Dungeons & Dragons decided to celebrate their 45th anniversary the right way with this amazing Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set. The company partnered up with Level Up Dice for this special set that will go on sale on November 21st for $300. This is basically the set to get for hardcore fans and those who have a special place in their hearts for D&D. You’ll only be able to purchase these from Wizards of the Coast, and no word yet on the quantity of the product or if it will only be around for a short period of time. Here’s a little more info from Dungeons & Dragons on the product.
“When the D&D team realized the sapphire is the traditional anniversary stone for both five years and forty-five years, and that adding a laboratory-created sapphire to a twenty-sided die wouldn’t jeopardize the integrity of a roll, we couldn’t pass up the chance to make something really cool to celebrate the milestones” said Nathan Stewart, VP of the D&D Franchise at Wizards of the Coast. “The team put together a fun product for our fans that includes art and newly updated stats for sapphire dragons, making these classic dragons ready for play in your next D&D session.”
The D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set includes eleven custom-designed aluminum dice from Level Up Dice. Embedded in one of the d20s is a sapphire lovingly grown** by a rock gnome artificer in a charmingly-cluttered workshop. Additionally, each set includes a high-quality dice box and a matching dice tray displaying the ampersand, fifth edition D&D stats and details introducing the sapphire dragon, commemorative stickers, and a sequentially numbered collector’s card confirming the set’s authenticity. Oh, and every die, except that extra-special d20 has an engraved ampersand on the highest number – boosting your D&D cred whenever you roll max damage with that trusty battleaxe!
