We are making potions that are both beautiful and functional for your favorite role playing games! Immerse yourself in the story with these hand crafted props! They also make great gifts for the whole table!
Our Potions of Healing and Potions of Cure Wounds are perfect for any role-player who likes to add a little flair to their game. They are glass bottles with dyed crystal resin poured inside. Once the resin has cured it remains solid in the bottom, allowing us to drop dice inside! The number of dice in the bottle corresponds with the size and type of potion, meaning that when it is time to heal up, you simply pop the cork and dump the dice out!
The wooden label on the bottle tells what type of potion you carry along with the game mechanics used for it in game on one side, and our DM Oddities logo on the other.
All of the dice used beginning at the conclusion of this Kickstarter will be beautiful and uniform dice from Top Imprint ltd. We have been forced to scour all of our local game shops and eBay for dice up to this point, but funding means we can order our dice in bulk!
At the conclusion of the kickstarter you will be able to select any color for your potion(s) that has been unlocked, as well as having the option to upgrade your potions to a larger size!(more dice)
Our Unidentified Potions are designed for game masters to hand out to unwitting players. Will they take the time to correctly identify the mysterious liquid Within? Or will they recklessly quaff the potion in a moment of desperation? They add a bit of fun and mystery to your campaign!
They are made much the same as our health potions, however instead of putting dice inside we fill the bottle with a customized and handmade scroll. The idea is to give this potion to your players without them knowing what type of potion it is. They are only allowed to read the scroll if they take the time to correctly identify the potion or if they decide to drink it! They then remove the scroll from the bottle and read the effects of the "liquid" inside.
Each scroll is handcrafted to your specifications. They are hand aged with tea bags and we use a calligraphy pen to inscribe any potion you wish on to the scroll! This can be a potion from your favorite role playing game or even one of your own design!
POTION UPGRADES and ADD-ONS
You can add-on additional Potions of Healing, Potions of Cure Minor Wounds and Unidentified Potions to your reward for $15 each just by increasing the amount you pledge for the reward (so example $30 pledge for the $15 reward will allow you to get 2 potions of your choice.)
You can also upgrade your potions to the following by increasing the amount you back the reward over the base amount:
- Greater Potion of Healing +$.50 (4d4+4)
- Potion of Cure Moderate Wounds +$.50 (2d8+CL)
- Potion of Cure Serious Wounds +$1 (3d8+CL)
- Superior Potion of Healing +$1.50 (8d4+8)
- Supreme Potion of Healing +$2 (10d4+20)
The upgrade cost is just to cover the additional dice that are included in the bottle.
The biggest challenge for us is to have the ability to order dice in bulk. This means that in order to make sure that every potion comes with perfectly matching colored dice we will be ordering lots and lots of dice! With each of the first three stretch goal we will be making an additional bulk order of d4 and d8 dice of a different color. All Kickstarter backers will then have the option to select that color for any of their own potions! What we will be left with are a large number of leftover dice that will allow us to continue selling our potions through our Etsy shop and other avenues. For now we are planning to unlock potions in green, blue, and purple. If the campaign is a massive success then we have a few really cool surprises in ! We will also have a special optional add-on in the pledge manager that will be announced after the 15 day mark.
$6,000 Green Potions! : LOCKED!
The Green Potions are a great choice for Greater Potion of Healing upgrade or a scary Unidentified Potion that looks poisonous... maybe it is!!
$9,000 Blue Potions: LOCKED!
The Blue Potion could be a Superior Potion of Healing, or it could be a potion of water breathing!
$12,000 Purple Potions: LOCKED!
The mysterious Purple Potion could be a Potion of Cure Serious Wounds... or a deadly nightshade poison!
We will make any potion you wish in any color that is unlocked. These were just a few examples to get your imaginative juices flowing! We can't wait to see what sort of creative combinations our backers can come up with!

Risks and challenges
This is a fairly straightforward project with the biggest challenge for us being ordering dice in bulk in all of the colors we wish to make our potions. The biggest risk for us is to ensure that all orders are completed and shipped on time. The resin in the bottles expands at a faster rate than the glass when exposed to freezing temperatures. This means that shipping in cold weather is not an option for us! We must complete all orders during the warm months of the year. We are absolutely dedicated to this task and more than capable of meeting the challenge!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
