What’s Cool on Kickstarter

There’s many interesting items to be found on Kickstarter, but these are the coolest ones this week.

Call of Cthulhu Metal Dice
Q-Workshop makes gorgeous dice. This Cthulhu set is another addition to their wonderful line, with all kinds of great mythos details. I really love how crisp the numbers look, especially since I think some of the other details make them a little busy. However, the leech like mouths on every corner of the dice is a cool and creepy detail. If you pledge at $69 you get the full set of metal dice as well as any stretch goals, which include plastic Nyarlathotep dice and dice bags. If you need a really detailed mythos themed dice set, this is your chance to get a really nice set.

“The horror… The horror. And tentacles, and many mouths full of teeth. I’m still shaking when I think about that. But it made me design this – murmured the artist. We just laughed. But then we abruptly stopped laughing when he showed us what was on the screen.

Since then, this image has been tormenting us, and we finally decided that we needed to release it to the world. We do hope that this will keep our Sanity in check, although you can never know…Ladies and gentlemen, behold the CALL OF CTHULHU RPG METAL DICE!”

Dinosaur Dice Towers
I think my favorite part of these dice towers is how the dinosaurs look like they’re just waiting to eat your dice. You have multiple dinosaur options available, and some of them can store your dice as well. If your table needs more dinosaurs (and what table doesn’t?) you should grab one of these dice rollers while you can.

“We prepared 4 various towers: Velociraptor, Triceratops and two different Tyrannosaurus Rexes. Except of being dice towers, three of them have a specific inside space where gamers can hold their dice.

Although all of them are dinosaurs, every tower has different size and its own style. Their overprint is way better than anything we have printed on this material before – you can even feel the texture imitating skin of a dinosaur. What is more, when assembling the Tower, you can choose if you want to have the smooth surface on the outside or do you prefer the one with overprint. Every tower is assembled without glue.”

RPG Coasters 2: Cthulhu
Each of the coasters in this set is specially designed for a character type in your Cthulhu game. You can make sure each player has a coaster that’s relevant to their character as you sit down and play. However, with the rate of death in most mythos games, you might want to get all of the options so you can continue to swap out coasters as the PCs die. The Keeper of course gets their own design. The coasters are really cool, but I really like the combination dice box/dice tray that’s available as an add-on. It has the same great carving as the coasters and is great for a travelling player.

“All of the coasters I make are made from solid hardwood and are about 3.75″ in diameter by a quarter inch thick. They’ve got 1/16″ felt on the bottom to provide a nice cushion and not scratch any of your beautiful tables!”

Cthulhu Mythos Book Badges
I guess enamel pins are a thing now because I’ve seen a lot of them on Kickstarter recently. These ones are really neat though, each features the cover of a Cthulhu Mythos book. My favorite is the one for A King in Yellow. The whole set is only $20 for five pins, and you can show off your love for the Mythos without something as obvious as a Cthulhu pin.

“Welcome to our Kickstarter for a set of soft enamel badges featuring some of the most infamous Cthulhu Mythos books ever read by scholars of elder lore! Show your knowledge of the Mythos by displaying these badges on your person, dice bag, game gear, or even a hat!”
