Remember our Eldritch Dice? We've Finally Made The Game For Them...

Posted by Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions (Creator)

Just last week we launched the Fate of Cthulhu kickstarter. As folks who've followed us since the beginning of the Core era, you'll like this one. It's a "trademark" mash-up of ideas, taking the time-travel action-horror vibe and concepts of Terminator and fusing them with the Cthulhu Mythos—essentially asking (and answering) the question, "What if Cthulhu worked like Skynet?" 

The end result is something greater than the sum of those parts, a fresh take on the mythos and a new way to play Fate. Gearheads like me will love the compact (but not Accelerated) 50-page complete Fate Core found in the book, the time-travel rules, corruption stunts, and more. Folks looking for a fully-realized setting for Fate that's both fresh and familiar at once will love the well-developed apocalypses (and missions to stop them). The book's chock full of the darkest delights — and for a $10 pledge you can get a look at the text-complete layout right away. (Because of course you can, it's us!)

We hope you'll come join us at the new campaign, as Fate continues to fight its way into the future! And thank you as always for your support.

The stars are right for Great Cthulhu's return. It's up to you to make them wrong again!

Fate Accessories Kickstarter Just Got More Awesome

Posted by Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions (Creator)

Quickest possible update this time. The Fate Accessories Kickstarter has reconfigured its funding and stretch goals based on backer feedback, and it means you get more stuff, faster! (It's like a soft relaunch in here...)

We're less than $1000 from funding — and when we fund, it will unlock both the first new Fate Dice set and the new Fate Point tokens (not to mention every shipment will receive free Ghost Dice). 

We've also revealed all of the "layered" dice styles and positioned them as our first stretch goals. They're gorgeous and due to their unique construction method they don't look like any other style we've done before. Head on over to the project to learn more and get a look at them!

Thanks as always for your support.

We have a sequel! The Fate Accessories Kickstarter Is Live

Posted by Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions (Creator)

Hi all!

Four years ago you all helped us create and launch the line of Fate Dice, and it's been going gangbusters for us ever since. Our print runs were in the 8000s, and as of today we've seen at least two of the entries in our Fate Dice line run out of stock, with others dwindling down to 1000-or-so units left. We've had to do reprints and everything! It's nuts, and it would have been impossible without you.

Today we're launching a sequel to this Kickstarter — the Fate Accessories Kickstarter. This is still a mostly-dice-focused KS, but our first stretch goal after the initial funding will also introduce a line of dice-matching Fate Point tokens. We hope you'll check it out. And as fellow dice addicts... we know there's always room for more in your dicebag!

The ENnies Like Our Tentacles

Posted by Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions (Creator)

This year's ENnie nominations are in, and our Eldritch Dice set is up for a possible win in the Best Accessory category. Thanks for making that set possible, folks! 

Voting doesn't begin until July 20th, but we hope we'll get your support when the time comes. If you'd like to get a reminder of the voting when it starts, we'll send that out via our mailing list. 

If you're not signed up for the Evil Hat announcements list, you can do so on — the sign-up form is on the upper right corner of the page.

Thanks as always for your support. Fate Dice have been doing great for Evil Hat. We've really changed the face of what Fate games look like at tabletops around the world, and we couldn't have done that without you!

Second Batch Dice Arrive at the Warehouse

Posted by Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions (Creator)

The Second Batch dice (Valentine, Vampire, Eldritch, and Antiquity) have arrived at the warehouse. 

We've asked our shipping service to try to get it all shipping out this week and next, though sometimes they need to add an extra week or so onto our requested timelines to get all the shipments handled. We're looking at mid-800's on this one, including orders that will contain both Early Batch and Second Batch items. We're super-hopeful this means everyone will have their dice before the year-end holidays commence in earnest! (Not bad for stuff we estimated as shipping in January 2014, if we do say so ourselves.)

Soon as these are all shipped out, this campaign will be a wrap! Still can't believe we spent $100,000 on dice this year with half of the costs covered by this campaign (maybe over half, depending on how cheap the shipping ends up being). It's a huge new entry into the dice market for us, and a game-changing event for fans of Fudge Dice everywhere.

Thanks go to you for making this all possible. You're the best!
