2025 Rare Tokens 4 months 3 days ago #13

Repeating my feedback on Trinkets, i.e. Trinket of Bear Form - The 1 trinket per game rule feels extremely bad with no other new way to polymorph, it feels like a strict downgrade in utility versus polymorph potions. If trinkets are going to remain as "powerful 1 per game", then other forms of less-strong polymorph should be available again, such as an uncommon polymorph potion. A one trinket per game rule also removes the fun toolbox and collecting aspect of polymorph--having a bunch of varied potions for polymorph options is fun. "Do I want to have fun in this room as a bear? a spider? a shark?"

Looks good. Like this version of the Fang of Fenrir much better.

Solid set of tokens shaping up here. I agree there's some rough edges... other folks seem to have that discussion in hand, though.

Here's some things I really like about this set of Rares:

Amulet of the Norns is a more newbie-friendly variation on the old Necklace of the Norns

Love the Art on 500gp Huginn & Muninn. Thanks for listening to my earlier request ; )

Bifrost Boots - love the callback to Boots of Bounding ... and that the "2 pts of Cold Damage" may be easily negated with the "-1 to Cold damage" tokens in this year's set.

Charm of Guidance - That's a *nice* addition to the RareTE series

Linked Shirt of the Valkyrie - Sweet entry-level synergy item for new players!

Lute of the Brute... love the bardic rhyming name, and the ability. (I always feel bad for newbie Bards who want to attack, but are stuck in a corner being ignored while they attempt to inspire the party but instead just add to the noise level in the room.)

That's a really elegant idea.


Seconded! (Thirded?)

ONE thing I think needs fixing:

Belt of Belching: 2 pts sonic damage to all Monsters as a Sneak Attack.
No, wait. as a ... Standard Action?
Poor abbreviation - new players don't know what a "SA" is. And it's confusing to us Rogues.
(Although, if we can "Standard Action a second time", using the Relic or Legendary Rogue Necklace, I'm down with that!)

Love the art work and I think we are in great shape here.


Good point! The Great Axe is now a War Spear. Thanks.

Fixed. I added text to explain it is one less Melee attack per round.

Good call. Fixed it so it says Common-Rare tokens.

Good point. I changed it to a Jasper Cube...and made it red.

Note that "Common-Rare" will bring the power down as it doesn't cover Enhanced or Exalted. For what it's worth, there's an existing Uncommon, the 2022 Humble Cup , which says "UR+", but I do agree newer players may not be aware of what that means and like it being spelled out. Maybe explicitly say "Common, Uncommon, or Rare", like the 2020 Ring of Jealous Fervor and 2023 Wind Runestone ?

Crusader's Wrath: Cleric only. Slotless.
Once per game, as an Instant Action, a Cleric may channel the wrath of [war god] to add their Focus to their weapon damage if no other effect already adds Focus to weapon damage. This bonus lasts for the rest of the room; however, while consumed by wrath, the Cleric may not take any action other than Melee attack (e.g., no Spell may be cast; no Powers may be invoked; no Scrolls, Potions, or other items may be used), and any side effects from damage dot (such as instakill) do not apply. New weapon oils may no longer be applied, but any previously applied oils still take effect. The Cleric may drop this bonus (and accompanying restrictions) for the rest of the room as an Instant Action on any round they have not yet made a Melee attack.

What if instead [ Click to expand ]

Please keep this in mind for the Cleric class re-do. Cool idea.

I wasn't even gonna ask, as I know that Rares get the Red glow.....
but now, I anticipate that I'll discover a strong need to collect a page of 20 of these : )
