Supernal Star Seeds RPG Dice (14) | Vello's Crystalized Creations RPG Dice (14) | Eldritch Ruin Fragments RPG Dice (14) | Wizard Van's Stellar Stowaways RPG Dice (14) | SYSTEM: Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG and Mutant Crawl Classics RPG – the new Peter Mullen Cover by Goodman Games

  • RETAIL PRICE: $34.99 each
  • DESCRIPTION: Each dice set includes a complete set of 14 needed dice: d3, d4, d5, d6, d7, d8, d10, d12, d14, d16, d20, d24, and d30, plus a percentile d%. Supernal Star Seeds are lavender dice with a silver metallic fleck and gold numbers. These strange star seeds fell from the sky and over time bloomed into a magical and celestial plant known as the cosmic lotus—a shimmering lavender and gold speckled flower with the power to open inter-dimensional portals and defy space and time. Vello's Crystalized Creations are a swirl of cotton candy pink and baby blue and gold numbers. The wizard Vello was known for the creation of magically-imbued sweets of various types, which all have a minor magical effect when consumed. Sadly, the wizard was turned into foodstuff by a candy golem of his own creation. Eldritch Ruin Fragments are a blend of dark blue and rust red in a metallic swirl with gold numbers. Long ago in the southern wastes great cities were raised up by powerful magic before falling into ruin from cobalt volcanoes. The eldritch power that flowed through those cities remains in these fragments and many an adventurer has perished attempting to find and claim them. Wizard Van's Stellar Stowaways are harbingers of new connections between extant realities and where they go weirdness is sure to follow their far out mix of green, red, and purple in a metallic swirl with gold numbers. Passing through dimensional barriers has charged these cosmic randomizers with the energy of one thousand insane worlds, and now their very presence can cause the lines between worlds to blur, buckle, and even break. Groovy.

Just grabbed Creature Feature (a new sourcebook/modules for BTS....with a lot of monsters in it?....wow!) and got the whole Blade Runner package straight from Free League just in time for Christmas. Lots of good stuff to start the new year with!

Interesting that Paizo is getting out of (new) pawn sets, but Pinnacle's launching a few new ones. I love them!
Makes sense though for Paizo....they sort of saturated the market with pawns, and now a lot of the market is going virtual. I have boxes....crates, I daresay, of pawns I haven't had to use in almost three years now.

For sure. I hadn't busted out mine since getting two boxes (Bestiary and Villain Codex), but now I'm buying them up like crazy because I've got a nephew turning 7 and I know I'll get use out of them soon!
