The Constellation Dice project started in 2015 with a single limited edition glow-in-the-dark d6 manufactured by Q-Workshop, depicting some of the star patterns reported by Ptolemy in his list of constellations compiled almost 2000 years ago. Since he was Greek, those were mostly from the Northern Sky.

In late 2016, a follow-up campaign expanded this concept, offering a new d6 with constellations from the Southern Sky. The year 2017 is, in fact, the 450th Anniversary of the exploration of the Southern Hemisphere, where new constellations were created, as well as the 40th Anniversary of the Voyager spacecrafts. For this reason a couple of d10 featuring the planets of the solar system and their moons were also included.

The campaign quickly reached enough funds to make full 7 dice sets (with the new Southern Sky as d6) while by popular demand the original glowing Northern Sky d6 was reprinted in a new color, Morning Sky:

There are no more Night Black or Sky Blue d6 from 2015 left, but the same couple of d6 pictured above was also remade in Night Black with metallic silver* paint, as a special Backerkit add-on,  available here also in Sample #2:

They are also part of a full 8 dice Night Black set with silver* paint (only 130 manufactured):

On the very last day of campaign it was announced that also full sets with glow-in-the-dark paint would be made to order, along with a few extras; only 150 were manufactured:

What's in here?

This will be a three weeks "deluxe" campaign (quality over quantity) as most rewards will also include the few left remaining glow-in-the-dark and "silver" painted dice announced on the last days (or after the end) of the original Constellation Dice - Voyager Edition campaign.
As you can see from the pictures, those turned out to be the best of the bunch... but very few people on Kickstarter had a chance to find out about them.  

Being hand painted, the glowing dice (and the "silver" painted ones) are extremely detailed and worth the higher manufacturing cost. In consideration of this, this campaign will also offer a new "silver" painted version of the blue Voyager d10 couple (planets d10% / moons d10).

These detailed d10 depict the planets and moons of our solar system (available in Sample #3)

 But there is more! 1000 Fudge/FATE Desired Constellation d6 will be reprinted in a translucent mixed color version (blue and black, with tiny silver glitter) resembling a night sky: the Nebula Desired Constellation d6...

The star of the party will be a completely new d6 dedicated to Astronauts and Cosmonauts, depicting the sky as it's seen from Low Earth Orbit, where the light blue fades to black: the Sky's Edge d6, featuring a font very similar to the one used by your favorite Space Agency:

There are tiers for both new and the original backers, but it will not be possible to mix and match. To keep things simple: no add-ons and no pledge manager at the end.

* high quality metallic paint, not real silver 

Please note also that the glowing is exaggerated for clarity, and although in some cases it is actually discernible in daylight, it's better experienced in a dark environment.

Risks and challenges

This project takes advantage of the experience gained in previous crowdfunding campaigns, and the dice will be produced by the same factories used before.

The usual risk is delays, but to streamline fulfillment this campaign will be kept add-ons free, and the dice will be shipped almost as soon as they arrive, since some of them are already available right now.

The manufacturing time is expected to be about two months, thus the rewards shall be sent in late November / early December 2017. This means you might even be able to get your dice in time for Christmas!

Do not count on this as granted though, as December is a busy month and the customs might be overwhelmed with parcels as well.
