Update #58

Dice!

Hey Numenera Backers.

This is just a quick update (expect another, newsier one next week) to show off the dice that Q-Workshop is making for us. I think they're GORGEOUS.

You'll see the Numenera symbol as the highest number on each die, plus the 20-sider has special marks on the 17,18, and 19 because those are "special effect" results.

They were an add-on in the Kickstarter. They will be available for general sale this summer, however. Details to come.

      Dammit I am having so much dice-lust right now. I should have ordered these, but I am leery of ordering sight-unseen dice. Those are frikkin' sweet! Guess I will just have to pay full price for them when they come out..

      Yep, the Blue and Maize :)
      I like the dice (though secretly I was hoping Monte could get Q-workshop to make somePearlescent Dice with the special numbers being Hologrammed ).
