Artisan Dice says it’s been asked to produce a set of dice made from bone since the day the company started.
“For those that aren’t aware, bone makes for horrible dice. It’s porous, oddly shaped, prone to chipping, and the larger pieces we need to make dice from are hollow and spongy in the middle thanks to that wonderful thing called marrow,” the company says. “So, for the longest time our standard answer was, ‘Nope sorry, we don’t make bone dice.'”
The company overcame the issue by combining bone with urethane resin. In this set, the white parts of the dice are bone from an alligator’s jaw and the colored part is the resin. There are a wide range of colors in the series; this one is called Southern Citrus.
The jawbones come from a gator farm in Louisiana where the animals are raised for meat and leather.
The other set of dice in the Necromancer series (because they’re from dead things — get it?) are made from bison horn.
