I also believe it will be an entire TD season before they are redeemable due to
Fairness to everyone having an opportunity to pull at every Con. We are all well aware of the stink that will be raised by someone who only attends 1 Con.
Also TD would have to have different treasure mixes for different Con’s and that idea has already been discussed too throughly

still sounds like they would need to be turned it at GC so I don’t know how fairness would play in that. If not then how is fairness when someone would be able to turn them in at Origins before other cons. Because of this I don’t th-ink there is any fairness factor involved. You could be correct that it is next year, count me as doubtful.

We have precedence of past tokens having to be turned in the same year they appeared. Lore tokens in 2010, and Treasure Map Fragments and Treasure Maps in 2011. I can't remember a more recent example though, so while it has happened, it has been a while.

A few random thoughts

1. I love things like this and its a load of fun to read these posts and speculate on what this all might mean
2. The state naming convention sounds like the easiest to use to me. If we just number them I'm certain to get the numbers mixed up, but they do loosely resemble states, so that would help remember which is which.
3. It's very much a mystery on where this will end up. On one hand, these were almost as easy to get as 2019 monster bits. (Not really, but it almost seemed like it at times). Given that, it might not be anything too valuable. But then again, they did put "relic" in the title which automatically sets expectations and anything short of that level is going to disappoint a number of people. Taking into account both the title and level of token rarity, it would make sense that the recipe will eventually include a number of trade goods.
4. I like the eye slot theory. It is overdue.

Well, keep posting the theories and thanks TD for keeping up the fun level of this game.

Like what you have here but i think the numbers should keep going in clockwise order. So swap numbers 4 and 6.


I numbered them this way to stay consistent with what had been posted so far in the thread. I agree clockwise would have been simpler but I didnt want to create another naming scheme that could cause confusion.

Seems unlikely that Jeff would staff a volunteer over there just for this, but maybe?


If the full year to collect theory hold "bring where the start" could refer to the "Origins" of the fragment tokens (also the start of the adventuring season) at origins next year.

Agreed I did the same as him. The 6 pieces form a nice rectangle.

See attachment


Since we now have a good look at all of the "possible" relic fragments should we come to a consensus with labeling these so we can making communicating trades easier?

using Jeff321's photo with all combined we can understand their configuration.




My question is should we try to come up with a agreed upon symbolism for each token or given that we have their configuration go with a numerical clockwise or left to right - upper lower method.

I will preface this by saying I am all in for a named method. There are many who see their own symbology like a rorschach test. I would hate to see much time spent deliberating the nuance of the image on the token and how it makes us feel versus quickly labeling the tokens for identification. I feel this method can be successful if a consensus can be reached quickly and adopted just as such.

other ideas

Numerical Method 1 - Clockwise

Given the image above we could do a clockwise numbering starting in the Upper left corner

example:

123
654

Numerical Method 2 - Hollywood Squares

using a upper row / lower row we can move left to right. Starting in the upper row left hand corner (UL)

UL - UM - UR = 1 - 2 - 3
LL - LM - LR = 4 - 5 - 6


I would like to hear your thoughts so we can get to trading!


Of those two, I like Hollywood Squares. :)

There will always, Always, ALWAYS be a number of people who are disappointed, no matter what we do.

yeah the "hollywood squares" method makes the most sense to me, since it is basically reading from upper left to lower right based on the diagram of how they fit together...that gets my vote ;)
