As a GM, I know how frustrating it can be to run an encounter without the help of visual aids. Beads, dice, and other such items can be used represent an NPC or creature, but they take you completely out of the story. With the high price of pewter and even plastic figurines, I needed an inexpensive alternative.

The tokens I have created are a standard one inch in diameter, and can be used with grids or hexagons.

The finished tokens will be printed on professional-grade photo paper for a bright, long lasting image.

They have a felt base, so they move smoothly and are safe for any gaming surface.

Every set will come with twenty tokens, enough to run an encounter. Each set will also, where appropriate, contain tokens of diverse genders and classes, so you won't have to use a warrior to represent a wizard.

Risks and challenges

There are few risks and challenges with this project. I have made these tokens for my personal use, so the only issue I can foresee would be if the order amount was so large that production would take me past the expected delivery date. That problem would be solved by bringing in additional help to fulfill the orders to get them shipped within the stated time.
