About

As a tabletop gamer myself, I see a lot of great 3D printable scenery and character miniatures but the market is missing high quality 3D printable gear for tabletop gamers, and I want to solve that. 

The Draconic Dice Crypt is a set of 3D printable models specifically designed to be printed on your home 3D printer. Pledges will be delivered as STL files.

I spent months designing, tweaking, testing, and prototyping a dice box unlike anything that I could find in the marketplace. I wanted something that would make my friends envious from the moment they laid eyes on it and hold their rapt attention as I unveiled every nook and cranny that dice and other game pieces could be stored. I loved seeing people's faces light up in excitement as they saw the interchangeable pieces and how each component added something new to the experience with the crowning achievement of 2 hidden compartments! 

The final result of months of obsessing over the most effective use of every square millimeter is the Draconic Dice Crypt. I love that it adds dark beauty and useful functionality to something that we've all taken for granted for so long, the dice box. 

Perfectly sized for your drink

Imagine your game table lined with Draconic Drink Cauldrons for each member of your party!

The Standard Set

The Draconic Dice Crypt was created to allow for interchangeable parts that serve different purposes - from the look and feel to the functionality. The standard set is shown below and additional components available to be unlocked and included in pledges as free stretch goals based on the Kickstarter campaign performance.

Note: The animation below was created from the actual STL model of the Draconic Dice Crypt body (main dice box component).

The lid is an interchangeable component with any unlocked lid

 The standard lid is a Kickstarter exclusive! So you get this lid even if none of the stretch goals are achieved, but if you don't back the Kickstarter, you will lose this opportunity forever. This lid is also reversible and looks incredible either way. 

The lid which seals the Draconic Dice Crypt provides both form and function. Multiple lids allow you to choose the final look of your dice crypt based on your style and needs. Some lids provide additional storage while others allow use and display of a life counter. All lids have slots for optional rare earth magnets to provide that satisfying click into place. 

Share our project with your social network and help us unlock all of the lid options within the stretch goals.

Optional slots for rare earth magnets are included in the standard package

Open slots for optional rare earth magnets provide a satisfying click into place. While these magnets add a finished feel when used, they are not required as all of the components twist into place.

Here is the link to purchase the exact magnets used.

Slots for magnets are included for connections with the lid, bottom insert and dice tray insert (note: the design of the top tray prevents it from moving around in place, so no magnets are needed for that component). 

The Top Insert is an interchangeable component with any unlocked Top Insert

 The top insert is an optional component with a range of options to customize the look and feel of your dice crypt. The standard size top insert shown here provides discrete storage for a miniature or single dice set while keeping the main section of the dice crypt open for a large number of dice.  

The Dice Tray Insert is an interchangeable component with any unlocked Dice Tray Insert

 The Dice Tray Insert is an important component. It serves as a Secret Compartment to hold and protect your most prized dice set in a separate location. During gameplay, this component can hold your dice on the table apart from other game items.

Additional versions of the dice tray provide even more functionality. Help us unlock all of the stretch goals to receive them all! 

The Bottom Insert is an interchangeable component with any unlocked Bottom Insert

 One hidden compartment is not enough for the Draconic Dice Crypt. The Bottom Insert is a second hidden compartment, smaller than the Dice Tray Insert, but large enough for your game components - a tight squeeze for a single set of dice, your favorite miniature, life counter, or any other nefarious items you want to keep protected and hidden away from prying eyes.

Risks and challenges

Most of the models have already been designed, some stretch goals have been planned but not designed. Models that are already designed are expected to be delivered within 3 weeks after the campaign ends and the rest of the models will be delivered as they're completed. All models are expected to be delivered by October 2019. See the "Current Progress" section of the campaign to see the status of each model.
