TOPIC: Is Bead of the Lucky Traveler still available?

Is Bead of the Lucky Traveler still available? <with official reply from Jeff 2 months 3 weeks ago #1

Looks like the transmute deadline has been extended to Dec 1, 2021.
I saw that they were "sold out" at Gamehole Con, but, I'm hoping that just pertained to the supply at the con and that they are still transmutable by mail for another month.

I was told at the convention that they were sold out, and there would be no more. They also seem to have disappeared from the order transmutation list on the website, so it looks like they have indeed gone the way of the dodo.

Argh! I had two more to transmute. Time to unpack them from the shipping box.

Wow, that really sucks, and I think something should be done in this specific case.
So, as someone who only transmutes in person (yes, I know this is a privilege and I don't expect special accommodations, just let me set the stage), I have had components ready for a +3 holy avenger for about 2 years now. I was waiting for an in person opportunity to transmute and never would have expected my chance to expire BEFORE the posted expiration date. But if it had happened to me, I would be a annoyed and inconvenienced, but at least I could sell the components and buy the relic I wanted.
BUT, for the bead of the lucky traveler, if you do that, you will lose at least $50. The additional value of all those components dropped with the expiration of the transmute.
I suggest a substitute; you can convert those 18 monster bits and bead of firehold into THREE golden fleece (until dec 1), as compensation for the lack of bead of lucky traveler. At least then, anyone planning a last minute transmute can get comparable value out of it.
And to reiterate, this is a special case for this one transmute because of the severe loss of value for those wanting to transmute, and this should not be seen as a blanket expectation for future transmutes that run out.
this is not a signature.

While I'd support your idea, let's also remember that, like most items, the bead was extended due to Covid.

TPTB didn't necessarily order enough to have this transmute open this long.

I missed out on 10. It is what it is. TD extended the expiration a year. They didn’t have to. For those of us that waited to last min. That is on us.
I had it happen on shirt if blessed strength. Arcane scroll tubes etc. it is not the first or last time it will happen.

I'm also one of those who was hoping to wait for an in-person convention to do my transmuting, and am also disappointed that the ingredients I'd put together will go to waste.

It seems like there might be other options rather than just saying it's sold out before the transmute deadline. Maybe TD can offer the paper equivalent like they did with the 7th Tooth, or even a short print run of wooden token versions to make up the difference? Or even just an "IOU" until they have newly printed ones to send out, even if that is a matter of months. Maybe an offer to turn the ingredients in for some other transmute that isn't sold out?

seeing has how the 2022 tokens are on a boat it would be over a year. everyone had 3 years to make it (it was able to in person at GC and GHC in 2019) There are no excuses. I am out some too. it is what it is

Chad, agree to disagree.

I hope they don't make a wooden one, as it just makes it a whole lot more valuable to collectors. They extended the date to transmute, people had plenty of time. If they offer anything, it should be a paper version with the ability to trade it for a token down the road, but even that creates a a more limited version due to the date that would be on the token. To be honest though, this is just a learning opportunity for us all.

Due to rather poor management by yours truly, we THOUGHT we were out of Bead of the Lucky Traveler tokens. However, during a deep re-organization of the token room today -- we found another 100 of them. So, the Bead is back on the menu boys -- while supplies last.

Steps are being taken to ensure this does not happen again. Thanks for your patience.
