These Scotch Rock d20s are crafted from black architectural-grade soapstone. Which gives these dice a dark charcoal coloration that makes for easily read numbers thanks to high-contrast engraving. Soapstone can be worked with regular wood working tools, and when it turns to dust it magically becomes baby powder, keeping the minions’ hands soft and supple. The Architectural-grade soapstone used in this run has a much lower talc content than the artist-grade stone we used in the original Scotch Rock d20s, and thus makes for a much more durable die.
Soapstone has many uses from countertops and fireplaces to pipes and figurines. My favorite use for soapstone is whiskey stones. That’s right: pop these bad boys in the freezer and give a new meaning to the term “on the rocks”.
CARE AND KEEPING OF YOUR SCOTCH ROCKS: soapstone has a tendency to get a powdered appearance when it dries out. Occasionally wetting the dice with mineral oil will help to maintain the black lustrous appearance. If you intend to roll these, it is best to use a padded surface.
