE Ultra Rares tokens. Multiple sub-$250 orders may not be combined to achieve the $250 free Ultra Rare premium. There is a special screen that appears during checkout to use to tell us which UR tokens you wish to pick.
We are very happy to be working with Worldbuilders -- a great charity founded by best-selling author Patrick Rothfuss to make the world a better place. We are donating $2 per ticket sold at Gen Con 2017 to Worldbuilders. Patrick has been gracious enough to allow us to base many of our 2017 tokens on his fantasy world. For instance, the Common Selas Flower, the Uncommon Potion Denner Essence, the Rare Modegan Longbow, and the Ultra Rare Shaed are all inspired by Pat's work. If you are a fan of medieval fantasy, we encourage you to give his work a read. Both of the 2017 adventures will be set in areas encountered in The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear.
Continuing in 2017, your True Dungeon character may be able to manifest psychic power! To learn more about the available powers, how to unlock your character's psychic potential and supercharge your mind, click here.
2017 Transmuted Tokens
Complete information about our limited-edition Transmuted Tokens can be found HERE. We have created a fun system that you can use to craft limited-edition tokens with your unused and left-over tokens. Larger images of the 2017 Transmuted tokens can be found HERE. The 2017 Transmuted tokens will be available to transmute on our website starting Feb. 1st, 2017.

Gen Con Ticket Draw
On March 20th, 2017, we will hold a special drawing from the names of all the 2017 token buyers to date. Ten lucky token buyers will win. Each winner can "pre-buy" up to 10 tickets (from one slot) before anyone else! Winners will be contacted on March. 20th and have until March 25th to pick their event slot (and pay for the tickets). If we do not hear back from a winner by March 25th, then another name will be drawn. True Dungeon event tickets go on sale for everyone in May. For every 10-pack you buy, we put your name in the virtual hat. Winners are guaranteed to get the exact slot they want without having to worry about the crazy time during event registration. You still have to buy the tickets at the normal price.
REMEMBER: The more tokens you buy, the greater your chance of winning!
The Golden Ticket
We are randomly inserting 40 special Golden Ticket tokens into the 2015 token collection. Instead of a Common token, you may get one of these uber-cool tokens in your 10-pack. Details for the Golden Ticket Event can be found at the URL printed on the token. You will also get a host of extra goodies which include a completely awesome pack of uber-rare and powerful tokens and an exclusive GT-only surprise inside your True Dungeon adventure.
Equipping more than one Ultra Rare token can give your character some added benefits. Three notable set powers are in play this year involving the four "Charming" Ultra Rare magic items. Equipping at least three "Charming" items will make your character more powerful by bestowing +1 level!
There are many other "sets" of tokens that combine to give extra benefits. You can read more about them HERE.
The Kilt of Tavernbane (2017 Ultra Rare) token is the first token in a four-year Eldritch-item Transmutable set. When you have all three "Bane Kilts" collected (in 2019), you can transmute them into the "Eldritch Kilt" token which will grant your character a yet-to-be revealed magical bonus to your character's stats.
Condensed Packs ($1K each) - NO LONGER AVAILABLE (Pre-Orders Only)
Some token collectors don't want to spend a lot of time opening up hundreds of 10-packs of tokens. They asked if we could make a condensed version available that would look like what 120 10-packs would look like AFTER the Common tokens were turned in for Trade tokens. Condensed packs save collectors the hassle of opening up all those 10-packs, sorting them, and then sending them off to be exchanged for Trade tokens. During the Check Out process, there will be a text box available for giving us notes. In that text box, please indicate (in $1,000 increments) how much of your order should be in condensed form.
Instead of getting the normal 120 packs, you will receive the following for each Condensed Pack:
- 4 Ultra Rare tokens of your choice from either the 2017 or 2016 print runs—mix & match as you like
- 1 "3rd Tooth of Cavadar” Ultra Rare tokens - 3rd part of a 7-year story arc Transmuted token! (shipped with your order)
- 1 signed copy of each module from the two 2017 adventures (2 modules total)
- 1 random 2017 Ultra Rare (There is a 20% chance an ADDITIONAL random Ultra Rare token will appear in your random Rare token bag.)
- 120 Random Rare tokens (10% of these will be platinum backed)
- 240 Random Uncommon tokens (10% of these will be platinum backed)
- 2x Potion of Distilled Healing (in place of 21 Selas Flower Common token)
- 1x Alchemist’s Ink
- 3x Alchemist’s Parchment
- 5x Darkwood Plank
- 7x Dwarven Steel
- 1x Enchanter’s Munitions
- 5x Minotaur Hide
- 7x Mystic Silk
- 4x Philosopher’s Stone
- 1,050 GP
- Normal chance of a Golden Ticket*
*Golden Ticket: The chance to get a Golden Ticket will be the same exact chance you would have with a regular token purchase. The proper amount of Golden Tickets will be randomly placed among the “120 Rares” bag in all the Condensed packs. You will ALSO find that we have randomly added the “1 in 100” random Ultra Rare tokens inside these random “120 Rare” bag. On average, 1.2 additional Ultra Rare tokens will be added to your Rare bag, so most Rare bags will have 120 Rares inside plus 1 Ultra Rare as well. One out of five Rare bags will have two Ultra Rares. A very few will also have an additional token included—a Golden Ticket token. So, most Rare bags will have 121 tokens, 20% will have 122 tokens, and fewer will have 123 tokens.
