TOPIC: I want a Combo (blue) Armor token.

I want a Combo (blue) Armor token. 8 years 11 months ago #1

I was looking through all the combo/blue tokens and noticed you can almost completely outfit a character in blue tokens. About the only glaring omission is armor.

So, here is where I put to all the other forummites, what would that armor be? stats? transmuted from? who could wear it?

Interesting question. Assuming were talking rare+ level my first thought was something with a variable AC armor such that several classes could wear it but then you run into issues of not wanting to have the AC to low as that seems to go against the intrinsic armor-ness of the piece or to high as to only have it be useful to a couple classes either. Maybe something were you could start with a 3AC and roll for an additional D6 armor or something but even then I think Id lean towards sets for the higher AC classes regardless. It would also be one more thing for the coaches to worry about so in the end I'd likely give up that idea and settle on a 4AC since that seems to be what we go with for armor that will be reasonable accessible and have a cool additional power. As to the cool power what about something like

Partial Plate of the Podd
AC4
Pali,Fighter,Barb,Ranger,Bard
The first time this character dies during a dungeon they return to life automatically at 1hp.

It would need a check box on the character sheet (it could go where the rogue masterwork checkbox is) and most of the classes listed would have to loose some AC/set-bonuses to equip it but IMO there are times it would be worth it for a free PoDD effect. Heck I know Id really be torn between Podd plate and the defenders/footmans sets.

I think armor is a logical candidate for transmuted tokens in the near future. I think it will probably be handled like it is now, instead of coming up with something that covers lots of classes.

One possibility is coming up with something simple like +1 Plate Armor as a UR, +2 Plate Armor as a Relic, and +3 Plate Armor as a Legendary. You could do something similar by reprinting Mithral Chain, have a +1 Mithral Chain Relic, and +2 Mithral Chain Legendary.

I also think there is a great opportunity to do a set of Dracolich Armor, it could be similar to the Dragonscale Armor except it might prevent cold instead of fire damage, and it could have a +1 version as Relic and +2 version as Legendary (and the Dragonscale Armor could also be allowed to be traded in for the Relic).

Not quite what youre looking for, but how about something like a runestone, but for armor, so every class can use it but it gets used up?

Can of Spray-on Teflon - +1 to AC in melee, +2 to AC for missiles, -1 to fire damage, wearer immune to fried foods (one use, turn in at start)

How cool would it be if Dracolich armor was the relic/legendary progression of the current Dragonscale (or even dragonhide) armor.

LOL, I think people are getting a bit off track. I am thinking of something along the line of other blue items that have been created. Many of them are not any better than existing rare items. Some are not even as good as rare items.

What I was looking for was something really easy for people to make like the Scythe of Reaping. It should have some inherent power but other than that it should be pretty basic. I do like the idea of the PoDD effect once per dungeon.

Mostly the idea came about because I was going through the character creator and trying to outfit a character completely in blue tokens. That is when I noticed there was no combo armor.

How about an old timey classic

Cloak of many pockets
AC 2
Usable by all (give the wizard some non purple love its been a while since robe of the mage)
Once per room the wearer may reach into a pocket and draw out a piece of gear that would otherwise be represented by a common token. i.e you want a 100 ft silk rope you got it no token required.

I kind of like people having to have the actual token to use it, and if they want a wide assortment of gear tokens, to have to carry a bag of them around with them. I wouldn't mind a Robe of the Mage variant, but I'd prefer one that didn't let you get use of tokens without owning them or having them with you.

I had some concerns about that too (hence the limitation to common gear (though I suppose it could be further limited to a set group of 5 or 6 useful items (or the gear could be consumed in the creation of the robe)))


But while were at it lets throw another for the wizard

Robe of eyes
Ac2
This item allows the wearer to see all forms of invisible or ethereal creatures. The wearer can not be surprised.

Remember, just plain 'blue' doesn't exist any more (not that it really did before). Now we have Enhanced (UC+), Exalted (R+), and Relic (UR+). And being the power gamers we are, Relics are the only 'blue' anyone cares about ;).


I'd like to see:

Bandolier of Sashes
Player may equip one additional belt.
Armor, any class

Variable Sarashi
Player may equip two additional belts.
Transmute from Bandolier of Sashes
Armor, any class

Disgaean Chestpiece
+2 to AC. Player may equip two additional belts.
Transmute from Variable Sarashi
Armor, any class

I would like to see a armor combo as well. Along the lines of the Medallion of Greyhawk. Since this year is ending the dracolich arc> Next year should use all the trophies over the past few years like the Medallion.

If they are feeling froggy they could make a leather armor(Greyhawk Milita leather Armor), a cloak (Something special for the wizards), a set of Adamintite Armor (for them fighter types due to going into the a dwavern realm) and a Sweet Set of Armor for THE special combo.
