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?"

Welcome to our kickstarter for Viking Dice II. Carefully designed by our partners Dice Dudes, this set of dice will fit seamlessly into any Norse or Viking themed RPG setting!

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 the special Valhalla dice set, which is especially designed for players of wargames!

Since our first dice project we have learned an incredible amount about dice design, and we have put all this knowledge into our new campaign!   

Firstly, we have a new dice manufacturer. We have spent several months honing our designs and have ironed out a lot of the manufacturing issues we encountered in the first project. Secondly, we have already taken the step of having all the dice moulds made and thoroughly tested. 

We have had a test run of dice made, allowing us to check the sizing and quality, and enabling us to show you exactly what the dice will be like when you receive them! No 3D graphics on this page!

Important! The RRP of the dice is £14.

With us taking these steps, we are confident in our delivery time schedule and quality control - these dice look awesome and roll beautifully! 

Stretch Goals?
No. This project has no stretch goals. This is something that we believe creates too many unknowns and by not having stretch goals allows us to control things easier. 

Other Colours?
No. Again, to keep things manageable the dice are being manufactured in our icy blue. No other colours are on offer this time.

Add-Ons?
Yes. Add-Ons will be possible, but not through the Kickstarter page. When you are invited to the pledge manager you will be able to add-on extra sets and singles including d6s and d20s, dice trays, and cloth bags.

Dice Dudes is the brainchild of Robin Elliott & Paul 'Wiggy' Wade-Williams. It is the dice trading arm of Triple Ace Games and we will be bringing more amazing themed dice for RPG's over the coming months. 

Triple Ace Games began in 2008. The masterminds behind the company, Paul "Wiggy" Wade-Williams and Robin Elliott, had previously worked on The Savage World of Solomon Kane and Slipstream settings, among others, for Pinnacle Entertainment Group. Triple Ace Games has produced many popular settings, including Hellfrost, Leagues of Adventure, and All for One: Regime Diabolique, plus the Rocket Race card game. With many years of experience in the games industry, we continue to create fantastic games for everyone. 

Risks and challenges

Having been through the process of making polyhedral dice in our first project our experience in this field has grown. All of the experience gained has been injected into this project and we are confident in delivering a stellar product.

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.
