TOPIC: Will there be new trade item tokens in 2009?

Will there be new trade item tokens in 2009? 11 years 4 weeks ago #1

Since we are talking about new tokens for 2009, is there any word on new trade tokens (like minotaur hide, dwarven steel, etc.) for new categories of tokens (Rares, Common Gear, Scrolls, etc.).  I know there was a poll earlier and a lot of good ideas were tossed around, so since a new token order was forthcoming, perhaps the forum as a collective can help discuss what might make good art/names for such items, if we were told what the new categories were going to be.<br /><br />

I believe the categories are Scrolls, Items, and Rare Weapons & Armor.  The Scrolls and items can be common, uncommon, and rare, at a turn-in ratio (I think) of 1:3:6.

That is correct.<br /><br />The tokens are:<br />Darkwood Billits (planks) for Gear/Items<br />Alchemists parchment for scrolls<br />and<br />Aragonite for rare weapons and armor

<br /><br />Great name for the rare weapons & armor.  If there is an item for Rare Rings, can we call it Bagginsite?  (just kidding!)

Aragonite is a real mineral that forms really beautiful crystal structures.  We had a nice specimen to use as an image for the token.<br /><br />More if you are curious: http://www.rockcollector.co.uk/infocus/aragonite.asp

<br /><br />Thanks for the link.  I figured it was a real mineral, but it just seemed cool to have an item for Rare weapons & armor so close to being named after Aragorn  =)

It did seem appropritate, the other mineral I had in mind was Celestite, I will have to use that somewhere else.

<br /><br />I am sure we could figure out something, but it would have to be a precious gem, wouldn't it...

<br />I believe the categories are Scrolls, Items, and Rare Weapons & Armor.  The Scrolls and items can be common, uncommon, and rare, at a turn-in ratio (I think) of 1:3:6.  <br />

<br /><br />Just so I am clear on the ratio thing for gear and scrolls:<br /><br />If I wanted to make a Alchemist Parchment, assuming it needs 25 "units"<br />I could turn in 25 common scrolls<br />OR<br />6 uncommon scrolls + 1 common scroll<br />OR<br />4 rare scrolls + 1 common scroll.<br /><br />Also is Gear defined as anything that is not armor, weapon, scroll, ammo, or Potion?  Would this include rings, cloaks, 1 shot weapons (alchmist fire, thunderstone), food.  <br />I ask because I can see some sorting time ahead to get ready for these new trade item tokens.<br />

<br /><br />Can't it be a fake (fantasy) gem?  Mithral doesn't exist in the real world, maybe we can make up some precious gems too.  How about Frodoium and Gygaxite  =)
