Token Database


Use to research any question regarding Treasure Tokens you may need answered.  It has some useful search and filter functions that allow you to find just the info you want.  For instance, you can see a listing of all Rare two-handed weapons or you can see something very specific like a listing of all 2012-minted, Rare two-handed weapon tokens that are only usable by Barbarians that have "fire" in the token description.

Amorgen's Excellent Excel Character Generator:  This is a highly useful spreadsheet that allows you to equip any of the 12 standard character classes with allowable tokens -- and then instantly see how these tokens affect the character's combat stats.  This is a neat tool to figure out how to equip your character with the tokens you have in hand -- as well as see what effect additional tokens might have on your character's survivability.

TD Character Creator:  This NEW website is a great way to equip your character -- and your entire party.  Much like Amorgen's tool above, this program does all the calcuations for you.  

Cogwind's Character Generator for iDevices or Character Generator for Android:  This app features many of the same features as Amorgen's spreadsheet but in application form.


Cogwind's Revenge for iPad: We are pleased to announce the release of Cogwind's Revenge, an iPad app inspired by the 2014 True Dungeon modules Golembane and Flight of the Zephyr.  It has puzzles to test your wits, combat to test your skill, and even the fun of token collecting.  Download this free app from iTunes and relive the adventure!

After you have downloaded and read the Players Handbook (especially if you are a DM or Coach!), then the next thing you want to look at is the various character cards.  

This year there are three different Character Class Cards available.  One card is the 4th level version of the character, one is the 5th level version of the character, and the final version are the very rare Rod of Seven Parts cards (sub-class cards).  To use the 5th level cards, you must possess either a Trio of Might items, a Ring of Heroism or a Charm of Heroism.  To use the Rod of Seven Parts cards, you have to possess a Rod of Seven Parts Eldrtich token.

Below are all the 4th level character cards.  Look for other articles to see the 5th level and Rod of Seven Parts cards.

These are the 5th level Character Cards. A player must either equip a "Heroism" token or a set of tokens which increase a character's level to use these cards.

These are the rare Rod of Seven Parts character cards.  They can only be used once per year by a lucky token collector who possesses a complete Rod of Seven Parts Eldritch token.  Most DMs and Coaches will only see a handful of these cards ever year, and these players usually run together in the same group.

Player Token Mat

Every player begins their adventure within a Coaching Room, and they use one of these 11" x 17" token mats to help equip their character. It's a handy tool to help you plan out your character's token builld.
