Black Lives Are Critical.
What happens when a random Twitter conversation brings together a diverse group of people that are truly passionate about D&D and driven to end racism?
A set of dice that are beautiful and celebratory with a statement.
These beautiful sets have brown and black swirls in a transparent body that looks almost opaque unless it's held against the light due to the mass amount of aurora glitter and gold glitter.
When Iko explained what they wanted, the words Elegant and Space were the two touchstones. After three different rounds of samples, we feel that the design has been nailed perfectly.
The final set will include the following: A 35mm D20 with BLAC on the 20 face and the following dice in standard sizes: 1 x D4, 1 x D6, 1 x D8, 1 x D10, 1 x D%, 1 x D12
Due to manufacturing, all dice will be unique. We're also working on some stellar packaging so you can show these beauties off in style.
*****THIS IS A PRE-ORDER****
We will get these into production after we receive samples.
Expected Production Start Timeframe: Winter 2020/2021
Expected Delivery: Spring 2021
All profits from the sale of the BLAC set will be going to Iko and Chelsea's Charity.
Ice Cream Dice and Matthew Lillard/Beadle & Grimm's will receive none of the profits, now, or ever.
Our goals are to raise money for Chelsea's Charity, which is built on the importance of helping children through art and to help me start a business that allows me to give back and bring more recognition to diverse voices in our communities.
Let's Meet the People Who Brought this Idea and Design to Life
The BLAC dice were created to celebrate the black community through gameplay, fun experiences and critical successes.
We wanted to find a beautiful mix of color and shine to make a unique set of dice that anybody would love to have on their shelves, but which also brings to light a message of utmost importance; Black Lives Are Critical.
Love you guys. Live your best You.

My niece Betsy saw Iko and her sign at a protest march in Dallas and sent me the photo. I immediately fell in love with the message, the sign and the young woman holding it.
