Wizards of the Coast has released new Token Expansion Sets for Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition to game stores near you! Two new expansion Token sets hit gaming stores towards the end of December in the form of the new 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons Scales Expansion and Scrolls Expansion. Both new releases were set to work or compliment the Dungeons and Dragons Dungeon Master’s Token Set which released last year to help both game master and players keep track of character and monster conditions on the game table while running 4th Edition battles. The core Token Set was released last year and was very helpful in managing battles for Dungeons and Dragons, but was a bit pricey for what you received in my opinion. You can read more about it HERE if you would like.
The 4th Edition Scales Expansion features 24 Scale shaped or type of tokens as well as 5 additional “Bloodied” tokens to use on your table top battles. Along with a new Burst Origin token, the set totals 30 tokens in all and retails for $9.99 to $12.99 depending on where you pick it up at.
The 4th Edition Scrolls Expansion features an additional 5 “Bloodied” tokens and the new Burst Origin token, both offered in the Scales expansion, as well as 9 ongoing damage tokens, 9 Status scroll tokens, and two different colors of marked tokens for fighter marks and the like. All in all, this Scrolls set also contains 30 total tokens and retails in the same $9.99 to $12.99 range. The scrolls token set does provide you more of the blank scrolls in it. This allows you to use in conjunction with wet erase markers to jot down specific damage types for say ongoing poison damage and other DOT’s for easier tracking with your table top battles.
My group uses the bloodied and marked tokens more than anything and if you can afford the extra cost, these little tokens are very useful for both the gamer and the game master.
