August has arrived and with it another Kickstarter roundup. There are many fun and unique Kickstarters running through August. Check them out before they are gone!

Geocentric Light /Metallic RPG Dice

Gecko Elite Studio has created glitter metal dice. With three styles of dice to choose from, these metal dice are fun and a great addition to your collection. The Radiant Light series contains a chunky glitter finish available in three colors; golden yellow, brownish-red, and a dark green. The Treasure Light series is made with the same chunky glitter as the Radiant Light but the colors are mixed together giving a neat shimmery effect. If you are looking for something a little more colorful, try the High-energy Manganese Crystal series. These dice are coated in peacock green glitter and the metal edges of the dice have gone through a high temperature process leaving them multicolored. Also available, and something I am excited to see is the cool light up display box. If you are looking for a unique way to showcase your favorite sets of dice, these boxes may be the way to go! Every tier of pledges including dice will come with a leather drawstring bag to make sure your dice come to you safely.

As the tedium of staying inside continues, you may find yourself running out of motivation or ideas to get things done. With a die for morning, afternoon, and evening, you’ll never be bored.
