Evewynn’s Workshop - Frequently Asked Questions
Are your handmade dice balanced?
Due to the handmade nature of the dice that I craft, I cannot guarantee they are truly balanced. When I test-roll them, in general they seem to be reasonably random in rolls. Your mileage may vary. When in doubt, as with all dice, be sure to ask your DM or GM if they will be accepted for table play.
What to expect
What can I expect with handmade dice?
You can expect to have a special set of dice that are not likely to be seen elsewhere. Everyone who makes dice uses different materials and techniques, but in general, they tend to be pretty unique. I do my best to craft dice that are beautiful and as polished (or as finished) as I can make. Still, being handmade, they will have little things about them that make them unique. There may be slight variances in some corners, pigment or particle distribution, or tool marks. These aren’t necessarily considered flaws, and they give each handcrafted dice character.
How can I best care for my new dice?
As I always say, keep out of heat and direct sunlight for extended periods of time (don’t leave them in a hot car in the summer, etc. ) as I use a variety of materials in crafting and clear-coating dice and there’s a chance not everything will handle such heat well.
I always store my handcrafted dice in a small zip bag and keep that in a soft pouch to keep them safe. I include both when I mail a set of handmade dice to you.
Dice are sturdy but not invincible. I usually roll any dice I have, handcrafted or mass produced, on a small leather rolling tray. There are lots of styles of trays out there and I recommend using one to keep your dice looking nice. If you’re using metal dice, you will want to have a tray as those will chew up a tabletop.
Use a soft cloth to gently wipe away smudges.
What materials do you use to make the dice?
These dice are handmade with a number of collected materials. This includes natural spell components (such as crystals, pebbles, flowers, metals, and such) as well as otherworldly technological discoveries (such as resins, acrylics, colors, and polish of nail). Each spell cast can vary and uses different spell components (ingredients) to cast.
Is there anything I should avoid doing with the dice?
Please do not eat the dice. While they may look delicious, consuming the dice not only dispels any magics cast within or upon them, but it is also unhealthy and unsafe. That’s not cool. Please supervise younglings’ use of the dice, and please do not let any pets, children, younglings, familiars, fellow party members, puppets, or otherworldly creatures consume the dice. Please do not taste the dice either. This will also dispel the magics.
Anything else I should know?
You can put these dice in a Bag Of Holding, as they will not cause a rift in time & space. As noted, I include a set of containment parcel equipment (otherwise known as a zip pouch and a dice bag) with each order of handmade dice. This will help preserve the dice when temporarily storing in a Bag Of Holding.
