About

The Box of Holding stores all your dice (well, many of them anyway), tabletop mini’s, tokens, pencils and an A6 notebook. You can easily convert the compartments to fit your character's specific gear.

On the game table the leather lined box doubles as a dice tray and the magnetic stat-tracker in the lid keeps track of all your fast-changing stats such as hit points, spell slots, hit dice and class abilities. When the time comes – and we all know it will – it also keeps track of your death saves.

No more endless writing and erasing your quickly changing stats. Simply slide the magnets to their new position after you have lost or gained hit points, spell slots, hit dice or class abilities. The hit point counter goes up to 499 hit points, showing the hundreds in the left column, the tens in the middle column and the single digits in the right column. The spell slot counter shows your available spell slots of levels 1-9. A magnet marks how many spell slots you have left per level. A magnet on the rightmost side means you are at your maximum, a magnet on the left means you are down to one. No magnet means you have no spell slots of that level remaining. 

The magnetic stat tracker is tailored for use in Dungeons and Dragons 5E. 

You can easily adjust the interior of the Box of Holding to meet your own needs. The three wooden dividers can be set in several positions forming 1-6 compartments to hold your gear. 

Each dice box comes with a block of pick and pluck foam which you can easily tailor to the size of your miniatures. Simply pull out the small blocks along the pre-cut lines or use a boxing knife for an extra sharp finish. 

DM version

If all the players show up to the game with a fancy Box of Holding, the Dungeon Master or Game Master should get one too! That is why we have developed a DM version as well. Now the DM can easily keep track of the hit points and spell slots/ abilities of 1 boss level monster and up to 5 of its minions. The DM also gets twelve magnetic tokens (6 player tokens and 6 monster tokens) to keep track of the initiative order.

Because the DM also has to carry around more mini's, the DM's Box of Holding comes with a double-sized block of pick and pluck foam. 

Wood varieties

All Boxes of Holding are made out of durable wood varieties to make sure they will last a lifetime. Each one is selected for its natural color and appearance. I do not use any stains or coloring, all the color you see is the natural color of the wood itself. This also means that each Box of Holding is unique and that the color and pattern of the woodgrain of your own Box of Holding will vary slightly from the one shown in the picture. All wood parts are finished with a coat of plant-based wood oil to protect them and highlight their natural color.  

Available wood varieties (from left to right): Walnut, Oak, Padouk, Wengé

Why are all wood varieties priced at the same level while other woodworkers charge significantly different prices per wood variety, you ask? Well that is because the price of the raw lumber is only a small portion of what it costs to make a complete Box of Holding. Most of the costs go to labor, purchasing and engraving of the metal stat trackers, and let's not forget about taxes :). Charging different prices per wood variety would make it much more complicated in terms of reward levels, while the price difference would only be a few euros. Instead I decided to keep things simple and stick to one price for all wood varieties.  

You can also choose from the following available leather colors for the inside lining of the box:

You can choose between two colors for the leather liner of your Box of Holding; brown and red

 Add-ons

I already make beautiful regular and hexagonal diceboxes, and they are also for sale as add-ons during the Kickstarter! This way you save on the additional shipping costs. They can be bought in 6 wood types. The pricing is different, because some wood types are more expensive for me to buy. The wood is also a bit tougher, making it harder for my machines to process the wood.

To purchase one of the diceboxes as an add-on, simply add the cost of the dicebox to your pledge amount. 

Engraving

Do you want to make your Box of Holding even more awesome? If there is a line art image or text you would love to have engraved on your Box of Holding, we can do that for you! 

You can choose this option for any of the wood varieties and for both the player version and the DM version of the Box of Holding. Simply select the corresponding reward level.


We need your help!

To truly make a success of the Box of Holding we need to tell as many people as possible about it. In the past few months we have showcased the Box of Holding prototypes at several conventions in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany to gather feedback and rally support. To spread the word even further, you can help by sharing this Kickstarter with anyone whom you feel may be interested in the product. A great way to do this is of course on social media. Follow @WoodgrainGaming on Twitter, Instagram and/or Facebook and share our posts. 

As a thank you for your help we would like to give something in return. If we reach specific numbers of shares/retweets on our social media accounts we offer the following rewards:

We do understand that you might not want to spam all your friends and family and only tell other Dungeons and Dragon players about our Kickstarter. And that is ok too! 

That is why we will release ALL Social Media stretch goals when the Kickstarter is succesfull, even when the number of shares/retweets did not reach its goal! Because in the end, all we want is for this Kickstarter to become a succes :)


Stretch goals

The more people know about our Kickstarter the more backers will support the Box of Holding. That's the plan anyway. So should we blast through our intitial funding goal to make the Box of Holding become a reality, we would like to give something in return. If the following stretch goals are met, it will unlock the following rewards:

General info

The exterior size of the Box of Holding (both player and DM versions) is 25.5 cm * 15.2 cm * 3.7 cm (10 * 6 * 1.5 inch). The interior is 25 mm high (1 inch) and will fit standard sized mini's with bases of 25 mm. The smaller dice slots on the side of the box will fit two 7-piece-sets of standard sized dice. Larger dice up to 25 mm in diameter will easily fit in the other compartments. 

We care about our planet. And we believe that our hobby, awesome as it is, should not go at the expense of our planet. That is why all of the wood we use, even the exotic varieties, are all sourced from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved forests. This means that when a part of a forest is cut down for lumber production, it is replanted with a mix of trees and plants that is indigenous for that area. This ensures that the biodiversity of the forest is maintained for flora, fauna, local communities and future generations. If you would like to know more about the Forest Stewardship Council, please visit their website at www.fsc.org 

Risks and challenges

My workshop is already outfitted with all the required machines to make the Box of Holding. I also have my regular suppliers for wood, the metal sheets for the stat trackers and all other materials I need. Therefore I do not expect any risks on the production side.

I have set limits to the amount of available pledges per delivery period. From past experience I know how many units I can produce within a stated time frame. Should the demand for the Box of Holding exceed the initial available pledges, then I will add additional pledge levels with a new time frame, ensuring that all previous pledges will be fullfilled on time as promised.

The biggest challenge we are facing is the reach of this campaign. Although I have been wood working all my life, I have only recently started making gaming accessories and I'm working hard at building my customer base. You can help too by spreading the word about the Box of Holding. Please share a link to this Kickstarter page with whoever you think may be interested in the product and follow @WoodgrainGaming on social media. With your help we can make the Box of Holding a reality!
