TOPIC: Token binder inserts?

Token binder inserts? 4 months 1 week ago #1

I recently rearranged how I store my tokens in my optima f binder ( www.trenttokens.com/collections/trent-tokens-binders/products/token-binder-optima-f-ringbinder ) and I was thinking about a few things I would like some opinions on.

Since the binder is in a 3 column 5 row arrangement, I was having problems logically storing a build like it is arranged on the character mat ( truedungeon.com/resources/item/51-character-class-guide ) as the mat is arranged in a 5 column 7 row arrangement. After a little bit of thinking, I rotated the binder 90 degrees and now have a 5 column 3 row arrangement that lines up with the mat much better.

Now that the tokens logically line up line the mat, I was considering printing the mat, cutting it into a few pieces, and then putting it into the binder. That way, when a token is removed, the slot would be visible through the binder sheet.

Of course, the mat isn’t arranged nicely to do this... should I just take a copy of the mat, drop it in my favor photo editor and start slicing and dicing, or is there a better way? What should I print it on - normal paper wouldn’t be terribly durable.... card stock? What is everyone doing for the Charm of Avarice? In the protective case it doesn’t really fit in the binder, but I believe the recommendation is not to remove the CoA from its case. Do you just use a dummy token in a binder?

Thanks!

Can you post pictures of your setup? I'm curious :)

When I was a coach, I saw some folks use a mat, but had attached (glued?) pockets onto it so they could slide in the tokens, and then roll up the whole mat. It looked like a pretty neat way to organize things, but very DIY.

I show the coach my stats on my phone (so I can change things around a few minutes before if need be), most coaches don't bother verifying tokens or just do a very cusory check. and then I have a Whitman Coin Wallet of just the oddball tokens I'd need to show the room GM (like Moon Dog, Shaman's Arcane Hat, etc.) and leave the armor etc. in the big binder, since it's all on the party sheet.

The front page of my big binder has the TEs, so I can show that at the treasure pull area.

I tried To mock up something with a cheap paper print out. I first took a picture of how the tokens look in the binder. I then took the Paper mock up and put it behind one of the optima binder sheets, and then removed a few tokens so the slot names would show up through the binder sheet.

Ideally, the background textures from the character mat would replace the white from my picture, and the alignment would be better.

Hopefully what I’m shooting for makes more sense now.

I do that as well. Across, then down to the next row.

Last page is Runestones; I decide before the coaching room which will be used, and I set it on the mat so I remember to turn it in. Same with Salve.

Leaving out any the DM may ask to see, such as Amulet of Guarding, Cloak of Shadowskin, etc. Those are in the wallet.

This is great, thanks. I just got some and was wondering how to best arrange.
