This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, September 20 2019 10:59 PM UTC +00:00.
Set now includes a D10 (percentile) included in every RPG Chaos set!
The Path of Chaos Metal PRG Dice Set is inspired by all things chaos. Each die has been designed with a unique, pandemonium, chaotic presence ranging from barbaric weaponry, such as the caltrops, maces, and flails, to demonic puzzle boxes. The star is my variation of the chaos star found in the public domain (here). The points have been extended and three rings have been added with enchanted runes engraved on the outer circle, while the inner sphere has been removed completely giving the artwork a unique feel.
When designing this set, I wanted something that was unique in terms of design but also offered a meaning and this set delivers just that! The ring stationed behind the number represents one’s self (mind, body, and spirit). The second inner circle represents the current plane where you reside while the far outer circle represents the outer plane. For me, the points represent choice and how different paths lead to different consequences. Originally, I was going with a compass rose design; however, with the pop culture surrounding the chaos star, I opted to base the symbol around that. Two of the dice in this set also have little hidden Easter eggs: the outskirts of the D6 make up the letters 666 while the D20 has an extended arrow pointing in different directions to represent true chaos itself.
The dice are produced in solid zinc alloy and weigh in at an impressive 33-45 grams per die giving them a beautiful smooth roll. Not only is this set heavier than your standard dice sets, the dice themselves are larger. In the end, we really wanted to produce something that would dominate the table (for sizing see the table below).
The characteristics of the Chaos set:
- 7 x RPG dice: 1xD4, 1xD6, 1xD8, 1xD10, 1xD10 (percentile)1xD12, 1xD20
- Produced in solid zinc alloy
- 3D design
- Engraved with chaotic runes
- High-quality and detailed
- Unique shape and format
Blue Wizard Gaming prides themselves on the production of high-quality unique metal dice. By backing this project not only will you make this set a reality you will also help us build some truly amazing dice in the future! You may have seen a few on our Instagram already, if not feel free to check them out!

The D6 Physical Prototype
The reason for this Kickstarter is to fund the manufacturing of the Chaos Metal Dice Set. At present I've only had one D6 die produced. I've attached a few images below so you can see and compare the colours vs the rendered visualizations. This should hopefully give you a better view of the overall finish of the complete set. You will notice on the renders that the spikes are protruding, whilst the physical dice posted below have the spikes more embedded to prevent harm to yourself, you should expect the protruding effect to be placed on all the other dice in the final production.
The Blue Wizard Chaos Dice set is larger and heavier for total table domination! As this dice set is heavy and made in solid metal a dice tray is advised, you can find these in the addon section below. In terms of the dice sizes please check out the size chart below:
*Please note some of these sizes may change slightly during the manufacturing process.
The Dragon Pin is an exclusive limited edition 44.45 x 42.9 mm hard zinc alloy double clasp pin! You can add the pin onto any pledge for £10.00!

The dice trays can be picked as an add-on and you will be able to choose from a selection of colors once the Kickstarter ends. In order to get a dice tray please add £8.99 onto the pledge. For example: 1 x D20 = £10. If you want the dice tray, then you would add £8.99 on top so the total pledge would be £18.99. If you're only after one dice set and 1 tray you can find that under the £50 pledge.
If funding is successful, we will produce the skull dice mat. This reward will ship in November and delivery will be around December. The dice mat has postage rates already factored into the pledge reward goal.

This artwork will be owned by you it will not be sold after the Kickstarter. You will also receive the digital files and five physical dice mats.
You can now add multiple Extra Dice onto existing rewards if you want to pick up an extra D4,D6,D8,D10, D12 or D20 then please add £10 per Die on top of your existing pledge amount.
As each stretch goal is met, new sets and perks will be unlocked. Depending on how the Kickstarter turns out I will be adding more perks and rewards so make sure you follow the campaign! ive included a little information below this image outlining the rewards.
Free 1xD100 (D10 percentile)
The $50,000 stretch goal HAS been hit! all RPG sets will now include a D10 (percentile) that can be used as a D100! The D100 percentile is the D10 die with 0s added after the number: 10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100.

Scorched Earth Chaos Set
If the stretch goal of $100,000 is hit we will produce the scorched earth chaos set! The scorched earth set will run an array of colors similar to the Metal Scorched Earth Metal Dice set that we stock on our website. If this stretch goal is unlocked and you wish to order the scorched earth dice set, you can simply swap the silver chaos dice for this set at no additional cost. If this goal is reached, I will also add it onto the pledge levels for backers wishing to buy the new set.
Inverted Easy Read New Designed Chaos Set
If this stretch goal is met we will make a new set that is concaved, the existing design is raised. The new Dice set will have black numbers for long distance reading. If this stretch goal is unlocked and you wish to order the easy read dice set, you can simply swap the silver chaos dice for this set at no additional cost. If this goal is reached, I will also add it onto the pledge levels for backers wishing to buy the new set.
In order for me to keep the shipping costs down, along with the uncertainty of Brexit, I will try and ship the dice from two locations. If possible, North American orders will be shipped from New York using USPS while European orders will be shipped from the UK using Royal Mail. Postage will be collected AFTER the Kickstarter has ended. If I’m able to secure shipping from the USA, the shipping rates could be cheaper. However, if this is not possible, the worst-case shipping rates (shipped form the UK) are as follows:
UK – Royal Mail £4.00 (GBP)
USA – £15 (GBP) Tracked // £8 (GBP) Standard
Canada – £15 (GBP) Tracked // £8 (GBP) Standard
Europe – £15 (GBP) Tracked // £8 (GBP) Standard
Australia - £15 (GBP) Tracked // £8 (GBP) Standard
*Outside of countries listed above please contact me for an estimate
I'm a very punctual person, people who have followed the campaign will know that I’ve held back on launching the set until I was 100% happy with the final product. I've set below some expected timelines for the product. When predicting the timescales, I’ve went again with the worst-case scenarios but hopefully the dice will arrive faster than the estimates listed below.
August 20th – September 20th: Kickstarter campaign Live
September 20th: Surveys will be sent out. When they have been received, an order will be placed with the manufacturer. The manufacturing process will take about 40 - 70 days.
Once production is finished the product will be shipped to us. The expected shipping times are estimated at 30-50 days.
The dice will then be checked and forwarded to you around late February/early March, if any new designs are unlocked please add 8 weeks for the new sets.
Please make sure to provide me with a correct address to prevent any unnecessary delays. I will keep backers updated if, for whatever reason, there are any setbacks during the production process.

Thank you for reading this and thank you for your support! I look forward to making these dice a reality! If you would like to see these dice made too, be sure to share this Kickstarter with everyone you know, by clicking the banners below!
Risks and challenges
There is also always the possibility of delays in production and shipping time; however, I will be in close contact with the manufacturer throughout the entire process to make sure they are keeping with the timeline mentioned above.
The dice have been approved by the manufacturer and molds are ready to be made. Depending on how sharp some of the points are I may have to round them off slightly and adjust some of the sizings. I will make sure to update the backers on any changes.
I will be personally examining each dice carefully before dispatch to make sure that no one receives any blemished or defective dice.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
