Top 10 Custom and Unusual Dice Sets for Roleplaying

A nice (or at least complete) set of dice is probably the most important tool you will need in for a roleplaying night. Well, and your imagination. But I guess you can’t just walk around miraculously succeeding at everything you attempt, so apart from strategy you will need some luck, or randomness.


If you roleplay, you probably know how it feels to open your bag (I’ve seen all kinds of awesome bags, they have to be up to the challenge of containing such beautiful objects) and choose your favourite die. There’s a magic to it. I still do all my important rolls with my ever-lasting forever-loved old blue d20. It just does not fail!

Without further introduction, check out some of these one-of-a-kind dice sets.
