Obviously, the old heroes and monsters have been adapted to 2e, but officially, nearly all the other great bits from first edition are now obsolete.

This geek list is for ideas that people have for using the old bits. While I prefer uses that simply add flavor (because if you wanted to play 1e, just play 1e), I am ok with additions that are essentially house rules AS LONG AS THEY USE THE 1E BITS.

I am hoping that people can keep adding to the list as one place to reference all the great ideas.

I will start with some of the obvious ones, as well as a few ideas that others have had in some of the forums. I don't take any credit

To get to the obvious ones, the wound and fatigue tokens could be used (though probably not necessary).

Also, the coins could be used for those who like to hold their money when they find it.

There is still a pit trap card in the 2e, so placing a pit marker on that spot would seem to work well.

In quests like Shadow Vault, there are generic tokens used for stairs where you could use the original stair tokens instead.

Earth, water, fire, and air tokens to represent the different seals in Enduring the Elements quest.

Also, the sun amulet to represent the ray of sunlight in The Dawnblade or the Totem of the Sun in The Twin Idols.

The box, to fit Second Edition with all your First Edition and expansions' heroes, monsters, tokens, and counters!

I'm as compelled as the next guy to think about recycling my 1E bits, but I barely fit the JitD and WoD monsters in the 2E box (heroes and hero cards are relegated to the Conversion Kit box). I like the new efficiency of 2E. I cannot fall down this rabbit hole.

On the other hand, while I am thinking about it, I'm sure RtL's tuck boxes could come in handy for campaign "saving" again.
