Edited: finally noticed that each weekend only has 1 dungeon available so there probably aren't enough instances of merging shipping for any sort of extra benefit for merging to be adequately beneficial for the complexity

This is maybe more work than it's worth, but with shipping built into the ticket price and I imagine most veterans trying to get tickets to both events (or some getting multiple tickets to individual events), would it be reasonable to provide some sort of benefit to people that have shipping combined?

A 10 pack is basically the same price as shipping so tossing in an extra 10 pack for each extra run result merged into a single box perhaps? Alternatively $8 store credit would be even better, but I suspect a lot more effort than just tossing in an extra pack (and I don't actually know if the store even supports holding extra credit currently).

Will the turnaround be quick as usual?

I fear the process might be slow since there's so much work to do at HQ.


Turn around is still fast. I am making my son do them now...and since the office is air conditioned, he is well motivated to stay out of the hot workshop!

Q: Can I use consumable (potion, scroll, etc.) tokens? A: Yes. Since you cannot turn them in to the DM, you can either dispose of the token(s) or you can place the token(s) in a special envelope labeled “Jeff made me give this to you”. You have to bring the envelop to your next live TD event and then you have to give it to a new player.


Should we do separate envelopes per run? Or will some lucky new player get a whole seasons' worth of my consumables? :) (I'm fine either way, just wondering the intended direction)

How does this sound?

Q. How will the 5th level Rogue's Power "Flank" by handled in VTD? A. Once per combat, instead of attacking during a combat round, rogues may declare they are flanking. The Rogue then names one of the other characters, and that person gets to make three attack roles -- taking the best of the three as their one roll result. The naming of the character must be done before that character has taken an action that round.

For the Rogue Flank ability, how about "Once per combat, instead of attacking during a combat round, Rogues may Flank. All attack slides of "1" this round are automatically re-slid." ?

The reslides can either be once per player or continue until a non-1 result is slid, based on which would be easier to code into the app.


Edit: Very similar to Jeff's post at the same time as mine, apparently.
I play Rogue. Occasionally I even play Rogue well.

I'm no rogue, but that sounds good to me.

I like this, and it aligns very well with the Advantage/Disadvantage systems in D&D 5e.

Looks good. Easy to understand and significantly improves chance of a single crit.

Jeff, that sounds great. I think you were responding to a different post though, and I'm interested in what you think of this post. An extra pack of tokens for each instance of combined shipping sounds good to me, it seems like one shipment and 9 extra packs of tokens would cost less than 10 packages shipped. But, you probably don't need to add incentives, since most people combining shipment are probably going to do it anyway.

A separate envelope for each consumable used! I could see someone going around with a Santa sized bag over their shoulder tossing envelopes to everyone. ;)
