Isn't that 2 too many? 2 for E1, 2 for E2, 2 for E3, 1 for Grind?

What are the other 2 for? Special completion tokens for the GT run?


I believe that Odens Redux has 2 as well

I think It likely has only one, as Odin's Redux can only be run on normal or non-lethal

True - so there is one extra completion token for Gen Con.

Maybe for the GT runs?

In days of yore, quite long before
The humans came to plunder more

I think we all are in agreement this basically says "A long time ago"
it is interesting that the humans came to plunder not players adventures (too many syllables)

A relic forged from goods of trade
By ancient hands the thing was made

I think we have been assuming it is a relic token. A relic though could be anything old, especially since it was originally made by ancient hands. So possibly something we haven’t made but those before us made (maybe Jeff or his players before TD)...maybe

Alas, for now, the method’s gone
To craft this fine phenomenon

However it was made can be made this way currently. It is one thing though as it is a fine phenomenon.

‘Twas fractured by a hand of bronze
And now it’s just some polygons

Was the method of crafting it fractured or was the relic itself fractured? Bronze could be the complexion on the hand.

When days are long and three stars bright
Summer. 3 stars bright. Could be night time stars, could be famous people, could something in the shape of star.

The Dark Knight comes with special sight
Batman or a literal dark colored knight. A Dark Night. Special sight could refer to the Knight’s ability to see or sight it will bestow. It could be a pun of site as in a website.

For bringing forth the pieces all
If you connect this to a special site for bring forth the pieces all it sounds like it could be the transmuted page of the website to me as it is the page for showing required ingredients.

To eldest place before the fall
eldest place could be the Hyatt, could be carbondale. fall could be autumn, a waterfall, or someone’s defeat or failure as in downfall.

So gather now your goods abound
Get the stuff you need

And bring them where the start be found
The start of TD? the start of an adventure?

A myst’ry now that was foretold
Anyone remember a mystery that we were previously told about?

With time, that knowledge shall unfold
Stay tuned because we will get more clues/answers.


I’m not going to trim as I’m on a phone.

What if sight is website.
Darkest night is the eclipse.
With time, that knowledge shall unfold is the transmuted recipe including the fragments.
myst’ry Is just the space in the QTR.

I like where your heads at Jedi, keep it up.

On the topic of eclipses, the event at the winery for true celebration. That winery was the best spot to see the total solar eclipse in the north hemisphere on Aug 27 2017. It's a solar eclipse not a lunar but just spitballing.

I don't think we have any info to expect a solar or a lunar at this point. But good memory.

I wonder if this is referring to the Charm of Avarice?

‘Twas fractured by a hand of bronze
And now it’s just some polygons


Which previously was a RELIC but was replaced with the current LEGENDARY version. The RELIC was broken by a Bronze Hand (Legendary Token Color?)


Nice thinking. That fits kind of well. Maybe we have been overlooking the "plunder more" clue. That does fit with treasure enhancing.

Could Duergar be the bronze hand? He trashed two of my CoA at WYC as part of the turn in process.

No idea why he would be hands of bronze.

He is from California so his skin is sun kissed???? lol.

For some reason my brain has always thought of scissors when hand of bronze is mentioned. I think the bronze hand might just be just to make the poem flow well (and rhyme with polygons). Could be wrong of course but never felt that important who destroyed the old relic or recipe for the old relic.
