As most Dungeons and Dragons players can attest, a player’s dice set is in many cases a glimpse into their soul. Tieflings with sharp-edged red dice, Bards with Tupperware of dozens of diverse dice, Wizards with all around worn dice in a velvet pack, and Dungeon Masters with numerous hand-selected D20s each used for quite certain purposes all recount a story. The further one delves into Dungeons and Dragons, the more dice matter. Nonetheless, what another set of handmade “Liquid Core” Dice from Spellbound say is something else through and through.
Spellbound is one of several dicemaker boutiques that have sprung up lately, making handmade dice sets that have unimaginably beautiful esthetics (and a cost to coordinate). Their latest creation as of late gotten a significant measure of consideration on the Dungeons and Dragons fan subreddit. The post was named “I made some liquid-core dice! [oc]” and included a short video of their creation. It deserves a watch, just to see what sort of sorcery Spellbound has caught.
In the video, Spellbound rolls one of their new D20s to show what their dice seem to be moving. The dice, which Spellbound has named Jupiter, is a “dark and glittery” set with a liquid core community. This glass globe focus is loaded up with a combination of glycerin, water, and different glitters. The result, as should be visible, is a beautiful shimmering of gold, green, and red that can shift even lengthy after a bite the dust has stopped rolling.
Some precisely disapproved of Dungeons and Dragons players might question whether the liquid core will influence the dice’s equilibrium, making it less random. Spellbound says that the heaviness of the liquid core is similar to that of a standard core, so it remains focused, and there’s a “extremely negligible” air bubble within so the weight remains uniformly spread. However, those needing an impeccably adjusted set of dice will likely need something machine-tested.
Befitting its beauty, Spellbound is also asking a substantial cost for one of their Jupiter liquid core dice sets. Pre-orders are as of now open at a cost of $180 for a 7-piece dice set, however a D20 alone can be pre-requested for $50. The cost reflects the time and resources necessary to make these handmade dice, so potential adopters should ensure it suits their Dungeons and Dragons spending plan.
Spellbound says that they made the Jupiter set with an Arcane Trickster Rogue as a primary concern, yet they also imagine that they’d be fitting for Grave Clerics as well. Dungeons and Dragons players realize that any given dice set can be made to fit their personality, of course – especially if the dice set costs $180.
