Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG Dice Kickstarter

Impact! Miniatures has launched a Kickstarter to produce a full set of dice compatible with the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG.

Back the Kickstarter here.

IM-DCC-RPG-DiceWorking to create a full set of the 14 dice compatible with the DCC RPG in 8 colors (and possibly gem dice) along with D9 and D11.

Goodman Games (www.GoodmanGames.com) has a really well written RPG in an old school style D&D style called Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC for short).  The DCC rulebook, with the insights from Joseph Goodman on how to be a great judge / game master, is worth the price.  It’s a great game, and when incorporating these insights should never result in a Monty Haul situation.

DCC uses an extended dice set with a total of 14 dice in the set.  The dice in the set are D3, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8, D10, D12, D14, D16, D20, D24, D30 and D%10.

Previously we ran a KickStarter which gave Impact! the ability to mass produce a D7 and D14 ( http://kck.st/SSfJg0 ).  Since that KickStarter, Impact! has worked on having a mould made for a D5 but have not had the funds to mass produce it to make it available beyond conventions and one online dice outlet.

While at Gen Con in 2013, we had the following available in our booth: a Chessex D3, Impact!’s D5, D7 and D14, a Dice & Games D16 and a Koplow D24 and D30. It was a mismash of sizes, dice styles and the colors did not match at all. However, it meant that we had the extra 7 dice to create a full DCC set for sale at our booth. This was brought to the attention of Joseph Goodman from Goodman Games who created DCC. He stopped by the booth and we talked dice. A great conversation that led to several emails and then to my excitement – interest from Mr. Goodman for Impact! to create fully color matched affordable dice sets compatible with DCC RPG (with all the dice being about 1″ or less in diameter to make a more playable set). And that is what this KickStarter is about … helping Impact! get the funding we need so we can complete the set of 7 special dice for our store and for Goodman Games to eventually sell with DCC.  This KickStarter is an Impact! initiative, and if things go well may eventually result in our dice being sold by Goodman Games for DCC RPG.

The funding from this KickStarter will give us the means to create moulds for a spherical D16, a d6 with the Roman numeral I, II, III for a D3 as well as our own D24 and D30 so that we can produce full color matched sets for all 14 dice.  In addition, we have received agreement from Chessex to color match our opaque dice to 8 of their colors so that if you already own one of these Chessex sets, you can just pick up the extra 7 dice from this KickStarter to complete your DCC set.
