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)

@ Aryanun

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!

 

Kangaroorex

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
        Along the Great Northern Trade Route that leads to the town of Midlam, merchants come from distant lands to buy and sell their wares.  
      One such trader is the Great Sultan, who has brought along his entourage of advisers, entertainers and of course, his guards.  Also, arriving close behind the Sultan are rumours of strange and exotic wizards, and something more sinister.  
      Could it be, that he hopes to escape the curse of the Undead Pharaoh, who's tomb he ordered looted for it's fantastic treasures?
      Whatever the truth of the matter, the High Wizard of Midlam has chosen to investigate these rumours...
      Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of six 28mm scale mages & priests from the distant desert lands, for all of your Fantasy Egyptian, Pulp and Arabian Nights games.
      The Undead Pharaoh  
      The High Priest  
      The Priest  
      The Priestess  
      The Sorceress  
      The Princess This is our fourth Kickstarter, and we are using it to help develop and extend our existing range of 'Arabian Nights' miniatures.
      We have also included an option to purchase 'An audience with the Great Sultan' alongside the six mages and priests.  The set includes twelve miniatures: The Sultan on rug, two guards, female guard with spear, assassin, servant with fan, panther, caravan guard, adviser, snake charmer, rug merchant and sword swallower.
      An Audience with the Great Sultan Getting this project funded will not only help us get these figures made, but will also help us plan and create future ranges and expansions. 
      Our three previous Kickstarters, Wizard Apprentices, Wizard Halflings and Cultists of the Kraken Lord all successfully funded and delivered on schedule.
      We are also happy to receive suggestions on what to make next!
      PLEASE NOTE: The miniatures are cast in a high quality pewter, with a high Tin content, but may contain a small quantity of lead.   We unfortunately cannot guarantee lead free models.
      They are not toys, and are not suitable for children. 
      We regrettably do not have the ability to produce resin miniatures. 
      All miniatures are supplied unpainted.
      All images and miniatures are ©2017 Midlam Miniatures.

      US Zone Shipping Complete! Questions, Help, Europe and Pacific Status!
      0 Comments      Like     Like the title says, we're done shipping US Zone rewards! (well, there's a few that had problems that needed resolving, but less than a dozen out of 10,000). Now that US Zone fulfillment is concluded, it’s important for us to address a few things.
      First and foremost, THANK YOU from all of us at Reaper for your patience while we worked through the delays and tribulations of fulfillment. We know that it wasn’t always easy, and sometimes there was a great deal of frustration, but we made it! We truly could not have accomplished all of this without your support.
      Pacific Zone and Europe Zone Fulfillment Status and Timelines
      Before we pulled ANY US Zone orders, we made sure that all Pacific Zone and Europe Zone rewards were loaded onto containers to ship to their respective hubs. We have 2 containers heading for ports in the UK and Australia. We cannot predict with certainty how long these will take to clear their respective Customs centers, so it is difficult to give a precise timeline. 
       Aetherworks of Sydney, Australia will be handling our to the Pacific Zone, and they are currently expecting to be able to begin shipping sometime in July. 
       RHQ Zombie Co Ltd of Nottingham, UK will be handling our to the Europe Zone and they are also expecting to be able to begin shipping sometime in July.
      In both cases, you will be notified via email by the shipper with a tracking number. We will keep you informed of any changes.
      And now, we're going to talk about the most common questions and problems you've been emailing us about, and how to help us help you out.
      My Shipment was Lost or Stolen 
      Your tracking information says that the package was delivered, but you do not have it. 
      You must open a claim (sometimes called a Trace Process) with the carrier for a stolen or mis-delivered package. Once you have done so, contact us at help@reapermini.com with your order number , name, tracking number as shown on your pledge manager, and any claim # or confirmation # provided, and we will follow up. 
       You can Open such a claim at the link below - simply provide the information requested and follow all necessary steps. https://wwwapps.ups.com/webClaims/create?loc=en_US&report_type=1 
      If it becomes necessary to send a second shipment, we may request a new delivery address for your replacement shipment, to help ensure proper delivery.
      I have no Shipping/Tracking e-mail
      You can find your tracking number on the Pledge Manager. Simply log in, and it will be in the right hand column above your itemized list of rewards. If no tracking number shows up, please contact us at help@reapermini.com and we will try to get it sorted out as fast as we can. 
       Be sure to include: 
      Your Order Number as shown in the Pledge Manager (Not your backer number)  Your full name as shown in the Pledge Manager  Your shipping address as shown in the Pledge Manager  Do not include any attachments or screenshots unless we ask for them. Attachments are incredibly insecure, and we do not open attachments from untrusted and unknown sources. Emails with unsolicited attachments will be deleted without being read. 
      My Tracking Information has stopped Updating
       Your package has been sitting in Chicago, IL for days/weeks with a status of "Package departed international carrier facility" or similar. (This is common for International Backers.)
       Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the "status" of your package, and it is especially well known that some National Postal Systems do not integrate their data well with the US Post. So for some customers Tracking will end once it leaves the US (or reaches Chicago), and you may not even receive an update that it has arrived in your country. The notice you have "Departed for International Carrier Facility" means it has been handed over to your National Postal Service, (or at least was loaded on a plane to go to your country's post) and in many cases, tracking simply stops there. You may ask of your National Post if they can locate the parcel for you, but not all tracking numbers provided by the US Postal System are considered valid numbers by all international carriers. 
      Be aware that we have access to the same data that you do, and as we no longer have the packages we have no more data than you have.
      I Ordered the Fat Dragon PDFs and there are none in my box
       We had a set of 4 FREE downloadable Dungeon Tile PDFs, provided by Fat Dragon Games, available through the Pledge Manager. To receive these items, backers needed to click the download links in the descriptions within the Pledge Manager. We also made these links available in Update #74 On June 10, 2016. 
       EZ Tiles: Dungeons 1 FREE PDF http://www.rpgnow.com/browse.php?discount=909bd1b4f9&affiliate_id=25275
       EZ Tiles: Village Streets 1 FREE PDF http://www.rpgnow.com/browse.php?discount=909c55bc4b&affiliate_id=25275
       EZ Tiles: Wilderness Ruins FREE PDF http://www.rpgnow.com/browse.php?discount=909d174ff1&affiliate_id=25275
       Ravenfell Core Set FREE PDF  http://www.rpgnow.com/browse.php?discount=909b00ac28&affiliate_id=25275
      These links will not be shared again.
      My Pledge Level was called “Core Set Wave #” But I did not receive a Core Set
      In almost every case, this is because in the Pledge Manager, you selected rewards that spent your pledged amount, but did not select a Core Set among your rewards. We are not responsible for shipping items that you did not order. This is a common enough problem that in the Project FAQ we mention that you had to select a Core Set to receive one.
      There is a Missing Part From my Order OR a Missing "Bit" from a Model
      If you are missing one or more models, or one or more parts from a model (whether an entire model or simply an arm/head/weapon/etc.) please contact us to receive a replacement. We will not "replace" parts which are not listed on your Invoice or were not locked in on your Pledge Manager. 
       Send your email to help@reapermini.com. Be sure to include: 
      Your Order Number as shown in the Pledge Manager (Not your backer number)  Your full name as shown in the Pledge Manager  Your shipping address as shown in the Pledge Manager  The part number of the item in question as shown on the large graphics of the Home Page of the Kickstarter Project.   A brief description of the problem - “Model xxx is missing her left wing”, “model is damaged or mis-cast”, etc.  Please remember to refer to the model’s left and right sides as if you were the model in question. This is the most common mistake of this kind, misidentifying the left and right sides. Please help us to get the correct parts to you. 
      Please DO NOT include screenshots or attachments of photographs of the miniatures or boxes when you email us unless we request it. Attachments are incredibly insecure, and we do not open attachments from untrusted and unknown sources. Emails with unsolicited attachments will be deleted without being read.
      Likewise, emails that are exasperatingly long and complex, or which contain vulgar and abusive language will be moved to the end of the queue, and in extreme cases will be deleted without resolution. If we cannot determine your problem and the appropriate resolution quickly, we will not take hours to do so, nor will we wade through paragraphs of profanity and insults to our heritage to help you. Please send only one email of this kind. Sending a new email each day with “Oh I just noticed this” will not help. If you have already sent an email, reply once to the first email with the required information.
      We will not begin the replacement process for missing or damaged items for several weeks. It will take us some time to reset and be able to process these emails.
      The Address My Rewards Were Shipped to is Incorrect
      Sadly the package has already been shipped. We are unable to change the address in transit. If your package shipped via UPS, you might be able to make a MyUPS account and update the address. If the package is returned to us and we must reship, you will have to pay for the second shipment as well as provide a new address
      Customs wants a printed Invoice
      You can print your invoice from the Pledge Manager, under Completed Orders. This is significantly faster than waiting for us to mail you a printout of that same page.
      Customs is billing me for import fees/duties/VAT
      While the majority of Canadian, EU, and AU backers are being shipped with methods that mean this will not be a problem, a small number of shipments may still come with such fees due. This was discussed in our Project FAQ you are responsible for any such fees.
      My Pledge Manager shows no Orders, or I have no Pledge Manager Account
      A created and complete Pledge Manager account is required for us to be able to fulfill your rewards. It is required for two reasons: 
      1) It supplies us with all of your contact and shipping information and  2) It details to us your list of rewards.  If you have this problem it is because you either never created a Pledge Manager account or you never updated and completed your existing Pledge Manager account. The occurrence of either of these events has created a problem for you. So before you contact us and tell us how bad and irresponsible we are in how we conduct a Kickstarter please review the following. 
      To remind you and encourage you to complete your Pledge Manager account we have:
      Included a large graphic link to create your Pledge Manager account right after the Stretch Goal Map in the body of the Kickstarter campaign.  Included step-by-step screen shot instruction on how to setup and use the Pledge Manager in the body of the Kickstarter campaign.  The Kickstarter FAQ contained several entries of important Pledge Manager information.  Since August 2015, 19 separate Kickstarter updates requested you complete and/or update your Pledge Manager. Kickstarter is considered the official channel of all updates. Not social media or direct emails.  In June of 2016, we sent emails to everyone with an incomplete Pledge Manager account requesting that they please take the time to complete their Pledge Manager.  We kept our Pledge Manager open for 10 months and a further 9 months we helped anyone who contacted us by opening up their Pledge Manager for them so they could complete their rewards order.  We have provided a reasonable amount of time for you to complete your part of this equation. Kickstarter Terms of Use state: The creator may need to send you questions about your reward: To deliver rewards, the creator might need information from you, like your mailing address or t-shirt size. They’ll request that information after the campaign has succeeded. To receive the reward, you’ll need to provide the information in a reasonable amount of time.
      Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/terms-of-use
      So what can you do? Please contact and we will attempt to work with you to find a solution. In your initial contact, please detail your extenuating circumstances, such as active military service and deployment to an Internet-restricted region. (If at all possible please do not start your contact with us by telling us how stupid we are. Believe it or not it will help you a great deal. Just sayin')
      Anything Else
      If you have any other questions, or a problem not discussed above, please contact us at help@reapermini.com with:
      your order number as found in your pledge manager, (Not your backer number) your full name, your shipping address, the email address associated with your pledge, a brief description of your issue.  We will do everything we can to help you. It is very likely we may need additional information from you after the initial contact, but this at least helps us get started. 
      Please DO NOT include screenshots or attachments of photographs of the miniatures or boxes when you email us unless we request it. Attachments are incredibly insecure, and we do not open attachments from untrusted and unknown sources. Emails with attachments will be deleted without being read. 
      Please remember that we have received over 4,000 emails in the last 3 weeks and we are going through them as fast as we can. If you are rude or abusive in your e-mail to us, or if your email is many paragraphs in length, we will move your e-mail to the end of the queue.
      Upcoming Convention Schedule
      We will be attending Origins Game Fair June 13th through June 18th. Because we are a small company, our customer service Team is also our Convention Crew, and we will be unable to process emails until we return. 
      Thank you for everything!
