Important Updates:

This section is for important information and changes. If you're new to the project, see "Who We Are" below for an overview of what we're all about! If you've got questions, message/comment us, but please check the FAQ at the bottom of the page first!

NEW BACKERS: Check out our Updates, particularly #9, #10 and #11 for important information on the upgraded Dice Vault design and what to expect when the campaign closes!

Holiday delivery is mostly sold out, especially for most Rare Woods, but it's still possible to order a Dice Vault in ANY wood; see below for details!

New Wait List Tier:

If you would like ONLY Rare Wood Dice Vaults which are currently sold out, the $1 Wait List tier is for you. By pledging, you pre-order Rare Wood Dice Vaults for 2014 delivery; add to the $1 pledge the cost of any Vaults you would like, indicated by their Reward Tier. Ex: For a Pink Ivory and Spalted Tamarind Dice Vault, choose this reward and pledge $1 + $80 + $40, or $121 total. 

Important: International Backers add $3 per Dice Vault beyond the first. Thank you for your cooperation!

Please consult the FAQ or message/comment us with any questions about the wait list tier or adding to your pledge.

Holiday Delivery & Rare Wood Tiers

In the interest of meeting our shipping goals, we've limited the original holiday delivery pledge tiers. We have opened NEW POST-HOLIDAY TIERS with NO LIMITS and a later delivery date should interest exceed our production capabilities. Thank you for your understanding!

Secondly, you may now purchase RARE WOOD Dice Vaults as ADD-ONS! However, these add-on Rare Wood Dice Vaults will NOT be available for holiday delivery! The add-on vaults will be delivered for February 2014! See the FAQ for details.

Who We Are

Wyrmwood Gaming is a small company run out of a single workshop in East Taunton, Massachusetts. It consists of two longtime friends, Douglas Costello & Edward Maranville. We founded the company on a simple idea--that gamers appreciate, and deserve, fine craftsmanship.

We've already created and produced two product lines: Dice Trays, for tabletop gamers of all kinds, and our Deck Boxes for collectible card game players (we've included photos in the "Product Line" section).

But Wyrmwood Gaming needs you to help us launch the Dice Vault--the first-ever premium, handmade dice case! The Dice Vault, made of high quality hardwoods, is the only product of its kind and was created to give tabletop gamers a high-end way to showcase and store their favorite set of RPG dice.

Presenting the Wyrmwood Gaming Dice Vault!

The Dice Vault is designed with players of all tabletop RPGs in mind: Dungeons & Dragons, Call of Cthulhu, Vampire: The Masquerade, Pathfinder, and many more!

The Wyrmwood Gaming Dice Vault

The case features sturdy, all-wood construction, with strong magnets installed so it will remain securely closed (as well as give an oh-so-satisfying snap when you shut it). It's painstakingly sanded and finished, and comes in two sizes to fit the needs of tabletop gamers everywhere. The Standard case holds a set an RPG set of seven polyhedral dice, the set used by D&D, Pathfinder and others, while the Expanded size will fit a set of ten 10-sided dice (d10), as required by White Wolf's World of Darkness games, like Vampire and Mage.

The Expanded size can also be used to hold a standard RPG set of 7 dice, with extra six-sided dice.

The Process

The process for creating the Dice Vault is quite involved, and could easily fill this page; if you're hungry for information, you can check out our Facebook page. We've posted a photo album called "The Process" which details the creation of this product, leading up to the Kickstarter launch! Here's just a sample of what you'll find there:

Tiers and Options

The Dice Vault is available in 12 different wood species, two of which are new to us and are currently available only through this Kickstarter campaign! We've also got more wood species available via stretch goals. We're offering the Dice Vault at a variety of price points befitting the rarity and cost of the woods involved, and have separated the species into tiers with others of similar value. Here's our offerings at launch, broken down into their respective tiers. You'll see we've chosen sets of dice that complement each wood species: to add dice to your pledge, see our Add-Ons section.

Beyond the solid woods, we offer the PARAGON Tier -- choose from five combinations of woods with a contrasting veneer attached!

 Note: Ebony/Rare Woods excluded from the Epic Tier.

Above the Paragon Tier, we have the Epic Tier and Legend Tier. These Dice Vaults include a Celtic knot pattern carved into the top of the case. At the Epic Tier, choose from any solid wood (excluding Ebony and Rare Wood tiers); at Legend, choose from any of the Paragon Tier combinations.

For the Deity Tier, we bring you Gabon Ebony! Ebony is a remarkable wood, one we always dreamed of offering. We're extremely pleased to be able to use it for the first time with the Dice Vault!

For the most elite gamers we offer the Dungeon Master Tier: a Dice Vault with handcrafted veneer inlays of multiple species of wood, painstakingly arranged in a striking Celtic pattern. A true work of art, due to the intensive nature of the handwork involved a very limited number are available.

Finally, beyond the Dungeon Master, for those that must have something completely original, completely their own, we present the Gygax Tier.

Similar in concept to the Dungeon Master Tier, the Gygax will feature hand marquetry. However, by pledging at Gygax, you are commissioning a completely custom work from Wyrmwood Gaming. We will be in direct contact with you to determine the details of your artwork and materials; fine woods such as Holly, Ebony and Rosewood are of course available, but non-ferrous metals like silver and brass are also possibilities, as are Ivory and other materials. Your pledge is best considered an estimate; costs can increase based on some chosen materials (gold, platinum, etc.).

This will absolutely not be ready for the holidays! It will take significant time to flesh out the concept to your specifications, which will begin after the Kickstarter run of product has been produced and shipped, and we can devote the required attention and time to custom work.

If you are considering pledging at this level, feel free to contact us with any questions, or a rough idea of your proposal, prior to pledging!

Rare Wood Tiers

These tiers have been unlocked by our backers through stretch goals. These are all prized exotic woods, with strictly limited holiday delivery spots. These Dice Vaults can be purchased as add-ons, but only those pledging at the Rare Wood tiers will get them for Christmas 2013! All others will ship for February 2014. Please see our FAQ for details!

A unique variant on Tamarind, its recognizable, dramatic appearance makes it highly prized! We're thrilled to be able to offer it to our backers in limited quantities!

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Ebony is known for being black, but there are many species of ebony, and Black and White Ebony is among the most striking. For a more "classical" form of Ebony, see Gabon Ebony, above in the Deity Tier!

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Lignum Vitae is one of the densest, toughest woods in existence, one of the "ironwoods." We didn't have it in mind when we conceived the Dice Vault, but If there's one wood appropriate to the name, it's Lignum Vitae.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Similar to appearance to rosewood, this tropical wood is hard and dense. It's beauty is evident, but it has a long history of use in fine inlay work, furniture, and smaller decorative applications.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

A striking, tropical variant of Walnut, also known as Tropical Walnut. Despite not coming strictly from Peru, this is the most common name.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

This striking Mahogany variant is highly sought after for it's flowing figuring patterns, the cascading appearance of which give it its name.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

This wood is renowned for its distinctive, beautiful grain patterns, known as spider-webbing or, alternatively, landscaping, so-called for the appearance of valleys and hills in the grain.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Variable in color from red to reddish-brown or purple-brown, this strong, tropical wood is known by various names. It's used in fine furniture, musical instruments, and various decorative applications.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

This rather rare wood is generally not available in large quantities. It's traditionally used for ornamental work and inlays, due to its pure, nearly white appearance.

Holiday Delivery Status: Available!

Another very unusual wood, as you can tell from its amazing hue, Pink Ivory was at one time only possessed by the Zulu royal family. A legend was spread that anyone else possessing this wood would be subject to punishment by death... but since the wood has since spread around the world, we think they were bluffing. ;)

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

An important wood in its native Brazil, Yellowheart is notable primarily for its striking yellow coloring, as one might expect after having seen the similarly named Purpleheart! Yellowheart earns its name by approaching striking shades not normally associated with natural wood - if you imagine the shade of a banana, you aren't far off!

Holiday Delivery Status: Available!

A popular wood often used to repel moths, due to its distinctive fragrance; nevertheless, a visually striking species, often with pinkish to reddish-brown hues and very straight grain. Sometimes used to make longbows.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

A very sustainable and ecologically friendly material, Bamboo composite has the added benefit of being very strong and visually remarkable. Of course, it's also achieved a degree of fame due to its long association with Asian culture.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Due to the importance of olive trees economically, Olivewood is rarely seen as lumber. A striking wood that tends to darken with age, it usually appears cream or yellowish in color, with contrasting darker streaks.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

The ancient, massive Kauri trees of New Zealand were suddenly and violently buried in swamps tens of thousands of years ago. The timber survived, and trees that have fallen are extracted for lumber through an arduous procedure; this makes the lumber expensive and rare, but to own a piece of Ancient Kauri is to hold prehistory, and as such it's highly sought after.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Black Palm trees are unusual for a variety of reasons. Unlike most trees, the core of the tree is soft, while the outer portions produce this wood. Like Bamboo, it consists of densely packed fibers, and is not technically a hardwood or softwood. It has been used for canes, knife handles, martial arts weapons, flooring and fine furniture accents.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Joining Purpleheart and Yellowheart, Redheart also takes its name from its vibrant coloring. When first cut, it will often exhibit a bright red shade, deepening to a rich brownish red with time.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

In addition to having its warm coloring, Osage Orange is a very dense, seasonally stable and hardy wood; it's prized in demanding applications where such rugged qualities are required. An excellent choice for making bows, the wood also contains a natural yellow-orange dye.

Holiday Delivery Status: Available!

The relatively wide variety of colors within Canarywood means pieces can have a rainbow-like effect, with multiple grain lines of varying shades stacked on top of one another. Said to have desirable acoustic properties, Canarywood can be found in musical instruments and speaker enclosures.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Primarily a golden brown, Marblewood derives its name from its pattern of contrasting, irregular streaks of brown, purple or black. A rather dense, durable wood, it tends to have a finer texture and more variation in its "stripes" then the more readily available Zebrawood.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

An often highly figured variant of Walnut, this rich brown wood is found primarily in California Walnut orchards. As lumber, it can be found in small quantities, used for fine furniture, musical instruments, gunstocks and small items.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

While Tiger Maple, also known as Flame Maple, features a striped figuring pattern, Quilted Maple features a breathtaking pattern of waves or ripples. Quilted Maple can be very highly sought after; heavily quilted Maple can be seen on the surface of many fine instruments, especially electric guitars.

Holiday Delivery Status: Available!

Featuring striking, high contrast bands of color, this Mexican wood is never less than eye-catching. Not limited to stripes, its grain can feature swirls, sometimes called "eyes," which make an already beautiful wood even more unique. Bocote is a favorite for its aesthetic properties.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Sometimes called Vermillion, Padauk begins as shades of pinkish orange which deepen over time to a vivid reddish brown. Popular due to its coloring and toughness, Padauk is often imported and remains more available than many other exotic woods. It can be found in chess sets and many other decorative applications.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Typically reddish-brown in color and oftentimes featuring figuring, Koa is naturally abundant in Hawaii, where it's regarded as the most beautiful of Hawaii's hardwoods. Many Koa forests have been cleared, so lumber is somewhat rare, but it can nonetheless be found in many specialty items like fine guitars. Koa is usually the wood of choice for ukuleles due its acoustic properties and its place of origin.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

Though it cannot match the pure black of Gabon Ebony, African Blackwood was imported and used in Ancient Egypt thousands of years ago, and is sometimes called the original ebony. The hard, dense lumber is rare and highly sought after as trees grow slowly, and tend to be small. It's used in fine furniture, and musical instruments ranging from guitars and banjos to clarinets, oboes and other woodwinds.

Holiday Delivery Status: SOLD OUT!

We'll be continuing to add stretch goals throughout the campaign - your enthusiasm has been amazing, and we can't wait to expand the scope and options of the project! Thank you so much for being a part of it!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

This is a very low risk project. The funds will allow us to buy raw materials, but since we control 100% of the manufacturing process and own our shop, once the materials are sourced there is virtually no risk. We are confident we can meet our shipping deadlines, and we have measures in place so that we can do so even in the event of overwhelming demand or extenuating circumstances.

We plan to be very transparent and communicate throughout the campaign and afterwards and will keep our backers apprised of how the production is coming along.

Wyrmwood Gaming is a customer service focused company, and we take our commitment to you, the backer, very seriously. Thanks for your trust and support!

FAQ

  • No, our dice vaults do not come with dice. However, we do offer dice as add-on options. We've specifically chosen dice to complement each wood species, as shown in the tier photos. If, however, you'd like a different combination, you're free to specify that!

    Last updated:
  • Not at this time. Initially, we had planned to offer those options, but we decided against it for a couple reasons. First, this project is about getting the Dice Vault made. We've already got the Dice Tray and Deck Box lines up and running. Secondly, we don't want our backers overwhelmed in choices, and we don't want to be drowning in heavily customized orders when fulfillment time comes around. Since every order is customized, it'll just be too much to keep track of. Also, shipping costs can get out of control very fast. However, it isn't all bad news! ALL of our existing products are available to order right now at wyrmwoodgaming.com and our Etsy shop, wyrmwoodgaming.etsy.com, so if you'd like a matching Dice Tray to go with your new Dice Vault, you know how to get one!

    Last updated:
  • Most of the work on this project has been completed; we've done a run of prototypes, and ironed out the bugs in design. We have procedures in place capable of scaling to meet larger runs and can make just about any quantity we're likely to need. All we're missing is the funding and demand for materials, so if you've got the demand and the funds, we'll do the rest!

    You'll note that we've added limits to the original tiers; these are there purely to cap holiday delivery. We've also added "post holiday" delivery tiers with an estimated delivery of February 2014. We apologize for those coming in a little later that would like early delivery, but we don't want to promise something we can't deliver, so the limits were necessary.

    That said, we will get everyone their products as soon as possible!

    Last updated:
  • Currently, the Dice Vault is made specifically for 16mm (standard size) dice. However, given we've been asked about it a couple times, we're exploring options, including potentially running another campaign down the road for a "jumbo" version. We'll keep you posted!

    Last updated:
  • Certainly! If you check out our Add-On section, you'll see we're allowing you to purchase multiple Vaults by simply increasing your pledge by the appropriate amount (for example, if you wanted one each of White Oak and Zebrawood, you would pledge at the Adventurer Tier, but change your pledge amount to $50 total). We'll confirm the details of your order after the project ends with our survey. Some Dice Vaults (Epic, Legend & Dungeon Master) are limited to one per customer, however.

    If you wanted three Dice Vaults - one each in Purpleheart, Lignum Vitae and Gabon Ebony - you would choose one of the available rewards - Deity, Adventurer or Lignum Vitae - and then change your total pledge to cover the price of all three: $30 + $70 + $100, or $200 total. Factor in shipping if you're an international backer (in this case, an additional $10 + $3 + $3 for $16 total) and you're done!

    NOTE: When adding on Rare Wood Dice Vaults to a pledge, please be aware that they will ship separately for February 2014; holiday shipping for Rare Wood Dice Vaults is strictly limited to the tiers with the December 2013 delivery estimate. Thanks for your understanding!

    Last updated:
  • If you'd like to use the Dice Vault for something other than sets of dice, we can't guarantee a fit, though many pens will fit comfortably in the Expanded case. You can verify what size you'll need by simply checking the dimensions below.

    The dimensions of the Dice Vault are as follows:

    Exterior: 1-1/4" high x 1.5" wide x 6.5" long (Expanded is 8" long)

    Interior: 13/16" high x 7/8" wide x 5-1/8" long (Expanded is 6-11/16" long)

    Last updated:
  • No, you are not. We are committed to getting every backer what they want - though not necessarily in the holiday timeframe. The limits on tiers for rare woods are based on what we have sourced and can source in time for our tight deadlines. We can get more of these, but not for the holidays.

    You are free to purchase rare wood Dice Vaults as add-ons to any other pledge, with the understanding that they will not ship in time for the holidays this year, instead being delivered for February 2014.

    Last updated:
  • If you ONLY want a single rare wood vault, back at the $1 WAIT LIST Pledge Level, and add the value of your chosen rare wood to your pledge. We will confirm what you would like via the survey, and your reward will be delivered for February 2014.

    For example, if you would like a Pink Ivory Dice Vault as well as a Spalted Tamarind Dice Vault, choose the WAIT LIST reward and pledge $1 + $80 + $40, or $121 total. International backers, PLEASE remember to add $3 per Dice Vault beyond the first! Thank you!

    (Sorry about the $1 charge, but it's the best solution we could come up with, short of adding 20 new tiers to our already cluttered page. To make up for the overage, and your patience, we'll include a random Wyrmwood Gaming logo die with these WAIT LIST pledges).

    Last updated:
  • In cases where the gift wrapping add-on is purchased for multiple Dice Vault orders, we will indicate which is which using a small removable label affixed to the wrapped Vaults. You can remove these prior to passing them to the ultimate recipient, so it remains a secret to them, but not to you!

  • When it comes to our wood sourcing we are aware of the environmental consequences in choosing to allow people to purchase exotic woods. We certainly put an effort into sourcing the majority of our woods from responsible companies and dealers who make environmental protection a top priority.

    That being said, exotic woods are like diamonds or any other expensive commodity that comes from regions where there is a history of environmental and human rights issues. In such situations, the possibility of illegally obtained or irresponsibly harvested wood being mislabeled always exists, regardless of certification programs with nebulous processes and standards - as well-intended as they may be. Therefore, if you are uncomfortable with that reality, we recommend you abstain from purchasing a product made with exotic materials, and instead look to our many domestic wood options, such as the entries at the APPRENTICE and JOURNEYMAN tiers. This lumber comes from trees that are local to North America and managed with sustainable practices; any of these Dice Vaults can be purchased with 100% confidence that those trees have been harvested responsibly and are not at any risk of becoming endangered. Bamboo is also a great, very ecologically friendly choice.

    Again, to emphasize: we would never knowingly purchase illegally or irresponsibly harvested timber for our products, and none of our suppliers would, either. However, there are many links in the supply chain above us, and we aren't comfortable offering a guarantee without complete information, which we cannot obtain for the aforementioned reasons.

    We offer a large assortment of woods for people of all backgrounds and tastes, and leave the ultimate decision on exotic materials to the discretion of our customers. We pledge to be transparent with our wood sourcing, and appreciate and share your concerns in this very important area.

    Last updated:
  • We've gotten some questions concerning CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora), and we wanted to address them here, but first a brief note: while we have shipped internationally before without experiencing any issues, if you have any concerns about importing finished wood products, you should contact your postal service or customs office to inquire about your country's regulations and guidelines. We don't have reason to believe you need worry, but we recommend being aware of your country's policies before attempting to purchase any product internationally.

    As far as CITES: CITES is a piece of international legislation aimed at curbing the trade of many threatened and endangered species, both plant and animal. Some are so heavily restricted that to bring an item containing the material across the border is flatly illegal, while others are restricted only in cases of bulk quantities.

    CITES can be very confusing and difficult to navigate, but there are a few important points to note:

    1) CITES is a huge database, covering thousands of species; of these, only some are trees, and only some of those are actually used for lumber.

    2) Of all the wood species we offer, only two are present in the database. In both cases, the regulations do not apply to finished products such as the Dice Vault.

    Now, you can rest easy with that, but if you'd like further information beyond the short answer, read on...

    The two species found in the database are Cocobolo and Lignum Vitae. Both are listed in Appendix II, which is the second tier - Appendix I are the most restricted materials. For example, Brazilian Rosewood is an Appendix I material, which is subject to seizure in many cases. Appendix II is still restricted, but there are many nuances specific to each species.

    Cocobolo is listed as regulated only in cases of raw timber - finished products, like the Dice Vault, are exempt. Lignum Vitae is a little more complicated. With lumber, oftentimes a trade name can encompass several scientific species, due to many woods being closely related, or just looking alike. For example, there are many varieties of Rosewood - the heavily restricted Brazilian is only one of many. Bubinga is sometimes called African Rosewood. So, while if you search the CITES database, you will find Lignum Vitae products restricted, that is NOT the material we use.

    Ours is related, but a different species, sometimes called Argentine Lignum Vitae, or Verawood; while it is present on the CITES database Appendix II, it's in the same category as Cocobolo - restricted only in raw lumber form. Finished products like the Dice Vault are again exempt.

    We have found no other species we are using in the database besides these two, and hope you can rest easy knowing that we are observing regulations in our lumber sourcing and use - not just for legal reasons, but for ethical reasons, as well.

    For more information, see this guide: http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/restricted-and-endangered-wood-species/

  • There may be. This will vary place to place, and you will need to contact your local post office or customs authority to inquire about your specific case. Please understand that we can only do so much research, and cannot know every nation's policies; finding what fees you may be responsible for must, therefore, be your responsibility.

    Many countries have thresholds under which VAT is not applied. If you cannot determine whether or not this is likely to affect you, let us know via messaging and we'll do what we can.

    We will label items accurately, and not undervalue or misrepresent the contents. We realize this will result in fees in some cases, and this isn't something we're happy about, but we cannot and will not fraudulently fill out customs forms to avoid this outcome. We appreciate your understanding in this matter and apologize for any inconvenience.

Your Vault will feature a hand-inlayed marquetry top--a hand cut painting in wood. Walnut, dyed Maple, Mahogany, and other exotic woods are painstakingly pieced together in a woven pattern and applied to the exterior of the dice case. Extremely limited due to the demanding nature of the work! This marquetry is not laser cut, or premade, or assembled by machine. This is an Old World craft brought into the modern day for the most dedicated table top gamer.

    THE GYGAX: We will contact you to create a custom Dice Vault, Standard or Extended, in any wood that we have offered in this campaign. We will work with you to design a custom inlay that will include hand-crafted marquetry with rare, exotic woods and non-ferrous metals (brass, sliver, etc). Extremely rare/expensive metals are allowed, but these will raise the overall price upon completion. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE HOLIDAY DELIVERY.
