GM’s Day Contest: Win a Set of Solid Metal Dice

Posted By Martin Ralya On March 4, 2009 @ 2:58 am In Gnome Gnews | Comments Disabled

Happy GM’s Day! As part of Gnome Stew’s March 4th blitz, we’re holding our third contest.

We thought, “What does every GM need?” And the answer was “A set of badass metal dice.”

The Prize

Specifically, a set of 16mm solid metal polyhedral dice with a brushed steel finish from Crystal Caste.

Crystal Caste makes great dice, and these puppies are $45 — they’re not your grandpa’s worn, un-inked plastic nuggets.

Sure, they’re called “Dwarven Stones” — but it’s a little-known fact that dwarves actually can’t forge for shit. These are Gnomish Stones, my friend.

And they’re dead sexy:

How to Enter

We like to make our contests easy to enter — all you have to do is comment on this article, and you’ll be entered to win.

To comment, you’ll need to have a Gnome Stew account. If you don’t already have one, you can register here.

One entry per person, and as always Gnome Stew authors are not eligible to win. You’re welcome to comment more than once, but only the first one will count.

Winning

This contest will end at 7:15 am Mountain time on Tuesday, March 10th. The winner will be chosen at random, and we’ll announce the proud owner of these dice in a separate article.

The lucky winner will be contacted by email, so make sure your Gnome Stew account is tied to your actual email address.

That’s all there is to it. We wish everyone who enters the best of luck, and we can’t wait to give away this set of dice!

I like free stuff. Especially free dice. Happy GM’s Day.
I’m assuming that if you’ll ship dice Down Under that you’ll ship them to Canada?

#18 Comment By Diaghilev On March 4, 2009 @ 7:02 am

To my GMs: Thanks Mike and Tom. You made high school amazing.

#19 Comment By Lydian Coda On March 4, 2009 @ 7:13 am

Very nice. Small and solid, like a Gnome!

#20 Comment By Mask On March 4, 2009 @ 7:14 am

Very nice to see that people do continue to propose interesting and fresh point of views about RPG. Keep Gnome Stew going !

And the dice are nice, not as much as mice dice but indeed as cool as ice.

Wow, I do need some rest. ;)

#21 Comment By landaras On March 4, 2009 @ 7:21 am

This was sufficient incentive for me to create an account (as opposed to simply reading the main RSS feed).

Happy GM Day!

#22 Comment By DarthKrzysztof On March 4, 2009 @ 7:22 am

Yes, I would like some of those. I mostly DM; it’s justified.

#65 Comment By thebrownshow On March 4, 2009 @ 8:55 am

Are they lead? They’d go great with my asbestos character sheet.

#79 Comment By PatrickWR On March 4, 2009 @ 9:35 am

I once rolled a set of Dwarven Stones on my friend’s glass coffee table and cracked it. I would like to replicate that again.

#80 Comment By manzabar On March 4, 2009 @ 9:35 am

Shiny! And being made of metal means they’ll hurt more when I throw them across the table at my punning players.

#81 Comment By reedu21 On March 4, 2009 @ 9:38 am

Yes, I would like to take those shiny baubles from your monstrous gnomish hands. Rawr

#82 Comment By MightyHunter On March 4, 2009 @ 9:38 am

Who doesn’t want a awesome set of metal dice? Communists, that’s who.

Clearly, I’m not a Communist. :D

#83 Comment By scotticusPrime On March 4, 2009 @ 9:44 am

This comment is being placed solely to enter the contest, although this is an excellent site that I read almost every day.

#84 Comment By Alphabet On March 4, 2009 @ 9:45 am

Those are some killer dice. I wouldn’t mind putting a few dents in our game table with them!

#85 Comment By craytonc On March 4, 2009 @ 9:47 am

Not only are they kick butt dice, but they make awesome 1D2 Improvised Throwing Weapons!

#86 Comment By henrix On March 4, 2009 @ 9:48 am

I’ve wanted some solid dice to throw at my players for a while!

#107 Comment By Karizma On March 4, 2009 @ 10:30 am

If I comment about how I’m too cool to follow the crowd and join this lottery, am I still in? Please?

#108 Comment By Faldwin On March 4, 2009 @ 10:31 am

I wish I had something cool to say.

See, the brilliant thing about these dice is that not only do they look cool, but they can be used as projectile weapons against excessive metagamers. :D

#115 Comment By Kverky On March 4, 2009 @ 10:48 am

Had to re-register with my active email. Hope it pays :P

#116 Comment By GamerChick On March 4, 2009 @ 10:54 am

I love the Crystal Caste dice. They all hate me (dice are cursed as soon as I touch them) but I love ‘em nonetheless.

#117 Comment By mundusor On March 4, 2009 @ 10:55 am

O metal dice,

You are so shiny, and so nice!

Shiny metals! Here’s to hoping I roll a 20 for this contest.

I just came across this site a few months back and have had it bookmarked ever since….keep up the great articles.

Oh, and pick my name for the contest! ;)

#121 Comment By kudakeru On March 4, 2009 @ 11:03 am

These make for some rad dice…even if they are “dwarf stones”. Ew.

#122 Comment By VruNix On March 4, 2009 @ 11:06 am

I’m just starting as a DM, and haven’t even a full set of dice… this would be amazing!

#123 Comment By philofthefuture On March 4, 2009 @ 11:07 am

#128 Comment By Lord Inar On March 4, 2009 @ 11:16 am

Winner chosen at random? hmmm…. I wonder if you’ll use the dice themselves to determine the winner. Now wouldn’t that be neat?

BTW, that crack about dwarves was WAAAY out of line!

Thanks!

#129 Comment By Airk On March 4, 2009 @ 11:17 am

Those there are some saucy dice. I’m in. ;)

#139 Comment By Lee Hanna On March 4, 2009 @ 11:32 am

Yes, I will even take up DMing again with some new dice! I could run Serenity, which would keep the 12-sider from getting lonely.

#140 Comment By Tony Graham On March 4, 2009 @ 11:32 am

I shall roll them upon my keyboard to see what appears upon the screen.

#141 Comment By MzLaydeeG On March 4, 2009 @ 11:34 am

I know someone who happens to be a big fan of Dungeons and Dragons, and I know that this person would be extremely happy and ecstatic if they won these beautiful dice.
Hopefully, I can make this person happy with these dice! :)
GL to everyone else as well.

#142 Comment By brcarl On March 4, 2009 @ 11:38 am

As the illustrious holder the title, “Worst Guess on the Number of Dice in the Big Pile,” I feel I must enter myself into this contest in a sorry attempt to redeem myself.

Never mind this one is all luck. (Good for me, I guess.)

#143 Comment By balrog62 On March 4, 2009 @ 11:44 am

Great contest. Perfect way to memorialize the Great Gygax.

It’s been a year…miss you, Gary.

#144 Comment By JoeGun On March 4, 2009 @ 11:44 am

These Dice are awesome! I would love to add them to the GM arsonel. My players are sick of dealing with “Black Death” ( an old paranoia black die that seems to roll 20s way more often then any other number! ).

#145 Comment By Filamena On March 4, 2009 @ 11:50 am

I’d love a free set of dice.

I’m a GM and freelancer, and I love this blog!

#146 Comment By trimeta On March 4, 2009 @ 11:57 am

Crystal Caste make some pretty awesome dice; for mundane sets, I tend to prefer Chessex, but for more exotic sets made of (for example) solid steel, Crystal Caste is the best.

#147 Comment By farfromunique On March 4, 2009 @ 12:00 pm

I already have a metal dice bag (Chain mail; handmade by a friend), so I should really have a set of metal dice.

#148 Comment By drscott46 On March 4, 2009 @ 12:08 pm

Metal dice? I’ve got quite a few, but no metal ones. On a completely unrelated note, this blog is great.

#149 Comment By CommiePuddin On March 4, 2009 @ 12:09 pm

Recent lurker, first time poster. My brother keeps trying to get me back into playing after a three-year absence (and an eight-year or so break from GMing).

Hopefully I get a chance to actually contribute in the future.

#150 Comment By ski309 On March 4, 2009 @ 12:17 pm

I’m total down for some metal dice!

#151 Comment By rkmase On March 4, 2009 @ 12:20 pm

Me! pick me!

#152 Comment By Elora On March 4, 2009 @ 12:22 pm

Shiny!! :-)

My blood-red GM dice have served me well, but I’m sure they won’t mind sharing the limelight with some awesome metal dice. Cool!

#153 Comment By wink On March 4, 2009 @ 12:29 pm

Happy GM day!

#154 Comment By scrumpy7 On March 4, 2009 @ 12:31 pm

A good excuse to stop lurking and register!

#155 Comment By riel On March 4, 2009 @ 12:45 pm

I found this site only a couple of months ago, but it’s been a daily hit for me since then. Now you say I have a chance for loot here, too? How could my life get better?

#156 Comment By Tonberry On March 4, 2009 @ 12:56 pm

I will demand tribute for GameMaster Day on Saturday! (when we play).
All of those who oppose will be pummeled by shiny metal dice. Steel!!!! Steel is for swords and Gnomish Hook Hammers. Let’s see some dice made from Tungsten, gaming table beware.

#165 Comment By skravelle On March 4, 2009 @ 1:36 pm

New Dice! I love shiny things, especially geeky shiny things.

#166 Comment By LesInk On March 4, 2009 @ 1:36 pm

Metal dice would make a good foundation for any dice stack

#260 Comment By AceDrummer On March 5, 2009 @ 3:36 pm

Metal dice would off-set my crystal dice nicely. And they would be an excellent herald of the return of the GNOME to his or her rightful place in the party.

#261 Comment By NiallNai On March 5, 2009 @ 4:22 pm

Boy, I bet those could take an eye out.

I’ve always wanted an account so as to be able to comment. The chance to score some Gnomish Stones was great motivation.

#305 Comment By Rock3r_Chick On March 7, 2009 @ 6:37 pm

It would be really cool to be able to pull those out when I GM … make everything else dead jealous!!!!!!

#306 Comment By oohshiny77 On March 7, 2009 @ 7:29 pm

Very nice, I’d probably get distracted every time I roll, though ^_^;;

#307 Comment By afstanton On March 7, 2009 @ 8:49 pm

The last time I had metal dice of any sort was back in the 80′s. Very thin copper over cheap plastic that somehow wound up peeling. Corroded just by handling them.

It would be nice to have some quality metal dice.

Thanks. :)

#308 Comment By Randall Jhen On March 7, 2009 @ 8:49 pm

Shiny dice look good in hoard

#316 Comment By penguin133 On March 8, 2009 @ 3:05 pm

Extremely neat! I already have loads of dice, but metal ones are supercool; my Games club will be so jealous it hurts. I might even volunteer to run a game, even if I am a stick in the mud 1e merchant!

#317 Comment By Tamarantha On March 8, 2009 @ 3:34 pm

These would look great with my amethyst dice! I probably shouldn’t keep them in the same bag or I’ll end up with a spell component (ground amethyst) and some metal dice : 0 )

#318 Comment By norinrad On March 8, 2009 @ 3:43 pm

Free Dice!!!

Sign me up! I love Crystal Caste dice! They’ll go great with my two hematite sets, my Heavy Metal d20 and my numerous other Crystal dice. You know what they say. You can NEVER have enough dice. Especially metal dice.

We love your site as much as we love dice! You know what they say about gnomes after all. You can never have enough gnomes for they are crunchy and tasty with ketchup. Or is that dragons?

#319 Comment By Shlabam On March 8, 2009 @ 3:58 pm

I would love a set of these Dice. I’ve been looking at them for a long time (it’s tough to decide between brushed steel and Bronze, I”m leaning toward Bronze) and intend to buy some. Winning them is even better.

#331 Comment By Mordyan On March 9, 2009 @ 1:46 pm

One of my players has a set. They are so badass that they ding the table when you roll. We had to get a rolling mat just for these dice.

#332 Comment By Dexter Drake On March 9, 2009 @ 2:34 pm
