METAL DND DICE
In recent years, dice companies and collectors alike have branched out from the traditional plastic and acrylic dice sets. DND Dice have a wide variety of options, so long as they have a proper balance. Probably the most popular option is metal dice, for everything from the awesome appearance to their sturdy and impressive look. The heavy sound they make when you roll them doesn’t hurt, either.
Deep within the mountain, far below the stunning craftsmanship of grand arches and glowing runes, lie to immaculate forges of the Mountain Dwarves. These renowned craftsman are at the forefront of quality metalwork, mixing what is taken from their mines, etching out gems and mixing metals, well accustomed to the heat of their forges. The products of their efforts, blades and armor and jewelry of all kinds, will be sent around the world, or provided to the dwarves’ much-feared military forces. With the excess of their working materials, many craftsmen make sets of dice - little tools of fate and luck, which will fit in the palms and pockets of travelers and journeymen throughout the continents, rolling on tavern tables and city streets, a piece of legendary dwarven craftsmanship that fits wherever you can stick them.
There are several styles and options for metal tabletop dice. Most are cast from zinc alloy, but there are plenty available in various metals, and even more colors amongst those.
Maybe you’re looking for a set fit for a golden dragon’s hoard. Maybe you’re looking for a fantastic display set that you can show off to all of your friends. Maybe you’re looking to reward a particularly good party with something that they can find in-game, and keep in real life!
Metal dice have a fun, fantasy look that reminds players of dragons and dwarves, ancient forges and blacksmiths’ tools. It makes sense that, in a medieval fantasy world, or a Victorian steampunk world, or even a futuristic sci-fi one, you’d find the varieties of dice that you locate among metal options.
Stylish and Sturdy
While it may be tempting to look for real golden dice, or real silver or copper, it may be wise to keep in mind the real properties of these metals. Not only can they be heavy, but they can also be malleable and soft - the interesting combinations that occur in nature - not at all good for rolling without damages to either your table or your dice. Zinc, steel, or other premium metal dice are equally fantastic-looking, and hold up to time and use much better.
Metal dice are sturdy, heavyweight options for your rpg, that won’t roll off your table so easily.
Plenty of D&D races and creatures have an affinity for metal, and if you’re looking for a set of character dice, metal dice are an easy way to put lots of style and flavor into your chosen collection or set.
Dwarves are the traditional metal-lovers, blacksmiths, and forgers of fantasy worlds. For a dwarven character, try a solid-color, rustic set like Critical Copper, that resembles the raw ore that this race so loves.
Even if they aren’t Metallic themselves, dragons are known for their love of all things shiny and valuable. If you’re looking to start a hoard fit for a dragon, almost any metal set works extremely well, but flashy, expensive-looking sets like Mana Splash or Royal Rollers are extra perfect.
The fae may have an aversion to steel, iron, and other mixed metals, but they certainly fit the look of sparkle and shine that you can capture well in a set of metal dice. For a faerie character, or a character beholden to one (like a warlock or a sorcerer), try a set like Druidic Sparkle or Prismatic Steel to get the shifting, glamorous look.
Warforged tend to have a practical, sturdy look, although you can spruce them up with creative additions and personal touches. For a warforged character, try a set like Demon’s Blood.
While Gnomes may not be the first to jump to mind for a metallic look, this race of burrowers and tricksters is well-known for its tinkerers and crafters - for which an affinity for metal is necessary. For a Gnomish look, try something colorful and fun, like Bubblegum Alloy or Prismatic Vitae.
