About

Hi there! We are Random Encounter Dice, an Australian RPG & Tabletop dice & accessories store.

We have been filling nerds' mailboxes with dice for a year and a half and we want to extend our range to include more awesome products!

We are hoping that with your help we can bring these brave heroes to life!

We found this message on a note near two dice shaped adventurers that had been turned into a black metal substance, both being close to 1.25 inches tall. 

We’re going to go deeper into the labyrinth to find the others, but we need your help to get us there. If you can help fund this campaign, we’ll produce these little guys as black nickel plated enamel pins, each with a metal butterfly clutch on the back. We’ll be using a trusted manufacturer whom we’ve worked with previously to create our D20 dragon pins (photo further down).

If you’re not sure which pin you want right now, don’t worry. You can roll with the advantage of knowing you don’t have to decide till the campaign has concluded. If the campaign has been backed by the 22nd of July you’ll be emailed with a Kickstarter survey, which will let you select which pins you’d like from those we’ve discovered.


 Initially we’ll have two Dungeon Hero designs available. Stormlord, the apparent leader of the group... he looks like a spartan D20. The other one, Gravemaker, a classic D4 edgelord rogue/ranger type. Not sure what his deal is, but he looks wholly unimpressed about it. 


From what we gather there are another five Dungeon Heroes to find. The more we raise, the further we can explore to find these lost adventurers, each new one becoming a pin design. Who knows, we may even get a shot at the big bad evil creature discovered in the deep. 


Level 2 Unlock - Sticker with every pin

From what we gather from the note, the Dungeon Heroes are in a sticky situation. If you help us find ‘Hunter’ every pledge order will receive a sticker featuring all the heroes.   

Level 5 Unlock - Dragon Hoard Pin - Cavalier level pledges and higher 

If we manage to find and rescue 'Fartacus' we'll have found all the Dungeon Heroes. As a reward, every pledge at the Cavalier level or higher will receive a FREE limited edition Kickstarter dragon head pin. This pin will only be available as a reward for this campaign.

Proof of Concept

We've created some examples of how the pins will look when made. 


Timeline & Funding Summary

  •  June 22nd 2019 - Campaign starts
  •  July 22nd 2019 - Campaign ends and surveys are sent out to backers
  •  August 5th 2019 - Surveys collected & pins are ordered
  •  Mid September 2019 - Pins received and each pin is quality checked
  •  Late September 2019 - Shipping starts

We will do everything we can to get the pins out as fast as possible and keep you updated on where we are in the process.  You will have two weeks to complete the survey so that everyone has plenty of time to select pins they want!

Production - 70%

The majority of the funding will go into the production of the pins. This work will be carried out by the manufacturer whom we have worked with previously for pin productions. They have the highest level of quality that we’ve seen, with each pin we’ve had in the past being completely flawless.


Shipping and Packaging - 20%

We’ve had plenty of experience with shipping and handling products through our online store.  Please see our Risks & Challenges section for information on shipping. 


Kickstarter Fees - 10%

Kickstarter take roughly 10% of the funded amount. This is broken up between transaction fees and commission.


Past Work

As previously stated, we’re using a trusted manufacturer again for this campaign. Previously we created our awesome D20 dragon pins. We were extremely happy with how the D20 dragon pins turned out and we are so excited to work with them again.

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges
We have taken every action to plan for any risk or challenge that may arise and we believe we have covered every possibility. In the event that something does arise or there are any changes we will contact you ASAP. Risks involved will be possible delays in the manufacturing and shipping stage.

Manufacturing
Designs have already been approved by the manufacturer. We have accounted for any unexpected delays in the manufacturing stage, but it is unlikely this will happen. We have worked with this manufacturer before and we are extremely happy with their work and the time frame in which they produce pins.

Shipping
We have experience shipping and handling products through our online store and the only issue we may have is delivery delays. You will be notified when we start the shipping process.
Estimated shipping times from Australia Post
Australia - 4 business days
International - 3-4 weeks
We will be sending orders via Australia Post. The orders will be sent as economy large letters to make the shipping as cheap as possible for you.

Please note that the shipping we offer is untracked. If you'd certainty that your package will not be lost, please add tracking to your pledge.

To add tracking you will need to add the extra $ amount when you make your pledge.

Please be aware of your country’s import taxes and customs fees. Backers will be responsible for these costs and inability to pay these costs will result in the package being returned to us. We can only resend the item if shipping costs are paid a second time.
