The Dryad Tower & Tray in Ambrosia Maple, Purpleheart, and Leopardwood The Dryad Tower & Tray in Ambrosia Maple, Purpleheart, and Leopardwood

 The Dryad Gaming Co. Dice Tower & Tray is an extremely durable, obsessively made, and elegantly simple accessory for tabletop and role-playing games. 

My name is Ty.  I'm a professional woodworker, specializing is small products, made from domestic and exotic hardwoods.  I also love playing games.  That's why I've created Dryad Gaming Co. 

If you're a fan of Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, or other role-playing games, you're familiar with dice towers, and how they can improve your gaming experience. They keep your rolls random, on the table, and quick.  We all know that dice towers & trays are great, but there are a few things that set the Dryad towers & trays apart:

1. Real, Traditional Woodworking Joinery:  Constructed using actual woodworking joints, these towers and trays can hold up to bumps and tumbles.  The wood glue I use is among the toughest available.  These also do not use any magnets or "non-traditional" fasteners that can be defeated by a rogue elbow. 

2. Built for travel:  At around 6 and half inches tall, these are smaller than most dice towers on the market. These take up very little space, and can easily be tucked away in a bag or purse.  The Dryad Tower also isn't so big that you can't see your friends or battlemap. 

3. Durable and Perfect for Metal Dice:  In addition to the tough construction of the Dryad Tower & Tray, it is also finished with an incredibly durable oil-urethane blend. The finish has resins that penetrate the wood fibers and harden.  The finish looks and feels great.  Oh, and it's totally safe to roll metal dice in these!

Every Tower & Tray is Available in 14 Different Hardwoods

The Naiad Series includes White Oak, Maple, Walnut, Ambrosia Maple, and Cherry.  Nothing has been dyed or stained; the wood is naturally this beautiful.

I applaud the creators enthusiasm for his product, but I'm sticking with my Unique Dice Towers.

I really want to support his guy.  I'll probably get one, but I need to think on it. I wish it were a nice dice box instead. That I need as my old one is falling apart.

Could always ask if he'd be willing to add a dice box option?

Perhaps as a stretch goal.

There's a KS going on right now for a dice box shaped like a d20 that looks cool. But may back this one, I need a good tower.

      A kickstarter from a company called Rebel Minis, who I have no experience with;

      It looks like quite a good way to get a large number of figures, all rather old-school and not at all expensive.
       
      There is an early-bird add-on of a goblin pack-bearer, which I like the look of.

      Hey folks
       
      We just launched the Kickstarter campaign for our new rulebook! The Gangfight Skirmish Game System lets you play skirmish battle games in any setting you want, with any miniatures you want! The core rules have universal skills and equipment that can work for many settings, and will also include additional rules for Fantasy and Sci Fi games, like magic or high tech weaponry.
       
      The campaign is set to run through the beginning of September, and our goal is just to fund the core rulebook to get our new game system up and running. Check out our campaign here:

      I really enjoyed a previous project (Half-Cat, though hampered by problems with Chinese printers).
      This one is live, and finished in 6 days.
      Some seriously short flash fiction postcards.

      The City that Dripped Blood
      An Adventure for Fifth Edition and Swords & Wizardry!
      Frog God Games is proud to announce The City that Dripped Blood, the first in a four part series centered in and around the city Temelpa.  This mid-level adventure is written by D & D Legend Steve Winter, whose credits include over 30 years of best selling games, adventures, and supplements for some of the most popular RPG companies in the industry.  He has played a part in many of the most beloved titles from Star Frontiers to the Fifth Edition rule books. He was a contributor most recently to the Frog God Games' Quests of Doom 4 series. Steve's incredible legacy and experience in the RPG world makes The City that Dripped Blood a perfect Indiegogo project debut title. 
      Overview
      Temelpa, an ancient walled city on a forgotten trade route, thought to be abandoned ages ago, and now, the adventurers find themselves besieged within. 
      Unable to leave their refuge, the adventurers will quickly discover the city is inhabited, not deserted as initially believed, by an ancient society. They will soon be embroiled in the affairs of a twisted caste system built on servitude and cannibalism and headed by an inter-dimensional vampiric overlord.
      This open-ended adventure allows the GM to unleash an array of unique monsters, factional power struggles, and intriguing plots upon the characters as they fight and scheme to stay alive, entrapped in a hostile city where they are viewed as useful pawns or a tasty exotic meal.
      Can the characters hold out until the siege is broken and escape with their lives? Will they champion the cause of the downtrodden and upend the social order? Or will they be the main course for the next cannibalistic feast?
      Welcome to the City!
      The Adventure
      The City That Dripped Blood - available in either Fifth Edition or Swords & Wizardry versions, is an adventure for mid-level characters inside you will find-
      New creatures and new variants NPC Cultists and unusual citizens are spread across various districts and factions. All under the shadow of the two ziggurats which stand menacing guard over the decrepit. desert city where the player characters begin. Options for and potential hooks are provided, but the design lends itself to modifications, GM tailored for their ongoing campaigns.
       
      The Tiny Print Run
      Why Indiegogo?
      Frog God Games is testing a new approach with the launch of this project- almost the inverse of how we design our crowdfunding projects on Kickstarter. We call it the 'Tiny Print Run'.
      Thus, Indiegogo projects by Frog God Games will-
      Be short in duration Be limited to a single title Have options priced between $5-$30 Have simple fulfillment process that does not use Backerkit Since 2012 our crowdfunding approach has been extravagant in every way. Ambitious with massive page counts, plus numerous add-on options and stretch goals. All supporting a primary title itself as many as 990 pages.
      This has resulted in Kickstarter's with memorable pledge rewards that include top-quality hardcover books with sometimes dozens of stretch goal bonuses and add-on extras. These are awesome AND they are expensive.
      Is Frog God Games giving up on Kickstarter?
      No. Far from it, in fact these smaller projects are happening in response to the feedback we have heard from both fans and 'almost' fans alike. We hear the request for less expensive options for our projects and products all the time. A second frequent desire expressed to us, whether at conventions, on social media or in email, is for a larger selection of smaller, faster-paced adventures that can be completed in 2-3 sessions and not necessitate a full two year campaign.
      Additionally,  Frog God Games has grown in both sales and audience awareness.  This opportunity will give us the additional resources to invest in the very best books in all of our formats. Thus we have launched the first of, what we hope are frequent, 'Tiny Print Run' campaigns on Indiegogo.
      Project Reward
      With the wishes of the fans in mind, this and future Indiegogo projects will fund standalone projects that are both affordable and fun. This project, as well future Tiny Print Run projects, is narrowly focused. This meansThe City that Dripped Blood  will only have two reward options-
      1. A softcover, full-color copy of The City that Dripped Blood which is at least 24 pages long and includes the PDF version
      or
      2. The City that Dripped Blood in PDF
      There will be no paid add-on options and all additional funds raised focus on making the highest quality module the funding can buy.  Supporters will select a rules system when they make the reward selection. For City that Dripped Blood that is a choice between Fifth Edition or Swords & Wizardry (other systems or system agnostic content is possible with future projects).
      As of the project launch The City that Dripped Blood  manuscript is complete for Fifth Edition. It is currently being edited and converted to Swords & Wizardry. The module will be published, what is unknown is how much we raise to improve this release for everyone.
      What more supporters will mean for the project
      The level of quality we want to bring to The City of Dripped Blood is, at a minimum, similar softcover releases from larger companies. An example of this is a Wizards of the Coast Adventurer's League softcover. We have the potential to do even better and that is what 18 days will be focused on.
      The best way surpass our quality goal for every supporter (PDF only and/or Print and PDF) is-
      Commission more art from top artists Create more cartography pieces/offer more mapping resources Create PDF player handouts like creature cards or treasure maps Other options that are cutting edge and unique which only funding makes possible The first and most important is to invest in top-quality, custom color art beginning with the cover. At Frog God we have a dedicated gentleman named Casey Christofferson whose job it is to procure great art. His only constraint is his budget, which is were supporters like you come in.

      The biggest milestone will be upgrading from a planned half-page illustration to a full-page color cover by a top artist similar to the examples above. After we have enough funding for the cover we will add additional internal art pieces (possibly full page).
      Softcover Specific Goals
      The best paper we can afford. Glossy durable pages that showcase the art as it deserves. A thick, glossy cover stock Maps/charts/tables reprinted on the interior covers for reference (duplex cover printing) Signed copies and a few really special options if the funding really takes off NOTE ON AVAILABILITY: The softcover is likely to be a single print run. The number of units we print will be determined by how many supporters choose the The City of Dripped Blood softcover. We have no plans to offer the softcover for general sale after this project ends, so this is the best way to guarantee a copy for yourself in print.
      Shipping and Distribution
      Shipping is simple for those who select the a softcover copy of The City of Dripped Blood. 
      Softcover Shipping
      $5 shipping fee will be added upon checkout for supporters in the United States. $15 shipping fee will be added upon checkout for supporters in the European Union, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. The PDF that comes with the softcover option will be fulfilled as outlined below. PDF Distribution
      The digital copies will be fulfilled using the Frog God Games Website. There will be no pledge manager so once the book or PDF is ready we will fulfill using contact information from Indiegogo.
