I'm not following what you are proposing. Please elaborate.

Looks like a way to gain psychic power tiers now that teeth aren't as readily available. It's a rare, so easy to get, but burns a charm slot instead of being slotless like the teeth. Putting 500GP on it gives it a use for people who aren't interested in psychic powers


Yup basically this. Just a way to open up psychic power builds to rare only players in the "post tooth" era XD, a was said above the gp value was just to make them not useless to those not interested. Plus doing something like this with one of the gp slots wouldn't take away any existing design space from other rares.

Ghost pirate totem paint same effect one of the wondering ghosts maybe for a different slot.

boots of ogre power +1 str, maybe with a monk attack wheel.

Ogre set, wear 3 ogre power items get +4 hp, they're not hard to get and it might be a fun way to introduce newer players to older token traders after our long absence from physical.

Weighted net same as the woodie, I'd just like to see it get a chippie it's still a good token and nets are on theme for a pirate year.

A Rare / Uncommon / Common "Crew" synergy cycle.

Captain's Doublet (Torso)
You're a Captain
+6 to AC
+1 to AC for each "Mate" or "Sailor" in the party (max 9)

Usable by: Cleric, Fighter, Paladin

Mate's Doublet (Torso)
You're a Mate
+2 to AC
+1 to AC for each "Sailor" in the party (max 4)
+1 to melee damage if there is a Captain in the party
Usable by: All but Monk and Wizard

Usable by: All

Sailor's Shirt (Torso)
You're a Sailor
+1 to AC
+1 to melee damage if there is a Captain in the party
+1 to melee to-hit if there is a Mate in the party
Usable by: All

--

If this happens, you could imagine other "crew" related tokens like:

Cook's Cap - You're a sailor. +1 Max HP. All Captains, Mates, and Sailors get +1 Max HP

Lookout's Spyglass - You're a sailor. +1 to party initiative for each Captain, Mate, and Sailor in the party (Max 3)

And so on.

Rapier of focus. Give some spell power to the bards. Or even a 5th level ranger's cure spell.

Some more scroll damage would be welcome, perhaps a hat or gloves?

A functional reprint of Belt of the Brave, to make this highly desirable effect at Rare available to all.

(Just as Shoes of Shocking Step were functionally reprints after Completion only Boots of Inferno Step)

I think this is both a terrible and a great idea.

Terrible because BotB is to powerful for the rarity. What is the next UR Str / melee belt if BotB stays? Can't reprint any of the existing URs without every feedback thead being "but BotB". You also can't ever realistically reprint Belt of Ogre power or Belt of the Beserker either.

Its a great idea because it would allow for a nerf to be present as part of the reprint and allow an exchange. In this case, I'd recommend putting the driectly named "belt of the brave" in the set, but print it as "+2 hit / +2 damage with rare weapons"

Whip of the Kraken
On hit: -2 to target AC for 1 round
Damage wheel: 1-2-3-4 I guess
Usable by all classes (like the 2014 whip)

At the rare level maybe this could be +1 Whip and go for 2-3-4-5, it's hard to know how to balance the -AC effect as there aren't a ton of comparisons.

It is sort of like Seylah's, but repeated hits from the same player don't stack on AC reduction. Idea is it would basically look like a tentacle and the AC reduction is due to suckers on the tentacle interfering with the enemy movement (so on the off chance there is an enemy with freedom of movement, I guess it could be marked as immune to this effect in the room writeup). I would see hits from multiple players stacking up to the normal limit of -6 to the stat but that might be too much.

If it seems too strong, it could be weakened by requiring the wielder to forego their attack the next round (which would make sense as the whip is theoretically still attached to the target). At that point I'm not sure even for pug groups it would be a particularly desirable option (other than thematically).

Image would maybe be a relatively thin squid tentacle with at least some of the suckers side visible.
