About

Now You're Rolling With Advantage!!

Hi everyone! I'm Gil Ramirez, the Vlogsmith.

For 18 years I have been blacksmithing, and I've always wanted to fuse my love of RPGs and making things by hand.

A few years back I was challenged to make a hand forged D20 die and after a few months it took off!

I couldn't keep up with the demand. And I told myself if I was going to go any further with this endeavor I would need a better work space so that I can go full time.

Making the jump from being a hobbyist to a full time smith is difficult but with your help I will be able to purchase the machines necessary to drive what I do forward, and get the space to put them in.

I intend to get a shop space of about 2000 square feet in Orange County with a two year lease. Which is around the ballpark of $16,000 per year

The press I wish to acquire is $8000.

Other items will include a belt sander, grinder, tumbler, glass bead blaster, and welding unit. The total of all these items comes to about $40,000

I've been blessed to be a part of such a supportive community of geeks and gamers and your support over the last few years has meant the world to me. I'm grateful for all of you who convinced me to launch this kickstarter and I'm excited to see what the future holds.

***IMPORTANT*** 

If you wish to donate to more than one tier than I suggest clicking the "MORE THAN ONE OPTION TIER" and you will be able to finalize the options in BackerKit after the Kickstarter has run its course. 

It's also important to note that the if you wish to acquire the gold D20 (or other limited number options) that you need to click that tier so I can see that it is clicked and. Basically all of the limited tiers are meant to be clicked and later finalized if you want to add other options including stretch goals.

***Stretch Goals***

After reaching $50,000 backers will unlock the "F*CK" option stamped on their dice

$60,000 backers will unlock Brass D20s

$80,000 backers will unlock Titanium D20s

$100,000 backers will unlock Damascus D20s

Risks and challenges

The timelines for rewards may vary as the machines and parts for them come in. I have given them ample amount of time but there may be delays in shipping. I hope i have allowed enough time for this. If
I am able to go well over the goal then I will be getting the best the industry has to offer.
