Dice of Rolling

Recommended Posts

 

About this project

It seems like no matter how many dice you buy, you still never have enough d6s... meanwhile, your collection of unnecessary d20s keeps getting bigger. 

Dice of Rolling are not rocket science. They’re just regular dice that come in the amounts you actually need, and they use color for more than just decoration. One simple purchase, and you’re good to go for most of the situations you’ll encounter in the 5th edition of the world's greatest roleplaying game. And since each dice type is a different color, you'll always grab the right ones. It’s kind of a no-brainer, but nobody else is doing it so we're bringing it to Kickstarter. 

This is the dice set we’ve always wanted for our table, and with your help we can bring it to tables everywhere!

We’re keeping the rewards real simple. You can pledge to receive 1, 2, 4, or 20 sets, and each set will include the same 29 color-coded dice + microfiber dice bag.

Cool idea. Shame it's US only or I'd share it with my group, we have three newer players who are always borrowing dice for big rolls.

... but getting tons of d20 with your dice sets is important, so you can shun the ones who rolled badly!

 

It's a great idea though, at least for people who buy dice more responsibly and don't just hoard them bc they're pretty.

This is a great idea if you only wanted one "complete" dice set. Otherwise it messes with the whole plan where each set of dice follows its own color pattern.

I actually like the die-color-coding approach.  It's one reason why, once upon a time, when Toy Liquidators still existed, and a miniatures game called "Battle Bowl" came out, I got several boxes on dirt-cheap clearance JUST FOR THE DICE.  Why?  Because it had a full set of polygonal dice, with a different color for each die type.  At the time, I hoped it would help speed things up with the sorts of game systems I was using at the time that required LOTS of different types of dice (Deadlands Classic, and Ironclaw).  (The trouble was, even with several packs of Battle Bowl, and although it WAS a decent price compared to buying polygonal dice new at a game store, it was really only enough for maybe one or two players.  Those games were really dice-crazy.)

 

Since then, however, it's not been quite as extreme of an issue, and I just use whatever dice I come across cheaply -- but I still think it's a neat idea.

 

IMHO, caltrops (AKA d4s) ought to be BRIGHT AND GARISH colors, like screaming neon orange, rather than relatively subtle purple, in order to provide any sort of boost to the chance to detect it on the floor before stepping on it.  That's always a plus.  :)

My hang up is that if all the players have this set of dice, keeping a set together will become a nightmare at game night conclusion. I don't know about you guys, but dice rolling can get a bit chaotic at my table. 

 

"...... erg... why do I only have 7 d6? And 3 d12?"  And that's if they notice or bother to take an inventory. 

 

I don't know. Maybe it wouldn't be an issue.

But for $20 I could pick up another 100+ Wiz dice pack off of Amazon.  Admittedly you can't pick your color that way, but if several people buy one you can trade for sets...

 

For these guys I'm just not big on their choice of colors.

I think it's a cool idea, and great for new players, it just doesn't fill a need for me.  Once you've been role-playing a while you already have more dice than you need.

Do you not obsessively count your dice at the beginning and end of every session, organizing them into little squads of color-coordinated goodness, with each die with its highest number face up to properly charge it while waiting for use?

No, they go in a pile in front of me. I have dice dating back to the 70s I'm over it.

i'm not really feeling this.  the dice look like starter dice that came in the old tsr boxed sets to me.  color coding is interesting.  I might see about doing that with my play dice bag.  

 

it good for someone just starting.  but I've got a zillion dice already.

      This Kickstarter campaign is a collaboration between legendary game designer Jennell Jaquays and sculptor Darcy Perry, following the appearance of ducks in the previous Star Hat Miniatures Kickstarter: Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III. 
      This is also an opportunity for YOU to contribute! With the Legendary Hero pledge, YOU can collaborate with us to bring new characters to the Quack Keep module and gaming table.
      The Module  
      This Kickstarter will provide funds for Quack Keep - inspired by classic game adventure modules of the past but written to be more approachable for a new generation of role-players and workable with a wide range of game rules thanks to the 5th Wall Generic Rank System. It even comes with a fold-out GM screen as a cover!
       
      The title is a nod to Quag Keep, the first novel based on a roleplaying game, published by Andre Norton in 1978 - around the same time that Jennell Jaquays began producing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Runequest modules for Judges Guild. The Caverns of Thracia and Dark Tower are both best-selling examples of her early work, both still in print after almost 40 years.  
      The later inspired Legendary Duck Tower and other Tales, which included a ducky-pastiche of her original Dark Tower cover. It was due to this and her work for Chaosium that Jennell Jaquays "was pretty much labeled as that designer and artist who did the ducks."
       
       
       
      Eldritch SwanSong.  
      Father Quack.  
      Froduck.  
      Glen Fidduck.  
      The Grey Moulter.  Join us for an adventure with Ducks Lost in the Dungeons of Doom IV: Quack Keep!
      Legendary Duck! YOU be the HERO! Stretch Goals
      There is a Stretch Goal unleashed for every 1k funding goal reached and each one is a game changer: a new Duck will appear! Either a new Duck Hero or Legendary Duck will be made available for you to choose as part of your pledge.
      1k Stretch Goal Unleashed: Oduck!  
      2k Stretch Goal Unleashed: The Quack Knight!  
       
       
      Glen Fidduck is almost a must-have for me ;)

      About this project
      Samples of painted resins supplied by Studio Giraldez. Resin masterclass models supplied unpainted Strap in and blast off! The Starfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a bold science-fantasy explorer, investigating the mysteries of a weird and magical universe as part of a starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Don rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you'll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or find brand new planets to explore. Whether you're making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you'll need each other.
      ADVENTURE: The Starfinder Adventure Pledge level is a great entry point for the start of your collection of Masterclass figures. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 6 Hero Slots and 4 Encounter Pack Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      CAMPAIGN: The Starfinder Campaign Pledge level is the perfect pledge for the miniature enthusiast. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 12 Hero Slots, 6 Encounter Pack Slots, 2 Fleet Pack Slots, and 4 Creature Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      Stretch Goals are items that unlock as the campaign reaches new heights. More options for heroes, encounter packs, creatures, and fleets will be revealed over time. There are three types of goals: Freebies, Optionals, and Social Media Stretch Goals.
      Freebies will be added to the Adventure Pledge and Campaign Pledge as soon as they unlock. Optionals will provide additional options to use on those Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet Slots. Social Media unlocks depend on the number of shares the following post receives on Paizo and Ninja Division’s Facebook pages.
      How the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Slot System Works
      To offer the most customizable pledge rewards possible we have developed the Kickstarter Slot System. There are 4 kinds of Slots: Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet. The Adventure and Campaign pledges come not only with specific models but several types of Slots to customize the pledge. Every item option has a Slot type and cost. Additional Slots beyond those in the Adventure and Campaign Pledge can be purchased for the cost listed in the Additional Slots section. As the campaign progresses and more stretch goals are unlocked the type of Slot and cost of each unlocked model will be listed in the appropriate section.
      Freebie Stretch goals add one free model or upgrade to the pledge. Additional models of that unlocked Freebie may be purchased as listed in the appropriate section.
      HEROES: Each Hero represents an individual pulled from the varied Starfinder races, character classes, and themes. These heroes double as playable characters and non-player characters, providing numerous options for players and gamemasters alike!
      ENCOUNTER PACK: Encounter Packs include a mix of creatures and hero-like characters that the heroes may encounter in their adventures. Each pack is designed to supply figures for a standard encounter. More ambitious adventurers may encounter larger groups so it never hurts to get multiples of each encounter pack!
