Hi everyone,

We found a good solution for drawing characters.  We have use it already in our games.

This way, you have no problems with colors, when picking a character, and you don't have to shuffle them all!

It's ultimate random!

Character Draw Tokens

This is what you need:

A bag:



Give the tokens a number:



+ Print out a sheet of all the existing characters and give them a number. 

+  I choose for alphabetical order.

End result

Let's draw the characters!

You are ready to play the game!

Wow I like that idea immensely.  If I had the patience I'd actually make icons on each sticker of the character.

Thanks for presenting that idea.

Nice idea! I like the suggestion for icons too. I sense a small project coming on...

 Great idea! I'm going to use it but a little modified, I don't have enough buttons, so I'll print some coloured squares and I'll just write Character numbers on them. But I'll need to think later to make them more durable.

Enter the Talisman Island!

Hi Nemomon,

Decades ago I bought 30 sided dices for a game, the dice were transparent and it was kinda hard to see what numbers was rolled, my solution was to use technical ink pen called "rapidograf" to filled the groove with black ink so the number would be easy to see and to make it durable I added a light coat of clear varnish.

30 years latter they still look great and the number are still as easy to see as before, maybe this could also work for printed number!!
