Signal Boost! Kickstarter Round Up!

May 9th, 2015 by Legendgerry Comments

“Legendgerry rounds up some of the best things on Kickstarter right now, this time all the projects are fully funded already! Which is usually a good sign, usually.”


Shiny Dice!

Grublin Games have teamed up with Irondrake to create a series metallic dice  of organic design called Terralith.

Terralith are metal RPG dice that have been specifically designed to be totally different from anything else available today. Traditional dice design is based on the Platonic solid (e.g. a D6 is a cube, a D20 is a Icosahedron etc.) which leaves the dice feeling a bit…mechanical, so the design challenge for Terralith was to create something that breaks away from that without compromising randomness.

Each Terralith dice will be cast in metal (Zamak) and will be availble as the full 7 dice set (D4, D6, D8, D10, D100, D12 and D20) as well as individually (for gamers who want more D10s).

The project funded in less than a day and Grublins previous kickstarters have proven them to be quite reliable when it comes to delivery of quality products.

So if you like Shiny dice check it out:


Paper Shooter!

When I was in school firing a paper ball across the class was a common enough past time, PaperShooters™ is what happens when engineers take that idea to a new level, coming in a 124 part assembly kit, PaperShooters™ lets you build a paper pellet firing blaster (which they say won’t hurt if you’re hit with) it also discharges sgells and comes with various different types of camo design.

It’s already fully funded with over 40 days to go, if you like make and do, or shooting things, or both, you might like this.
