I remember the old maps. But they only gave one draw, not ten, from a special mix. I think I got a wooden 5gp as one of them.

I'd recommend another +1 non-stackable Rare TE token. I think there should be one every year. Although, a reprint of Lenses of Fortune would be fine also.

What I'm discussing would be different from the old maps. The basic idea would be for a party to be able to consume 1 map per run so all maps would eventually be used up, the map to not be useful for full COA parties since they already get max treasure, and for the treasure to come from the normal system so Jeff and co dont have to bring special mix that could get confused.

Basically it would be a team building thing that could happen in coaching that would raise the floor without raising the ceiling. It would also be cool to hit a pug and be like ok everyone gets an extra treasure since we as a party are going to follow this map. Just an idea though.

Few more thoughts

Charm of deep magic: limited to casters: You may attempt another class’s skill test in place of yours. The results of the test are unchanged.
So a druid could use the wizard chart for example.

Figurine of Power: Eagle : +4 to hit with your next attack before sliding (1/game)
based on the FOP bat

Beryl Band: +1 to all saves

Ring of Ranger: Outsiders are added to your favored enemies (we could do one of these every few years for whatever type of creature is more appropriate)


I would also love to see Scroll Mage Armor get a reprint

I recommend holding off on a non-stackable Rare TE. Just because there is one in 2019. Thus far they have been every other year. 2015, 2017 and 2019. So 2021 should be the next one. Just my 2 cents.

I’d be okay with a new one in any year we add a new convention and possibly a quantum influx of newbies. Their chances of getting one outside of the secondary market are otherwise zero.

But I don’t have strong feelings either way.

I understand the two year cycle for Ultra Rares, but it does make sense to me to have a TE Rare every year since there will be a lot of new players each year. Maybe just reprint the one from the year before if we don't want a new one each year?

Ever year would be nice for new players to pull out of a booster. That way they can get the reward at the end of the adventure and they "get" it. That said, I would like to see them moved out to the less precious slots, like charm or ioun stone, so if they get a uncommon helm in their booster, they don't need to decide which to use. This is why I suggested the Ioun Stone Copper Nugget.

I think it is mostly because we only have 40 rare slots and devoting 1 every year (without adding a huge new playerbase of a new con) means that rare players have the increased potential to get a useless rare. I don't feel strongly about this. I just figured we have been doing it every other year and no one has complained so it makes sense to keep doing it that way. Don't mess with what works imo.

I agree
Every other year seems about right. Lenses are getting harder to come by, but cloak of many pockets are everywhere.

For the vast majority of new players, just getting a 10 pack of tokens, they probably wouldn't see the TE token as useless.

I think it's good sometimes to challenge the status quo instead of just going with the way it's always been. :)
