That was a fantastic response! I just need to pick a color I guess.

I really like the look of these, the sapphire especially reminds me of a prettier version of the blue gem dice that I bought when I first started gaming. I can't really imagine what these feel like in hand though.

That is the hardest part! Honestly I have already broken every goal I had in my head a few weeks ago in the first few days and with the amount of funds and press the campaign is getting I would be concerned as a backer and ask questions.

Honestly as a Kickstarter backer myself I think we need to do a better job holding project creators responsible for the things they say. I welcome anyone to bring things but to me, as I have learned a lot from my comments sections already! I don't know everything, I don't even pretend to. My goal right now is to just make the best dice that I can and to fulfill ON TIME!

 

Some people like Reaper and Dwarven Forge always deliver to me what they say they will. I want to model how I do things after how they do things. :)

 

Thanks

Holly,

 

My biggest question I guess is why a different colored 20-sided when it's traditionally a different colored 10-sided for the percentile? Curious minds are curious.

 

Also, I still have my original dice from 1981. I had to retire them permanently because they are now brittle and the edges are crumbling (solid white plastic set). I do have dice much older from the 50s, 60s and 70s that don't have this problem, and sets from the same era and later that are fine. I'm going on a limb that your Bulletproof Glass will not succumb to this bizarre issue with age.

 

My lapis dice I don't use because I know how soft the stone is, and my pewter Reaper dice are only really useful to throw at people who get obnoxious (whatever number is imprinted on their forehead is the damage! :lol: ... j/k)

Great question! I have had a couple people ask me about that now. In the new version of Dungeons and Dragons ( 5th edition ) you use a 2ed D20 for a lot of reasons. When I first started getting my pledge goals set up, people asked me to included that in a set for their game. So I did. :)

 

But later today I will have a update up where you can purchase single dice, in any color you want. So if someone wanted to add a single off color D10 to their set, they can. Also, with our first stretch goal you can choose any color of die with your sets, so you get to mix and match anyway you want.

 

I love the idea of Gemstone Dice. I own some myself, but I can't really use them. I'm working on a idea to fix that myself, but its still a year away. ( My guess )

 

Anyone that is interested the Kickstarter has gone through a massive overhaul and many things have been changed/improved!

 

Thanks

Holly

Nope, she bakes and decorates cookies. She actually has more air brushes than I do! Even as a gift, $60 just seems like too much. Especially as I have many dice I already like!

My lapis cost about as much, as did the Machu Pichu dice and for that one I only get three. The chocolate dice still haven't delivered. <_<

If you contact them on the book face they usually reply pretty fast

@ NomadZeke

Thank you! The Fire Agates are my personal favorite as well. People ask me if the pinks and purples are my favorite, and although I love them both nothing like that Orange color!

 

Harrek

So... Did you pick a color yet? ;)

I understand completely! Sadly this is really the lowest price point I could sell them at because of the cost of materials and hand made nature.

 

Here is one point to consider. Even if you want a dice or dice set you don't need to back right now. I know a lot of people who are hurting from Dwarven Forge and the fantastic Castle Kickstarter they have going on right now and are just to tapped out.

This is not the only time the dice will be available! If you love a color and feel like you must own them you can always get them at a later point. If you are unsure if you really want them, wait for others to get them first and do reviews. Don't feel like you have to get them now!

Thank you very much! I honestly do appreciate the comment and well wishes. It makes all the hours hand tooling things worth it. :)

 

Aryanun

Wait.... I missed out on CHOCOLATE DICE!? :(

      After the success of the first campaign for 16th century Knights I'm now expanding my 28mm Renaissance range with charging mounted Knights!
      These new Knights will have couched lances or be using hand weapons on galloping horses.
      Further I have reworked the figures from the first Knights campaign to make them easier to assemble, they now have sockets to attach the hands and heads. There are also some revised poses and new heads.
      Sets one-three painted so you can get a feel for how these figures can look. Please note these sets are being revised and pictures of the new ones will be added as the campaign continues. These figures are in the popular 28mm scale and will fit well with figures such as Perry miniatures, they can be used for many periods and settings in the 16th century but also for fantasy collections.
      Please note that the figures are unpainted and require assembly they are not toys for children. Also the figures shown still have minor refinements to be made before casting.
      My figures have been highly researched and are packed with details, I have tried to give many of them an explosive sense of movement. Every mounted knight figure comes with a choice of two heads and two plumes the horses are all separate from the riders and all nessesary weapons are included. This means you can customise your figures to create a very unique collection.
      if you back the campaign you will receive you figures at a 25% discount of normal website prices, which means that for the campaign a pack of two mounted Knights cost £15
      Also if the main campaign is a succes as a stretch goal the first pikemen figures will be released...these figures will be in full forward motion with levelled pikes. They can be used for either Landsknechts or Swiss pike.

      In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.
       
      Spirit Island is a cooperative, settler-destruction strategy game for 1 to 4 players designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players are different spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Work with your fellow spirits and the native islanders to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.
       

       
      This game was playtested at some of my Fourth of July parties, and though I haven't had a chance to play it yet myself, the game comes highly recommended.
       
      The interesting bit here is that you play neither the Invaders nor the Inhabitants of the island, but the spirits trying to alter the balance of power in defense of the Inhabitants themselves.
