Momentum & Doom Tokens

Just getting all my books now and I was curious about the doom and fortune tokens that are advertised in the back of the books. Are these actually available for sale yet? I can’t seem to find them listed on the Modiphius site or anywhere else. I realize I can just use poker chips or whatever, but I’d like something more interesting. I did find some cool looking replica tin pirate coins on amazon and ordered them so that should do the trick. But I was wondering if there are official tokens floating around somewhere.

Other cool tokens to use are rune reading stones.

I use decorative black rocks and a glass bowl for my doom. Active doom goes into the bowl and has a nice satisfying (read terrifying for the players) clinking sound. I actually ordered cheap plastic treasure coins to represent momentum and small oriental coins to represent fortune. It has worked out really well but I definitely do recommend getting something separate to represent each pool.

During playtesting, I used poker chips for Momentum, Fortune, and Doom.

Then my style evolved, and now I use little plastic skulls for Doom instead.


I use little ceramic skull beads for Doom. :smiley:

Little metal coins for Fortune

Little white glass decorative beads for momentum.

As a follow up, I received my pirate coins in the mail yesterday. They came in three colors: silver, black, and gold, with 10 of each. So I think I’m in business, though I’m still checking hobby stores for little skull beads or tokens to use for doom.

I play online and use Jolly’s mod in Fantasy Grounds for the doom and momentum.

If you are going to use a bowl or something I recommend a glass bowl and making sure that the beads/tokens you use have a little heft so they make a nice satisfying sound when you drop them in :slight_smile:

Hyrkanian – I’m curious about the pirate coins you found. Do you have a link to what you bought? (If not for a John Carter game, maybe I can use them elsewhere.)

Sure; here you go:

They area bit smaller than I thought they’d be (they are slightly bigger than quarters), but they will do the trick.

I personally will be using those decorative glass rocks or beads or whatever that people put in glass bowls or vases. I have a TON of them that I got at a craft store for markers for a different game. I have a whole bunch that are smaller and transparent purple I will be using for Doom, some white ones that I will use for Momentum and each player will have their own chosen color for fortune.

Those coins are awesome! Can be used to represent the gold coins in the game as well :slight_smile:
