This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sun, January 6 2019 8:54 PM UTC +00:00.
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 3.0 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 is a lovely creation by two young goblins who studied product design, used to work as illustrators and graphic design freelancers and also are dice collectors (uh, nerds.) They were talking about DnD and Discworld campaigns anecdotes and suddenly and idea striked, what if dices could help us even more? how cool it would be if a dice could help us to create and define our characters? We already have different shapes (PolyHero awesome dice, anyone?), colors, textures and even glitter in our dice collections but we don't have any of that! Later we discovered a few business that made some amazing dice that will define aligment, race and social class for rpg characters but we wanted even more, a dice set that will create our full defined characters AND npcs ready to be played. Our product developer Carlos Rodas started setting the most definitory aspects about a character in a fantasy world and playing with drawings and shapes for the dice, our basics were alligment, race and gender, they need to be there. Later we decided that class and job is also a fun essential to limit the present and past of our character and for more fun we added best and worst skill. The Skill Duo is the most innovative and it will be the game changer in all the campaigns.
We want to make Randice come to life not only for us but for a loving and fun community, after the campaign and the delivery to our amazing backers we want to reach the market with an online shop and have deals with our local tabletop game stores here in Galicia, Spain. Also it woud be even more awesome to reach to other countries stores.
The dice set can be used altogether for creating a whole character or individually for specify only one characteristic. Each set includes 8 dices and a glossary:
Social class dice: with this two dices you will define the character place in society, economic situation and what they do for a living.
Race and gender dice: shows which race you have (between the D&D 3.0 races) and what is your gender as well including male, female, none and other for non-binary identities.
The alligment dice: shows your possition in the D&D table of alignments (chaothic evil, legal neutral, neutral evil...)
Worst and best skill dice: Which could be your worst and your best skill between the 6 in D&D
Check the glossary below to see all the possibilities with Randice:
About the packaging
The packaging design will vary between these two options depending on the amount of money collected. Our idea is make a blister, but if we haven't enought founds we will make the second option with a transparent plastic bag and cardboard.
Are Randice Balanced?
They are normal d6 so... Yes, they are! But at a 100%? We don't think so, we can't guarantee high precision and statistical clarity, that isn't our goal with Randice.
Wanna gift Randice to someone this holidays?
Since the dice will not be ready 'till next year (2019) we want to make you possible to gift Randice this holiday, we created digital gift cards so the person will know that in May they are going to recive this special present in the mail. If we reach the funding goal the digital gift cards will be posted in the updates just in time for the 24th of December.
The Social Class dice duo is now redesigned to easy understanding, the final product look is in the glossary (we changed the arrows for a minus and a plus signs).
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 also can 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!

Risks and challenges
All kickstarters have risks, in this case we worked very hard to lower them, we planned ahead, designed all the dices 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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
