Revised DM Token System

Post by Zandel2 » Sat May 11, 2013 12:38 am

Revised DM Token system
(last changed: 25th of march 2021)


DM Tokens:

1. Players can gain DM tokens for their character from DM if he or she decides to hand out them during or after events, as reward for tasks set, compensation for one thing or another, trade-in of Yuletide tokens, and so on.

2. DM tokens also can be earned by becoming role-player of the month. There is a thread where characters can be nominated by another player by posting a description of something cool that character did during a month on Arkaz, and then at the end of the month each nominated character earns a token.

3. Players can trade in DM Tokens to either buy something (new) for their character from the list, or upgrade existing posessions. (The list is below the rules mentioned below).


Rules:

1. Refer to the chart to see how many tokens each property will cost.

2. If an item is to be upgraded and it has properties that are not included on the chart then the team will take this into review and assess a value to the property and will then upgrade the chart to reflect the change.

3. An item can have no more than 5 properties with a value greater than 0. Some properties could have a 0 value and thus will not count against the 5 property restriction.

4. An upgrade will cost a flat fee of 2 tokens on top of the cost of what is being added. i.e. If a sword has +2 Enhancement and 1d6 Fire and a player would like to add Keen to the weapon it would cost 6 tokens: 2 token upgrade fee and 4 for Keen is a total of 6.

5. An item's total property value cannot exceed 20. i.e. If an item has 1d6 Fire (Value of 5 from the chart) and 1d6 Sonic (Value of 5 from the chart) then the total property value of that item is 10.

6. If upgrading a property that already exists, +2 to +3 for example, the cost of the new property will be the difference in what is already on the item and what is being applied, plus the 2 token upgrade cost. i.e. If A ring had +2 wisdom and you wanted to upgrade it to +3, the cost to upgrade would be 2 (7-5) for the upgraded property plus 2 for the upgrade fee, for a total of 4.

7. Any item with a value of 9 or higher will be marked plot no drop.

8. There is the option to swap a property on an item for a property of the same kind and strength (for example: +2 ability score for another +2 ability score) for a flat two token fee.

9. There also is an option to 'move' properties from one item to another for a flat two token fee per property. (for example: player comes to DM with a Armor +3 and a Shield that is DR 10/- Acid. For 2 tokens player loses a single property on one item and gets that single property added to the other item). Note that all other rules above still apply (for instance, no more then 5 properties allowed, total property value can not exceed 20, and so on).

Hey everyone, The team has added the option to swap like enchantments with one of the same power for a flat fee of TWO Tokens.

Example: You have +2 strength of your ring... and you decide you need +2 constitution instead... you can swap the strength for constitution for 2 tokens.

EDIT by DM Anamaleth: added this to this first post as well.
