PolyHero Dice - Rogue Set

$333,892

6,870

Each of the last two years we've run Kickstarters to produce two sets of imaginative dice, the Warrior Set and the Wizard Set, and thanks to your support they are now both a reality! Both are now available (in limited quantities) from PolyHero.com.

Now it's time for a new set of dice to emerge from the shadows! The Rogue Set is once again the classic 7-piece set of RPG dice (plus a special Kickstarter bonus - see below).

As soon as we hit the funding goal we "unlocked" (both literally and thematically) a special "lock and pick" set, that you can buy as an add-on to your pledge. 

You will be able to choose your colors after the campaign with a pledge manager we will send you. Check out the FAQ at the bottom of this page for more information.

 

 

    

 

All color options have been unlocked! The following Rogue Set colors will be available to select after the campaign!

Prototyping and Development

The Rogue Set was developed over many months, during which we conceived and iterated on numerous concepts, drawing on our own ideas and feedback posted by backers of the Wizard Set campaign. The final designs were settled on with the theme of the dice in mind, but importantly also with considerations of functionality and manufacture.

We felt that the lockpick was the quintessential rogue item, and we iterated through several completely separate approaches to creating a die inspired by it. In the end we struck on an idea that we felt had the right level of fun and uniqueness to it, and developed the lock and pick die as its own more elaborate and special item.

Thank You For Helping Us Run An Awesome Campaign

We're so happy to be here on Kickstarter building and growing our community. We love the direct engagement with you, the backers, and the opportunity to build projects together and bring them to reality. To that end, we strictly adhere to the Kickstarter Community Guidelines. If you violate the Community Guidelines by being a jerk or spamming the campaign, we will refund in full and cancel your pledge and you will not be eligible to receive any rewards from the campaign. We encourage open discussion but we draw the line at abusive language and behavior. Thank you to the vast majority of our backer community who are respectful and thank you in advance for helping us follow Kickstarter's Community Guidelines and maintain and grow a respectful community on this campaign and across Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

PolyHero Dice has created and completed two major sets of PolyHero Dice: The Warrior Set and The Wizard Set.

Our team has delivered hundreds of successful Kickstarter products since 2012, including our own published titles and those we've helped independent publishers run and fulfill. While printing, shipping, and processing delays are always a possibility, we have set a reasonable delivery date based on our experience.

Refunds
If you'd like a refund before your item ships, you have until one week before the scheduled ship date to request one. We can offer you a 90% refund since Kickstarter retains about 10% of your pledge for various fees. If there is something wrong with your item, we appreciate the opportunity to replace or exchange it. If a refund is preferred and there is no defect with the product, you'll be responsible for shipping it back to us. Upon receipt of the returned item, we'll issue you a 90% refund. Refund requests must be made within 30 days of the date the item was delivered to you.

Replacements
We are always happy to replace defective or damaged dice. Just send us photos of the damage, and we will ship a replacement at no additional cost to you. If your item needs to be returned, we will cover the cost of the return shipping. We provide replacement pieces while titles are active in our catalog, which is typically at least a year after their initial printing. Replacement requests must be made within 30 days of the date the item was delivered to you.

Exchanges
Sometimes you may get a set of PolyHero Dice and realize that, even if there isn't anything wrong with them, you don't like them as much in person. That's OK! In this case, you'd cover the cost to ship them back to us, but we would ship you a new set of dice in your chosen color at no additional cost to you. Exchange requests must be made within 30 days of the date the item was delivered to you.
