    Me too! Both my kids make up their own adventures and DM for groups. My daughter does hers online using a chat function, maps and images she creates.

    Ok, these things for Tomas’ roll are called shadow spells and it seems that either I have singular bad luck or that each fangbeast drops only one. And so because Thomas needs four of these, there is quite a lot of killing involved.

    The farmhouses spawn regular fang beasts too. Also, the shadow ones spawn items necessary for Thomas? roll.
    Out of my 12 farmhouses, 3 regular fangbeasts and one shadow fangie. That can't be right, can it, esp w needing 4 shadow spells for each of Thomas' turns? SW, is this something about which you would enquire? Is this a bug? Thanks! The regular fangbeasts don't take a lot of energy in total, and sometimes one can wind up better like with skunkupines. But maybe the regular fangbeasts are taking up spawn space of the beasties we actually need?

    Edit add: did another round through the farmhouses, got two shadow fangies and no regular ones. Have a total of 8 tokens from 3 monsters. 8/3 is 2.66 tokens per monster, which means almost 190 monsters to get 500 tokens.
    W H O A.

    Edit add again: another round and I have 12 tokens from 4 special fangies, total 125 monsters per crafted animal. Do-able over 2 weeks but time consuming. Do we know any drops yet? We don't have to decide yet in any case and will accumulate a fair few tokens with each player taking turns all these next two weeks.

    Very frustrated:

    I collected from the game table, the discussion took place about the stone and Ivy's character.

    I collected from Ivy's hut and did NOT get the item.

    The table still needed to be collected, but the game did not actually reset, because my goals were in the same place and I did not have to go through the story. ANGRY ANGRY ANGRY.

    I'm on Goal 8 which requires 8 Dragonstones, 2 Travel Potions and 3 Magic Gems.

    Getting the Magic Gems and the Dragonstones won't be a big deal, just a big drain on energy but the 2nd Travel Potion is going to be a pain. I can either wait 12 hours for Ivy's Hut, pay 50 Gems to maybe get some the materials needed from the event chest or wasting even more energy to get the Special Dice needed to complete more Baron's Rolls that again, only offers the chance of the items needed.

    I was trying to get as much of the event done in the next few days as possible to work with my current schedule but not sure that's going to work now, lol. It's things like this that make these events so tedious and I really wish they'd figure out a better way to structure things.

    Yes this is what I got as well. This is going to be very interesting.

    I’m in the same place but my problem is that while I still have energy left, all is going to take a long time because unlike the workshops or kitchens or other crafting buildings, the table is only one place where you can do the rolls. 8x30 minutes for Thurston and then Thomas and Ivy. It is a long queue and no way of making it shorter.

    On another note, I've just opened the Side Goal to craft the Shadow Beasts and WOW! They require A LOT of Shadow Tokens even considering that the Shadow Fangbeasts drop several at a time.




    I think I'd like to know what they drop before wasting thousands of energy crafting them, ya know?

    Is this a typo? I'm getting 41 tokens from 12 fangbeasts. So this means I'll need to defeat 147 beasts to craft one. That's 2,200 energy (15 energy to spawn and defeat roughly).
    S8, you've gotta be kidding me.
