ISSUING A GENERAL CHALLENGE FOR ALL FORUMITES FOR 2021 2 months 3 weeks ago #1

For next gencon (likely 2021) find a new player who's only got their starting 10 pack of tokens. Find out what class they liked or want to play and give them 5 rare tokens associated with that class.

A weapon, an armor, something class specific (a wand, a bard instrument, etc) an Ioun Stone and a Charm or Back for instance.


I'd like to see how many people are willing to drop a few tokens into the hands of a new player with nothing coming back to them for doing it. Hopefully a good number of us

I bring new players in almost every year. I typically buy them each a set of tokens for the class they want to play and a cheap TE, I let them keep them if they keep playing. I pledge, if we have a real con in 2021, I will do this as well.

Been doing this for bast couple of years for my pick-up groups...

I have a case of tokens for rare Weapons, another for armor, Wands, scrolls, etc.

Usually only give a couple per person, and if I am not on a run with them, try to give to under 18’s....

Carrying three cases of tokens to cons just to give out gets heavy...

It makes me happy to see that there's others who're already doing this for newbies at cons like I do. Good on all of you ^_^

Give away most every token in 10 packs at the table to new players. Just keep the occassional UR and GP tokens and if someone I know needs a platinum to complete a set.

With treasure draws I do during the day, I go through them quick and separate out UC and R from the current year and hand them out to new player(s) that is/are standing around or sitting at a table with others getting ready for a run.

I’ll loan out tokens but not at that point to give out rares for them to keep.

speaking of the occasional UR on my second run ever saw a first timer pull a Charm of Awareness from his 10 pack and at the end pulled a CoA

Not everyone is.

This challenge is mainly for players who have an excess of rare tokens.

If you want to participate maybe select a set of 10 uncommon tokens that you feel could benefit a new player and give those out instead :)

A few years back when I had an excess of rare tokens beyond what I needed for transmutes, I made 4 or 5 current year rare builds and gave them out at GenCon to new folks that joined the forum and were trying TD for the first time. I just asked if they were not going to play again to pass it on to another new player that would.
