FIRE AND ICE MASTER SETS OF 42

New and one time only, for this campaign only limited edition FIRE and ICE Master Sets of 42 Death by Die™ Dice complete with two Aluminum Red Randomizers. 

I've pictured a single set of Death And Dismemberment dice in the colors offered for these sets to show the lighting and play colors they display. They're brilliant!

These FIRE and ICE Master Sets of 42 will only be offered this one single time, during this campaign and then never again.

Also, I'm offering one of the alternate color choices I had prototyped: RUBY. Its a single Death and Dismemberment set of 8 in translucent red with white ink. It is a 1/1 item and will have its own pledge level.

Pledge levels are as follows:

  • FIRE Master Set of 42 - $200
  • ICE Master Set of 42 -$200
  • RUBY 1/1 Prototypes $50
Now Available! Fire And Ice Master Sets of 42

This Kickstarter Campaign is all about the whole Death by Die™ System and its 42 dice.

The first time I ran a Kickstarter Campaign for the first set of these dice... The Dice of Death and Dismemberment it was canceled due to my inexperience and over-estimation of my brand new product and concept.

Since that time I've created, launched funded and fully shipped rewards for two Death by Die™ campaigns, one of which included (as add-ons) the Dice of Death and Dismemberment but I never really felt like I'd been able to present the whole system as it is, together.

Along with the completion of this first set of 42 dice in the Death by Die™ System I've been able (with backer support) to incorporate to ZUCATI LLC (In Progress) and to Trademark "Death by Die™" (In Progress).

What I need now is help to patent several products that I've developed to become part of ZUCATI LLC's 2017 product lineup and launch.

Getting a design or utility patent isn't cheap and so I'm here on Kicstarter asking for your help to get me to this goal.

I'm asking for help, but am not doing so without offering rewards!
Many pledge levels offer many levels of support and the rewards for each provide many choices for your selection.

The best part of this campaign is that all the rewards are made, and ready to ship. That's right. Zero delay in getting the rewards you select to you. 

When this campaign funds, and I get the money I need to proceed with my patent applications, you get your rewards. 

You will still need to answer a short survey, and the funds will still take two weeks to clear. But beyond that everything is ready to go. Which is why all the pledge levels, aside from the random singles levels are limited. 
 

Single RUBY Death and Dismemberment set in Translucent Red with White Ink. One Only.

So that's the deal, help me raise funds to patent my upcoming product line for ZUCATI LLC for 2017 and in return you'll be rewarded with some of the most awesome and best made dice, and at the best prices to!

Thanks to everyone who pledges for your support.

Death by Die™

Death by Die™ started as an Idea I had to bring back a part of RPG play that I'd enjoyed and been missing since I was a kid. 

From that initial set (Dice of Death and Dismemberment) came an entire 42 piece series that encompassed the whole scope off things I love about randomized play, things I liked, things I dreaded and things I always wished I could roll for...

Master Set of 42

All sets, all dice AND the mystical Red Randomizers.

When you absolutely, positively must kill every single monster in the dungeon and find the most random and highest value treasure and loot, look no further than the Master Set of 42. 

Consisting of 40 six-sided dice, eight dice from each of the five sets and the two solid aluminum, red anodized and CNC engraved Red Randomizers.

When used as a set they have the power to answer any question pertaining to life, the universe and everything.

Death and Dismemberment

This set of eight dice is the first in the series of five sets in the Death by Die™ System. It features dice that allow you as a Game Master to randomly choose the fate of your players, NPC's or monsters when they're attacked, encountered, surprised or just need dealt with. Featuring a wide assortment of actions, reactions, and occurrences ranging from the common (traps) to the almost unbelievable (finding the mass of the Higgs-bosen and destroying all known time and space.
Use one, or use them all, these dice are made for solving the hardest encounter outcome and answering the fate of any character in the game.

Critical Fail

This set was suggested to me by a good friend of mine in the hopes that I could develop a set of dice he could use to demonstrate to his players just exactly how bad an idea it was to ignore in-game GM warnings and what can happen to you when you miss a savings throw or heaven forbid, roll a 1. Consisting of eight dice in total there are six dice, one for each primary attribute: 

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

And two dice who's job it is to determine how successful your attack is and how big an area is affected by your actions:

  • Attack 
  • Area of Effect

These dice together allow you to answer any primary stat-based question, savings throw or occurrence. And with the Area of Effect die, you can see how wide the carnage spreads.

Treasure and Loot

This eight die set answers the question: "So, what did I find?" along with any other loot or treasure related question. Potions, quantities, weapons, animal companions, weapon effects and more are provided as roll-able items and outcomes. Be specific and use the exact image depicted or be more general and use the them of the item or die to determine the riches you win and find.

This set of eight dice takes the treasure, the companions, the beasts and the HOLY SH*T right off the map. 
What can't you do when you roll one of these dice. Made for the highest level of adventure featuring risk and reward.
