Cool; I got one of each of those just to sort of see what they are like, and quickly decided I should just grab a stock of a half dozen of each.

Both of those books of forms -- Labyrinth Planner and Deluxe Character Journal -- are the sort of tools that GMs and players may want in multiples. If you're running a campaign, the Labyrinth Planner can be used as one book for each dungeon that you design.

Yes, I grabbed both in a recent order and they seem designed with focus and detail in mind. You'd likely want a fresh book for each character or dungeon.

There is an irony somewhere here because a simple starting character in TFT, even for roleplaying play, can seriously fit on a post it note. But the heart wants what it wants, and I want my favorite continuing characters to have a big journal where I can keep track of all their pets and friends (and pets who are friends) and contacts and alternate gear and so forth.

I've been doing a lot of home-crafted dungeons this year, so will get a lot of use out of the labyrinth planner and agree that one book per substantial dungeon is the way to go. But note that one thing we don't have in the product line is sheets of hex paper that are big enough to really hold the floor plan of the entirety of a dungeon level that is roughly the size of a typical D+D dungeon, at a scale where your map can be read and perhaps contain small written notes (e.g., 'H4' next to a hidden door). We have the 8.5x11 sheet of small-scale graph paper, but I've found myself spilling over onto multiple sheets pretty often. I wonder if there is something that could be done with a big rolled or (more plausible for a shipped item) blank folded map sheets with a scale of 1/4" or even 1/2" per hex or so.

For a while I kept my TFT NPCs in a recipe card box. ^_^

Fortunately, we have created several options for character record sheets:

* Full-page, half-page, and small pad of sheets in the Legacy Edition box.
* Small character journal in Decks of Destiny.
* Large character journal as a stand-alone book.

Oh, I get it! I love and use all the options on offer, from the tiny melee fighter record to the full journal.
