Review: Hrothgar's Hoard Bard Magnetic Dice Box

Review: Hrothgar’s Hoard Bard Magnetic Dice Box

Metal dice are my RPG weapons of choice, specifically the Dwarven Metal series from Crystal Caste.  Metal dice roll smoothly without bouncing across a table like a Chihuahua on meth and lend a certain level of posh to my gaming activities.  A major downside is they damage soft surfaces if thrown with any aggression or […]
