Re: True Dungeon Item Recreations 9 years 7 months ago #13

Are these the sort of items that everyone always tends to have equipped?

Well, honestly, probably not everyone. But my guess is your items will appeal most to dedicated players that have URs already and enough discretionary income to want to show off their special tokens.

I'd suggest a very strong looking belt (which would cover the Giant Strength and Might belts), and then a more ethereal/enchanted appearing bracer (covering Celestial and Zephyr Bracers). Definitely go through the UR token yearbook in the resource section to see how some of them have "looked" in the past.

Sam - be sure and check out the token guide to get an idea of what the items look like in the TD world.

BTW, I bet you could make an awesome Helm of Retribution, and some ranger diehard would love to have it!

I wouldn't necessarily care if the items looked like TD items.

I'd rather just have a nice, well-made item (leather bracers) that shows off multiple tokens (so many as possible, potentially six per arm).

In fact, I would go so far as to say I would prefer that. Then it would cause confusion if I was wearing replica Celestial Bracers but using Bracers of Supreme Archery, or verse vica.


However, on the note of replicas, both last year and this year there have been replicas of token items used in the dungeon. I'm not quite sure if this helps or hinders the idea of fan worn replicas, but it is worth consideration.

I quite agree. I think replicas might not be the way to go- but certain archetypal styles might be the ticket.

A tough looking belt would work for the UR stuff the ranger and melee guys wear.
A more mystically styled bracer would be more appropriate for wizards, clerics, etc.

If I recall, some of the token images are based off of real items. Didn't Gary have the original belt of token UR Belt of Giant STR?

Sounds like a plan.

Anyone want to donate a spare token to the cause?

Do you care what token it is Sam?
Would you like more than 1?

I really just need tokens for sizing purposes. 6 of them would be grand. Anymore would just mean I can take pictures of multiple items at once. It sounds like people would appreciate bracers/belts/bandoleers that hold 6 or so.

Sam,

I just sent you a personal email confirming that I have your correct address.

I'll send you 6 tokens that you may keep after you give me the nod.

Cheers,
Chris
