Pyre Studio is delighted to announce that their latest project has gone live on Kickstarter. Encounter Dice is a range of dice sets designed to bring a bit more colour and flexibility to your roleplaying sessions. Each of the six sides has full colour artwork depicting a character, locale, monster or item commonly found in the fantasy genre.

Their first offering is the NPC Pack. These six dice give you plenty of variation when coming up with a NPC for your game. They can also be used for quick character generation. The dice included in this pack are Race, Class, Alignment, Armour, Weaponry and Loot. Full details of these dice can be found on the Kickstarter.

They have further sets planned and currently the total is 94 dice spread across various set some of which are listed below:

  • NPC Expansions: Four dice specific to Elves, Dwarves, Halflings, Humans or Demi-Races.
  • Dungeon Designer: Nine dice giving you everything you need to create and populate a dungeon very quickly.
  • Adventure Packs: These packs of Nine dice allow GM’s to create instant adventures tailored to mountainous, hills, urban, forest and coastal terrain types.
  • Spell Dice: A set of nine dice to designed to both randomise and speed up NPC and enemy spell casting.
  • Critical Hit: Two sets of four dice that depict fatal injuries on make believe monsters from decapitation to death touch and from fiery death to transmogrification.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
