TOPIC: Incentive to help coaches create party card

Incentive to help coaches create party card 1 year 2 weeks ago #1

Currently, each player gets a +1 HP if they have their character on the app, printed out, or something similar.

I suggest the following to really create an incentive to help coaches out: treat the app similar to a charm of synergy: for every player that has their character already generated (app, print out, etc.), it's a +1 HP for each member. So, if 5 people have their characters on apps, they each get +5 HP.

This, in my opinion, will also create a cohesive unit in the party for the times when it's more "random Janes". More experienced players will have an incentive to talk to the new people, get their stats on an app, etc. etc.

Thoughts?

I would suggest letting the coaches work on getting the party cards filled out correctly.....had multiple instances of missing saves/set bonuses all while using the app.

I feel like the potential to add 10hp per party member would a little much. Thats basically a full UR level charm of synergy bonus.

we have no control if the app/ss/website is correct. We are told they are. We dont double check those. That is someone else.

Excellent point Picc.

I also think the issue is not about incentive, it's about getting the word out. The overwhelming majority of TD players have never set foot in the forums or read the PHB. We could offer +10 Treasure Chips and they wouldn't know about the pre-calculated stat bonus.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

Hmm. If this is the case, then how should the word get put out? Would a FAQ / Guide poster be useful? It could be placed next to the poster of this years tokens at each of the cons. Perhaps something else?

We post all kinds of things that players don't read. Including the new laminated sheet of information in this years coaching rooms.

Most new players don't have enough tokens to be a coaching challenge. Most hardcore veterans use one of character generators. It's the in betweeners with a goodly number of tokens but no methods for organizing that present challenges.

How about the coaches just tell them? Shelly does that when she’s coaching Grind. If someone shows up with a pile of tokens, she offers them her phone to enter their build, or tells them they can download and use one. Either way they get free HP. And she moves on to someone who has already used their own.

That may not work so good in the dungeon, but after a couple of years almost all the “frequent flyers” show up with an app or a printout.

I think we could have much more signage in the coaching rooms, especially for when the party is there before the coach is there. It could mention this type of thing, and perhaps some could try it out right there on the spot.

This would require reliable wi-fi or cell service to either access tdcharactercreator or download the app.
Definitely at some locations, highly unlikely at GenCon.

I just wish I could print out the party card full size and just turn that in!

1. What is the size of the paper? 8.5 x 17?
2. Would TD accept a party card that is printed?

As for the bonuses - I would still have a party card filled out, it just makes the coaches life easier.

Cheers,

Agreed in general. For me, Verizon worked just fine at GenCon, but other services I understand aren't usable.
