TOPIC: Curses?

Curses? 1 month 4 weeks ago #1

Will we be seeing the curses return this year? It was a fun twist that would be cool to continue in the virtual patron run and/or something like the Mirthwood passage adventure/side-quest with the effects hitting for GHC or a later virtual run.

Jeff said on a Trent interview that we might find out what they do in 7b. I don’t know anything more than that.

Token curses are awesome! Having them come from treasure draws, though, is a thing that probably only works for SkullCon where everybody is both heavily invested in the game and already getting max+2 treasure. Putting them in the general treasure mix would not be a good plan.

NPC sticker curses during the adventure are just as awesome, and IMO could easily be used to add extra entertainment value to any live dungeon (though perhaps not on Normal difficulty, or at least player-optional on Normal difficulty).

Yes, my AC is lower than the Wizard's. No regrets!

This. 100% this. If someone is only getting 3 pulls for 1 of them to be a curse might not be the greatest....

Could have curse “tokens” be handed out in dungeons! They don’t have to be in treasure pulls, or they could also be +1 treasure pulls, so they get 4! Though one is a “curse”.

It could also be specific pull boxes, such as rogue box, or a specific box, such as the “danger” box, or a “skull and crossbones” box. “This treasure be no different, except some curses abound. Yar be ready to play a role, reach ye hand in and find yer destiny, scallywag!”

Not advocating, just ideating, for meditation.

▶▶THIS IS NOT CURRENTLY A PLAN THAT IS IN THE WORKS◀◀

Hypothetical: Let's say there are two chests at Gen Con. One has the standard treasure mix with no curses and the other has curses, but a slightly (and I do mean slightly) better treasure mix.
  1. Which would you pull from?
  2. Would your answer change if the mix was the same (i.e., not better), other than the curses?
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?
Please post TDb corrections in this thread .

If it has slightly better mix (even without knowing exactly what that means) I think most on the forums are going to take the cursed chest. Because curses are desirable because they are not standard and they would be getting a better mix. If the mix was the same I still think most forumites (though this is just a guess) will go for the cursed box because it has more non-standard things in it ie the curses. NOW if the cursed box had slightly worse mix...I am not certain how the pulls would go. Because of this I don't think this option would be good because either TD would run out of the cursed box (another reason not to have separate mixes) or be stuck with a bunch.

ALL HYPOTHETICAL.

Since Curses are not transmutable to a trade good, I'd probably draw one or two runs from the cursed box, and the rest from the regular box, likely independent on whether the mix is standard or slightly increased.

This is valid. It would also dependent on how rare the curses were in the cursed box and how many there are. I also making a invalid assumption that it would be draws over 20. So anyone getting 20 or more would get a shrink wrapped pack like at SC (and VTD) and just extra pulls would be from cursed or regular box. Making those extra pulls more likely from the cursed box if you are only getting 3 to 5 more. HOWEVER if allowing someone to actually always pull from either box then I would like to revise my initial guesses....lol.

1) I'd 100% of the time pull from the box with curses and slightly better treasure
2) I'd probably still pull from the curses box, since I see Curses as a fairly neat collectible.

That said, if I were a newer player and only had a few treasure pulls per Dungeon and still had a lot of slots to fill, I'd probably avoid the Curses box.
