A dice set to end the problem of predictable, boring characters and npcs! No more overthinking, help us to stop player's Mary Sues and Gary Stus around the world! Quick and easy!
Randice is a dice system with eight dice that define alligment (chaothic evil, legal neutral, neutral bad...), race (between the D&D 3.5 races), gender, social class, worst and best skill (between the 6 in D&D) for creating easy and quick random characters for tabletop rol games like Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Discworld, Anima, etc. The general aesthetic of the dice, the packaging and all the extras are inspired by the old school Dungeons and Dragons logos, guidebooks and illustrations. This set was funded with Kickstarter and is very well loved but the people wanted MORE DICE.
The dice characteristics are the following:
- Made in high quality acryilic plastic
- 100% engraved
- 16 mm
- Perfect weight and they make an awesome sound!
- Dice include full color instructions and packaging
- They are color coded to easy differenciate each category. The blue dice are for alligment and the character mind, pink ones are for the physical attributes, yellow ones for the social status... This system can be used with all dice at a time or separately, providing to you quick response in situations that requires a fast npc!
In this project we present an expansion pack that can be used with the Randice first series or separately without any problem. That pack includes 4 new dice and the possibility of unlock 4 more stretch goal dice with new designs and inspired by your ideas! The quality, size, materials, etc it's going to be the same as the original set, they will be 100% compatible. Let's take a look at the new dice!
In this dice you have designed what is the life purpose of your character. Is he or she searching for knowledge? Only wants a peacefull life and freedom? Is ansious to reach power and social status? Or maybe needs redemption with a promise that he or she made? Is the family his or her life motif? Or his/her stretch in the life is to be the best in his/her job/hobbie?
This usefull dice defines age, it uses one face for being an elder, another for being a child, one for a young adult, another for an old adult and the last two for just a middle aged adult. Is addaptable to any race!
In this 6 new races dice we can find some of the big umbrella race concepts that we couldn't find in the other set (races till DnD 5.0.)
- Use the Beast one for any race that has animal inspiration, like arakokras or leonids.
- The Monstruous dice is for races that were designed for being monsters like goblins, orks...
- The Undead one is for vampires, zombies, werewolves... you can apply to other races too
- Artifact is for golems or warforged pjs
- Planetouched is for the Tieflings,
- The last one is Plant, use them for myconids, dryads...
The size dice for your characters size includes XS, S, M, M, L, XL. It is designed to have more chances to have a "normal heigh" character, leaving have extra smalls and extra large ones like not a very common thing.
ALL THE STRETCH GOALS HAVE BEEN UNLOCKED. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
This project has 4 stretch goals dice that will be added automatically and without extra cost to all the pledges with one physical expansion set once we unlock them. Two of the dice will be chosen by us and two of them by your ideas!
The first stretch goal is the bonding dice and it's pretty fun. Roll it with each pair of characters to know wich kind of relationship they have. Or roll it once for each one for more complex relations, you have multiple possibilities!
This dice is nice to create ships between characters, or adding a spicy line to our campaigns, making the players act like the dice said between them. No more boring perfomance!
The eyes are a really important part of the characters that sometimes goes unnoticed, say no more to this with this die!
Maybe your character has an intense blue look or mysterious black eyes... or even heterochromia! Maybe you can't see his/her eyes cause inventor googles, a hood, maybe he/she is blind... you know! As always, just roll this and boom! a whole new feature to add to your character!
Do you want a complete definded character? Grab the 8 dice in your hands and yeah, shake and roll! There you go, easy peasy, you have a complete character now. We tested this method with our best Dungeon Master and local artist Daniel Corrada Rodríguez, IG: @s_laighe (he loves the dice set!) and he created this awesome drawings with the results:
You can also define individual characteristics by rolling the dice duo or the individual you want. With Randice you can create full NPCS, individual traits about them and reactions! Let's see how the expansion alone works! Next characters are made with the Expansion Set by us!
- Are Randice dice balanced?
They are normal d6 so... Yes, they are! But at a 100%? We don't think so, around a 98%.
- Why the price?
This expansion set is a lil bit more expensive than the original set because it will require less production (the less number of dice the higher the cost per dice) but, with the stretch goals we want to make four more dice so it would be cheaper to have the expansion and the extra dice for you. Hope this makes sense.
- Why Kickstarter?
Kickstarter backers will have the dice before anyone, will take decissions with us about the product and for cheaper than the market price. It's a win-win.

Risks and challenges
All kickstarters have risks, in this case we worked very hard to lower them, we planned ahead, designed all the dice beforehand, talked with the factory and set all the deadlines so delays are under control. All the shippings are registered post, if something happens (lost package or damages) you are going to be compensated, we will send you another package with no additional cost. With all that said, delays and others are still possible and we will take full responsability. Our last Randice project was shipped in time and the quality and customer service exceded the expectations of our backers (yay!). We always do our best!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
