In the next 48 hours the Kickstarter by Campaign Coins will complete, I have been super excited about this project since I caught wind of it in June. The stretch goal shave been nice and have included a number of bonus coins, a fate bag and a variety of options of finishings for your coins.
Admittedly I’ve yet to run a full Fate campaign yet but I hadn’t yet decided what to use as fate tokens and these give a nice touch to the whole thing. I have opted to buy 3 sets of coins and quite like the Antique Silver finish, but I’m not sure if I will get that for all 3 sets or keep one in Antique Bronze.
The bonus is that they can also be used to determine Fate too, a set of 12 coins has four blank, four plus and four minus coins, so all you need to do is pluck them from a bag randomly and you have your result. Using coins also alters the probability slightly versus using fudge (fate) dice as outline by Paul Stefko here.
At some point I would also like to get a Deck of Fate, I really like the idea of using different mechanics other than rolling dice for games. It certainly goes a little way towards making things more entertaining, especially having more than one method.
