New Year, New Dice?
I need new dice. Not just because I can't find most of our dice at the moment, but because new dice are keen and I'd like to pull together a set that's nicely representative of the Wampus Country aesthetic for the game's I'll be running this year. It's like getting a new workout outfit, or putting sweet rims on your car. (Did I say that right? "Sweet rims?")
My FLGS has dice in tubes, but not much selection. It's hit or miss on in-stock colors for sets, and I don't particularly want to go piecemeal, I want to start with a standard set. So I headed over to Awesome Dice and checked out their stuff and came away pretty darned pleased. Not only did they have a good mix of dice, the prices seemed pretty good as well.
I think I've settled on these babies:
I'm digging the bronze look. And if I go bronze, then I'll probably accessorize with the metallic d6 set as well.
Anyway, in the next couple of weeks I'll certainly be putting in an order over there. But what to use as a dice bag? They sell dice bags at Awesome Dice as well, but I think I'd rather have a homemade one. And I still want to try a cigar-box setup as well.
I know full well that my wife will want new dice, too - she usually goes for purples, but who know what will happen if I show her the crazy 'Carousel' dice.
