What are Potion Tokens?  

A Potion Token is a unique RPG table-top gaming accessory that represents a great way for a table-top RPG player to keep track of his or her potion inventory during game-play. The Potion Token is given to a player by the DM (Dungeon Master) or GM (Game Master) when the player's character finds potions in an adventure. When a player uses (spends) a Potion Token, they can physically hand the Potion Token to the DM. 

No need to erase a potion from inventory!!

The small spell description on the back of the potion token tells the player exactly what to do to resolve that spell.

Potion Tokens are produced in both PLASTIC and METAL materials. 

Potion Tokens are compatible with: 

  • Pathfinder RPG 
  • 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons  
  • Castles & Crusades
  •  And virtually any other D20-based Fantasy RPG.
.

Metal Potion Tokens are 1.75" in size. (Plastic POTION TOKENS are slightly smaller.)

To give a good idea of how big that actually is, here is a pic of the actual size of the finished product next to a medium sized RPG miniature. (The coin pictured is an actual finished "Cure Light Wounds" Potion Token)

This time around we decided to go with a Stretch Goal format.  This more affordable format ensures that at least some, if not all, of the Potion Tokens' funding will be successful.

Add on any of the Potion Tokens generated by this Kickstarter campaign.

** Include the price of any desired add-ons into your pledge and then after the Kickstarter campaign is complete we will contact you via e-mail to ask which add-on Potion Tokens you want.

Potion Tokens supporters can score free Plastic Potion Tokens by referring a friend or fellow gamer.  

  • The supporter sends me a message including the name of the person they referred.  
  • And the referred person sends me a message telling me who referred them.  
  • Once i have received both messages,  the supporter will receive one free plastic Potion Token of the available Potion Tokens that have achieved their stretch goal dollar amount.

The original art for Potion Tokens was created by professional artist Mike S. Corley.  Mike was integral in making Potion Tokens a reality. Check out Mike’s Deviantart.com gallery here: http://mscorley.deviantart.com/gallery/

In addition, more original art was created by Professional artist Ross A. Campbell.  Ross did a fantastic job creating the Potion of Bull Strength and Potion of Mage Armor Potion Tokens. His Deviant Art gallery can be found here: http://ross-a-campbell.deviantart.com/

Risks and challenges

A big risk was the first Kickstarter campaign we launched for Potion Tokens. But one big lesson we learned from the failed first attempt was to set the goal lower and work off of a stretch goal structured campaign. We're confident that this time Potion Tokens will become funded.

We have also gotten in contact with a new manufacturer. Our new manufacturer is from Hong Kong and does work for corporations like Mcdonalds, Disney, and ABC. They can deliver a good amount of our product in a decent time-frame. I tried to stay with an American manufacturer but after we crunched the numbers, we found that it just wasnt' possible.

One huge risk I have taken is paying for the commissioned artwork and copyrighting of the Potion Token concept up-front.

Once I receive the finished product and the packaging, I'll need some time to get everything prepared and sent out.

My coin manufacturer said they can handle large quantities of product in a small amount of time so the delivery date is on the long side of estimating but that way you, as the customer,are pleasantly surprised when your Potion Tokens before the promised delivery date.
