Reality Shard, Supernova, & Neutron RPG Dice Sets
5- and 3- layered polyhedral dice for RPGs, board games, & wargaming. Avail in 7pc, 11pc, & 12mm d6s. Three designs, infinite beauty!
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Wed, October 10 2018 3:02 AM UTC +00:00.
Behold, the three new layered dice designs, "Reality Shards", "Supernova Dice", and "Neutron Dice":
The all-fathers of dice, the Reality Shards, are the preternatural parents of dice. They have five pearlescent layers with an awe-inspiring A-B-C-B-A color scheme.
Painstakingly designed, Reality Stones (the d20s), and their Shards (the set as a whole), toss the limits of dice design on its head.
Reality Shards are the direct parents of what you may know of as Halfsies Dice, a living symbol of Unity through Gaming.
...but Halfsies Dice in turn have a half-life resulting in a dynamic explosion that creates...
Supernova Dice are three-layer dice ...with a perfectly translucent center!
Carefully designed, the center of what is otherwise a traditional Halfsies Die has been blown out and replaced with a 100% translucent resin.
The result: The vertices and viewing angles cause various colors to dance through the center as you roll them!
...but when dice go nova, their cores are not destroyed, only ejected! They can be discovered floating throughout the cosmos in the form of:
Neutron dice are three-layer dice ...turned inside out. With a perfectly clear top, and the same on the bottom, it has but a single pearlescent sparkling layer of color through the center.
The result: depending on your angle of viewing, they may appear as a solid color, half colored yet half clear, or perfectly clear on the top and bottom with the beautiful layer of color in the center.
Watch a few seconds of this video to see how cool these dice are...
Gate Keeper Games dice are heavier, denser, and better balanced than what you're used to rolling. They're a real upgrade to your collection.
Plus, we center the high and low numbers on the color halves so you can always find these important numbers quickly, speeding up game play!
A brief overview of the Designs and What's unlocked, and full details below...
Each single die in the image represents a complete 7- and 11- piece set.

You may pledge for ANY combination of ANY sets at ANY pledge tier!
Just apply the total price of the sets you want to a Pledge Tier.
If you want the following 6 Sets:
•Two 7-die Reality Shard sets
•Three 11-die Neutron Star sets
•One 36-pc Inminity set
...you would choose the "6 Sets" tier, and your dollar amount would be the total value of those sets, ie: $81 (11 + 11 + 15 + 15 + 15 + 14). It's that easy!
You will select designs and colors after the campaign is over, in what is called the Pledge Manager.
It is an easy step-by-step process, after the campaign is over, that leads you through using your full pledge amount as credit to select specific dice sets for each dollar pledged. ...kinda like a normal webstore you had a gift certificate to.
Even if you think you pledged the "wrong amount" to the "wrong tier", we can sort it out during the Pledge Manager.
Pledge confidently. We'll take care of you.
Since this campaign is Kickstarter Only, there will not be the chance to join during the pledge manager. Once the clock ticks down that's it.
So get your pledge in early, even if only for 1 set; you can always upgrade later. It also helps unlock more dice sets!

You may have noticed that we priced all 3 set types: Reality Shards, Supernova Dice, and Neutron Dice the same, despite the various MSRPs. We hope you appreciate the choice to align them to the lower price of the 3-layer designs, a choice we made to save you even more money on your early pledge, and to increase your ease of pledge-calculating.
The second Dice Family is:

Our estimated shipping date is May 2019.
We've spent the last 18 months speeding up our turn-around time with both production and delivery, and have made vast improvements. While any timeline stands a chance of getting delayed as there's a always chance of hang-ups with dice production, given the changes we've made in the last year... we outright intend to deliver early.
Shipping rates are guaranteed not to increase after the campaign, even if we see an increase in costs.
These dice will not be available after the campaign for late pledges.
Only existing backers will be able to add dice during the pledge management process. This is to ensure the most rapid turn around of dice production by initiating the most immediate and accurate order possible.

Risks and challenges
In the last 18 months following our house fire and manufacturer issues, we've had a lot of time to regroup, reorganize, and re-calibrate our life, our ties, and our connections. As a result Gate Keeper Games is a better, stronger, and faster dice and game publisher. We've literally spent a year and a half only working re-calibration and designing new products. That is how we are able to bring you so many amazing new products so quickly and easily.
That said, the only real risks are the classic ones of ships being hit by meteors, California customs sinking into the Pacific, or Thanos getting to the dice before we do.
This also isn't our first Kickstarter. It's number 10. And every one has has been successfully completed and fulfilled. We welcome you to contact our previous backers to hear how well we communicate, deliver, and most notably: take care of our backers like our own family.
Ask your questions.
Pledge with confidence.
