Damage Dice: roll with power for D&D 5e

$273,161

What This Is

Polyhedral dice specifically designed, produced, and packaged for rolling damage in Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition. These sets of 18 dice supplement your standard polyhedral set by adding the quantity needed for satisfying damage rolls—not to mention stylish flair.

 All 10 sets, and their matching bags, unlocked!  

Detail: ColsenKeane Leather Dice Case, handmade just for us!

Pledge Tier Breakdown

Addons Available in the Pledge Manager (after the campaign ends)

  • 6-pack of any type of d4, d6, d8, d10, or d12: $4.50 
  • 2-pack of any type of d20: $4.50 
  • 2-pack of Chaos Bolt Dice: $4.50 (free pack already included for pledges $50+)
  • 5-pack of Bless Dice: $4.50 (free pack already included for pledges $75+)
  • Additional Set of Any Type (18 dice): $18

  • ColsenKeane Leather Dice Case (choice of 2 colors): $145 

Why We Want This

Why do I keep borrowing my neighbors d4’s for Magic Missile? Why am I rolling a die labeled 0–9, when Firebolt deals 1–10 damage? Which damage is slashing and which is the radiant dealt by the holy weapon buff? Essential polyhedral dice sets are designed to be used broadly among many role playing systems and scenarios, resulting in tiny compromises that we all work around. 

But we don’t just think you should be able to buy a dice set with the actual number of dice you need, we also think your toss should feel awesome. Some mis-matched dice of all different colors will turn up numbers for your evil Spirit Guardians just fine, but it’s nothing like watching a fistfull of inky black dice covered in skulls rattle across the battlemat.

Damage Dice sets are special: 

  •  Only dice that are used for damage  (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12)
  •  Multiple of each (4d4, 4d6, 4d8, 4d10, 2d12)
  • Stylish custom engraving of the damage type
  • Embroidered custom bag with damage type

How We're Going to do This

To get from the left to the right costs a lot of money, and it’s all about the molds. To do this right, we need to produce a unique mold for each of the 10 damage types, in each of the 5 die shapes—that’s 50 molds!

You'll be able to select which damage types you want, add sets and other options in our Pledge Manager after the campaign closes. You can give a set to a friend, stranger, or enemy (we won't judge). Or, we recommend having at least two sets of each because Fireball needs at least 8d6! (always take Fireball).

You'll be able to choose from any of the sets no matter how many sets you pledge for (so no, you don't have to take fire first). We can't edit the rewards after launch, and we don't want to add so many to make it confusing.

 Who is doing this?

Gyld is a small, new company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Gordie, Al and James have pooled their free-time and free-cash into this and a few other projects in the name of creating items for table-top that we want to exist (and use). We can't wait to roll with Damage Dice, and with your help we'll be doing it in no-time!

Shipping costs are not included in your pledge. These will be calculated in our pledge manager based on your location. Estimated shipping costs are below, and may change based on location, rates and whatever crazy-crap The Orange One does between now and the ship date.

Risks and challenges

We have already designed and sourced these dice so risks are minimal once funded. There is always a possibility of quality or shipping issues in manufacturing. We have included some extra time in our delivery schedule to have the manufacturer correct any issues before delivering to backers.
