+1/-1 Coins for +1/-1 forwards – for use at the table.
I usually use name tags and sit little markers on them to keep track of +1 forwards. But it’s occurred to me that it would be better to hand out coins / tokens to that effect so that the players affected can see and remember their bonus.
After all, +1 forwards is a bit like a Bennie from Savage Worlds. It’s there for a little boost and then spent. But it really helps to have some system to keep track of it – especially when you have a caster in the group who is accumulating penalties and bonuses all the time.
Does anyone know of a game that already has +1/-1 tokens? I could simply order spare parts for them and that would be very easy.
Otherwise I may invest in having some bespoke coins made – perhaps with bigger ones for +1 ongoing. I’d probably have to order in bulk, so if anyone else is interested let me know.
