Norse Foundry Review: Atmar’s Cardography (Fiery Pits)

Improvisation is important as a DM. As is planning. The venn diagram overlap of those two is slight. However, this Kickstarter from Norse Foundry fits squarely between the two. It’s a very weird product – not for people who love cards, not for people who love maps – but perfect for both. Let’s take a gander under the hood of “Enter the Fiery Pits.”

Norse Foundry Review: Precision Aluminum Dice

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!

Metal Dice Review: Norse Foundry Chainmail

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.
