I read on the last post that there had been demands for an expansion of the Stash. I had a thought and wanted to share it. A limited sideboard is one of the hallmarks of the game, and important for balance purposes. My proposal is:

 

Each party gets its own Sideboard (renamed from 'Stash' to 'Sideboard.' Those sideboards are unique to that party and that campaign.

 

A new tab, "Trove," is created, and at any point between adventures, players may move a card (like the Robe of Runes, or Amulet of Mighty Fists) from their party sideboard to the Trove. Trove becomes the mechanic for trading cards across parties, while the sideboard remains for those situational cards that you may not want in your deck full time.

 

Thoughts on my thoughts?

It depends on if you like the stash or not. Those who likes it most likely want to see enhanced version of it.
Some like me, who does not like it, seems it as one more source to bugs and time wasted instead of making new contents and debug other bugs.
All in all it depends a lot on how much it would take time from the devs to implement it.

I think for people who aren't accustomed to CCGs/LCGs and board games in general will find the inability to hold on to a sideboard anathema. I think having a hybrid to restrict power leveling and for those people who want a sideboard, have one for each party. I know that would be my thing, but I also concede that it has all of the issues you independently raised.

Making it party specific isn't an enhancement or balance, it's just flat-out the way it should have always worked in the first place. None of the problems the stash is supposed to be solving require it to be account-global. Making it global introduces a whole lot of issues and abuses while also not enabling anything that people ought to be doing in the first place.

 

Being able to farm AD6 cards for characters in an AD1 party is ridiculous. What's annoying me at the moment though is that I can't keep a separate stash for two different parties even if I want to. I've got one party in the goblin campaign, and went to play another party elsewhere, and all my goblin campaign stash cards are there. So now if I don't want to be swapping cards between entirely unrelated parties I have to either not use the stash at all anywhere, or manually remember which cards belong to which party and just hope I don't get forced to take another party's cards if I don't have enough of a certain type.

 

I'm not such a purist that I don't want to try out the new features at all, but when the way they work doesn't make any sense, and you can't ignore the issues without deliberately and forcibly disabling the feature everywhere (in this case by always selling all your cards and never stashing any), then I'm not left with a lot of choice.
