What happens when an oak tree soaks in a swamp for thousands of years? It turns a sinister black as the evil of that dank, fetid water is absorbed into the fibers of the once-mighty oak. This stuff is seriously cool, and it’s older than Methuselah. About 5,000 years ago, a tree fell in a swamp in what would one day become Eastern Russia. And, yes, it made a sound. It was the sound of gamers yet to be born crying out with glee as the second-most common question we get is finally answered with a resounding, “Yes, you can indeed get a set of Ancient Bog Oak polyhedral dice.”
Bog oak is a catchall name for partially fossilized wood. Although most of this wood, as its name implies, is from an oak trees, partially fossilized yew or pine wood is also considered bog oak. Bog oak is made possible by compounds called tannins, an acidic brownish substance; renowned for it’s preservation properties. It has even preserved humans, such as the Tollund Man, or the Elling Woman.
Sean stevens –
Is it possible to buy a single d20 of this wood?
Luke Marchant –
Bottom option; $76.
Are there custom options on the engraving? I would die to have the numbers in some evil looking font, with possibly an ancient evil symbol for the 6 on the d6.

Hi, I’m from Brasil. And wanna know how much cost a complete deixe pach (d20, d10, d12, d6, d4) of this wood. Thanks
Charlie Brumfield –
the fully polyhedral set costs $254.00 and consists of 1d20,1d12,1d10,1d%,1d8,4d6,1d4
Do you have any pictures of these with the numbers on them?
Is there a way to see these numbered?
I’d love to see a picture of the completed, numbered dice before committing to a purchase like this. Unless the numbering and font are custom, of course.
not a gamer at all, looking for the best bday present – he’s been playing pathfinder for many years.
I like the sound and look of this fancy wood and I’m wondering the same questions that are posted above mine.
Can we see pictures of numbers on them?
Can we customize?
This question will show how little I know about gaming… If I choose to buy –
5 standard 6 sided – does this mean that I would be buying 5 dice of the same kind?
I noticed he has several sets of 7 different sided dice.
I can answer the question about the shapes, if it isn’t too late. If he plays Pathfinder, the set you want is the 10 Dice Polyhedral Set @ $254.00.
The 5 six-sided means it would be 5 identical cube shaped dice (like the normal ones everyone is used to.) The 10 polyhedral dice are the ones used in most rpgs with different number of sides.
I agree with Sean stevens–please make this available in d20 singles! I think a lot of people would buy these!
What do these look like with inlay?
All these ppl asking about the inlays and the numbers, but no answer? Why?
I would be very interested in buying these with the Daemon Red Aurora inlays, but spending over $300 on dice is really hard to justify, and without at least a photograph it’s impossible.
Could we at least see them with numbers on them?
Is there any way to have a specific number of these dice crafted? Specifically, I’m looking for 1d20, 2d12, 2d10, 4d6, 2d4 and a large d20. Is this possible?
Does a full polyhedral set (or just a single d20) come with a display case?
I’m thinking of getting a full set inlaid with malachite.

Would love to have a d20 for my husband! Is there any possibility of getting one before Christmas? (I am also eyeing the scotch rock soapstone for him)

Just got a full set of these in the mail. They are amazing.

The dice seem really nice! I wont lie they are more brown than I thought they would be for the ancient bog wood set, definitely felt they would be alot more black.

Bought a full set of these as a Yule gift for my wife. It was about 5 months before they were ready, but they were absolutely worth the weight. Just gorgeous dice, great look and feel to them.
