Dice Recommendations for Ravenclaws

  • CHX25426  - Opaque Polyhedral Dusty Blue w/ Copper 7-Die Set 
  • CHX27427 - Scarab Polyhedral Royal Blue w/ Gold 7-Die Set 
  • CHX27436 - Vortex Polyhedral Blue w/ Gold 7-Die Set 

My personal favorite for Ravenclaws is the Opaque Dusty Blue w/ Copper - simple, elegant, easy to read, and copper numbers get a little closer to bronze than the gold numbers on the Scarab and Vortex varieties.

Recommendations for Hufflepuffs, Gryffindors and Slytherins

Dice Recommendations for Hufflepuffs

  • CHX25402 - Opaque Polyhedral Yellow w/ Black  7-Die Set 
  • CHX25328 - Speckled Polyhedral Urban Camo 7-Die Set 
  • CHX27438 - Vortex Polyhedral Black w/yellow 7-Die Set

All three of these sets would be excellent choices for Hufflepuff - all three stick to the House colors quite well, and the Vortex dice even manage to invoke some of the stripiness of the badger without abandoning the straightforwardness of the yellow and black.

Recommendations for Gryffindors, Slytherins, and Ravenclaws

Dice Recommendations for Gryffindors

  • CHX25334 - Speckled Polyhedral Golden Strawberry 7-Die Set*
  • CHX27414 - Scarab Polyhedral Scarlet w/ Gold 7-Die Set
  • CHX27434 - Vortex Burgundy w/ Gold 7-Die Set 

Something bold, in red and gold is perfect for a Gryffindor who’s ready to roll the dice and fight bravely. The Scarab and Vortex varieties show here are both excellent examples of Chessex’s expertise in swirling colors together in an appealing way.

Recommendations for Slytherins, Ravenclaws, and Hufflepuffs

*Pictured here is the Ten d10 set of Golden Strawberry, CHX25134. Unfortunately, Chessex no longer makes the Golden Strawberry color.

Fire tornadoes, despite their name, are more closely related to dust devils or waterspouts than to true tornadoes. Though rarely documented, they are relatively common, especially in wildfires. The heat of the fire creates an updraft of warm, rising air that leaves behind a low-pressure region. Air from outside is drawn toward this low-pressure area, gets heated, and rises. As the outside air gets pulled in, any vorticity or rotation it had gets intensified via conservation of angular momentum–the same way a spinning ice skater speeds up when she pulls her arms in. The result is the tightly-spinning vortex at the heart of a fire tornado. (Video credit: C. Fleur; via NatGeo)
