As we all know, all D20s have a certain number of natural 20s stored in them. Once this supply is depleted, only rolling critical misses will restore them. So, how do you protect your supplies of 20s from being stolen by so called 'friends'? The Cryptex Dice Vault is your solution. With this attractive cylinder, your dice will be safe and secure!
A cryptex is a form of combination lock and safe all in one. Only when all of the reels are aligned to the correct positions can the the two cylinders be separated, giving access to the contents hidden within.
This Cryptex is perfectly sized to hold a standard 7 set of polyhedral for D&D or other similar game systems. Made of real hardwood, inlayed with contrasting colors and stamped with numbers. Featuring 5 reels of numbers, the CDV has 100,000 possible combinations.
For those of you who enjoy games from the World of Darkness or other D10 based systems, we have the Dark World CDV, a longer version that can handle a full set of ten D10s.
The Pride features 7 reels just like the Dark World, but instead of numbers, it features the seven colors of the rainbow. Due to the need to be painted, the Pride is not available in hardwood.
The Pride will keep your secrets...at least some of them.
And finally there's the largest of the vaults, the Da Vinci. Unlike the others, which feature just the numbers 0-9, the Da Vinci features larger reels with the full A-Z alphabet. The Da Vinci has a similar length as the basic CDV, but a larger internal cross section.
Each of the vaults is available alone, or with a custom fitted box of matching wood.
Each of the dice vaults is available in your choice of three different woods, elm, walnut, and purpleheart.

So, why Kickstarter? I have developed a good method for producing these vaults, but there are some errors due to my available tools. Upon completion of this kickstarter, I will be able to purchase several tools that will greatly aid in production, in particular a thickness planer.
Note: The images displayed here are prototypes and may change slightly in the final design.
Due to repeated requests, I have added options for those outside the US who might be interested. The increased prices are due to the high cost of international shipping costs. Please note that the buyer is responsible for any customs fees that may occur, so please take this into account before pledging.
Shipping to the USA
If you are located in the USA and want to pledge, do not select any option marked "INTERNATIONAL". These reward levels have international shipping costs built in, and cannot be refunded. If you make a mistake, you can change your pledge level before the Kickstart ends.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can the combination be changed?
The combination cannot be changed after manufacturing. I plan to create a survey upon completion of the Kickstarter that will allow pledgers to specify the combination of their choice, but that combination can't be changed after that point.
Will you ship internationally?
Yes, due to popular demand, I have added an international option. The higher cost of international shipping is included in the pledge level. However, any customs fees are the responsibility of the receiver.
What if I want more than one?
Increase your pledge by the appropriate amount and indicate what the additional portion is for. I also hope to allow for the purchase of additional units once the kickstarter has ended.
Risks and challenges
Possible risks are mainly related to tool breakages. I don't expect anything to happen, but the possibility always exists. Production delays could occur if there is unexpected volume of orders, but I would still expect to have things complete this summer.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
