I am sitting on 10 big boxes to turn in for trade items and more to go through. when it is all done I could easily do 1k treasure maps. since I drive my tokens to the shop (gas is cheaper than mailing), will they make me walk in and out 100 times? :S


Yes - with a different outfit/costume each time (like trick or treating houses giving out full sized candy bars.


ROFL

I say here and now that I will donate $10 to a charity for a video of Smak dressing up in 200+ costumes to transmute PTMs 5 at a time at TDHQ.

So Hypothetically is there any reason the mix couldn't change at some point.

Ie use up whatever current mix is set aside for the maps, then recollect the maps and set aside some quantity of stuff coming in for transmute the spiked with a X% premium items then anounce a new mix (and maybe a new recipie).

If the goal is just a token sink with a few spicy bits it could probably be kept rolling indefinitely with new mixes.


That said I still prefer the idea of a community war effort where people could donate trade goods by a certain date to make a certain thing happen. I.e. the bad guy escapes at the end of an adventure can we as a community collect 1000 of each tier 1 trade good to build an airship and follow them. People contributing at certain levels could get pins or form titles or other minor perks.

Would like to know what to do if our local folks want to send them all in together to save shipping (for us and TD)

Regarding the limited quantity of map tokens, why not just re-use the maps which are turned in?

Also a question for me, since Lokin lives about 90 minutes away and usually tosses her transmutes in with mine

Jeff said earlier that TD is only ordering enough extra treasure for the treasure boxes to account for the number of Pirate's Treasure Map tokens made, so there isn't any extra treasure to allow reusing them.

I'd pull all of my treasure pulls from an all-2003 treasure box if possible. :)

If I may, I would actually recommend pushing the redeem-by date just a little bit back. September 1st, 2023 - assuming we don't have more global disasters - is going to be the first day of Pax West. Now, assuming True Dungeon still makes its appearance there, that will mean everyone with these tokens will rush to redeem them the first day of the con. This, in turn, could create supply issues for the Saturday and Sunday of the con. I would hate to see people clean out the stock of treasure tokens and leave the other players having to get their mailed to them after the fact. (There is something to be said for the fun of pulling the treasure oneself.) Or, people who lose track of the day/forget will end up badgering the staff to still honor the tokens after they've officially expired. While I imagine a lot of the volunteers would be amenable to this, I would hate for them to have the extra work on their plate. Or imagine if one person allows it and another doesn't, then people will start getting angry.

Granted, I have no idea how many players with these tokens will attend Pax West and how any of these tokens they'll be able to collect before then. But Sep 2023 is over 20 months away. If even one person gets 5 maps a month for 20 months, they can roll up to Friday of Pax West demanding 1000 treasure tokens, even more if they exploit the system to get more than 5 maps a month via friends/family.

Now, is that super likely? Probably not. It's only one con on the west coast, but even the prospect of enough people bumrushing the treasure box on Friday to run it too low for the rest of the weekend is kind of worrisome. But if the deadline is extended even as short as September 3rd, 2023, people might have the decency to wait til Sunday just before pack-up. And if stock runs out at that point, I'm sure they could get the rest mailed to them since they were there in person.

I know this is all rambling and hypothetical, but... food for thought? Thanks for reading. :)

Jeff has inferred that the treasure for the Pirate Treasure Map (PTM) will come from a separate supply (which I assume will contain just enough treasure to cover the PTMs that were transmuted). So, any redemptions should not have any impact on the treasure used for the dungeon runs.

I also don't expect a lot of hoarding for the very end, because Jeff has stated that their is a limited supply of PTMs and that they won't be reused (which allows him to assure he has enough treasure).

I could be wrong, but those are my initial thoughts. I know at one point Jeff thought about capping the number of PTMs that could be redeemed per calendar month. If he suspects people are gaming the system, he could revisit that, although I think that would be very hard to monitor and there are legitimate reasons for people to have a large number of them (i.e. friends/family who legitimately want the tokens, but couldn't make it to the con).

One question I have: Will they have premade bags of PTM treasure? Or will you be required to pull tokens individually from a treasure box. The latter could really slow things down, especially if someone shows up with multiples. But that would be one way of discouraging hoarding.

Ah yeah that would make a lot of sense!

I don't know how the players are distributed across the nation, but being in OR, I think Pax is the only in-person event I can reasonably attend? Even then it's quite a long drive for me and - aside from loving my debut into the TD scene - I didn't really like the event. So if I can't make Pax 2022, Fri of Pax 2023 would be my last chance to redeem the treasure unless I sent maps to someone else and trusted them to send me back the treasure. So a redeeming cap is an idea that is a bit win-lose whether you implement it or you don't.

I would think sealed sets of 10 would make the most sense, even if it's less fun, just for the sake of not clogging up a line.

Just bumping this question...I know we have lots of TD couples/families and if we're going to be limited on monthly turn ins, I'd like to save some moolah on shipping both ways where possible. If both of our accounts are of the level that proves we're not making a fake account for out cat, that is...just a thought and wish.
