About

The Prototype (in yellow instead of gold)
The Prototype (in yellow instead of gold)

This is a project to produce high-quality, 10-sided dice for tabletop role-playing. The basic funding will enable a single design to be produced. Stretch goals will make additional designs available. Finally, I am pursuing Official Licensing. If successful, the dice will be subtly or greatly redesigned to conform to the licensing agreement and better reflect the game they are intended to support.

The dice will be manufactured by Q-Workshop ( http://catalogue.q-workshop.com/  ), allowing amazing levels of detail. 

Stretch goals will add new dice to the lineup with different cultural influences (see FAQ).

Risks and challenges

The greatest risk here is lack of funding. If we don't reach the basic funding level, the project is over.

Everything else is solid:
I have a background in shipping, receiving, warehousing and manufacturing. The price quotes are reasonable and the basic funding level is sufficient to deal with a mishap or two. Shipping and handling is included in the rewards.
The dice designs are getting so good that I am likely to rework the first die to give each face a unique look.
Q-Workshop is also the premier high-detail dice manufacturer. I don't doubt their quality.
