So after nearly 2 years of on and off again R&D work, we’ve managed to figure out stone dice. The secret was to find materials that we could work with tools we already had. Enter soap stone! Soap stone is cool becuase we can work it with regular wood working tools, and when it turns to dust it magically become baby powder, keeping the minions’ hands soft and supple. Soap stone has many uses from counter tops and fire places to pipes and figurines. My favorite use for soap stone is whiskey stones. That’s right, pop these bad boys in the freezer and give a new meaning to the term “on the rocks”. This particular variety of soap stone is used in hand carving and pipe making so it’s a bit on the soft side.
They will hold up to play, but the tips will turn white as you roll them. We’ve got half a dozen sets of these ready to go. Each set includes 3d20’s is a swanky Figured Black Walnut display case. Why 3 you ask? Because that is the perfect number for keeping my scotch on the rock nice and frosty.
