And why is it so hard to figure out that he had a long-standing illusion as human on him which he did not know about, and he is transforming into whatever he really is, slowly, because the medallion was not the right one? Or at least, that’s my take on it.


Because when you don’t know that you don’t know something, it’s easy to make yourself believe you do know.

And because most people don’t want to believe they didn’t know as much about themselves as they thought they did.


Is anyone else thinking of his father at this moment in time? His dad could’ve been something and not have told his mom, so they both know nothing about it.


How do they know what sort of medallion is for whichever creature when the medallion is blank?


Well that’s simple. Just keep it written down. I imagine Madame U keeps good records. And it can only turn or disguise the correct species, so the turning tests work for the medallions as well as people.

    This was my collection of medallions, until very recently… I noticed my keychain felt lighter than usual, and sure enough the fob that I kept them all on was gone. No luck finding it so far. I’m looking in your store and not seeing most of these, is there any way to replace them? Maybe even a secondary market, if you know of one?

    Oh no, that stinks, I’m sorry! I hope you can find them back!

    Unfortunately the all-copper medallions are out of print and I probably won’t remake them like that anymore. If they do get remade they’ll have color on them, like the others. Same story with the nixie medallion. I need to do inventory on the white stags to see if I have any left, but I will probably be reordering those because they are popular. And bugbears are always in stock at my store! Send me a message on Patreon and I can sell you a bandersnatch medallion for cheap, even though those aren’t in the store.
