Can you please take a look at these?

The UR is for all $2K AG orders, while the Acorn is the "Order in November" special thank you token. The $1K Rings will now come on light purple tokens (like the light green with the Teeth of Cavadar) to match with the medium purple token of the 5-year Ring token. I forgot to do this for last year's 5th Ring.

If putting the (1/combat) text on all thrown items is going to be a new standard that seems good. It is a deviation from previous reusable thrown items that are inherently 1/combat due to being thrown I think (maybe there's something in the manual I'm not aware of).

I think it will be amusing if somebody pulls off an acorn based assassination.

Love the gib-gub reference!

Gib Gub's Handy Acorn

Very messy. Isn't (may be thrown) the standard? Drop one of the "use"s. I don't care a lot, but this would make more sense as something like an Averon's Cherry Bomb type token rather than a compound, FoB, edible, one use thing.

+2 Grunnel's Pointy Stick

Clerics don't get pointy weapons. To not prevent them from running it, maybe make it look less pointy. I'm not a fan of the ability. It's a limited distribution token and I get why it is what it is, but it just comes across like using a Wish Ring for a wish.

Ring of the Fourth Circle

This is noticeable worse than Ring of Stamina. Now, Ring of the Fifth Circle didn't have some amazing ability, but it did have a UR level ability. This is barely a rare level ability. Is there a plan for what the final Ring will look like? If not, not a lot of Regen in the game, could be a new Ring of Regeneration.

Agree with Ian on the ring of the 4th circle. If it needs to be hp based, +1 regen is interesting, or make it 6hp so it’s 1hp better than the ring of stamina.

Ring of the 4th Circle - I love the new color on the ring, but agree it should be at least as powerful as Wil's Charm at +4, regardless of what it is going to transmute into. Or +2/3 and +1 regen.

Gib Gub's Handy Acorn - I think we can remove a lot of words here, as this is essentially a shuriken combined with a turkey leg:

(Monk can use 2/round)
1 use per combat

May be eaten (turned in) to heal 7 pts

With regen, I would potentially use it, depending on the ring of wonder bonus for the year. At present, it just goes in the binder to be forgotten until Voltron ring is ready to be assembled.

Agreed on the ring. A lot depends on what the final transmute is, but regen seems fitting and more special without breaking anything.

I love the Grunnel stick and GibGub acorns though, it's a fantastic nod to our VTD shenanigans :)

I don't really have a strong opinion on the ring, unless it's stronger than it should be I have other things to fill my slots. I'll just be sitting on one for a few years till the transmute, just like the last three shirts.

I love the nod to Gib Gub and Grunnel. I may have to get one of each of those just for that. They aren't very strong, but they're not supposed to be. They succeed on being fun.

Ring of the 4th Circle should have 2023 magnifying glasses, not 2022 pirate hooks.

Jeff, at first thought I thought maybe the Pointy Stick should have the Elixir of Life power instead of Potion of Death's Door when turned in, but there are going to be so many of them, PoDD is more appropriate.
