Chain Breaker – RPG Dice
Beautiful d6 dice for board games and tabletop rpgs with a beautiful wrapped chain design instead of plain numbers or dots.
Welcome To Our Project
My name's Gary and I started Fablestone Dice back in 2015 to create awesome dice for tabletop gaming (particularly role playing games) that don't rely on normal numbers or counting dots.
So far, we have run two successully Kickstarter projects (Fablestone Dice: Bone Origins and Bone Origins – Polyhedral Dice) which thanks to all of our truly awesome backers were both huge successes. These projects brought life into our first original dice design (the Bone Origins dice) and later it's polyhedral versions.
We are now back with our third and most exciting project yet, with a BRAND NEW dice design.
...The Chain Breaker - RPG Dice!
These are a stunning collection of eight fantasy RPG inspired dice, which all feature the design of a single chain wrapped around the dice instead of using plain old numbers.
With this project, we hope to bring these beautiful dice into production. And I hope that you will want to be a part of this exciting adventure.
How To Read The Chain
The Chain Breaker dice don't have any numbers or pips, but can still be used as regular six-sided dice.
The dice feature a single chain which wraps around each one in a single endless loop.
To use the dice, the value for each side is how many parts that side is split into by the chain. In other words, count the empty spaces created by the chain – not the chain itself.
The patterns of the chain on each side have been carefully chosen to make each an easily recognisable symbol so there is no need to count each time – just like the sides of normal dice.
The blank side, with no chain through it, is worth one. Each of the eight different Chain Breaker colors feature their own unique artwork on the otherwise blank 'one' side.
These designs explore the concept of chains in a different direction, within a role playing setting.
Eight Awesome Dice... One Collection
We are doing things a little differently with this project, and unlocking ALL EIGHT of the Chain Breaker colors as part of the project's base funding.
These eight colors are all available to choose now for your reward, with no stretch goals required to unlock them.
The eight different colors/designs make for an engaging and cohesive collection for role playing games.
In addition to being working dice, colors such as "The Armory", "The Goblin" and "The Necromancer" can also be used as player/enemy markers.
The possibilities for using these versatile dice within your games is endless.
We will also be adding new additional colors as stretch goals, as the project develops, which will be chosen by you, the backers, throughout the campaign.
To bring these epic dice into production, we do need your support.
If you would like to become a supporter of this project (please accept a huge thank you!), you will receive your own set(s) of Chain Breaker dice, and can choose from any of the reward tiers below.
The mix-and-match "Adventurer Set" and "Epic Adventurer Set" reward tiers also allow you to mix-and-match your dice in any color combinations that you would like.
As a backer, you will also receive plenty of communication and updates along the way.
I also strive to provide opportunities for backers to help influence our projects' directions wherever possible, with votes and other involvements.
If we manage to exceed our funding goal of £15,000, then we will be able to add additional colors to the project.
These will be voted for and chosen by you, the backers, during the project's campaign. So do get involved early, to have your say.
Once unlocked these colors will also be available to choose for your rewards, just like any other.
Let's see where this project takes us...
Materials And Samples
All of the Chain Breaker dice will be 16mm across in size and made from beautiful blends of high quality resin.
The artwork and the chain design will both be molded/engraved into the the surface and painted.
The above CGI renders are for illustration only and though we will strive to replicate each of the different color concepts as closely as possible, due to the nature of physical manufacturing there may be some slight differences between these and the final dice.
Gold and silver refer to the color and effect of the paint only – no actual precious metals will be used. As awesome as that would be!
We will manufacture samples of each color before mass production to ensure a stunning result in every color, with multiple rounds of samples and development where necessary.
As with all our projects, I will be carrying out a rigorous QA inspection and individually checking every single one of the dice before they are included in any of your rewards. This ensures that only the very best quality dice make it to your door.
I am extremely passionate about the QA process and ensuring we deliver the highest quality dice for all of our backers.
Extra Dice (Add-ons)
Add-ons are available to expand all of the rewards with additional Chain Breaker dice.
For the "Single Set" reward tier, a second set of 4 dice (in a different color) can be added to your reward by pledging an additional £8.
For the "Adventurer Sets" (including "Epic" and Early Bird rewards), additional mix-and-match dice can be added by pledging an additional £6 for 4 extra dice.
The add-ons can be added as many times as you would like.
Bone Origins Dice (Add-ons)
Sets of Bone Origins six-sided dice, featured in our previous projects, can also be added to your reward tier as an add-on.
These are all in the Bone Ivory color, with a realistic bone-like appearance.
To add Bone Origins dice to your reward, please pledge an additional £8 per 4 dice if you are a backer of the "Single Set" reward tier, or £6 per 4 dice if you are a backer of any of the "Adventurer Sets" (including "Epic" and Early Bird tiers).
Other colors and the polyhedral variations of the Bone Origins dice are available from our website: http://www.fablestonedice.com/bone-origins
Shipping & Schedule
Worldwide shipping is available for all of the rewards.
Shipping to the USA and EU are customs friendly with no additional customs charges. Many other worldwide destinations are also customs friendly.
The expected delivery date for all rewards is July 2018 and this allows plenty of time for samples, production and quality assurance.
Share This Project
With eight dice designs included in our base funding goal, this is one of our most ambitious projects yet.
Your help will be vital (and hugely appreciated) in spreading the word, so that the Chain Breaker dice can make it into production and reach the furthest corners of the globe.
Thank you for your support with our project.

Risks and challenges
We are going into this project working with an excellent manufacturer, who we have worked with before, and was able to fulfil our previous project and exceed our expectations.
Working with this same manufacturer we are confident that this project will run smoothly, and without the typical risks and pitfalls that can occur when manufacturing dice.
This is our third project on Kickstarter, with all of our previous projects being successfully fulfilled and with stunning results. Through these we have first-hand experience of dealing with the issues that can arise during manufacturing, and how to prevent and solve these. Without ever compromising on quality.
I love fulfilling our projects and making sure that all our backers feel like they are involved and informed with the whole fulfilment process, with clear, honest communication throughout. And receive some amazing looking rewards.
I am passionate about producing the very best quality dice for our rewards. This will be accomplished through our first-hand experience of several manufacturers. Backers of our previous projects will also know that I personally hand pick and check through every single one of the dice before including them. This ensures that only the most awesome dice make it into your rewards.
We expect this project to run smoothly and to produce some truly beautiful dice unlike any other before.
We invite you to come along on this journey, and thank you for your support with our project. :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
