Prism Dice : Handmade from Bulletproof Glass by Relic Dicedunded

Recommended Posts

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!? :(

      About this project
      The invention of dice can be traced back almost 5000 years. 
      However, the dice you see before you now, retain a much deeper history than that.
      Crafted from the world's oldest wood, these dice are carbon dated to be 50,000 years old - 10 times older than the invention of dice themselves!
      This is your chance to own a rare artefact of our planet's immense history!
      Introducing the most fascinating gaming accessory in the world...
       The Wood: Ancient Kauri
      Ancient Kauri is the oldest and most exotic wood in the world. Not one tree was cut down to harvest it. 
      Tsunamis levelled the mighty Kauri forests during the Stone Age, leaving the trees buried just below the surface of the ground and preserved in the water of peat swamps. 
      The Ancient Kauri wood has neither petrified nor turned to coal. This underground resting place, sealed from the air, became a perfectly balanced cocoon that preserved the giant trees for 50,000 years.
      The wood used to craft the Ancient Dice is sourced from the awesome people over at Ancient Wood Ltd. All wood comes with certificates of aunthenticity. 
      The natural iridescence of this incredible wood resonates the historical significance behind these dice.
      There is a very limited amount of Ancient Kauri on the planet. 
      These dice shift the barrier between present day, and The Stone Age. To own one is to own a genuine prehistoric artefact; a glowing relic of truly ancient history.
      50,000 Years Old
      To give some context as to just how old these dice are, here’s some info on how different things were here on Earth, when the trees used to carve these dice fell:
      Population was less than 10000 – humans faced extinction. Spoken and written language did not yet exist.  The Ice Age persisted. Humans lived in the Stone Age - coexisting with Neanderthals. Europe's population was 0. Since the trees fell, the moon has orbited Earth 675,925 times.

      Okay, so: draugr kickstarter. Hoping to launch next week. Tim Prow's undead wyrm as the centrepiece, with zombie beastmen, trolls, and cavalry to round out the pledges. Hopefully timed to coincide with payday at the end of the month.
