Thematically designed dice for use with FATE and FUDGE based games.

[ IMPORTANT: For every $1.50 you pledge above $7.50 (which is the flat rate shipping fee for up to 100 dice), you will get ONE DIE, of any color you wish (Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, White). Just enter the amount directly, or simply select a pledge level for an amount. Shipping for more than 100 dice has to be calculated on an individual basis. ]

FATE is the tabletop roleplaying system used in the following games:

Problem is that most of these require special FATE / FUDGE dice to play, which don't come with the game, and are rather hard to find.

They look like these. Awesome, right? But good luck finding this set (which you totally should)!

So taking a classic heart monitor as inspiration, I've designed the 'Pulse' die, which use a 'pulse', and a 'flatline' to represent positive and negative instead of the traditional '+' and '-' . I find this more thematic to the kind of games I play.

A BETTER computer mockup than the last one :)

Pulse dice are 16mm in size and come in (Green, Red, Blue, Yellow, or White) on Black. The default is Green on Black, so if you prefer a different ink color, please specify it on the close of the Kickstarter. You can even mix it up, so for example if you want 1 Red on Black and 3 Green on Black that's totally possible.

Now in Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, and White (default Green).

I've enlisted the aid of Q-Workshop to manufacture and distribute them, which means you're not only getting some of the highest quality dice possible, but free shipping to anywhere in the world.

Profits will go towards getting these dice into the distribution channel, and forming a wide spectrum game design company to produce tabletop, board, and computer games.

One More Thing...

I want to prove that anyone with an idea (no matter how small or specific) passion, and discipline can succeed at Kickstarter. The only thing at stake is your pride, the only thing you're guaranteed to get is wisdom, and I think it's great we finally have such an opportunity available to us.

I also wanted to show that Fame and Money were less important than people kept saying, because that's the reason many of my friends had for not starting a Kickstarter project. Well, Fame is important, but you can BUILD Fame with a Kickstarter even when it 'fails'. And Money is important simply to purchase the physical advertising. Basically, while a product can speak for itself, it STILL needs those other factors to get the word out.

And Thank You...

...to all the local stores who were gracious enough to allow me to promote this Kickstarter in their stores:

...and to all the people who have done things like this before and been willing to take the time and answer my questions.

FAQ

  • There is a questionnaire that goes out at the end of this Kickstarter where you'll be able to select any combination of colors you want. The permutations were just too many to put into discrete pledge levels.

    Last updated:
  • One reason I've avoided it is simply that it takes extra room on the cards and flyers, but the word 'fudge' also inspires specific concepts I don't think fit with the brand I'm trying to create. In fact, the traditional dice markings (+, -) could be considered to be part of the Fudge dice brand expectation.

    In hindsight, this was a mistake, and I'm correcting this as much as I can.
