Bonus Tracking Dice for RPG's
RPGers: Never forget temporary bonuses again! Track six of them right in front of you on large specially printed dice. Woo Hoo!!
I've been playing RPG's way longer than I care to remember. I've always wanted an easy, visible way to track temporary bonuses. You know, those temporary bonuses to things like your attack roll or saving roll by a spell or something like that. I always seem to forget to add that +1 because I've been "blessed."
Now with your help, we all can keep up. The idea I need help with is BONUS DICE! They aren't for random bonus generation (but you could use them that way). Place them in front of you when you have a temporary modification to one of your stats. It will make it easy to remember! The set consists of SIX large (3/4") dice. One for Attack Bonus, One for Defense Bonus, One for Damage Bonus, One for Fortitude Saves, One for Reflex Saves, and One for Will Saves. Each die has a face for +3 , +2, +1, 0 bonus, -1, & -2. We plan to offer the sets in a number of colors, but not sure how many yet. (maybe 5: Red, White, Blue, Green, Yellow) We will also have BLACK dice ONLY for Kickstarter team members!!! We will never produce black dice for sale to the general public.
The dice in the pictures are a prototype set I have. The art is engraved on multicolored dice. Our new dice will be solid colors with printed art. This will be much clearer, more colorful, and easier to read. We are working on the artwork for the 6 dice. At higher levels we will provide a bag that will fit these six dice and some extras. We have also designed a rack that will hold all 6 dice in front of you. We will 3D Print the rack just for you (Unless you want a LOT of then, then we will look at another method). At the highest level we will even have your or your character's name designed into the front of the rack.
You can never have enough dice!!!!!
Risks and challenges
There are risks in any project. The risks in this one are pretty small. We have to have blank dice molded. I'm an engineer and have worked with tool & die makers as well as molders before. Dice are not a complex mold. There are also vendors that sell blank dice. Just a matter of finding the best suited for our dice. The art for the 36 sides of the dice must be designed and created. Again this isn't hard, just time consuming. It has to look good and be clearly understood. We will keep you up to speed with regular postings. We have given everyone a lot of options on the pledges, we will do our best to keep them straight and get them to you quickly!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
