Trade Token Redemption

There is an option available in the TD Store to "order" one or more Trade tokens. This "ordering" is not actually buying the specific tokens (which is NOT possible), it just starts the process for collectors to convert extra tokens into Trade tokens. The website will guide collectors through the online forms, print out an address label & packing slip, listing of the quantities of tokens to be shipped to TD, and a list of the Trade tokens the player expects to have mailed back. All of this is then mailed to TD HQ. Your transaction will be processed 1-2 business days after it's received. There will be a flat $5.00 shipping fee for all shipments. If you wish to purchase new tokens as well as send in old tokens to be converted to Trade, TS will gladly ship both lots simultaneously for the same $5.00 rate.

You can only get Trade tokens by using the online ordering system. Trade tokens will no longer be available during Gen Con. Mail-in Trade redemptions will cease for a brief period immediately before and after Gen Con each year. The exact dates for the mail-in blackout period will be posted as we get closer to Fall. Other than the aforementioned blackout period, Trade tokens may be redeemed year-round.

All orders sent to collectors will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail with Confirmation Delivery service within 1-2 business days, and the order should arrive within 1-3 business days once shipped. We may occasionally run out of stock, but if that happens we will notify you of the delay and expected restock date.

We highly recommend you send us your Trade token shipment with some kind of tracking! True Adventures, Ltd. is NOT responsible for any tokens lost in the mail while in route to TD HQ.

Below is the list of all currently available Trade tokens and which tokens are required to make them.  Some of the Trade Tokens require 25 "units" of tokens to make one Trade Token.  These 25 units are determined by the formula below:

Unit Conversion:
Rare = 6 units
Uncommon = 3 units
Common = 1 unit

For example:

  • 25 Common tokens (of a certain type) makes 25 units
  • 8 Uncommon tokens + 1 Common token makes 25 units
  • 2 Rare tokens + 3 Uncommon tokens + 4 Common tokens make 25 units

Alchemist's Ink: 25 units of any Potion, Elixir, Salve, or Oil



Alchemist's Parchment: 25 units of any Scroll



Aragonite: 25 of any Rare Weapon and/or Armor

For the purpose of converting to Trade tokens, "weapon" does not include: arrows, bolts, bullets, or sling stones

For a complete list of which tokens are considered a "weapon" or "armor", please reference the Trade Token Worksheet.



Darkwood Plank: 25 units of any Gear and/or Item

In general, if a token does not fit in any of the other categories and is eligible for exchange, it goes in the Darkwood Plank category.

Frequently Asked Questions


Let's say I have the following to trade in for several Philosopher's Stones:

12 Rare Rings, etc (12 X 6 pts = 72pts)
1 Uncommon Ring (3pts)
Total 75, or 3 Stones

How should these tokens be bagged as it's not an easy division of tokens for each into 25 pts?

Answer: Please try to avoid this situation if possible. If you cannot, in the above example please place 24 pts of tokens separately in 3 bags, and then place the left-over 3 pts token in a separate non-labeled bag. Then, take all four bags and place them together in a larger ziplock bag. This is how we will know that this special case has occurred.


When is the cut-off date for sending in tokens for exchange prior to a convention?

We MUST receive your shipment two weeks before the start of the convention if you want to receive it back before that convention. All orders RECEIVED less than two weeks before a convention will be processed around a week after we return from that convention.


Can I send more than one of the same type of transmute in the same bag?

  • Example: Enough tokens to make 3 of the trade tokens for Dwarven Steel in one bag? Or do I need to break them down into 3 bags?

Answer: It depends on the type of Trade Tokens you're exchanging.

  • Standard: For all weapon and/or armor Trade tokens (Dwarven Steel, Minotaur Hide, Elven Bismuth, Oil of Enchantment, and Aragonite), please place them in separate bags. To make 3 Dwarven Steel tokens, you would need 3 different ziplock bags, each containing 25 Common weapon tokens.
  • Optional: For all point-based Trade tokens (Alchemist's Ink, Alchemist's Parchment, Darkwood Plank, Enchanter's Munition, Minotaur Hide, Mystic Silk, and Philosopher's Stone), you may put exactly 25 Uncommons ("×3") or exactly 25 Rares ("×6") in a single bag, but they must be marked accordingly. Let's say you're submitting a single bag of 25 Rare jewelry tokens, thus ordering 6 Philosopher's Stone tokens. Take 1 (one) Philosopher's Stone label and manually write "×6" on it. Take that single "Philosopher's Stone ×6" slip and place it in the bag (text side facing out so it can be easily read) of 25 Rare jewelry tokens. If you were to submit 25 Uncommon jewelry items, you'd write "×3" on the Philosopher's Stone slip. Please do not put multiple slips in a bag.
    • Please do not utilize this optional method if you have mixed rarities in the bag or with any quantity of tokens other than 25. This means, for example, do not put 23 Uncommons and 1 Rare in a bag. If you don't have exactly 25 Rares of the same category or exactly 25 Uncommons of the same category, please use the standard bagging method of one Trade token per bag
  • When submitting tokens to be exchanged for Trade items, please do not put more than 25 tokens in a single snack-size bag. It slows down the verification process and the bags tend to split.

We ask you to follow these procedures to speed up the fulfillment process and make it much more error-free.


Can I send in for more than one Transmuted Token in one shipment to TD?

  • Example 1 : From above, if they have to be seperate bags, can I stick many ziplock bags into one box?
  • Example 2 : I have one of every type of Trade Token, each in their own bag, can I stick that in one box?

Answer: Yes.  You can put any number of different kinds of ziplock bags in any Small Flat Rate box. Just be sure the appropriate printed-out label is placed inside each bag.

Can I send in a token with charges if there are no charges remaining?

Answer: No. Charged items (e.g., wands printed before 2018, Ioun Stone Violet Prism, etc.) with no remaining charges may not be exchanged. If there is at least one charge left, it may be exchanged--as long as it was exchangable to begin with.

If I'm trading in for say Improved Ring of Evasion and I intend on making the trade items in the same shipment (toward the ring). Do I fill out both sections or just one? IE Just the ring, or both the ring and the trade items I'm making for it as well?

So you want to make an Improved Ring of Evasion, but you don't have all the required tokens to do that now. You want to send in a bunch of tokens to make those Ingredient tokens, and then apply those tokens to make the Improved Ring of Evasion.

Unfortunately, the process has been designed to eliminate errors and confusion which leads to collectors upset with us because we don't agree with the multi-staged process the collector has in their head. Instead, we have made the Exchange program a step-by-step process where you must gather the exact recipe tokens before sending in for that new token. So, in this case, you would have to send in for all the Trade and Reserve tokens you need for the recipe, and then make a second shipment with those exact recipe tokens to get the Improved Ring of Evasion.

We realize this situation is not a perfect one, but we feel strongly that this is the best way to go moving forward. We want to avoid, if possible, situations where collectors and TD come into conflict because of complicated token exchanges.

We realize it costs more in shipping this way (for both of us), but we think an orderly exchange program is the best way to go.
