Late with this, but so excited for it. I feel like I need a tag for dice from Kickstarter. Probably going to go ahead and add that, since I’ve got more coming up later in the year.

These guys are the Metallic Dice Games Icy Everglades Unicorn dice, plus a Kickstarter exclusive logo d6. Now, these dice combine three things that I’m starting to find I really like in dice sets. They’ve got a fantastic vibrant green color that’s slightly muted by the acrylic and the sparklies. The sparkling bits are super fine and show up from just about any angle on their sides, but the color reflects differently depending on which side you’re looking at. And, the semi-translucent aspect of them with the swirls of green and the clear acrylic makes for some really fantastic play of light and color peak through makes each dice seem more suffused with color than the swirls would normally afford them.

They also feel really nice. The numbers are engraved reasonably deeply and the paint job is, largely, fantastic. The set is bright and easily readable and honestly just looks really nice.

Now, another bonus from the clear acrylic is that it’s easy to see that there aren’t any bubbles to throw off the balance. And the set does roll fantastically. They feel good in the hand too.

So, this is decidedly a set that I’m a fan of. I’m actually planning on getting a couple more of the Unicorn sets later on because of how much I like these. The only real question I’m left with is whether I’m going to use them for a druid or a cleric. Dual classing is always an option, right?
