Hello friends far and wide!
We are very excited to be given the opportunity to partner with Paizo, and knew we had to try something new with it, though at that stage we were unsure what that would be. After we had met with the Paizo team for the first time, and the creative juices were flowing, the idea of doing something big for Pathfinder Second Edition kicked in. We had an interesting thought: what if you could truly, completely customize your dice to your character? Not only by selecting dice colors that match the color palette of your character but also unique glyphs to represent their class, their abilities, their weapons, and their choice of spells.
Introducing Adventurer’s Curated Dice Collection by Level Up Dice - a customizable dice set that fits all of your character needs. A way to not only purchase the specific dice you need to make the most out of your hard earned gold, but also a way to curate a set for your wizard with force damage d4’s and fire damage d6’s, or your ranger with their sword d12 and bow d8 (including the deadly d10!)
The first step in fleshing out this idea was taking in the sheer scale of this project. Level Up Dice decided: if we’re going to create something completely new, we have to do this the right way. Now, to do this and to limit risk we need to use a material we’re familiar with and is highly customizable, which is where we decided on aluminum. It allows us to make the 200+ highly detailed glyphic designs we need to implement this new system properly. This also contributes to working toward the goal of doing this across multiple materials... (hint hint)
To show you exactly what we mean, we’ve taken Alex, the CEO and mastermind behind LUD, and made a set specifically for his rogue he’s playing: two rogue d20’s, three precision damage d6’s to cover the sneak attack, and two knife d4’s for their dual weilding daggers. It's all he needs, no fluff, no dice sitting in the corner of the tray unused!
Once this process was extended to the whole team the excitement was palpable, and we will be sharing our teams sets with you all very soon! For now, the one thing we found incredible and something we thought would get you excited is that we have a potential of over 8,000 dice to choose from in this initial launch alone! Below, we’ve displayed a small selection of these dice for you to see!
With so many options, we knew almost immediately that the best way to bring this to all of you would be with a Kickstarter. It was the only way to properly manage the myriad factors in a project of this scale. So, what now?
We launched our Kickstarter today, January 12, and we want you to join us on this journey! You can click here to check it out, and we can’t thank you enough for doing so. It’s only through you, the player, that any of this is possible. So join us in spreading the news so that we can create and innovate with our partners at Paizo.
Thank you. You’ll hear more from us soon!
Your Character, Your Dice, Your Way
