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 are renders. We are getting samples made currently, based as closely as possible, to this design. The dice will be a translucent black with brown and black vapor inside and gold and aurora glitter throughout, with an emphasis on the gold glitter.
The typeface will also change, but if you'd like an idea of what it looks like, you can check out the Float or Candy Corn sets.
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 Shipping Timeframe: Fall/Winter 2020.
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.
