One of these items was Devin Knight's Dark Forest Token Pack. Normally $2.99, during this sale it is marked down to 99¢. Normally I'd have grabbed these up at the full price, but since I'm not currently running or playing in an online game (the place I generally use these tokens), they were shuffled off to my wish list instead of my shopping cart.
I've been using Devin Knight's tokens for years and even had a handful of custom tokens made. If you've downloaded some of DK's free tokens you may very well be playing with some of my former PCs! I've noticed over the years that he's just gotten better and better at his craft. Not only has his art improved, but he's gotten better at delivering the finished results.

Now it has been a while since I've bought any of Devin's tokens and I was pleasantly surprised that the download contained to make files. The first was a zipped folder of all the tokens as organized PNG files. It may be a little thing, but since I already have a metric butt-load of assorted digital tokens, being able to file away new ones easily goes a long way with me. That second file was a layered PDF of the tokens as well.

Providing the PDF is a great touch on Devin's part that really adds some flexibility in use for these tokens. If you play in an online game using one of the popular online mapping programs then purchasing these tokens is a no-brainer at less than 2¢ a token. If you use paper minis....same deal. If you don't use flat paper minis, I can see this not being a quick choice, but there are a couple of tokens that might really fill a whole in your collection. I thought the spider swarm was one of the nicer representations I've seen (like it better than the Cardboard Heroes version).
Devin Knight's Dark Forest Token Pack is a pretty good deal at $2.99. If obtained during the GM's Day Sale over at DriveThruRPG (lasting until March 15th) it is practically a steal. I highly recommend you check it out for yourself.
