If you have not yet acquainted yourself with the wonder that is tokendb.com please do so.

It's a great source of information on all things token.

Welcome to TD and welcome to our forum community. The head honcho of TD, Jeff Martin, even thanked you for your post (up on post #5). So I think you're on to a great start.

If you live in Columbus that's awesome because you're relatively close to the different venues TD has been going to lately. Meaning you can hit up more than one Con. I'm a little jealous because it's a bit farther for me, meaning I have to pick just one.

Food for thought on binging props into the dungeon, is that you have to consider where you're going to put it as you combat slide, and do puzzles. Also if you're always putting it down, then you might forget it in a room. It's easy to do.

Woah, I didn't even realize that was the big head honcho. It's cool that Jeff is personally involved on the forums.

I've been crawling all over TokenDB and TDTavern. As a web/database designer myself, I'm thinking about making a "collection" site to keep track of tokens owned that maybe polls the info from TokenDB.

As for the prop thing, I realized that carrying my bag around my runs. My plan is for a weapon prop that I can put either in a belt frog, or some form of back strap. I'm planning for the prop itself to also hold my weapon token ;)

Before building something that polls TokenDB, I would strongly suggest getting in contact with Druegar (the keeper of the site).

I manage developers (web, desktop, mobile, etc.), and I'm considering doing the same thing. I'm thinking of a website and mobile app (or just a responsive site), because from a collecting point of view, there's nothing out there to help me keep track of everything.

And I have a lot to keep track of!

Presumably he used this:
tokendb.com/token/charm-of-avarice/

There are several forum members on here that are selling them. Ask around and don't be afraid to offer a price lower than posted. The seller may decline, but in my experience it never hurts to ask.


Wade is correct. My first legendary transmute, plus the Silver Nugget UR from this year.

I picked a path and got lucky along the way, thanks to Raven and Kirk mostly. Treasure makes the ticket price worth it for me, the fun and games and stupid singing is what keeps me coming back.

Seeing a brand new player base develop, though, was amazing to see. So looking forward to it developing.

As for the treasure enhancements, though, others have said the Amulet of Treasure Finding is great. Those are relatively affordable. I would then suggest a Charm of Good Fortune, and grab the Silver Nugget UR now or next year. All of those would add 6 to 8 pulls depending on how many other CoGFs or Charm of Avarices there are in your group. Then maybe work your way towards one of the Avarice recipes over the coming years.

Although, you might be better off saving up and making an offer to one of the sellers. :)

I'm glad you had a great time. Maybe I'll get to meet you at GenCon

Re props: I'd suggest you reconsider bringing a weapon in the dungeon. If you go forward, please be mindful of the dark, cramped quarters. I'm even leery of people wearing backpacks. They tend to turn around and forget there's a one-foot bump strapped to their back. Getting knocked down is not fun, accidentally or not. I'd hate getting thwacked or impaled even more.

When planning your props, think "crowded elevator." And make sure it complies with Con rules for cosplay weapons.

I was going to get a nerf mace to carry while wearing my chainmail shirt, but decided it's really not worth the trouble.

Oh man, that would be sweet to have. I'm afraid I've spent too much on other tokens though to be able to offer anything close to a decent price on those, and I wouldn't want to low-ball someone just because I'm a (now) broke newbie.

One day though. I'd gladly unequip my Charm of Health to equip that monster of tokens.


Remember everyone can equip up to 3 charms and 5 ioun stones. There are even some items which allow you to equip more than that.

I currently, through draws, trading, and buying of tokens, have equipped a:
  • Charm of Health
  • Charm of Heroism
  • Fiendish Charm

And
  • Ioun Stone Charming Cabochon
  • Ioun Stone Garnet Cube
  • Ioun Stone Beryl Prism
  • Ioun Stone Emerald Prism
  • Ioun Stone Lodestone Sphere

The Emerald Prism and Lodestone Sphere I definitely feel I could change out. Though if I get any of treasure enhancers, I'll have to swap out my Cloak of Many Pockets as well.
