Please post your ideas for Rare 2025 tokens here.
If you'd like to see a previous Rare reprinted, please make that request in the Reprint Requests thread, not in this thread.

Special Request: When referencing previous tokens, please spell them out rather than using initialisms. Not everyone is familiar with that they mean. If you want to spell them out and then use an initialism in the same paragraph, that's cool, as long as it's clear what you're talking about. E.g., "Charm of Avarice (CoA) is cool token. I hope I can make a CoA soon." is totally fine whereas, "I'd rather see BoGS reprinted than GoGA" is unintelligible to many people.

We're keeping next year's theme a secret for just a bit. But if you want to get the scoop on what it's going to be, make sure you watch Trent interview Jeff on Saturday, January 27 at 6:00 pm EST.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?
Please post TDb corrections in this thread .

I think it's time we start making some set bonuses that are achievable for our red players. Perhaps a set for some of the basic classes that give them some basic competencies and a set bonus ability that would complement the class. Example:
Paladins: Set Bonus for AC
Fighters: Set Bonus for +dmg
Cleric: Set Bonus for +heals
Druid/Wizards: Set Bonus for +spell dmg
Etc

I think we could use a Rare Runestone that adds +1 damage regardless of weapon rarity again, like Endgame's idea.
I also like Zealot Brew making a return, or perhaps some potion that grants a bonus to Focus for the room? Or maybe a potion that gives some damage reduction against retribution damage.

I'd like to see a few +1 to hit Runestones. They could be melee or ranged.

Bardic instrument “battle ax” or “battle lute.”
A guitar or lute that can be wielded as a 2 handed weapon. Think like the fae blowgun flute but melee. Low damage whell, +1 melee weapon that can be used as a weapon whithput stopping bardsong.
What do we want? Evidence based science! When do we want it? After peer review!

Here's a crazy idea:
Let's add some Red Set Bonuses this year and toss in some class-specific sets. The Bonuses they confer would be nonstat-based but confer abilities you CANNOT get otherwise. or maybe an ability that one of the prestige classes gets but only once/game?

Example:
Fighter(s) set (armor, shield, weapon, helm). Bonus: Lets you do a double attack once/game (2nd attack) OR Twist the Blade 1/game.

Rogue Set (some tinker tool esc item, weapon, shoes, armor) Bonus: Let's you bypass the rogue box check 1/game OR Assassinate ability 1/monster (must declare like sneak attack).

Druid/Wizard Set: (Weapon, Cloak, Helm, Ring): Let's you cast one of the Illusionist spells for free 1/game (Hyptnotic pattern?) Pick the spell they can cast but let them tap into things they couldnt get otherwise
etc etc.

The idea here is to make new and lower level players feel SPECIAL and UNIQUE while not forcing them to spend thousands of dollars - also this might give existing players some pause on to builds.

Just a thought.

How would this work? A necklace that takes the neck slot but gives you + 1 neck slot ?

A melee weapon that gives +1 to focus, usable by Druid, Cleric, and Wizards (Rod of Focus?).

The original rare Staff of Focus is 2016, and Baton was 2017, and there hasn't been a reprint or functional equivalent since then.
