<br />no I carried it through.... Granted it was not on my head..... it was carried in my "wake" through the shadow...<br />

<br /><br />And what a wake it was.  :)<br /><br />Sorry, could resist.  Gotta up that post count somehow.

  Still, even being a novelty, a Bag of Holding is fun to have.  I would like to have another<br />one that isn't on a wooden coin, but on one of the new tokens with a cool pic. <br />  I always used mine to carry a dead party member or rations (not being the same thing  :O )<br />in any adventure.  You could pull out that dead party member for use with the catapult.<br />You don't need the whole person for resurrection, right?  :thumbsup:

Imagine the outcires of horror and anguish and injustice that would arise if True Dungeon instituted a policy limiting the number of tokens that a person could carry into the Dungeon with them!  Even telling people they could only carry in 50 tokens would get some people very upset.  =D

Seriously dude.  This is a better place without you.  Why don't you go back to where ever it is that you came from.

Huh. In 2007, I was forced to use the bag-check for a little 'half-backpack' that had only tokens in it. I figured it was policy not to let any backpacks go in.<br /><br /><br />

<br />John,<br /><br />I've been taking a backpack into the dungeon with me since 2005...It holds my tokens!<br /><br />If a person has a bag/backpack, and it holds tokens, we let them go in...(we also do not search to prove tokens are in there - Honor System).<br /><br />In the case where the dungeon has a certain element that might make taking something in "un-friendly" to the dungeon or the person taking said item in - we really discourage the item.  (EX: horned helmets or weapons - with the shadow gate from 2007).<br />

Blimey!

The rule of thumb was if a person said they had tokens in a bag - the bag was OK to go.<br /><br />Problem may have been consistency of Coaches - or Admin...

<br />Or signs which say "No Backpacks" but dont mention exceptions for tokens.

Yeah; I see inconsistency here then...the way I remember reading it and hearing it "No Backpacks, No purses, no bags, etc."<br />I could swear TD made a point of that in 2006 (which was my first year as a player and volunteer).<br />I'm pretty certain even waist packs were supposed to be on the "not allowed" list, although I think I did use one for my token cache in 2007.<br /><br />JKW

Would someone be refused entry because they did not check a bag?<br />

I believe the original intent behind allowing people to check bags was:<br /><br />1. If we used water in the event we did not want people bitching because their stuff (cell phone, gaming books, etc.) got wet.<br />2. The spaces in the dungeon were cramped and a huge bookbag being thrown around seemed a bit dangerous.<br />3. Once less thing to worry about means you can focus on the game.<br /><br />I still believe we reserve the possibility of the use of spray, or squirt guns, etc. so anyone taking anything into the dungeon that could be ruined by such a trap representation is placing their stuff at risk.  If someone had their tokens in a book bag, I can't see why we would prevent them, but the room and inconvenience thing still holds true.<br /><br />The "Bag of Holding" was really just a novelty, meant to represent the binder in token form.<br />

And the twist in some people's knickers was when it cost $1 to check things...<br /><br />Some folks did not want their stuff checked for a cost...and the risk of damage what not was a non-issue for them as opposed to the checking of items...
