Elder Dice is ready to send to the manufacturer. All designs and artwork are completed, and the molds for the dice are already being created. We just need your help to fund its production. Without a successful Kickstarter campaign, Elder Dice: Unspeakable Tomes 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 Unspeakable Tomes: Doom Edition playmat.
  • 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 different 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. 

We welcome any retailers who would like to support Elder Dice: Unspeakable Tomes. By backing the campaign your store can be among the first to get Elder Dice and it is the only way for your store to have Kickstarter exclusives for your customers. We offer wholesale pricing to verified retailers. Please contact us through the Kickstarter message system for information on how to make your pledge.

Elder Dice is a production of Infinite Black, LLC. Elder Dice are created by David LaRocca, an artist 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 seven Kickstarter campaigns. Each Kickstarter project brings many valuable lessons learned. Because we have so much 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 partner in China for months on these Elder Dice designs to be sure the manufacturing process goes as smoothly as possible. We have strong relationships with our international fulfillment partners. These 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 preparation 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. We will not sacrifice quality, even if it pushes the schedule back!

Additionally, we will be freighting the Elder Dice around the world to our fulfillment partners who will then send the rewards to you. Shipping delays at sea, weather conditions, extended customs inspections, and more could potentially delay the project at this stage.

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 what we know, when we know it!
