Tokens have arrived!

Welp, I got my giant bag of tokens and just spent a hour and change sorting the lot of them. No purple in the batch but some good stuff regardless. I ended up getting like 4 full platemails for some reason. To give you an idea of how off that is, it would mean that even though I bought essentially 2% of the tokens in this first run, I received 11% of the platemails in it. It'll make for nice trade fodder I guess, but it would have been spiffy to have gotten some more of the new tokens. Overall I seem to have gotten a pretty middle of the road distribution as far as value. The platemails are balanced by 2 50gp tokens and a crapload of things like wands of magic missile, elven cloaks, and quarterstaves +1. Could have been better. Could have been worse.

Wikipedia Birthday Meme

Go to Wikipedia. Enter your birthday (without the year). List three nifty things that happened on that date, three other people that were born, and three people that died.

Interesting Whozits:
1775 - American Revolutionary War: Patrick Henry delivers his famous speech -"give me liberty or give me death" at St. John's Church in Richmond, Virginia.
1933 - The Reichstag passes the Enabling Act, making Adolf Hitler dictator of Germany.
1983 - Strategic Defense Initiative: President Ronald Reagan makes his initial proposal to develop technology to intercept enemy missiles.

Births:
1429 - Margaret of Anjou, queen of Henry VI of England (d. 1482)
1905 - Joan Crawford, American actress (d. 1977)
1973 - Jason Kidd, American basketball player


Deaths:
752 - Stephen is elected Pope. He died three days later, before being consecrated, and is not considered a legitimate pope.
1801 - Tsar Paul I of Russia is struck with a sword, then strangled, and finally trampled to death in his bedroom at St. Michael Palace.
1931 - Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev embrace the gallows during the Indian struggle for independence. Their request to be shot by a firing squad is refused.


Now that is a fucking impressive death. I mean, think about it. How many people throughout history can claim that they were trampled to death in their own bedroom? It reminds me of the naked gun when Ludwig gets hit by a poison Dart, falls off the balcony, is run over by a car and a steam roller and then trampled by a marching band. "My father went the same way!"
