The Parsec for RPG's
The "Parsec" is an innovative dice, miniature, and rolling tray storage system designed to store and organize your RPG accessories.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, October 25 2018 1:31 PM UTC +00:00.
The Parsec for RPG's is the latest innovation from master craftsman Aaron Cain and the second design under the Parsec Banner.
The Parsec is a minimalist box designed for Role Playing Games like Pathfinder and Dungeons and Dragons. Unlike other boxes designed for RPG storage the Parsec incorporates premium hardwoods at an economical price point. The Parsec provides foam lined storage for your prized miniature and two sets of standard 16mm polyhedral dice. The felt lined lid has been precision machined to act as a personal rolling tray to contain those Critical Hits. The Parsec is held together with 8 high strength Neodymium rare earth magnets which securely keep the parsec closed with NO dice rattle.
The world class strength and durability of wood make it an ideal material for providing excellent protection while showing off its natural beauty. You only get authentic exotic wood species. No stains or dyes are used during the finishing process.
The hand rubbed oil / wax finish lets the parsec become the centerpiece of any gaming experience.
Not all miniatures are equal. The different thickness foams will allow you to customize the pressure placed on you prized mini. Free with every Parsec order
Need more room for dice? Don't need the space for a mini? We got you covered with this alternative 22 die capacity parsec. Other parsec designs will be unlocked as the campaign progresses.
Quartersawn Sychamore (Unlocked) - $72
Bubinga (unlocked) $84
The "Mirage Edition" allows two wood species to be weaved together down the middle of the box. This process is incredibly labor intensive and produces truly stunning and unique effects.
Dear Kickstarter Backer,
My name is Aaron Cain. I have been a wood worker since 2001 and an gaming enthusiast since 1993. I started my wood working journey shortly after college and marriage to my wonderful wife Heather. We were poor homeowners with not very much furniture and it seemed pointless to buy lower quality furniture that would ultimately break soon after it was purchased. I set my goal of designing and building every piece of furniture in our home with an expectation of it becoming an antique that could be passed down to our children.
In 2011 a friend inquired about the construction of some simple deck boxes to store MTG cards. Since all of the furniture was complete and I still had a garage full of tools, I set my eyes on making a few extra bucks by selling deck boxes on eBay. Soon after your ideas for new deck boxes started flooding in and some of those ideas have also become part of what I offer.
In 2016 because of the generosity of the gaming community I have took a leap of faith. I quit my job as a High School Physics / Chemistry teacher and now work full time to serve you! My goal is the same as it was when I started this adventure, "Build every box with the expectation of it becoming an antique, that can be passed down to others."
Thank you for your support,
Premium Materials and Finishes:
Only select premium hardwood is ever chosen for a project. The wood has been professionally Kiln dried for stability and is never stained or dyed in any way. The professional grade finish applied is hand rubbed onto the surface providing a durable and natural sheen. You only get the highest quality materials and finishes.
We pride our self on choosing only the highest quality wood for all projects we do. We understand that wood needs to be harvested in a sustainable way to ensure these beautiful species will be around for generations. Because of this only select hardwood providers are chosen for there dedication to sustainability leaving minimal impact on the environment. This is never the cheapest option, but it is one we can live with. Conservation is the state of harmony between people and land.
Risks and challenges
This is a low risk project. Everything is handcrafted at our shop in Slinger, WI which has been in business since 2011. It is our fourth project we are doing through Kickstarter. The previous three projects were funded and the boxes were shipped on time or ahead of schedule.
The last seven years we have been producing high quality MTG custom deck boxes for players all over the world and have had the privilege to have our boxes amazing players everywhere from the LGS to WotC R&D. We have already completed the prototypes and essentially are utilizing Kickstarter so that we might be able to have access to a larger variety of wood and product than we would be able to otherwise.
We pride ourselves on delivering a quality product on time and without delay so we are limiting the number of Early Bird Tier to guarantee that we can ship that amount by June but would like to be able to ship additional orders sooner than expected as well, however because of possible demand and a high number of orders of our other products we cannot promise that we would have them sooner than the stated date.
There is also the logistics of making all of the many wood combinations available to the customer. Our staff is dedicated to making sure you get the option you desire and continue to make the highest quality gaming boxes on the market. We are excited to see what you want and can’t wait to start crafting for you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
