About


About

Somewhere around 2012, I started having a few customized dice made up here and there to giveaway as handouts to give to people at gaming events. It was not long after that, that many in two of the gaming communities I belonged to, Shroud of the Avatar, and the Ultima Dragons, begin indicating I should do an eight-sided die, drawing inspiration from the Ultima Video Games, created by Richard Garriott, and putting a Virtue symbol on each side.

Here we are today, many years later, in which I have given away thousands of dice and sold tens of thousands of dice, finally attempting that project with the help of Geeks Collaborating! 

The Dice

A traditional Beige Polymer D8 with the Virtue symbols ENGRAVED and inked in black. 

Shawn picked out the the style and I agreed with him, on the basis it has a sort of parchment look.

 The Art

Virtue artwork for the Dice was created by  Michael Wight (AKA Gremlin Legions). Some modification to "simplify" it a bit more for dice engraving was done by the dice manufacturers.

Stretch Goals?

8/11/19 -Free Bonus Item Added! Everyone at $1.00 and above will receive a .pdf of print and play cutout Virtue tokens and miniatures.

8/19/19 -Free Bonus item Added! Everyone at $1.00 and above will receive a .pdf of print and play summoning chart.

$1500 Stretch Goal 

Shawn Hescock and I will work on developing a game that uses the Virtue Dice in conjunction with some other components. Components could be things such as playing cards, tokens, and other standard types of dice.

Anyone pledging for physical dice would get a print and play copy and we would also put a physical copy of some type available for purchase in the add-on store.

*Note, game will only require one Virtue D8 to be played.

$2000 Stretch Goal

If we reach $2000.00, every backer at the $3.00 and higher level will also get a standard 7-dice matching polyhedral Dice set (one of each; d4, d6, d8, d10, d10s, d12, and d20). The style/color of the set you get will be random, but would be one of the styles shown on this update

It is likely that if we hit the $1500 goal, that the game designed, will use at least one type of die from a standard poly set, making this a logical next stretch goal, so that a component you may not have laying around the house, is included!

Shipping

Shipping inside the US will be $5, outside the US will be $15. This cost is added to your pledge automatically. The $1 tier has no shipping.

Buy Extras!

Rather then have add-on's after the Kickstarter, instead you may add extra to your pledge for the additional items you want. When we send out the Kickstarter Survey it will have the options for how to allocate your extra funds. By doing it this way, your extra's will count towards funding, increasing the chances of success.

There will NOT be additional shipping for these options, as they will ship with the items from your pledge tier.

The cost for each additional dice will be the same as what your cost per dice for your pledge level was.

$3.00 each the $3.00 and $6.00 pledge, $2.50 each at the $10.00 tier, and $2.00 each at the $20.00 tier.

*Please note you must be pledged at a Dice tier to buy extras, so the $1.00 tier is excluded from this option.

Risks and challenges

The design for everything is already done, and I just need to place an order with my maker. Goal is to have everything going out early December or earlier. In short, just show me the money so I can get it done.
