Wiggys original sketch of watchgap fort:
I suggest you look at getting some other software to do what you want to do in the first place – we use Photoshop which is expensive but you can get these for free:
Then you can import the document as you had planned without losing quality.
You could also just start playing and if the players like the setting then buy the map sheets!
Although this dice set is very much intended for Hellrost we are making it more generic as a dice set for any viking style RPG. So we’re not going to change the design of every dice as a custom for Savage Worlds. The wild die is an add on for Savage Worlds players. Although we have a good core of Hellfrost players we need to appeal to a greater audience.
Okay taking further comments on board I’ve gone ahead and made a 3rd iteration of the Viking themed dice so this 3rd set includes more runes!
Again I’m looking for constructive feedback I want to get these dice to be as good as I can get them.
Well Enno – we never say never! But lets see how we get on with the Viking set for Hellfrost. Any other comments gratefully recieved
I’ve been doodling around with the dice design and have another set for you guys an gals to look at:
Its based on the Tiwaz symbol – tried to increse readability of the numbers. Including a more viking style font.
We’ve seen a few people mention Q workshop dice – just so you guys know we are not using q workshop to make these dice.
Their dice are not engraved as deeply as the process we’ll be using. I think it means they can get more detail into their designs. The sample d6’s we had made have deep engraving it also means that tolerences have to be carefully observed so we can’t just shrink things – it would screw up the tolerences.
The symbolism on the dice is based upon norse and viking design and echoes the designs created by me in Hellfrost. Our aim here is to create a dice set which fits snugly into the Hellfrost setting but will also have broader appeal for use in other norse/vikingesque settings. We will be releasing this set with a extra d6 ‘wild die’ which will stand out from the rest of the set just to cater for the SW gang.
The font sizes on the dice are actually larger than the font size in the Hellfrost books!
I will see if we can make the font larger still on the d4 and d20. However we all know that whatever we do it will not match everyone’s expectations.
This is good feedback guys!
I need specifics though are you saying all the numbers or just the d20? Can’t make the numbers too big otherwise it would be just numbers! What’s the point in custom dice with just Numbers?
Just checked the archived forum and found the error – the database needed a clean.
Should be fine now – do a hard refresh if it still gives an error.
