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. <_<

@ 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!? :(

      Their last Kickstarter (Dwarves) was full of great, characterful sculpts and delivered very much on time. This here seems a worthy successor (look, Beagle, no Dwarves):
       
       
      Balalaika Maiden: The Gardariki Trade Caravans always include entertainers, poets and the like as well as the more pecuniary-inclined. When the day’s work is done, they string up a tune to entertain at the banquet table.
      Set 01 – Market Women: Although the actual Fair focuses on the trade of commodities and precious goods from near and far, supplies for daily life in the bustling town is provided by the peasants and small craftsmen from the city’s bailiwick. In many cases, it is the women who man the stalls and wander the market square proffering their goods.
      Set 02 – No time to chat!: As the market opens, there is always a jostle for the best spots. No time for a friendly chat then, although once the hunting grounds have been staked out, call and chatter fills the various market areas.
      Set 03 – Georg von Würstenberg, Master of the Butchers’ Guild: Formerly a mere butcher, Georg von Würstenberg made his way to the top of the prestigious Butchers’ Guild, his paunch equalling his influence and power. Some say that, along the way, various rivals ended up in his product, but not to his face! Wherever he goes, he is announced by his herald, Peter Pfefferbeis.
      Set 04 – Guardsmen of the Butchers’ Guild: The Guilds of Bruegelburg always vie for the prime spot in the City Council, and many are not above using nefarious means to advance their own position. Hence, prominent Guild members are escorted by armed guards, who also make up militias policing various areas of the town where the Town Guards cannot or will not go.
      Set 05 – Patricians: The richest and most powerful merchants of Bruegelburg are commonly called “Patricians”, and it is they who head the various factions in the City Council. As the Fair opens, they can be seen ambulating across the Grand Hall, sampling wares and making deals.
      Set 06 – Country Nobles: The City of Bruegelburg is surrounded by various small villages and fiefs, some loyal to regional potentates, some allied with the city. The heads of these fiefs invariably visit the city for the great Fair to see and be seen.
      Set 07 – Paupers of Bruegelburg: At the bottom of the social ladder, a teeming mass of paupers and beggars, pickpockets and thugs makes a living in the meaner parts of town. As the market opens, they venture forth to profit from charity and carelessness, respectively. 
      Set 08 – A Word in Jest: Entertainment is a key aspect of the Market Day, and Jesters from near and far are happy to provide. Just don’t forget to guard your purse as you watch their antics on the stage! 
      Set 09 – A jesting Tjost: An increasingly popular pageant in recent years is the “Jesters’ Tjost”, a parody of the grand tournaments that hail back to the great days of knights long past, with the entertainers striving for the most amusing way to “unhorse” each other and poke fun at their betters. 
      Set 10 – Days of Childhood: Market Day is a welcome diversion from the often dull and dreary life of kids in Bruegelburg, and gaggles of children can be seen everywhere.

      Beyond that my lips are sealed. Except for this tiny teaser of course.

      Looks like Twisted is coming out with a kickstarter!
       
      AND IT'S LIVE!
      We've seen quite a few of them painted up on the forum, very cool steampunk figures. The company is owned/operated by Sebastian Archer who also owns/sculpts for his other brand (Guild of Harmony). I've ordered a few GoH figures in the past and Sebastian always gets the figures out from Australia to the US very quickly.
       

       

       
      Some of the figures from Twisted -
       

       
      EXCITING NEWS! The countdown is now on: we have set a date for the launch of the Twisted Kickstarter campaign - February 16th!
       
      Note it down in your diaries and stay tuned for more information about what will be included in the campaign. As well as launching the Twisted rules and adding lots and lots of new miniatures, we have some very exciting surprises in store for you. All will be revealed soon - we can't wait!

      Looks like plastic mecha are all the rage. Between Robotech and CAV I'm going to be up to my ears in mecha...but the idea of gears that don't cost an arm and a leg may be too much to resist. Don't know that I'll go big on this one, probably one of the army boxes or a $1 pledge with some add-ons. These aren't likely to be used with their game so I'm not looking to get more than handful, definitely not more than say, 20.
       
      Says starting in October, not sure when though.

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.
