The folks at Die Hard Dice have been paramount in their customer service and willingness to work with and for the tabletop community. Their store gives you tons of useful information about these dice sets – enough you should feel comfortable buying them without my opinion. Yeah, I know that’s pretty damaging to my own platform, eh? But it’s worth commending them. If you’ve checked out their Forge Dice line and are still unsure, you’ve come to the right place. Lets take an intimate look at their “Force Dice Shiny Silver w/Black” (certainly not the catchiest name… )
We’ve seen a lot of dice form Die Hard Dice – and they’re generally pretty damn nice. I’ve always had a soft spot for their Gothica series – and I finally get to bring them to your ocular sockets!
Low and behold, it’s been a rainy, foggy, gross mess for two solid months – so these photos are all over the place. Bear with me as we talk about the highlights and low-points of Gothica Ruby and Silver!
DnDice.UK has been going far beyond your average dice shop. Since I was introduced to Grady, this company has continued to surprise me month after month with their dedication and hard work. Now we get a chance to look at their new precision milled aluminum dice – each of which are named after a Legendary dragon from D&D’s past iterations!
Today, we’re taking a look at Tekthyrios, a Storm Dragon who was fed mushrooms that let the portal in his belly open to fiends who nearly destroyed Celestia…. not making this up.
Novelty is sometimes dangerous. Dice that light up, dice boxes that have levels and snaps and foam inserts, dice trays that look like a honeycomb – they get annoying, in the way, or cheapen the product.
One example of novelty done right in my mind is glow-in-the-dark dice. Die Hard Dice is the first set I’ve had on this blog and, if the preview image isn’t a big enough spoiler, they’re pretty damn cool. Lets take a closer look.
Easy Roller Dice and I have had a wonderful professional relationship since I’ve started this whole blog thing. I have to say, I am a little partial to their products – they tend to be simple and well executed, clean and crafted well, pragmatic.
Today, we take a look at their Legendary Metal D20s!
So we’re tackling yet another dice set this week – unfortunately they are the only photos I have prepared due to personal issues, but I’m incredibly excited to finally get my hands on Die Hard Dice.
First impressions are lovely – these dice are an oil-slick style multi-color metal set that may possibly go with every other color set you own. Unfortunately Scorched Rainbow dice are out of stock, as are most of them, on the Die Hard Dice website, but if you look around enough you can find them from other sellers!
Let’s look at everything these dice have to offer – ONWARD into the review!
Some companies, including DnDice, have dialed in their product to exactly what they want, and it shows. While hitting all the same high notes as their Ancient Dragon dice set, their Metallic Dragon offering gives a wonderful alternative in feel, finish, and color to their other offerings. Let’s take a closer look!
In the end – it is “Drop The Die” not “Drop The Accessories,” so back to our roots! The extraordinarily kind people at Kraken Dice have really taken extra effort to blow me completely away! You can see a complete unboxing video here
We’ve had a dice-heavy couple of weeks – but damn if I don’t still love ’em! This week, we’re checking out a completely new company, for this blog – Paladin Roleplaying!
I stumbled onto these guys by complete accident – seeing one of their products listed on Amazon. I contacted Neil and asked him for recommendations, his favorite sets currently offered, and snagged them all for a nice highlight review for you guys. There are hundreds of dice companies popping up all over the place, so it’s important you know who you’re investing your time and money into – and by the end of this review, i hope you’ll feel as comfortable as I do with Paladin dice. Let’s jump right in!
So Darksilver Forge may not have many options available right now, but what they do have is uniformity and consistency. Today, we’ll be taking a look at their second “launch” set of dice: Cthulhu’s Gold. Let’s step right into the review.
It can be hard sharing your hobby with people around the globe. Given the state of postal services now-a-days, there’s always the option to order long distances, but given shipping rates it’s best to be sure of what you’re getting into. So today we look at a product from across the pond from my friends over at DnDice UK
Back to my truest of true loves. Metal DICE! A relatively unknown company to me I stumbled ass backwards onto, happily, is Darksilver Forge. We’ll be taking a look at one of their (currently) two metal dice options. Let’s dive in.
All of you know by now that I’m a huge fan of Easy Roller Dice Co – from pounds of dice to beard oil and everything in between. I’ve done several reviews for them and used dozens of their products in photo shoots and at my table every week. My constant flaunting of their fantastic Gunmetal Dice led my table of 7 players to hoard together 8 full sets of them in various colors – not including my own Legendary Copper dice. Having the ability, I’ve decided to compare, contrast, and review the various color options so you can make a more informed decision when you, dear reader, are ready to purchase ten sets yourself!

In honor of Norse Foundry sparking off their new and improved website, I’ve decided to publish a review of their flagship precision aluminum dice! The price tag on these are quite hefty, but before you make a decision one way or another, you need to be informed. At the end of the review, I also have a 20% off coupon code for you gals and guys! I won’t be hurt if you skip ahead.

FATE is one of those RPG systems that you either love or hate. I seldom meet people who fall anywhere in between. The system uses extraordinarily loose rules and a math-light system of + and – symbols to determine the effectiveness of any particular action in the game. Having said that, we’re going to approach this review in a similar way: fast and to the point, highlighting the pros and cons to this Metal Dice option available from Norse Foundry, since they’ve earned the benefit of the doubt in the past, we’ll start with a 3 (Good) by FATE rules.

After a dumb hiatus, I am happy to kick off a new “season” of reviews with these absolute monsters. Easy Roller has become a name pretty synonymous with quality: as such, I have nothing to add as far as packaging goes, as each and every set of these dice come in the very lovely Leatherette Cases offered by Easy Roller. If you haven’t given it a look – go back to my Legendary Copper review. But ONWARD to the Gunmetal “Serpent’s Blood” Dice review.
The success of my last review has done very little to slake my dice addiction. We’re past the point where numbers even matter, my friends. The best part of my last review was hearing from so many people that it inspired them to take the leap of faith and try out metal dice for the first time – and I heard zero complaints!

I’m something of a “dice addict.” Twenty eight sets of various colors, sizes, shapes, clarity – but that does not mean I’m easy to please. Once I finally dipped my toe into metal dice, I knew it was bad news for my bank account and any silent DM rolls from then on.
The newest addition to my ever growing collection came from Norse Foundry in the way of their “Chainmail Silver” dice set – apparently one of their older offerings. Part of the reason I chose this set was because I had absolutely no idea what color they were even supposed to be from their website.
