Svein laughed as he reached into his sealskin pouch and pulled out a pair of yellow-white cubes. "The roll of a pair of dice to determine the winner? It hardly seems fair, given that I carved these from the bones of a polar bear I slew with my own hand."
Svein's chuckle died in his throat as his rival revealed his own dice. Unlike Svein's they were dual colored - black the depth of Hela's heart and blue of the type seen only in the deepest glaciers of her frozen kingdom. "Odin's beard...," Svein gasped.
"Aye, look and despair, Svein Snaketongue, for these are carved by Hela herself from the bones of Tyr, the god who lost his hand to tame the Fenris wolf. Care to reconsider the terms of the wager?"
Whether you're a gamer or a collector, you can never have enough dice!
Our aim is to create a set of Viking-themed polyhedral dice. This set of dice will fit seamlessly into any Norse or Viking themed RPG setting! All we need to make them a reality is your help!
The Viking-themed set contains a d4, a d6, a d8, a d10 (00-90) a d10 (0-9), a d12, and a d20. We are also offering a green d6 Wild Die with a unique symbol on the "6" face for Savage Worlds and a green d20 for use as an advantage dice with the D&D 5th Edition ruleset. If you need these dice for your game, they can be added to your pledge level.
We have been working carefully with our manufacturer to design a set of dice that will be custom manufactured and cast in high quality resin to our specifications.The designs will be pre-painted with deep engraved surfaces.

We've cleared the basic funding goal with ease! We're now planning on offering the following stretch goal rewards for hitting funding milestones!
If you've backed at any named pledge level then you'll automatically get ONE of each dice for free as they are unlocked. If you want more, we'll be making them available as add-ons once they are unlocked.
Please check out our recommended pledge levels below.
If you want specific dice rather than a set, then we have a PICK & MIX pledge level. Although the pledge level costs £1 (app $1.35), you must increase your pledge level to cover all of the individual dice you choose.
We will handle all orders via our pledge manager after the kickstarter campaign ends. This will include individual color choices, shipping costs and additional add-on dice.
If the basic dice sets are not configured to your liking you can mix and match your dice or simply add additional dice to your pledge.
We are using BackerKit pledge manager for this project. Shipping charges will be calculated and added during the pledge manager portion of this campaign. You'll also select your dice colors through the pledge manager.
All shipments will be sent from the UK. International packages will be sent by airmail to reduce shipping times.
The approximate shipping charges which will be added in the pledge manager after the kickstarter campaigns ends are:
- UK £2 (£3 for the Jarl level)
- European Union £3 (£4 for the jarl level)
- Rest of the World £5 (£6 for Jarl level).
Most dice packages will fall under the customs value threshold in most countries however your package may accrue customs charges.
Risks and challenges
We have a great deal of experience in the field of games publishing and manufacturing, and we think we can deliver this project without problems.
However, things can go wrong with anything that goes into a manufacturing process. So we have allowed additional time in our schedule to enable us to navigate any delay issues. If all goes to plan, we may even be able to deliver the project a little sooner.
We understand the manufacturing process and we know how to communicate our ideas to the manufacturer.
With projects like this there is nearly always something that costs more so it is good business sense to have some contingency for this, which we have built in to our costs.
No matter what problems may occur we will always keep our backers and supporters informed of all issues so that you are aware of the situation and how we are dealing with it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
