We live a world where plastic rules, where products are not expected to last for more than 6 months, and where there is very little option, minus the use of a sharpie, to make something our own. This is why we’re here, though! We craft because we want to express ourselves and because we want quality, we want the items in our lives to truly mean something.
This is exactly where Dog Might Games stands. You may remember a feature I wrote for them a while back (seen here) where I reviewed their work and artistry, and talked about their unique perspective. Recently this lumberjack/canine company set up a Kickstarter for their most recent creation: The Dragon Sheath.
These pieces are meant to house your various tabletop RPG items, keeping them secure and neat, which is much like the box itself!
The obvious: These are really well made. This is like the blackbox of a dice plane; the magnets holding it closed are incredibly strong but have been placed in a way that makes for easy angle opening.
I actually took my dragon sheath to a tabletop game store here in Manhattan and showed it to the employee to ask him what he thought. I could tell he was ready to be underwhelmed, but as he held it, opened it, and looked it over, he let out a very surprised “This is actually really nice.. REALLY nice. I’ve never seen anything like it.” This store had a so many items I could barely walk through it, and yet they did not have anything like this.
The wood is beautiful and sturdy and the spaces cut out within are perfectly sized for your dice, coins, figures, whatever you want because you get to choose! You also get to choose the wood and the design on both sides. It’s almost as if these guys actually want to give you what you want by giving you custom-made pieces…wait…
I think even Michael Bay himself would have a hard time wanting to blow this thing up. He’d do it, but he’d shed a tear.
I love the variety that is offered with this new piece: from designs to wood choice, to customized interior chambers, it is all here. Whether you’re a seasoned D&D’er, or just looking to break into IRL RPG, these dice sheaths are a beautiful and functional addition to your tabletop munitions.
