Elder Dice: The Colors Out of Space
Arcane dice designs: The Eye of Chaos, Seal of Yog-Sothoth, and The Star of Azathoth. Includes magnetic spell book box, dice trays, etc
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, March 29 2019 2:00 AM UTC +00:00.
Elder Dice are perfect for any fantasy or horror roleplaying game. They are also ideal for upgrading the dice in your board games. We have designed these sets of dice based on three new arcane symbols. Each comes packaged in a matching spellbook box with a magnetic closure and lore card. We also have tubes of six-sided dice in each design for anyone who needs to roll d6s by the fistful. The symbols are located on the highest value of each die.
Each set of Elder Dice contains a complete set of nine polyhedral gaming dice: 1 d4, 3 d6s, 1 d8, 1 d10, 1 d%(100), 1 d12, and 1 d20. Each is packaged in its own matching magnetic grimoire box.
You will choose which sets you want to receive after the campaign through PledgeManager. The $69 and $99 level backers can also choose any Elder Dice set (even duplicates). Shipping will be charged through PledgeManager after the campaign.
Elder Dice is almost ready to send to the manufacturer. All designs and most of the artwork are complete, and the molds for the dice have already been created. We just need your help to fund its production. Without a successful Kickstarter campaign, Elder Dice: The Colors Out of Space will not be manufactured. But there are also other reasons to back now:
- Kickstarter backers receive a large discount off of retail prices.
- Pledge for Kickstarter Exclusive rewards like the Colors Out of Space: Doom Edition playmat and slipcase.
- Your pledge can contain more Kickstarter Exclusive rewards if the stretch goals are unlocked.
- Pledge through Kickstarter to be the first to have the new Elder Dice sets. We will send them to your door.
For all these reasons, make your pledge today to get Elder Dice on your gaming table!
- Shipping will be charged through PledgeManager after the campaign closes. We calculate shipping based on the weight of the rewards and the handling fees charged by our fulfillment partners. This allows us to keep shipping as low as possible for everyone. The following are estimated shipping costs by region. Your actual shipping charge will be calculated based on the items in your pledge after the campaign.
*Shipping costs for the pledge levels above $99 may be higher.
Elder Dice is a production of Infinite Black, LLC. Elder Dice are created by David LaRocca, an artist and designer specializing in Lovecraftian horror, and Heath Robinson, a game designer and author.
Risks and challenges
We are very excited to bring Elder Dice to the gaming community. It's a privilege to be entrusted by so many people to bring this project to life. We will work hard to make sure it is as smooth as can be. Together David and Heath have completed a combined eight Kickstarter campaigns. Each Kickstarter project brings many valuable lessons learned. Because of our experience, we feel very confident in our ability to deliver a quality product to you.
We have allotted time to finalize the project at the conclusion of the campaign, and then we will roll right into production. We have been working with our manufacturing partners in China and the United States for months on these Elder Dice designs to be sure the manufacturing process goes as smoothly as possible. We have a strong relationship with our fulfillment partner. These relationships are incredibly important and give us confidence in our ability to deliver your rewards in a safe and economical manner.
However, with our experience, we know that unexpected issues can arise during the production process. Final preparations for manufacturing after the Kickstarter campaign could take longer than expected. There can be manufacturing delays that are beyond our control. When the product is inspected for quality control, a flaw could be found and a part may have to be remade. Molds may breakdown and have to be recreated. We will not sacrifice quality, even if it pushes the schedule back!
There can also be delays with shipping. Products can be delayed at sea, there may be extended customs inspections, and even adverse weather conditions may slow down local delivery.
Also, please remember that the images shown on the Kickstarter page and in the video are prototypes. The final dice may differ in detail and color. But, when you support Elder Dice, we promise to keep you up to date about its progress from the campaign’s close all the way to when the dice are shipped. As you can see from our previous campaigns, we regularly post updates. We will let you know the status of the project at regular intervals.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
