A Call To Arms! Stylized Damage Dice for Martial Weapons

$2,836

88

Welcome to Black Oak's third Kickstart Project!
We are continuing with our custom dice designs and are offering up a new line featuring martial weapons used by warriors and clerics. These dice will be a unique addition to your dice collection!

A Call to Arms!
A Call to Arms!

Description
The Call to Arms dice are standard 16mm d6's with a custom image on each face. As with our previous dice projects, they will feature a relief with ink design and the will be molded, not screen-printed. The base color scheme of the dice is white with black coloring.

The Berserker
The Berserker

The goal is to create a die that can be used to represent a d2, d3 or d6 to accommodate the various damage ranges based on opponent/wielder size differences. While this can be done with any old d6, we wanted to offer something with a cool look!

The Oathsworn
The Oathsworn

There are currently three dice in the Call to Arms set with each providing a different weapon type theme. The Berserker covers axes, the Kingmaker features swords and the Oathsworn ends the series with blunt weapons such as maces and hammers. If these do well, we plan to follow up with similar dice for other classes including rogues and wizards.

Preview images of each of the dice in the various color options can be seen on our website.

Each die in the set features a thematic power symbol on 3 of the die faces (skull, crown and gauntlet). The power symbol serves as an indicator of higher damage based on how the die is being used (see below).

Three Dice Set
The Call to Arms dice are offered (primarily) as a 3 die set featuring one of each of the three designs. As reward levels increase, so do the number of sets included. Offering the dice as a set allows us to have a better grasp on projected costs which will make the project risk drop significantly.

On our last project, we learned some backers did not prefer to have each type of die. We heard those concerns and so we are presenting some limited reward levels that will allow those backers who do not prefer full sets the freedom to choose a specific design.

Colors!
In addition to the base die color (white), additional colors are possible for this project. At each target Stretch Goal level below, one of these new colors will become available. This color will be chosen through backer feedback during the funding period. Once the funding period has ended, backers will be able to pick which colors they would like to receive as part of the survey process (backers may choose any mix of unlocked colors). It's that simple!

The Call to Arms dice set features some new color options we have not offered before. Based on backer feedback, we may research offering additional colors. The stretch goal colors available to be voted on are:

Beige with Black ink
Blue with Black ink
Gray with Black Ink
Navy with White ink
Red with Black ink

You can visit our website for visual representations of all the color options. Note that a slight color variation may be present for color options other than white. I.e., the final die may be a slightly different hue/shade than the visual image presented.

As Stretch Goals are reached, we'll update the below image to show what new color has been selected by the backers. If need be, we will expand the chart below to accommodate higher backing levels.

 Add-Ons
Additional Call to Arms dice will be available as add-ons. Backers can add on any number of additional dice in any mix of available colors. Bullseye Arrow & Dagger dice from our previous projects are also available (see below). Each add-on die will be $4. For every 10 add on dice, add $1 to cover the added shipping. Please contact us though messaging on Kickstart or our website to purchase add-ons or simply adjust your pledge level to reflect your add-ons and we will determine exactly what you'd like to receive via survey after the Kickstart completes.

Fulfillment Timeframe
As soon as the Kickstart project is complete (assuming successful funding), the fulfillment process will begin. Expected leadtime for the dice is approximately 8 weeks. During that time, we will be making preparations to ship to minimize delay once the dice are in hand. After the dice are received by Black Oak, we will begin shipping immediately. Based on the number of backers, we anticipate all shipments to be handed off to the USPS within 7-10 days. All shipments will be processed through the United States Postal Service and the default service utilized will be First Class. All rewards will be packed securely in an effort to minimize risk of damage during shipping.

Manufacturer
We continue to be pleased with the dice received from Q-workshop and will move forward with them again on this project. Q-workshop has a proven record of meeting production schedules and providing a quality product! We feel great about this partnership!

 

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to present a series of new and exciting Kickstart projects to potential backers in the future. To do that, we recognize that establishing a reputation of providing a quality product while reliably fulfilling orders is crucial to building trust with our backers.

If funded, our priority will be to meet or exceed backer expectations. We structure our Kickstart projects with a goal of minimizing risks and challenges in an effort to help build confidence in our backers:

* Straightforward design
* Visual representation of the final product
* Partner with an established production vendor
* Research and capture all costs
* Provide regular project status updates
* Communicate any issues as they arise

Given the successful fulfillment and positive backer feedback from our earlier projects, we are confident that we can and will meet our stated goals.
