Norse Foundry Provides The Finest in Heavy Metal Dice

It's game time. You have a cold, highly-caffeinated beverage on your left, a character sheet on your right, and the field of battle is laid out before you. You draw your weapons, but for some reason the barely-there weight of your old, familiar friends feels like it isn't making an impact. Your critical hits are mere whispers, when you wish you could hear thunder! For that, however, you will need the fate hammers forged by Gromur Dagarkin, who does his work deep in the Koltodir Mountains.

Fortunately, for those who don't have time for an epic quest, Norse Foundry has an online store!

Heavy is good. Heavy is reliable.
Facetious tones aside, everyone wants to own at least one set of table breakers. You know, for those special characters for whom nothing else will do. Norse Foundry offers you a variety of different metals, as well as gemstone dice if you'd prefer something a little more organic. No two sets are completely alike (this goes double for the dice made of Tiger Eye), and you can rest assured that you have something truly unique in your arsenal.

But My Table!

Yes, yes, one of the primary advantages to lighter weight, plastic dice is that they don't hurt the table. However, if you want to have your cake and eat it, too (or in this case use your heavy hammers without upsetting your DM), Norse Foundry also provides rolling mats and guards you can use to stop your Dice of Mass Destruction from getting out of hand.

The Nightmare pattern is ideal for DM use.
If you prefer your lightweight dice because you enjoy the artsy flick of the wrist, then more power to you. If you'd prefer to stop rolling your dice like an elf, though, go to Norse Foundry's website, and follow them on Twitter while you're at it.

Speaking of following folks on Twitter, you can find my little tweeting bird right here. Facebook and Tumblr are regularly updated as well. Lastly, if you'd like to see more Improved Initiative then stop by the Literary Mercenary Patreon page to toss a little bread in my jar.
