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.

      About
      Welcome to The Land and the world of Spitfyre, our exciting game of aerial warfare in a fantasy world. Enter a world where Dwarves and Orcs fly giant creatures and arm them with bombs and machine guns to continue their millennia long struggles... Come fight in the skies of Spitfyre and see if you can reign supreme over The Land!
      Spitfyre is a fun 'Historo-Fantasy' miniature aerial wargame in which 10mm scale miniatures are used to depict the everyday struggles of standard fantasy races such as Orcs and Dwarves fight out battles with 20th century weaponry.
      We are keeping this Kickstarter very simple with three basic pledge levels. The key one is 'Pilot' where pledgers will receive a discounted copy of the core game and ALL stretch goals added in FREE of charge.
      THE TARGET - £1000
      Spitfyre - the core game The target goal is to produce the core game which will include the rulebook, a flight of three 10mm scale resin Orc Spitfyre wyverns, a flight of four 10mm scale polyurethane resin Dwarf War-Eagles and seven flying bases.
      STRETCH GOAL I - £1500
      If we reach Stretch Goal I, all Pilot backers will have one polyurethane resin 10mm scale Dwarf KampfGrier 87 vulture dive bomber and flying base added to their pledge for free and the rules will be extended to include dive bombing.
       More Stretch Goals to come...

        Game Decor has partnered with a very talented 3D artist under the banner of “DungeonWorks” and has lauched a Kickstarter for a new line of high resolution 3D printer files for modular dungeons and accessories. There are currently 3 lines of models with a total of 7 uniquely themed dungeons containing over 400 models planned for release. The first line consists of locations of classic encounters, such as the gothic stone dungeon, the dank caverns, and the half timbered town, all of which is easily compatible among the majority of fantasy settings. The second line is inspired by iconic computer based dungeon crawling role playing games where legendary settings are yours to design. The third line is driven by a high fantasy setting with tales of epic proportions. Several more themes and expansions for each line are planned to be released afterwards.
       
      We are live now on Kickstarter

      A little info about the 3 lines

      “Classic Encounters” includes all your generic, classic settings. Basic dungeon, taverns, caves, city streets.

      “Vintage Vault” is about recreating those classic video games and even board games. Everything in the game is recreated here in tile form. Relive the adventures of old or create new ones.

      “Lost Realms” are deluxe sets. They're created just like a D&D module. There is an adventure theme already set out for a DM to build upon. So, these sets are heavily themed for instant adventuring.

      One thing unique about my series is that all the dungeons come with a detailed center piece entrance to really set the mood for a might adventure.

      I'd really like some feedback on what players and DMs would like to see. I've been in the RPG hobby since childhood and created a lot of this from a players perspective. I have around 200 free rewards to give out during the KS, but I'd really like to hear from you for more ideas.

      Please note, these are NOT Openlock models. This project has been in the works for more than a year, well before openlock was even released.

      Comet Lord Miniatures is making it's first series of monstrous miniatures for your tabletop games.
      The Eye Sovereign that views beholders as mere slaves to carry out its ill will? A mimic able to disguise itself as a regular sized chest as it waits to burst out and devour an unlucky adventurer whole?
      Comet Lord Miniatures is seeking to fund the production of its first line of miniatures through this Kickstarter campaign.
      This campaign will start with 2 miniatures including 'The Giant Mimic' and 'The Eye Sovereign'. Hopefully we'll expand this into a full series of miniatures through some stretch goals!
      All miniatures require assembly and will be shipped unpainted.

      Each of the miniatures will be made from high quality resin. The core miniatures for this campaign are both 'large sized' creatures and they are compatible with most 28mm scale tabletop map products. Turntable renders of the core miniatures

      BASE SYSTEM ROOTS 
      When I moved from hex map to miniature rules gaming, I struggled to find any decent affordable scenery. 
      Thus I decided to make some myself. These were sold online under the name of Mechanized Designworks. I found many other people liked them. 
      This led to my decision to make an entire range accessible to the public through DFA, in the form of the BASE System. With your support DFA intends to create the largest range of affordable, high quality modular 6mm scale scenery and buildings. With your continued support, the range has scope to expand indefinitely.
      BASE System sections will be made from 3D printed design originals. Each section will be individually hand-finished before casting in resin, creating a high-quality finish suitable for your choice of model paint. 
      BASE SYSTEM CORE  
       BASE Systems are modular.  
      Example BASE System layout with stand-alone buildings There are many buildings, from stand-alone structures and themed sets, to totally modular sets that allow players to build a base as big or small as they wish. A host of new building designs and base layouts can be created by simply repositioning individual sections; while the same parts can be endlessly reconfigured to provide new vistas for each game.  
       
       
      If you're looking to build a small outpost or firebase or a big planetary command centre for your games, BASE has you covered. Best of all: because BASE System is modular, you can take it apart and redesign it when setting up your next game.  
      Infinite possibilities and configurations await with BASE.
      Example of a large BASE system layout using modular parts BASE SYSTEM VISUAL  
      BASE offers a uniform look and feel across sets in the range. 
      While each module in a set is interchangeable, it will still conform to the overall chosen appearance of your tabletop. In addition, you can make sets look entirely different, yet cohesive, with a few additional components in different paint livery.
      EVOLVING YOUR BASE SYSTEM  
      Start small and go large … or start big.  
      Example of a small BASE System layout The choice is yours. The BASE System is available in box sets and individual components. You can evolve your BASE System at your own speed by adding components or sets as and when it suits you. (To help get you started with this, you will also receive two of some buildings at specific pledge levels.)
      Fire Control and HQ buildings  
      The Repair Bay contains 2 rigs, allowing you to switch between closed and open during your games.  
      The Geodesic Dome will feature a clear resin casting,allowing you to create features inside the structure.  
      The Class A Interstellar Communications set is just the first modular BASE system we hope to produce.
