This is some images of some cool D20 and some related social causes.

http://www.artisandice.com/blog/wounded-warrior-project/



A few months back I was contacted by a gentleman with a unique request. A friend of his had been seriously wounded in Afghanistan. This gentleman had a broke piece of Antique Ivory that belonged to his grandfather and wanted to know if I could use it to make a couple of twenty sided dice for his wounded friend. I happily volunteered my time to try to make something of his broken ivory and ended up getting 3 cracked, but fantastic d20s out of it.

I wanted to do a bit more for his wounded friend so I offered to send along several sets of dice for him to give out to his RPG buddies in the military hospital where he was spending several months recuperating. While they were ecstatic with the offer of awesome dice, they asked if we would instead hold a fund-raiser for the Wounded Warrior Project.

So this is the part where we ask you for money right? Wrong. This is the part where we give yall free dice. Yup FREE. We’re giving out a free set  of four assorted six-sided dice for any purchase over $100. Why are we giving away free dice? Simply put. It’s a bribe. We want you to help us raise as much money as we can for the Wounded Warrior Project. So you get free dice and we’ll give 10% of your total order to the folks over at Wounded Warrior. It’s that simple. Yall get awesome dice, while helping the Wounded Warrior folks get cash to help the with projects like Soldier Ride and Project Odyssey.

So where do you sign up? All you need to do is enter “WWP” in the discount box at checkout before June 23rd. If you’ve spent over $100 we’ll tag on a free set of assorted d6s. If you don’t have $100 to spend, don’t worry, we’ll still send along 10% of your order to the folks at the Wounded Warrior Project.

The Awesome Dice metal 1-sided die is in fact a möbius strip: an object with only one side. If you put your finger on any point on the dice and trace it along the surface, you'll eventually come back to your starting point and will have touched every point on the die.

I like it :D

The old man, grey-haired, braid hanging down.
He is clothed in faded brown robes.
His craggy face is turned up, bathed in moonlight;
He looks for his goddess to smile upon him.

I needed this. We were discussing d1s at KantCon, and someone said a sphere was a d1. This works much better.
P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)
