Was there any reason for picking the colors used for the dice in the game? They don't appear, to me, to be related to theme and everything else seems to be pretty focused on advancing the theme.

Harry uses Fire and Ice? That's what I assumed.

Evil Hat actually do a Winter Knight dice set if you want other Dresden Files themed colours

I know from Twitter that choosing colours that don't match any of the Fate dice already produced was a conscious decision - one I like, because it gives me even more colours of Fate dice to play the Dresden Files RPG with

I don't remember where I read it, but I believe the colors of the dice are based on Bob the skull's eyes - his normal eyes and his eyes when he was Evil Bob. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong though.

For better results with the dices, roll them on romance novels.

This was exactly the thematic reason for the color choices. Well-remembered! (The blues are actually bluish-purple.)

I always figured it was blue for fate and orangey-red for hits.
