The TDb description used to say the roll was made during "training" which, admittedly, was ambiguous. It now more accurately says during "coaching" because the die, as it always has been done, will be rolled before filling out your spot on the party card.


Note to self: bring a D6 to coaching shifts.

Easier then you think to rig a dice like that, just sandpaper down the 1,2,3 point. For plastic dice you can also microwave them with the 6 side up for about 2 minutes to shift any internal air bubbles towards the top. Not that I would know about such things :whistle:

I will attempt to summarize this, Pelor help me...

For 2014, when either equipping an actual Amulet of Wonder or under the AoW effect, you roll a die to determine the effect:

  1. +2 to AC
  2. +3 to AC
  3. +3 To Hit on all attack slides
  4. +10 to max HP
  5. Horn of Plenty effect (three Treasure Chips per stamp)
  6. +1 Character level for that adventure
However:
  • If your character is both 5th-level and under a HoP-like effect*, if you roll either 5 or 6, reroll until you roll 1-4.
  • If your character is 4th level and you've got a HoP-like effect* and you roll a 5, it counts as a 6 (you get to play at 5th-level)
  • If your character is 5th level but you don't have a HoP-like effect* and you roll a 6, it counts as a 5 (you get the HoP effect)
Is there any permutation, combination, or convolution that doesn't cover?


*whether from equipping a actual Horn of Plenty, being on a Golden Ticket run, under the influence of an artifact, or anything that grants three Treasure Chips per Treasure Stamp


Im sorry, one last wrinkle; do we have to decide on all equipment before rolling? Since this will mostly come up with my parties where we can all roll, and if we have a total of five HoP, give them to the people who didnt roll 5 or 6.


oh, and another clarification: 'phantom' characters (when a player wears more than one wrist-band so the party can run with fewer players) are allowed to equip treasure tokens and party enhancers (synergy, etc). will we be allowed to equip those phantom characters with an AoW to try for the HoP effect? and can they 'wear' a +1 level item to double chances at the HoP?
my opinion: phantoms should be allowed to wear an AoW and roll for the chance, wearing anything else should be a 'no'...because that could start to open up a lot of issues/questions/etc. but I will happily give my phantom a charm of heroism to double the chance if it is allowed.


Instead of equiping the phantom characters with AoW, equip the phantom with the HOP/RoR/CoGF and then for yourself equip the +1 level and AoW so you have a 2/6 chance at getting a HOP on you.

Everyone must be new or has a bad memory. It is not a regular dice that is rolled.
Jeff and company made a die for the previous rolls( 2010 etc).

I think they are using magical thinking, lol. I would like to find over-sized icosahedrons that aren't of the 'spindown' variety so rolling for initiative and attacks were more random.

The token DB says:

This token’s effect is different each year. Inquire with your coach at the beginning of the adventure for the current effect.

So the info is not released ahead of time.

When will we find out the effect for 2014 TrueGrind for Amulet of Wonder? I'm debating it versus Medallion of Greyhawk.

HAH!

Half of the coaches don't know the damned effect, either.
Blimey!
