Black Oak Workshop is back in black with a d20 that gives no quarter - The Black Death! We are sure you will agree, this d20 will reign supreme on your game table. All other dice will quiver in fear before it!

The Black Death crushes all other dice!
The Black Death crushes all other dice!

Standing at almost an inch tall and featuring a skull on the 20 face, this mighty d20 will allow you to go medieval on all those who oppose you! Reach into your dice bag and draw forth the deadliest d20 available!

The Black Death is as fearsome in appearance as it is in name! Many tales of woe will be wrought by its cold, silent faces. Check out some of the deadly features detailed below.

This die towers above lesser dice. The size of the Black Death along with its crisply presented numerals means it is easy to read while being frightening to behold!

We've worked to offer some unique and exciting exclusives as part of this project. In addition, we've got some GREAT stretch goals. Our backers from previous projects know that we focus on creating value within our projects and we think the stretch goals really show this. Read on!

Each of these exclusives are part of this project only and will not be available again after the project closes (except the Coin & Blood PDF) so get yours while you can! Each of these items are associated to a specific pledge level and will not be available separately in the pledge manager. For backer levels that include physically shipped exclusives on this project, we are only shipping to the USA.

Not just any dice box can contain the insidious Black Death. We asked Dog Might Games to design a dice box worthy of the theme and they returned with a killer design! This dice box features a skeletal coffin top and black finish that pairs exceptionally well with this stone cold d20. It can hold a dozen Black Death d20s with ease.

As with the exclusive dice boxes from our Dragon d20 project, this dice box is based on Dog Might's Dragon Sheath product line and comes in their Abyssal Black Flame Birch. It matches the theme perfectly!

Dog Might really came through for us on the Dragon d20 project and our backers LOVED the dice boxes. We are excited to have the opportunity to work with them again!

This item is available to ship to US backers only.

Let your Black Death d20s roll in style through the winding stairwells of Skull Keep! This dice tower brings all the theme and then some. At a full 12" tall, this 3d modeled and printed tower is a sight to behold. These towers come fully assembled and hand painted in the likeness of the photos. You will be ready to roll upon the opening of your rewards shipment! 

This tower is based on designs licensed from Fat Dragon Games and also modified designs from the Dragonbite Community Creator program. The Skull Keep is a sturdy and well crafted tower. It will last you many years and look incredible on your game shelf!

There have been questions regarding availability of the STL files for the Skull Keep model, but these will not be available as part of the project as they are not owned by Black Oak Workshop. We do not have an agreement in place that allows for release of the files, so we will not be offering those this go around. Thanks for understanding everyone!

NOTE: Due to the work required for these beautifully hand painted items, the quantity is limited to 30 (updated from 20). The reward level is limited and if all 30 are taken, there will be no option to purchase this item in the pledge manager. If any do remain, they will be available on a first-come/first-served basis. This item is available to ship to US backers only.

If you need to take death to the next level, we have you covered! The Epic Death is an utterly HUGE d20 that stands a full 6.5 inches on your game table! This is a hand painted and assembled item using 3d printed faces and a tough rubber frame - it's light, but rugged. You can roll it with no fear - that's right - this mega d20 can be rolled and used in game!

This is an exclusive, custom variation on the Giant D20 by Amber's Secret Cove. You can view the standard product here. These huge dice are awesome fun to toss on the table or put on the shelf for display and are well rated by customers. Check out this monster in action!

NOTE: Due to the work required to assemble these, the quantity is limited to 50 (updated from 25). The reward level is limited and if all 50 are taken, there will be no option to purchase this item in the pledge manager. If any do remain, they will be available on a first-come/first-served basis. This item is available to ship to US backers only.

While not truly an exclusive, we are partnering with the fine folks at Gallant Knight Games to once again offer one of their killer RPGs as a fun addition to the project. For Coin & Blood is another one of many well-received products by the GKG team and we feel it is a great thematic pairing for the Black Death!

For Coin & Blood is a classically inspired d20 fantasy roleplaying game with a twist...a twist of the knife!
For Coin & Blood is a classically inspired d20 fantasy roleplaying game with a twist...a twist of the knife!

This game has received very positive reviews and is a great read. We're very honored to be able to offer it to you here at as a PDF bundle with our dice or as the PDF with a print on demand code to get a physical copy. Check out the game on DriveThruRPG!

Embracing the literary genre known as "grimdark", and inspired by stories of mercenaries, sellswords and blackguards, FOR COIN & BLOOD keeps you on your toes, as you tell stories about the terrible things that happen to people, when they head out in search of coin, passion, and revenge...

Clearly, this is a most excellent game in which to sling your Black Death d20s! We're offering two pledge levels for this item. The first includes a PDF download of the game and the other includes the PDF and a code for a free softcover POD copy of the game! These are both excellent values for this product! For backers ordering the POD version, the physical book will ship separate from the other rewards on the project.

NOTE: The Coin & Blood PDF will be available in the pledge manager post project for $6, so for those backers who would like to receive a copy it will be available there. However, the POD code will not be available in the pledge manager.

All shipments will be processed through the United States Postal Service. Domestic (USA) orders will ship utilizing First-Class Service and International orders will ship utilizing First-Class Package International Service. All rewards will be packed securely in an effort to minimize risk of damage during shipping. Tracking numbers are emailed to backers at the email address on file with BackerKit upon printing of the respective shipping label.

For our International backers, we are adding a note that the shipping costs are reflective of what the USPS charges us. We do not have overseas distribution and likely will not for some time as we are a small shop. As we grow, we hope to be able to get those costs down for  you as we know they are painful. All tariffs/taxes/fees associated with international shipments are the responsibility of the receiving party.

NOTE: For backer levels that include exclusives on this project, we are only shipping to the USA. We cannot risk lost international shipments for these items as replacements will not be possible.

NOTE: We do not ship to the Russian Federation or the DPRK.

Risks and challenges

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.
