I'm thinking of making my own Krakatoa set, but need the rules. If anyone can provide them, or knows where they can be found, please contact me. Thanks in advance!

I am also interested.
How do you plan to make the dice?

I don't think blank docecahedra will be too hard to find. I was just thinking of painting on the pips, and applying a clear coat. A bit of drill work would make cooler pips, but repeating 108 times might be a drag.

Thanks, Cat!

I've gotten most of your files: Basic #2, and Advanced #3 and #4 crapped out. I've been using my computer heavily today, so maybe it's having problems. I'll try again tomorrow, and let you know. But thanks again: I know a lot more than before!

I think it may just be your connection. I downloaded them on my daughter's iMac to test and they downloaded fine.

Much better this time!

Saving the files and printing them gives better results then simply clicking and printing.

Thanks again!

Now to figure out how to arrange the pips...

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

The three yellow sides are adjacent to each other around a single vertex, the four red sides are adjacent to each other around two vertices, and the five blue sides fill the remaining faces.

I second the thanks!

Pola, can you share how you are creating your set? I bought a copy of the current printing last weekend and am now curious how the larger blank d12s we have at Print & Play Games would work. (http://www.printplaygames.com/product/d8-d10-d12-blank-dice)

I will let you know if I get a chance to experiment. These dice are bigger to enable stickering each face. Not sure that would be a good long term solution for this game...

Though EGG changed a few rules, one of which I think significantly for the worse:

Rule change (for the worse) in EGG reprint
