If you’re quick enough, there may still be a free metal d20 for you as a backer on this assorted high-quality loot from Mark Franzen.
At its heart, the Treasures of the Pirate Necromancer contains fancy die that clinks as you shake since they’re hollow metal and include sparkling eyes. The campaign wanted $2,500 to fund, and launch sees them rushing towards $25,000 instead. You can join in from the pitch page.
There’s more than metal die on offer in the treasure, though; the loot pile also includes daggers designed to hold dice. And skulls, dragon eggs and other add-ons.
Franzen has proven Kickstarter form. He’s previously helmed the metal Christmas Tree dice spinner.
I got mine before Christmas, although I know the logistics woes that struck the world got in the way of that for some backers. I’m happy with the quality of my tree, but I’ve tucked it away until I next dress up Geek Native with festive oddities like flashing snowmen and wreaths.
“Yes…. This will do nicely” The Rogue’s eyes widen as she removes the sheath, revealing sockets filled with 7 large gems along the length of the blade.
A pledge of support of $39 (about £29) will unlock one of the Grim Dagger Dice cases as a thank you reward.
At $45, you get a set of sharp-edged dice with metal inclusions (skulls or dragons), but it takes $69 of support to unlock the hollow metal dice.
There are many higher tiers if you want different dice, amounts or combinations of the loot. The highest, which still leaves room for add-ons, is $115 for both a set of Dragon’s Eye dice and the Grim Dagger.
Shipping will be added later, and the estimated delivery is July 2022, which doesn’t seem all the way far away now.
