Death by Die™: Dice of Critical Failure

$4,770

Death by Die™

The Death by Die™ system is a collection of sets of dice made specifically to handle some of the toughest aspects of RPG gaming. It's also made to make you laugh, cringe, and generally have a great time playing with your friends.

Each set of dice in the Death by Die™ system provides you, your friends and your Game Master more options, and freedom to play without restraints, guilt or blame.

Dice of Critical Failure

These dice cover some of the most important and core stats in any Role Playing Game:

  • Strength
  • Dexterity
  • Charisma
  • Constitution
  • Wisdom
  • Intelligence

These six stats determine the fate of your character more than any other attributes, it's fitting that each of them receive it's very own critical failure die.

How can you use these cool dice?

Simple. 

When you roll a stat check against one or more character attributes, and you get a low, or very low roll, then roll one of the Dice of critical failure that matches the stat you checked. 

For added speed and excitement, roll the matching Die of Critical Failure WITH your stat check die, and apply the effects together regardless of how the stat check turns out. 

Please note that the dice shown in this campaign are working prototypes. The images shown here will be improved but not changed for the final product.
