Greetings, readers! This week, I’m sharing one of my own characters for our character profile showcase week. His name is Ashajontû the Audacious and he was my first-ever Fifth Edition character. Learn more about him below:

Name: Ashajontû Tyûkdzwol D’Oré, called Ashajontû the Audacious, he/him ((pronounced ash-ah-YON-tu • ch-YOOK-tss-VOLL • door-AY).

System: Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Age: 147

Race/Heritage: High Elf

Class: Bard, College of Glamour

Equipment: A recorder, a banjo, a rapier with his name engraved on it, a ring of protection, a signet ring

Appearance: Ashajontû has aqua eyes and light skin with long silver-blond hair. He’s 6 feet tall and very thin. Ashajontû wears a pink tunic with gold accent details, white leggings, high-heeled boots, and a long dramatic cape.

Personality: Ashajontû is lively and enjoys being the centre of attention. He plays the banjo, the recorder, the triangle, and he can sing. He likes to compose songs that inspire his fellow party members, tell stories of their adventures, or simply to persuade other people to give him what he wants. In combat, Ashajontû is a spellcaster whose primary strategy is to draw enemies into some other activity or distraction so that they can’t attack the party. When he’s not adventuring or recovering from his adventures, Ashajontû likes to write songs, eat pastries, and go shopping for the latest fashions.

Goals: Having reclaimed his land, title, and noble status, Ashajontû’s personal goal is now to turn the ruins of his old house into a theatre. With his party, he is attempting to prevent a dreadful villain from unleashing Tiamat and taking over the world.

Most memorable moment: Ashajontû willingly stood trial for war crimes on behalf of his (mostly) deceased family members. He sang twice at his trial, once to prove that he was a bard and would not have access to a wizard spell used to commit a murder, and once to introduce countercharges against his great-uncle who framed him for the murder. He was ultimately successful in getting convicted of his family’s crimes, and cleared of the crimes with which he was personally charged. Ashajontû is in the process of paying reparations and making amends with the people his family hurt. The events of the trial earned Ashajontû the moniker “the audacious.”

Fun fact: Pastries are Ashajontû’s favourite food. He can, and does, eat them for all meals of the day.

Greetings, readers! We hope you’re keeping well. We have a sneak preview of our Descent into the Underworld Kickstarter for you before it goes live on September 7! Check it out below, and sign up to be notified when the campaign goes live.

Choices

In this Kickstarter campaign, you have options! The dice come in 11-piece sets and each one is hand-polished. The dice are made using UV glitter and glow-in-the-dark powder, which produces a dramatic, smoky, nebula-like effect.

The dice are available with soft edges or sharp edges. The soft-edged dice are machine tumbled before being hand-polished, and the sharp-edged dice are all 100% hand-polished with no machines involved to give the cleanest edges possible.

You can also choose whether you’d like your dice to be inked in silver, black, or even uninked.

Dice selection at a glance

These dice have been created specially to tell the story of Moonie the dragon’s final descent into the Underworld. Here is a summary of the story and a quick preview of the dice we have to offer! The dice pictured are the sharp-edged dice, but all sets are available with soft edges as well.

Moonie dice set preview

And here is a peek at Moonie’s set! You will be able to pledge for up to 3 dice sets, with the rest available as add-ons. You’ll also be able to get postcards, a ferryman’s coin, a d20 pendant necklace, playmats, and a beautiful faux-leather carry case for all your dice. See some of those items in our previous blog post.

Follow this blog for updates, and be sure to sign up for Kickstarter launch notifications! See you all on September 7!

Greetings, readers! We hope you’re keeping well. We’re excited to announce our newest Kickstarter, Descent into the Underworld! It’s themed around the story of Moonie the dragon heading to the Underworld to rescue her mother. The dice sets created for this Kickstarter are inspired by the characters and challenges that she faces on her journey.

Her first challenge is to ford the river Styx, then gain the help of Cerbudon. After this, Moonie is confronted by lord of hell who doesn’t want to free her mother from her responsibilities as Guardian of the Dragons. In response, Moonie’s brother Demi comes out of hiding and asks if they can visit Fate to change their mom’s future.

They meet with Fate, who says the future is ever changing. In recognition of this comment from Fate, the Fate set has a liquid core. Fate eventually frees Moonie’s mom, with Demi taking over the role of Guardian of the Dragons.

Take a look at the gorgeous photos of our new dice! We are aiming to fund the first two sets, with the rest of them being unlocked as stretch goals.

We also have special ferryman coins only for early bird backers, as well as bronze and gold versions of the coins as add-ons.

We also have playmats, necklaces, and a special dice binder as add-ons. Also, the “Greetings from Hell” postcard that is available as a stretch goal.

Greetings, readers! We hope you’re well. Today, we’re excited to announce our newest product: the Silver Gemstone Pendant, available for pre-order now! It’s a gorgeous pendant designed by Colette herself and inspired by high fantasy and Celtic art. It’s a hypoallergenic silver necklace with a copper dice encasement pendant plated in silver. The pendant itself comes with a gemstone d20 inside it.

We plan for the gemstone d20 to be a choice of amethyst, green fluorite, or natural fluorite, but are looking into more options. If we find that more become available, we will include and honour those choices. If you’d like to place a pre-order now, please write us a note in the comment box of your order that states which colour of gemstone you’d like, and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Silver Gemstone Pendant

The pendant cage is removable and you can open it to take out the gemstone d20 if you plan to roll it, or if you want to swap it out for a die of another colour to match your look that day. The pendant cage is sized for a standard-sized d20.

Check out this great video of the pendant spinning!

We plan for the first wave of shipments to be out in time for Christmas 2021. Keep checking here for details about this gorgeous product.

In the meantime, check out the ‘Twas Night Before Critmas – d20 Ornaments Kickstarter by Daratum. We’re partnering with Daratum

Twas the Night Before Critmas, and all through the house,
Not a goblin was stirring not even a mouse.
I in my cap, waited with such glee,
For the monsters I’d slay if only I could see.
I rolled all my dice, with a flourishing throw
But to my delight I rolled high, and not low
My tree was decked out with red, white, and black ones
While down below, you could see all the little ones.

Greetings, readers! We are dedicating this week’s post to show off the new d20-inspired holiday ornaments, currently funding on Kickstarter here! We’re showing them off in the summer because you can never be too prepared. We call these our CRITmas baubles because they hang with the 20 facing outwards.

Each ornament is made of a lightweight plastic/resin blend material for a strong and long-lasting decoration! These hardy ornaments weigh in at just under 1.8 oz., and can be dropped without fear of them breaking.
