    I wish they would have mentioned that the sapphire D20 has the sapphire sticking out beyond the edge of the dice.. Sure, it makes is nigh impossible to roll a Nat 1, but I want dice I can have pleasure in using fairly.

      Wait sapphire does this mean they finally figured out psionics.

        an embedded saphire? why would you think that would be a good idea? clearly that is going to weight your rolls.

              Honestly, I would drop that much for some really beautiful dice, but these are...blue on silver? One day I will own some aluminum dice, but it will not be these.

                  Precision-milled aluminium anodised dice? Check.
                  99.9% accurate to perfect balance? Check.
                  Lab-grown sapphire? Check.
                  Totally worth the $300. I personally can't afford them but MAN I wish I could.

                      Not the price I expected at the end there. As pretty as they are... no thank you~ especially not when there are other gem and metal dice that are much cheaper.

                        yeah... no. its not that i cant afford it, its that im not even going to encourage spending so much money on a dice set. ever. i have a friend who bought a dice made out of mammoth tusk that cost less, and even then i consider it too much

                            If you pay attention to the video you will notice that it has all the writers autographs in it and aside is a collectors LIMITED dice set that's why is worth 300 is not the dice on is own. If u dont like it just dont buy it.

                              I think they are very cool but $300? Clearly I am not the target audience.

                                Oh wow! Aluminum.... And a synthetic sapphire...? That would be really nice for 100$, but $300? I buy most of what comes out for DnD but really not feeling these.

                                  Man I was so ready to drop 100 maybe 150 for these. But THREE HUNDRED? They’re so pretty but i can’t justify it.

                                      Gem dragons have existed in D&D for almost 40 years.
                                      They were officially in 1e–3e, being included in publications by TSR/WotC.
                                      S&F isn't even the first time they've been published in a 5e product.
                                      "Gem Dragons of Faerûn" was published on DMsGuild by Kobold Press in 2016. It was written, designed, and developed by James Haeck (lead writer for DDB and writer of The Siege of Castle Rend (from Matt's outline) in S&F).

                                    im happy to see a dice set celebrating 15 years but i cant see how they can justify the price, its nice and everything but ive seen dice companies make theyre sets made out of precious stones and cost the same price. love the item but i wouldnt willing drop more that 120$ for this set sorry guys

                                                Most people are more honest about it and say "synthetic" or "lab created".

                                              I would have found a way to justify buying them for myself or my DM as a gift it it was ruby and not sapphire, I'm gonna keep telling myself that.

                                                      I love that the cost of playing D&D ranges from “basically free” to “pay $300 for luxury dice”

                                                        as someone who owns all 4 gargantuan dragons miniatures + the orcus collectors edition miniature, the zariel mini, and many more rare ones like the 3.5 edition aspect of tiamat one, its not too crazy of me to think of buying these, but its just too much for a bunch of aluminum and an unnatural gem. for me, i'd pay even 50$ dollars for the stat block only, but thats not possible unfortunately

                                                          These are nice, but not $300 nice.

                                                            $300 for a set of dice with a fancy rock XD! This is silly. I know the packaging and presentation was meant to mimic a jewelry add, but I didn't think the price would too...

                                                              Very nice set, though $300 is a bit much, albiet not as unrealistically expensive relative to the other dice these folks create. Still, the most I'd be willing to pay for a thing would be the cost of the materials x2 or x3 depending on the labor and level of craftsmanship plus shipping. I'm pretty sure a $10/caret lab sapphire plus the cost of a couple ounces of anodized alluminum multiplied by even 5 given the additional accessories and the need for those who made the dice to turn a profit from those who are then turning around and reselling to us would even approach the price they're asking.

                                                                Regardless, $300 is too much. I just don’t have that kind of money

With lots of different gem dragons. More monsters are getting added to his new book kingdoms and warfare so I’d recommend getting both books and a ton of really cool stuff along with it

Almost as bad as the CR $250 costume jewelry rings. I love D&D and I love Critical Role but these kind of offerings make me feel like you see your fans as nothing but an open wallet for you to dig into.
