A Roll of the Dice

Posted by Serious Poulp (Creator)
83 likes

A new add-on, something a lot of people have been asking for: Special 7th Continent dice!

This add-on includes 8 plastic dice made to look like they’ve been carved out of chunks of bone! These are about 12mm tall and can replace the standard black ones contained within the box. They also come with a special dice bag.

Also, for our American backers, you can now download the cartographer’s notebook page in Letter format!

      Bonjour, petite question: les dés, ainsi que les autres adds, seront-il disponible en boutique une fois le jeu édité? merci d'avance!

      This is the best looking dice set I have ever seen. I'm getting them just for the appeal of it, I don't care so much for the balanced roll consistency. I'm in.

      ->Do these have any specific use in the game

      They are used to track item durability. There are some basic dice included in the box but these can replace those.

      ->The bag is nice. Do you intend to have it available on its own, or does it only come with the dice?

      It will only be available with the dice.

      ->Interesting dice. Are they balanced to roll fairly if I wanted to use them in other games?

      They will be high quality but I don’t know about their balance. I’m going to wager they won’t be the best for rolling.

      ->@Jamie will these new dice have the weight and feel of high quality dice?

      Yes.

      ->@serious pulp Are the "carved looking dice" hollow? Or will they only be printed art to look as if.

      I don’t know if they’ll be hollow but the pips will be carved not printed.

      Just to follow up on @Ophryon below "Interesting dice. Are they balanced to roll fairly if I wanted to use them in other games?"....

      Will they also have some weight so as to be suitable for rolling, or does the fact that they are made of plastic mean they are only intended to be used to mark uses remaining?

      (I suspect they are intended only as markers and not for rolling and therefore won't have much weight, nor be balanced.)

      @ Soumati & Xiao

      Click on the "Pledge Manager" button. It is at the top right hand side of the page where you originally pushed the "Back Project" button. You then can change the price that you plan to pledge for those add-ons. When you are finished adding your amount, click the "Finish/Done" button (I forget the name of it). Then you will have confirmed your pledge.

      @ Serious Poulp

      I also have the same question as others. Are these dice for looks or will they be balanced for dice rolling?

      how to add those add-on?????? no button?

      How well will the "carved out" pips be produced?
      I hope the dice won't look like a cheap knock-off of what you hope to create.
      If you can reassure us that they will look great I would consider getting two sets.
      I am sure they could come in handy with other games too.

    12. Ben Moss on

      Interesting, I wonder how many times I could use them in other games to roll 6's before people started getting suspicious...

      They do look awesome though!

      I love those dice... and the price is nice. Just one question, are they balanced?

    14. Thomas Vilfroy on

      But do concur if we can get a black and white version of the graph paper that will cut down on using color ink!

    15. Thomas Vilfroy on

      @Jamie - FYI, the previous graph paper that was on A4 does print correctly on US 8x11 inch paper. At least on a HP printer. Just thought I pass that along for future reference.

    16. F74N on

      Love them ,cool add-on

    17. Steve on

      @Jamie will these new dice have the weight and feel of high quality dice?

    18. Farfadet on

      Now there are many add-on, I'm wondering what others backers are going to add ?
      On my side, I'm going to take : EXPLORER box (89€) + FTD expansion (17€)
      I don't know if I should add to POR mini-expansion (7€) because it's a bit expensive...
      What du you think about it ?

    19. Cysterion on

      Nice add-on !

      For those who would like to use them with other games... you should avoid.
      With these big holes on the sides of the dice, it will unbalance their weight making them "tricked" dice even if it wasn't on purpose.

      This kind of design is only possible because we don't have to roll them :)

      I agree with Doctor Nny, it would be awesome if you could provide a black and white, no background version of the cartographer's notebook so it's less costly to print.

    22. Aiman on

      @valpartajeux, Jamie has already confirmed that there will be no special box, wooden or not. :/

    23. valpartajeux on

      Beautiful dices, i love it. After is the wood box ?

      Très beaux dés, J'adore ça. Après c'est la boite en bois ?

    24. Doctor Nny on

      @Omar, no the picture on the bag/box is the Statue from one of the Curses.

    25. Doctor Nny on

      @Jamie - Really need to have Printable Cartographer page without a background! As is, itd probably cost more to print this a dozen (ink!) or so times than it would to just buy the addon.

      Is the motif on the dice bag a Gug from Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos?

    27. Ludovit Fekete on

      Ooo, new addon. It is great! Thanks

    28. Manuel Berger on

      Ot is starting to feel like there are too many addons right now... I'll have to pass the dice...
      Would have loved them them as big stretch goals though....

    29. Razoupaf on

      Neat idea, but i'll pass. Not too found of the dice. The bag is nice. Do you intend to have it available on its own, or does it only come with the dice?

    30. Firebird on

      We'll use dice to count the number of authorized use of each object.
      Normal dice are included in the box. But you may prefer these ones !

    31. Maarten on

      And I can use these dice in other games that uses normal D6.

      Any feed back on an exclusive box? My thoughts are a box that looks like a wooden shipping crate, perfect for washing ashore...

    33. Maarten on

      1 hole is a 1, 2 holes is a 2 and so on. I think. So, only thematic. But nicely thematic.

      Same question here... what are these beautiful dice for ? If they have any meaningful use in the game, I am IN. I hope for some dangerous and thrilling dice rolling in the game...

    35. Jordan G on

      @Brady Dice are used to track how many uses your equipment has remaining.

      Nice add-on! Thankfully, one I can skip. :-D

    37. Brady Sadler

      on

      Do these have any specific use in the game (didn't see mention of dice previously)? Or are they just a thematic add on for people wanting custom dice?
