I wanted to save this for a milestone, but…what the heck, why not? Let’s have a follower appreciation dice giveaway! ♥ This one will be followers only, for y’all who’ve stuck with me so far. Thank you so very much!

Winner will receive one standard polyset of dice, valued at $15 or under, from anywhere on the internet! Feel free to ask for help picking out a set you know you’ll like. I’ll also pay shipping.

Rules:

  • Must be following me! That’s a given. New followers also count!
  • Do not tag your reblog as “giveaway,” it can lead to the notes getting messed up and no one wants that.
  • Likes and reblogs both count for an entry! You may reblog as many times as you like.
  • You can get a THIRD entry by submitting a picture of your own dice to my blog! (One entry per person this way.)

Knit 20 Sided Dice
This is a knit plush 20 sided dice, which measures roughly 9-12 inches in diameter. When you order, message me and well work out a color scheme. You can choose up to three colors for the sides, two unique colors for the 1 and 20 sides, and a color for the stitchery. This die is for decoration, and will not be accurate for rolling. When you order, I will send you an confirmation message giving you a more exact time for shipping. As I am a student, my availability to make your item will vary. If you want a design not listed in my shop, please feel free to contact me, as I will gladly make other designs based upon your preferences

Hi everyone! I decided to start a tumblr blog for my etsy shop to hopefully try to get some extra views!

Today I’m going to promote my knit plush D20! It’s so squishable, it makes for a perfect tabletop decoration!

Our Festival Games

100gil Kingyo-sukui Booth ( Goldfish Scooping ) : “Each person plays individually. The basic rule is that the player scoops copperfish from a pool with a paper scooper called a "poi” and puts them into a bowl with the poi. This game requires care and speed as the poi can tear easily. The game is over when the poi is completely broken or incapable of scooping properly.“

Player will pay the booth runner then /random to see what happens, RP it out however you like!:

  • If Random is 499 and under their scoop breaks.
  • If Random is 500-799 they win a Copperfish, their scoop breaks.
  • If Random is 800-899 they win a Copperfish, their scoop DOES NOT break and can go again.
  • If Random is 900+ they win a Coral Butterfly, their scoop DOES NOT break and  can go again.

This Booth will also sell Tier 1 Aquariums while Supplies last at 10,000gil (Much cheaper than current Market Board Price) for you to put your fishies in!

100gil Chō-Han Bakuchi Booth ( Even Odd Gambling ) : "The game uses two standard dice, which are shaken in a bamboo cup or bowl by a dealer. The cup is then overturned onto the floor. Players then place their wagers on whether the sum total of numbers showing on the two dice will be "Chō” (even) or “Han” (odd). The dealer then removes the cup, displaying the dice. The winners collect their money.“

I like dice collecting. Theyre generally inexpensive but pretty; sometimes you’ll find artisan ones but its a little more uncommon. If there’s someone in your life who’s thoughtful and goes to the right stores or conventions, they can just pick you up one or two, just ‘cause, no big deal. There are no rules, no weird collector hierarchies. Just you buying mildly over-priced pieces of plastic or metal. Then you get to put them in jars and stare at them…buy or make fun bags for them…play with them in your pocket…show up to d&d games with a new set of dice every time. Its good fun.
