ROLE WITH IT - DICE
Every tabletop player love their dice. For many of us they are our sword, arcane focus and ultimately our character. But we often purchase dice based on what we like, not matched to the character we created. As a company our hope is to change that, so when you look at our beautiful dice you see your character's reflection looking back at you. A physical embodiment of your imagination come to life in your game. Our dice are extremely unique from colors, fonts, styles, and even the type of metal are altered to match the game, world, class, race and personality. Below our some examples from generic races to some of my favorite characters of all time. Feel free to talk to us about your character and vision for the dice that reflect their personality.
ROLE WITH IT - LUXURY WOOD DICE
When we craft with metal we start with nothing and create to match the appearance and characteristics of characters. With wood nature does the crafting, we only capture the beauty of trees. These dice sets are life preserved and each one is 100% unique. The colors, grains and story come from the most beautiful woods both foreign and domestic: Acacia, Beech, Cherry, Ebony, Red Sandalwood, Rosewood and Teak. Match each set of wood to your game or to your characters' life, personality and story. Below you can read about each wood and discover which set is right for you!
Acacia, Acacia timbers are a hardwood praised throughout time for ships and one writer in 1791 enthusiastically proposed planting some 10,000 acres of the tree to provide an source for the British Navy. A popular wood for its attractive straight grain and black heart tree. A smooth wood with a flat texture, the light down brown. Great for dark straight forward characters, sailors and more. This dice set is rich chocolate brown. It has the appearance of a canvas where the painter has done dark brush strokes across each face of the dice.
Teak wood has an abundance of natural oils and rubber locked right into the tight grain of the wood. Teak, however, can retain these oils and its rubber even after being cut. Teak is resilient being naturally weather resistant and arguably the most durable wood in the world. The oils and rubber protect the heart of the wood from invaders like fungi and parasites creating dark ringed look in the wood. Teak is beautiful and filled with unique swirls and circles in the dice. For the sturdy, resilient and well rounded traveler.
Cherry is one of two domestic woods we chose when creating our line of luxury wood dice. It is by far the "cleanest" or "purest" set of the seven available in our kickstarter. Cherry wood is one of most prized hardwoods in America. A smooth-grained, reddish-brown hardwood that comes from the American Black Cherry fruit tree. Cherry wood's color darkens with age and exposure to direct sunlight. So when you get this set take a picture and compare it to the set a year later. The wood appears almost a solid color and is a beauty to behold. For the clean, prepared and straight forward adventurer.
Ebony wood is famous and has a history dating to Ancient Egyptian pharaohs and their tombs. This luxurious wood is dense and highly sought after for its wild grain. Famously used in religious items and music instruments. Ebony grain and heart tree unlike other wood is not a continuous line but a sporadic bridal pattern. Natural black wood with black grain it has a beautiful unique design on each dice. I am currently using this set for my upcoming Necromancer who is chaotic good. A beautiful wood with a custom look all of its own. For the dark and a mysterious, to the striking and beautiful; these dice won't disappoint.
Red sandalwood is limited for kickstarter only and for a couple reasons. Natural Red Sandalwood is a rare tree and purchasing wood is very expensive. The wood at the center of the trunk, heartwood is used as medicine and great for our medics/clerics. For thousands of years this tree has been used in royal houses, temples and for eastern medicine. A slow growing tree its outer wood has a smooth texture and a unique heart tree grain. The heart tree and wood near the center reminds me ant colony or micro rivers of red running through the wood, really amazing to behold. This wood is arguably the most sought after wood in the world and can be used for any character big or small, good or evil. We are limited to the wood we have!
Rosewood - Is BY far the most dramatic wood set. Absolutely stunning it has a bridal grain design reminds me of a pitbull or tiger stripes. A strong wood with a great aromatic presence and that is where it derives its name. Used for guitars, luxury wood creations and . Its heart tree is a dark brown/black and cuts near the center will reflect that. (As seen on the d20. )A great set and I would pair it with a charismatic and confident. Marvelous to watch role across a table.
Beech is a well known hard wood that features pale sapwood and dark heartwood that is closer to the center of the trunk. The wood has a fine grain. It is sturdy, shock-resistant and is beechwood burns hotter than many other woods! It has long been the traditional preferred fuel for heating in stoves and furnaces, a pyromaniacs. This unique wood is great for our fire starters, our clean cut characters with a dark side. One side is clean cut, light wood with its dark heart slashed across its face.
Wood Dice Overview
Each wood die is unique. No D20s, D4 or 6s are the same because the grain and hearts of the trees are unique. Where we cut from the wood is always different so every set it 100% its own design. Captures its own part of the wood and life of the tree. Our luxury wood is not stained, dyed or manipulated for colors. You get real beautiful wood dice with a light clear protective coat to keep them as beautiful as the day they arrive. For an amazing price of 99$.(Compare to see the savings $$$) If you want duplicates of single dice or want us to do large orders for you store message us and we can figure out pricing and more importantly a timeline.
Mystery Boxes, Dice Towers and Everything Else
Our launch includes a lot of beautiful and wonderful dice but we aren't a dice based company. We will sell dice and continue to offer custom dice for your characters and creations, but they aren't what makes us unique. We want to launch to show off our nine product lines with amazing merchandise for Role players. The mystery boxes are first edition creations and know you will love them. In the future we will offer these boxes from various levels standard to luxury. These boxes are luxury grade and then some, including one of one items. They all include at least one set of luxury dice, a dice tower and then class specific roleplaying props and more. Items created from historically accurate materials, techniques and most important feel. (Example paper is made from hemp or cotton. ) The dice towers are as unique and different as the dice that accompany them. We are only offering them in limited quantities because of how long and tedious they are to make. WE hope when you purchase these items you will take pictures and send them back so we can use them for our upcoming website!
The DM/GM set is a lot of wood, metal and creation. These are the future of luxury table top gaming. It includes character sets, dice sets and so much more for table top Role playing game. Its value is 1500+. My car is kind of a joke, but like everything on our kickstarter it is price well below market. Our gaming tables always include led screen and digital maps, beautiful engraving and are 100% custom. Purchase with confidence and you will see our rewards are well worth the support!
Role With It - CAMPAIGN A HEAD OF US
Greetings adventurer! Welcome to our business's launch party hosted by Kickstarter. We are Role With It, a company dedicated to enhancing roleplaying across all genres of gaming. It started years ago as kids, my brother and I would spend our days in different worlds without ever leaving our home. Now adults with careers in fabrication and manufacturing we still Role play together in a weekly session. At the beginning of summer my brother and I created some custom items for our characters and our RP party. The response was great and before we knew it, we were making versions for the entire party’s characters. We continued to brainstorm and stayed late at work using the resources our job provided to create even more items for our game. What happened next was amazing, our game got better. Our party, including the loot obsessed murder hobo rouge, started Roleplaying more. We loved it. Not just the game, but encouraging players who normally shy away from the Role playing to embrace and have a blast doing it. So, we began to make plans to bring these ideas to the world.
We created nine products lines, each including a few versions of the original. Hours of detailing and drafting on our computers, thousands of hours of game play experiences and weekly play testing. We’re confident that gamers like ourselves will love our products. Drafting a plan to share these creations with the world we ran into some obvious problems. The equipment we used to create our originals is not accessible to us whenever we need it. Our work is very generous and lets us use it on our free time. But without giving up our sleep we would not be able to full fill orders and properly serve the RP community. But to purchase the machine we need is over 20,000 USD. A hefty cost for a new business. Thanks to our wonderful bard’s real life inspiration, we have come to kick starter to help us buy the equipment we need.
We adapted plans to crowd fund, purchasing far less expensive equipment and have decided to create the shared passion of all table top gamers as rewards; dice and a few other small items. We are offering plus size metal dice of the large size (20mm, instead of 14mm standard), quality and more colors than ever seen on kickstarter. Amethyst quartz dice iconic for its beautiful natural purple and rich history of magical properties given to our supporters at a fraction of what others have charged. For a little luxury and fellow Druid players like myself, I offer Solid wood dice sets, hand crafted with light glaze to preserve the natural beauty of the most beautiful woods in the world. Along with dice, we have giveaways, mystery boxes, dice towers, class character accessories and even my car! We are sitting at a table in an inn, who will come and join our party on this adventure?

Risks and challenges
Our current challenge is just not having access to machinery that is able to cut metal, bone, stone and wood to the degree we need it. Our current at home equipment requires cut by cut supervision and great attention to detail. It makes the process to make many of our products take hours and more if we make a small mistake. Mistakes not possible on industrial machines that remove the human element from the manufacturing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
