About

HI THERE - My name is Matt, but I go by "KC Rift" most of the time - I design, create, and engrave dice boxes and game accessories of all types in my workshop here in scenic Colorado Springs. 

This project brings two ideas of mine together in one great opportunity for you to have a set of dice personalized for you and your favorite character!!

Below are the colors and high number stamps for each of the FOUR CLASSES available! 

All four classes, all four colors, and all for stamps!
All four classes, all four colors, and all for stamps!


HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL GET!  

Select your choice between one of four classes: Cleric (starburst), Fighter (axes), Rogue (dagger), or Wizard (fireball) - pictured above! Your selection will be included on both the dice box AND the dice!

  • A "Dice Stick" with magnetically held lid, whiteboard bottom, and holds up to 10 standard dice
  • A set of 7 Class-themed dice EACH stamped on the high number with the class symbol you chose for your set!
  • An option for your own personal engraving on the "Dice Stick" of each box you purchase
The wizard's fireball will be stamped on the high number for EACH dice in the set

These dice we'll make together will represent YOUR specific character with not only his or her class represented, but also with your own, personal touch! 

That's right - you can personalize the Dice Stick you get through this Kickstarter with your name, a logo, a character sigil or virtually whatever else you'd like to add that will fit on the box! (Add +$10 for engraving) 

This project is in its pre-production phase - we have a manufacturer and are ready to go! We just need YOUR HELP to make it a reality!

More about me, where I work, and this project: 

A little Colorado Springs wildlife outside the workshop...yes, I took this!
A little Colorado Springs wildlife outside the workshop...yes, I took this!

Working the laser is a lot of fun and something I've REALLY learned a lot about over the last 5 years of laser working - some of my early designs were a little...lacking. 

Early designs were...early
Early designs were...early

However, over the last five years of working the system, learning how to work the wood, teaching myself how to engineer boxes, and honing my design/conversion skills on the computer - I've finally come to a point I feel I can really offer a valuable (even beautiful) product to gamers around the country.  

"The Grand Vizier" - Some newer designs that really pop!

Most of what I've been spending my time doing for customers via my Etsy Store revolves mostly around dice boxes of one form or fashion - and I thoroughly enjoy making people happy when I can bring their designs and ideas to life.  

Bringing ideas to life for gamers is my passion!

BUT...my heart will always be with the dice. The DICE are the lifeblood of any tabletop game and have been both my friend and foe since I was a kid - bringing the first adventures of the famous Red Box to life for my burgeoning imagination.

Stretch Goals:

Let's see how the initial push goes and we'll talk :)  

I do have several ideas for stretch goals, including adding a couple of by-request classes - Paladin? Ranger? Warlock?

Risks and challenges

Every project has it's potential pitfalls and this one is no exception.

The boxes are designed and ready to make, but the dice are yet to be stamped. If you are ever in the market, custom dice are EXPENSIVE.

So WHY the $10,000 price tag? The dice alone are going to eat up about 80% of that cost to get the custom stamp on the high-side face of each die - across four classes - that's a lot of work for the manufacturer and it doesn't come cheap.

While they are ready to go, there could always be problems with the stamp, with the dice color, with any number of things that are different than my expectations.

BUT FRET NOT FRIEND - for YOU, the backer will be with us the whole way along this journey and we will continuously update you both here and on our Facebook page as to the status of this project.

Lastly, as I learned from my last Kickstarter, shipping is the true killer of any new endeavor - as a result, I'm asking for you, the backer, to meet me in the middle and help out with shipping.

We know this will work and we KNOW it will be awesome for all our backers. We hope you decide to join us on this journey!!
