Hey guys,

I've been looking to replace the dice that come with the base game with some that look a bit nicer.

I was considering these little dice from Chessex:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0098IAZPU/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_img...

Was just wondering if you guys have found any in particular that you've really liked? Also, do you think it makes sense to get smaller dice like this, rather than standard size d6's (I know some attacks have you rolling quite a lot at one time)?

I use 12mm dice like that (except they're faction agnostic, i.e. black) with the dots on the 4, 5, and 6 faces inked in red for quicker identification of Pains and Kills.

Ah, that's a good way to do it too! Would be pretty neat to have each faction with it's own color dice... Probably a bit too expensive for what it is though, haha. Wish those 12mm were sold in smaller quantities, then I might consider it.

I have a friend who got color-coded dice for his core game. Each player gets their pool...

Those are pretty fancy, I must say! I thought those were only available on Kickstarter, can we still get them now?

Now, this is by far and away not a good replacement, but one of the other games I play frequently, Monsterpocalyse, uses unique dice. The basic die, the white die, has the exact odds you'd need to use for combat, as it has 3 blank sides, 2 sides with a special 1 pip (a pain), and 1 side with a special 2 pip (a kill). They're small, they're cheaply made, they're not easy to find nor a good recommendation, but they have the same odds.

The custom dice for this game are some of the best dice issued for a game that I've seen yet.

You're searching for a replacement AND willing to go with pips???

That's a real head scratcher right there.

The red custom dice were a kickstarter exclusive, and are today only available on e-bay or if you find a Petersen Games booth at a convention.

The green custom dice are NOT an exclusive, and will be available from our website if we have enough extras. And of course also on e-bay and our booth at conventions.

You don't?

I thought that was why you made the glow-in-the-dark Great Old Ones.

And I'll be on the lookout for some of the custom dice! They look pretty sweet.
