These don't have standard numbers or dots, but look much more fantastic with their innovative language of bone markings.
Bone Origins are our first set of dice created by Fablestone Dice, and are a stunning forward step for tabletop games.
The dice don't have any standard numbers or dot patterns, and are both beautiful and intriguing with their innovative language of bone markings.
As easy to use and read as a typical dice, but more enjoyable.
The Bone Origins dice is super easy to use, and can be used in place of a regular dice.
Just add up the value of the bones using the language of bones:
(noun.) Dot bone /dot/: worth one.
(noun.) Long bone /long/: worth two.
For example: 2 long bones and a dot bone = 2 + 2 + 1 = 5.
I designed the Bone Origins dice to be a more immersive dice.
For myself, the typical patterns of dots or numerical 0 - 9s on dice look too modern and contemporary to be a part of the alternative worlds in which tabletop games are often set. So, I set out to create a dice that used it's very own language, and drew upon only elements that would be at home in a fantasy setting unlike our own world.
The Bone Origins dice was born.
A dice that not only looked awesome, but could be something perhaps discovered by your character in the dangerous depths of a long-forgotten dungeon, carried around in their pocket as a good luck charm, but also usable by you - the player - to decide their fate. A dice for all worlds.
With the design ready, we launched our project on Kickstarter. And with the amazing support of all of our incredible backers, the project was a huge success and brought the dice into its first small production run. We subsequently launched another successful project to expand the Bone Origins set to polyhedral dice.
The support of our Kickstarter backers is truly awesome, and I am so grateful to each and every one of them for making the Bone Origins dice a reality.
With both our Kickstarter projects successfully fulfilled, all the Bone Origins dice are now available to order from our website today.

Just like a curious item found in a dungeon, the Bone Origins language has many hidden secrets.
The d6 dice, for example, can be used as a d3 or flipped as a coin by reading the bones differently.
To read the dice as a d3, count the bones with all bones worth one:
(noun.) Any bone /any/: worth one.
To use the dice as a coin, the dot is 'heads' and other sides are 'tails':
(noun.) Dot bone /dot/: heads.
(noun.) No dot bone /no-dot/: tails.
