Greetings, readers! I was reflecting on my time with Little Dragon Corp the other day and it occurred to me that it’s been a year since I started blogging here, which I thought warranted a post of its own.

I’ve been here for two Kickstarter campaigns (three if you count Gabriel’s dinosaur dice!) and I’ve had the opportunity to visit the brick-and-mortar store in Brampton. I’ve overseen 10 Character Profiles and summarized four studies about dice for the blog.

It has been a really fun journey so far and I am looking forward to the future. My question for you, readers dearest, is: what content would you like to see more of on this blog? It’s mostly updates about what’s happening at Little Dragon Corp, which we love to keep you posted about, but we could always cover more topics.

Please let us know what you would like to see more of in the comments to this post!

Greetings, readers! It’s been about a year since I started playing TTRPGs online because of the pandemic. Though I have adapted well and made plentiful use of the virtual tabletop features (it is SO GOOD to not have to do any math when I roll using a character sheet online!) I do miss rolling physical dice. I took out some of my dice sets the other day just to admire them and it got me thinking about how and why I choose them.

I have 7-piece dice sets in a rainbow of colours and I tend to choose them with specific characters in mind. Whenever I receive dice as a gift, I immediately think, “Oh, this set is perfect for this character!” and then I think of it as that character’s dice set henceforth. I take a number of things into account when I’m putting together a dice palette and I figured I’d share a few of mine with you.

Noctis

Noctis (they/she) is a tabaxi bard and she has black fur and amber eyes. In Noctis’ palette, I’ve included two of Little Dragon Corp’s Hidden Gem dice sets, the amber nebula dice and the ametrine set. Both were first available via the Hidden Gem Kickstarter. I chose both of those sets to reflect the colour of Noctis’ eyes, as well as their fondness for cheese. The black set is for their fur, and I included the bright red set for variety and to evoke the name of their trusted sword, the Blade of Blood.

Aidoann

Aidoann (they/them) is a character from my Star Trek Adventures campaign and they’re a Romulan ensign. Their dice palette includes red and blue dice sets because red and blue are Starfleet uniform colours. The gold ink on the white dice represents the yellow uniform. I chose the turquoise and black marble set because it reminded me of Aidoann’s distinctive teal hair.

Rĕo

Rĕo (they/she/he) is a vampire sorcerer of the Draconic Bloodline. Their dice palette contains cool tones because they are descended from a silver dragon and therefore they have an affinity for cold damage. Two of the sets here are also from the Hidden Gem line, the pearl set and the zircon set. I wanted to roll icy dice whenever I played Rĕo and I love the frosty feel of this palette.

Ashajontû

Ashajontû (he/him) is my high elf bard. The explanation for his palette is much more straightforward: it’s based on the colours of his outfit. He wears pink and gold, so I bought the Little Dragon Corp fuchsia wedding dice specifically with him in mind. There is only one set in Ashajontû’s collection that has silver ink instead of gold, and that set is included because his hair is silver-blond.

Do you choose your dice with the intention of using them for specific characters? Share your thoughts in the comments!

Greetings, readers! We hope you’re doing well these days. We’re in the process of updating the descriptions of each dice set with more information about what it means and what the process of creating it was like. Each set has a story and we can’t wait to share them all with you.

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, we thought we’d share the story behind our collection of wedding dice. When founder Colette’s husband Alex asked her to marry him, they came up with several possible colour themes for the wedding. It was hard for them to decide which theme to use, so Colette turned each one into a dice set: three colours with gold leaf and three colours with silver leaf. Learn more about them below!

Green and gold leaf

The green and gold leaf set is a vibrant green with bronze ink to add warmth. The tablecloths and bridesmaids’ dresses would have been different shades of green, contrasted with gold decorations and displays. The wedding dress would have had a gold-beaded train, glittering with movement.

Fuchsia and gold leaf

The fuchsia and gold leaf set is a rich pink with bronze ink. It is inspired by the fresh flowers that would have been displayed on each table, which is reminiscent of spring.

Peach and gold leaf

The peach and gold set is a warm shade of orange, to go with the fruits and soft textures that would have been present at the wedding. The tablecloths would have been velvet and the dress would’ve been peach and gold too.

Ligth blue and silver leaf

Light Blue & Silver Wedding Dice on a Black Background

The light blue and silver set is an icy blue with silver ink, Drawing on the theme of lights and crystals, the dice are based on the white and silver string lights that would have hung at the wedding. There were also going to be beaded curtains that resembled gems. The wedding dress would have had sequined snowflakes and antique rhinestones to match.

Lilac and silver leaf

The lilac and silver leaf set colour scheme comes from the flower petals and silver streamers that would have been at the wedding. There would have been fragrant bowls of water with floating candles, as well as bouquets of fresh lilacs on each table. In line with the theme, the wedding dress would have had a dyed lilac underskirt with silver embroidered petals.

I was going to have fragrant water bowls with floating candles and bouquets of fresh lilacs on each table.

Teal and silver leaf

The teal and silver leaf set is based on the colour scheme that Alex and Colette ended up choosing for their wedding. The bride’s dress had a white brocade overcoat with a train of white and silver flowers, and a bouquet of white, teal, ad silver flowers with a teal ribbon. The groom wore a teal tie and pocket square, and their son Gabriel wore a teal suit. Silver trees that lit up formed the centrepieces and were positioned on top of glass surfaces to look like a lake. The couple also had a bowl of custom d6s with their initials in cursive font.

Greetings, readers! I hope you’re all staying safe.

It’s been three months exactly since I started blogging for you and I thought it was about time I introduced myself! I’m a writer, editor, model, and amateur voice actor in my mid-20s and I’m based in Toronto. I’ve been living in Canada for the past eight years. Before that, I lived in the UK and I moved here so I could claim my citizenship and experience life in Canada.

I did my undergraduate degree in English Literature and French, and I went on to complete a Master of Journalism degree. Though my background is largely in hard news and reporting, I’ve found that I most enjoy creating tools to help others tell stories through TTRPGs. I’m the author of Lake of Secrets, which is a darker magic fantasy adventure for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition, and I contributed two adventures to the Chilling Tales from the Whispering Wind collection, also for 5e. I also have pieces in the upcoming system-agnostic The Map is not the Territory anthology and the upcoming What a Lovely Adventure LGBT romance book.

I’ve been modelling and voice acting since 2017, appearing in commercials for Milky Way and the Toronto Blue Jays, as well as performing in local fashion shows. I voiced the Whisperer in the point-and-click video game Don’t Wake The Night and am the voice of Cal in the 2021 dating sim The Office Type.

When I’m not blogging for Dragon’s Digest, I’m playing games, eating snacks, and watching anime reruns. Come and say hi over on Twitter and check out my website here!
