Geek & Sundry dives into the campaign and even touches upon some Wyrmwood history! Read here.
Dice rolls are often a critical moment in gaming - sometimes, the encounter, round or even an entire game can depend on one. Dice tumbling off of the table, or worse, scattering game components across the board, has happened to all of us. But those issues can be a thing of the past with a dice tower providing sufficiently randomized, contained rolls, time and time again. And for those that appreciate fine craftsmanship, natural materials and innovative design, we present the Wyrmwood Magnetic Dice Tower.
Crafted from fine hardwoods, with no dyes or stains, the Magnetic Dice Tower makes a beautiful centerpiece to any tabletop during game night. In addition, our dice tower is designed to easily disassemble for storage and transportation due to the use of rare earth magnets, which hold the tower together:
Assembly is simple. Using our system of stamped numbers, you can rebuild a disassembled tower in seconds - many of our customers enjoy letting their children tackle the assembly as a game of their own!
The Magnetic Dice Tower is the centerpiece of the modular Complete System, which includes the Magnetic Dice Tower, the Personal Dice Tray, and the Dice Vault. Each of these components is detailed more below, and in this campaign, all three components are available independently. Pledge for everything you want, and nothing you don't.
Whether you pledge for the entire system or a single component, Red Oak or Bolivian Rosewood, you're assured of three things:
1) Wyrmwood Craftsmanship We offer quality that is second to none, and work to ensure that each and every piece we create is one that you will take pride in for a lifetime.
2) Wyrmwood Service Our commitment to client satisfaction is a cornerstone of our philosophy and has been from the day Wyrmwood began, over five years ago.
3) The Wyrmwood Craftsman's Promise Our unconditional lifetime guarantee - we stand behind our work and your satisfaction, and if you're unhappy, we will make it right.
The cornerstone of the Complete System.
The perfect companion to the Dice Tower, usable on its own.
The original, and still the finest way to encase your favorite set of dice.
Every piece we produce is handcrafted. We take great pride in the fact that we oversee every element of the production and maintain full control over the entire process, from raw lumber to packed, labeled shipments. This allows us the confidence necessary to offer our Craftsman’s Promise; the guarantee at the heart of our customer service philosophy:
There is only one acceptable outcome for our Craftsmen: a product that they can take personal pride in and an -absolutely- satisfied client. If you are unsatisfied with your product for -any- reason at all, we will fully refund or replace the item free of charge. We always guarantee our products, and we will always pay for shipping.
Exceptional Materials: Every piece Wyrmwood creates is crafted using premium hardwoods sourced from all around the world. We care deeply about the environment and strive to source our woods ethically and responsibly; to that end, we donate a portion of the sales of our rarest woods towards rainforest sustainability and preservation through the Rainforest Trust. For more information on our wood sourcing, visit our website. For more information about Rainforest Trust, click here.
Hand Rubbed Finish: We use a close-to-the-wood oil and wax finish to protect the piece while allowing the natural character, feel, and color of the material to shine through. We never use dyes or stains. A hand rubbed finish is quite labor intensive, but we believe that the results are worth it, and we think you will, too.
From Our Hands To Yours: When we gather around the table for a game, it’s a social event - we understand, as humans have throughout history, that there is something special and unique about our gathering to share time together. Technology can enhance that experience, but can never replace the human element entirely.
We believe that what’s true for the game is true for the accessories you use to bring it to life. Technological advances can remove much of the tedium from woodworking and improve consistency in some operations, but there is no substitute for a highly skilled craftsman and the attention to detail they can bring. That's why each and every piece is made, approved and boxed right here in our shop in New England, and you are directly supporting the artisans of Wyrmwood every time you pledge to one of our campaigns, order from our website, or purchase from us at a convention.
As a player, you put a lot of heart and soul into the character you bring to the table; you should rest assured that our craftsmen put their heart and soul into creating your Wyrmwood piece in the same way.
Our Name and Our Word: Wyrmwood stands for uncompromising quality and customer satisfaction, and as craftsmen we stake our name and reputation on that satisfaction. If you aren’t thrilled, we aren’t done. This is why we unconditionally guarantee our work - for life.
In this video, watch as our Craftsmen J and Cesia craft an entire Black Poisonwood Complete System from scratch.
As a Kickstarter exclusive, we will offer a very limited number of Magnetic Dice Towers featuring hand-cut marquetry and custom inlay. Made with Black Poisonwood, highly figured Maple, Holly, Ebony, and silver, these pieces will stand out on any table. If you're looking for the finest Dice Tower ever made, and craftsmanship second to none, than the Dungeon Master Edition is for you.
Watch the walk-through video below to see how the Costello brothers created this heirloom piece in our New England workshop.
Thanks to your support, we have now unlocked different designs for the Dungeon Master Tier. You can now choose between three options for the inlay on the side of your Dice Tower: The original knot, the Knot of Protection or the Knot of Harmony. Choose wisely!
While some of our backers have clear wood preferences, we know that it's a difficult decision for many - they might love them all! As fans of each and every wood that we work with, we get it, and we have a solution. We call it Roll The Dice, and it's available in this campaign.
When you pledge for a component or components at this level, your wood will be randomly determined from the Kickstarter lineup at the end of the campaign, at Cherry value or higher. This includes any and all woods unlocked over the course of the campaign.
Again, to be clear: the wood of your Roll The Dice items will be randomly selected from all unlocked woods at the end of the campaign - no matter when you pledge, you get access to the whole lineup. Everything from the price point of Cherry, all the way to the top, for the same price.
Not only that, you'll receive a custom text engraving at no additional charge on any Roll The Dice Dice Vault in your pledge! This includes Complete Systems and individual Dice Vaults.
The list of Roll The Dice possibilities can be seen below. We will update this graphic throughout the campaign to ensure it is always up to date as woods are added.
Maps and cartography hold a fascination for many of us. Perhaps it's the way a well-drawn map can bring to life a distant land - perhaps one only found in our imagination? Or is it the promise of adventure, the documentation of discoveries, the historical triumph in charting something so much larger than ourselves? Maps can symbolize all of that and more, and few maps can inspire like those crafted by Deven Rue.
You've seen the work of the Mistress of Maps featured on Critical Role - now, through this campaign, you can display a piece of her artwork at your game table! Pledge at the "Mistress of Maps" tier to choose a map from our selection and have it etched across the surface of a Magnetic Dice Tower. Select one of four woods, all chosen specifically for their ability to act as a complementary canvas and showcase the fine details of the illustration.
Choose between four locations!
New maps unlocked!
Have you decided on a Medieval Banner Leather Strap for your Complete System? Well, thanks to your support, we are now offering ten different types of fields to customize your Leather Strap even further! Simply choose your favorite!
The Magnetic Dice Tower is designed to let you roll all the dice you want, when you want to. The design ensures that there's no place for dice to get stuck, and you can even use it with larger, 19mm dice. You can use it with board games and role playing games, and the magnets enable you to take it with you when you're on the go.
Wyrmwood is a dedicated group of craftsmen based in New England. The company started five years ago with just three people, and a simple idea. As lifelong gamers ourselves, we'd grown up playing tabletop games and forging friendships across the game table, and those connections had remained a part of our lives. But we'd changed in many ways - we'd grown up - and clearly, tabletop gaming had, too. What if the accessories and tools we used to play them did the same?
In the beginning it was just a few friends in a garage workshop, working for a few days a week. We launched our first Kickstarter, and then found ourselves working every day, and bringing in some friends to help.
As time went on, we kept growing - all of us left our other jobs and came to Wyrmwood, full-time, and we kept expanding, launching new projects and products, and traveling around the country to conventions, so we could show our work in person, too.
We found that there were many of us out there - gamers that wanted quality accessories to enhance their experience. We were also able to find more dedicated, hardworking people that loved games and loved craftsmanship - the art of developing a skill and honing a craft, and producing something worthwhile with their hands. We outgrew the garage, and moved into a larger facility. In early 2018, we outgrew that, and moved again.
We're a close knit group of people - we work together, travel together, and, of course, game together. Whether it's Dungeons & Dragons in the workshop after hours, bowling or mini golf on a weekend, or just playing some video games at our Holiday Party, we're not just co-workers - we're teammates; we're friends; we're family.
What started as a hobby for three in a garage has now grown to a career for 40. We've grown a lot, and much has changed, but our mission remains: to create the finest in gaming supplies, to offer unparalleled, uncompromising service, and to strive to continually innovate and improve. In short, to up our game - every time. Through your support, we've been able to keep doing just that - and helping you do likewise with the products and features you want.
Each and every one of us would like to thank you for your support of our work. When you pledge to this campaign, it isn't a purchase of a mass-produced, cookie-cutter product from a faceless corporate machine. It's for a real piece of handcrafted woodworking, created by the people you see here. Your support enables us to do what we love. That means a lot to us, and we're committed to crafting a piece that will mean a lot to you in exchange. So, from all of us, thank you.
Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges
This project, as with every project we’ve done, is rather low risk. All the work is being done in our New England workshop, here in the United States. We're sourcing all of the materials as quickly as possible, having already lined up our suppliers and estimates of our material needs, and as soon as the project reaches its goal, we'll begin production.
This is our eighth Kickstarter campaign, and we’ve learned a great deal from those that came before it. In our very first, the Dice Vault, we were able to meet our deadline for holiday delivery despite an unanticipated and overwhelming response. The rest of fulfillment was complete a matter of weeks beyond our initial estimate. We maintained open communication throughout, and our backers were very pleased - some calling it the best campaign of which they'd ever been a part. Our second campaign, the original campaign for the Magnetic Dice Tower System, was described by one journalist as the "perfect Kickstarter." Our latest and most successful campaign, the Adventurer's Arsenal, is currently beginning fulfillment as planned, and we are striving to finish well ahead of schedule.
We will be communicating frequently, via email/messages, comments on the campaign page, and Kickstarter updates when there is significant information to communicate or monthly, whichever comes first.
If the campaign funds, measures are in place to get production moving quickly and efficiently as soon as possible. With virtually all of the infrastructure in place, we should be able to begin fulfillment quickly, and we anticipate it to be very smooth.
In short, there’s only one thing left that we can't do without: your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
