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.

      Welcome to the Infinity RPG Kickstarter, help us fund an RPG based on the massive Infinity skirmish miniatures game!

      The Infinity universe was launched by Corvus Belli as a hugely-popular tabletop skirmish game in which sci-fi themed miniatures simulated futuristic battles across the alien battlefronts of Paradiso and the internecine conflicts of the Human Sphere. Before there was a skirmish game, though, there was an RPG: Infinity started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Corvus Belli founders Alberto, Carlos, Fernando, and Gutier. We've been playtesting the Infinity RPG with hundreds of people for the last 9 months, working hard to recapture the excitement of those first sessions and ensure that the feel of the Infinity universe will be captured in your own campaign!
      This Kickstarter has funded the production of a beautiful full colour, hardback 368 page core rulebook for the roleplaying game. It will be sent out in PDF in December and the printed books in February 2016. We are also going to fund Faction supplements, campaign, amazing geomorphic tiles, custom dice, accessories, upgrades to increase the content in certain books and much more.

      In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso Front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a desperate defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity’s armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity’s fractious forces should falter, then all may be lost…
      But beyond that terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the Human Sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientist adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchant guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercorps struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.
      For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli’s hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science fiction roleplaying game.

      Play with the full dynamic 2d20 game system featuring:
      Cinematic action driven by the twin engines of Heat and Momentum The triple battlefields of Warfare, Infowar, and Psywar A multifaceted Zones system which brings the game world to life All New Artwork of the Infinity universe commissioned by Modiphius and Corvus Belli Find out more about the 2d20 System further down the page Explore the definitive guide to the Infinity universe with: A complete Chronology of the Human Sphere detailing centuries of bloodshed The culture, history, and intrigue of seven powerful factions Gazetteers for all twelve planets of the Human Sphere, including beautiful, full-color maps Leap into your character by: Forging your identity with an immersive Lifepath character creation system Fighting for your faction with the fractious, innovative Wilderness of Mirrors scenario design system Facing dozens of fearsome, ready-to-play adversaries who stand between you and your destiny! A 368 page book packed with everything you need to roleplay in the Human Sphere and beyond!
      Here are our popular Pledge Levels, we'll be adding more as they are unlocked. Note: There will be more Bostria Art Pledges for the Core and Supplements unlocked, we'll send an update before they are so you have a chance to grab one
