About this project

Welcome to our Kickstarter!

To delve into a Heroic Fantasy atmosphere filled with monsters, magic and epic quests, nothing is better than a role-playing game board. And for a successful immersion, decorations, figurines and other accessories are almost indispensable.

And this is where our project starts with an element often pampered (and sometimes hated!) by its owner: the die.

We wish to create a set of dice that expand the possibilities of playing in a role-playing game. These dice are also intended to have a certain aesthetic appearance to incite the most fervent collectors.

The concept we propose is a new way to play with magic in role-playing games. This concept takes the form of dice. And for our first range, we propose 4 dice dedicated to elemental magic: fire, water, earth, air.

 

The game system

Being based on a 6-sided dice system, the principle is simple:

  • 1 side corresponds to the failure of a spell.

  • 2 sides, with the same spell, correspond to “classic” spells. This spell is not so powerful but the player is more likely to fall on.

  • 2 sides correspond to an effect spell related to the element of the die. These are two spells from different power levels and do more damage than the “classic” spell.

  • 1 side corresponds to the most powerful spell: this is your critical spell.

The subclass system

We created for each element a sub-class that will give each die a specific function:

  • the destruction is a subclass of fire; it’s a single-target spell with burn damage over time or even instant death.

  • the kinesic influence is a subclass of earth; it’s a single-target spell which can hinder movement and even neutralize opponents.

  • the control of position is a subclass of air; it’s a single-target spell able to repel enemies or to eject them out of a combat zone.

  • the area of devastation is a subclass of water; it’s a spell with a greater or lesser effect area. If misused, it can hurt the allies and even the spellcaster.

Thus, each die will have distinct effects giving its user a role or a special power.

Thanks to their simple illustrations, clear and understandable to all, you can use our dice in various game styles. Our dice weren’t designed for a particular game.

They are for all players who want to reinvent their playing. They can be compatible with numerous game rules and conversely, game rules can be adapted to the dice.

With an inventive game master’s, everything is possible. Using your imagination, you can integrate them to your scenarios in existing games or, for the most inventive of you, create your own game from scratch!

For example: a magician casting a spell; an object to which you want to give a magical effect; the consequences of triggering a trap...

Here are some examples:

Funding our project would help us mainly to launch our business: developing our online store and buy our first stock! 

If all goes well, then we could develop an entire range of dice on the same principle. We already have very precise ideas for new sets!

A small part of the budget will help us to bear the costs already incurred, such as: the company formation, the hosting of the website, graphics, communication, translation...

The price of our dice might seem high but we must take into account: the work of graphic designer for each die, the customization of each side by the engraver, the size of the die (19mm), the customs fees...

 

The dice are well-made and they have great details. The dice have square corners to give them a classy look. They are 19 mm (about 0,75 inch), which allows a good reading of the drawings.

They are black in order to highlight the color of each element. Each face is etched. Our prototypes were engraved by Custom Dice, Inc. (USA) which co-participates in several Kickstarter projects.

Each side of each die has a unique design made by a graphic designer who talentedly transposed Julien’s ideas and drafts.

Your contributions allow you to have one or more dice.

We deliver worldwide. We offer package tracking by adding an extra charge to your package.

Risks and challenges

We do not manufacture the dice.

Positive note: we already have the manufacturer and the prototypes :)
We work with Custom Dice, Inc. (https://www.facebook.com/customdice/)

Some traits are quite thin; the die might have some color breaches in small places.

Delivery time may be longer(!) than expected. We order the dice in the United States and we repackage them in France.
