About this project
Yeah, we thought about making dice candles a while back, but we wanted to do something more than just a really cool shaped block of wax...
...unfortunately for our test subject, it turns out that regular dice will in fact catch on fire and die if you put them inside a candle.
(R.I.P. Ugly D12 that always rolled low, you'll sort of be missed).
So we teamed up with our friends at DieHardDice.com to solve that whole silly combustibility issue!
So now, each D20 candle comes with an entire 7-piece set of metal gaming dice! (D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20, and D%)
Choose your weapons!
With over a dozen sets to choose from, there's something for everyone's tastes (or at least hopefully one they don't have already!)
Assemble your party!
For those of you familiar with our Soap-on-a-Rope D20, we're bringing back the same character themes and scents for our new line of candles!
"The Ranger" with 'Heart of the Forest' scent.
Green with black numbers and a Pine based scent.
"The Fighter" with 'Blood of my Enemies' scent.
Red with black numbers and a Dragonsblood based scent.
"The Wizard" with 'Arcane Reagent' scent.
Blue with white numbers and a Sandalwood based scent.
"The Bard" with 'Verses of Victory' scent.
Purple with white numbers and a Lavender based scent.
"The Rogue" with 'Hidden Dagger' scent.
Black with white numbers and an Egyptian Amber based scent.
"The Cleric" with 'Healing Touch' scent. (Stretch Goal Added)
White with pink numbers and a Vanilla and Floral based scent.
Mystery Theme to be determined by vote. (Stretch Goal Added)
Tweet suggestions to @LunarWolfTreats and we'll have a vote among all our backers!
All D20s are also available unscented on request, and any dice set can be included in any of the themes!
The candles burn for up to 2 hours, and of course we highly recommend placing the candle on a surface to catch the wax, such as a glass bowl or saucer. The dice inside are wrapped in a bundle of foil for some extra protection, and of course we very highly recommend waiting a bit before grabbing at the ball of metal that was just surrounded by fire for 2 hours. If you need an explanation as to why that is a good idea, we can direct you to many websites filled with images of what a burned finger looks like (or you can take our word for it).
Solo Run- Any one of our Candle Themes with any Dice Set
It's always better to play with friends, but that doesn't mean you have to buy their dice for them! Get a set for yourself and watch them drool with jealousy as your dice come out of the candle to play!
Duo Dungeon- Any 2 of our Candle Themes with any Dice Sets
Fine, so you have to share the loot, but at least there's twice as good a chance of finding some! Plus, who knows what sort of reward your partner will share for the help! (Or for that matter, what your partner might share when you present them with their own candle dice!)
Triple Threat- Any 3 of our Candle Themes with any Dice Sets
We're not pointing fingers, but watch out for the rogue. Mix and match or get three of a kind for you and your crew.
The Full Party- Any combination of 5 Themes and Dice Sets
Now you're definitely ready for that boss battle! Equip your entire gaming party, including the DM, because anything that makes him happy, makes you less at risk!
FLGS Special- 15 Total Dice, 3 of each Theme, Random Dice Sets
This deal is specially for Friendly Local Game Shop owners who want to add our candles to their inventory! Also, if we reach our expansion goals to add more themes, we'll mix things up a bit with this set to ensure as much variety as possible. All Candle Dice will be packaged for retail displays!
$2,500 - "The Cleric" Theme Added - *FUNDED*
We've picked the scent ("Healing Touch") and we plan to do a white D20 with pink numbers, plus our artist is standing by to sketch the cleric so she can join the adventure!
$5,000 - Rainbow Dice Set Added - *FUNDED*
Our supplier has the Sinister Chrome dice sets with numbers in seven different colors: Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple. It's inevitable that someone would think to do a set with one of each!
$7,500 - Gift Packaging for Everyone! - *FUNDED*
Aside from our FLGS backers,we know a lot of you will be giving these as gifts, either to a loved one or to yourself, and who doesn't love to rip wrapping paper off a gift? It's the least we can do to add one more layer of joy to the whole process!
$10,000 - New Theme voted by Backers! - *FUNDED*
You got us here, so now you decide what to do about it! We need a seventh party member, a color theme for their dice, and some guidelines for mixing their own custom scent! We'll have our backers tweet or message us their best ideas, put together a list of the favorites, and put it to the vote!
$15,000 - Tealight Sets for every backer level!
This is absolutely insane, and we had to think for a bit on exactly what to do for this stretch goal. Since a lot of people said they were going to have trouble picking which theme, we figure the best reward we can do is to include a tealight candle set with every shipment. The candle set will include 7 tealight candles, to sample each of our themes.
Thank you all for making this a reality for us in advance!
Risks and challenges
Our biggest risk and challenge, with any of our kickstarters, is the often overwhelming pressure that a highly successful campaign can bring. While we certainly hope to have hundreds of backers or more, we know that is a LOT of candles to make!
To keep from getting behind schedule, we are setting up our reward tiers in batches. The first backers will be first in line for earlier fulfillment, while later backers may be waiting longer, but not past their deadlines! Pay close attention to the fulfillment dates and let us know if there's a special event you have in mind.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
