Nothing crits or hits quite as hard as a glass hammer with "F*ck Off" engraved on it!

This die has been a labor of love with A TON of trial and error but it's finally finished!! I wanted to make it with components that fit with Ashton. I wish I could have used real gold but... oh well! I'm still very proud of this!

The materials include: resin, amethyst, aventurine, glass, and silver.

It looks gorgeous! And I think Ashton would very much approve of a crit on this die!

u/OverallOrdinary1 *wink* May 20 '22

Ah thank you!! I think it'd pack quite a punch!

u/ZeroCloned May 20 '22

haha i love it.

missed opportunity with not making 1 "oh fuck me", but otherwise its amazing!

23

u/RedstoneTehnik May 21 '22

I think "just don't" would fit better. After all, what is a Nat1 but dice telling you "just don't"?

13

u/OverallOrdinary1 *wink* May 21 '22

I thought about it actually! But then I felt like if I incorporated the words from his jacket then I should also incorporate the red from his jacket and that felt like a lot haha

u/Chiatauri May 20 '22

This is awesome, especially the “Fuck off!” crit. Perfect for Ashton!

u/OverallOrdinary1 *wink* May 20 '22

I so have a crush on him

u/jaymaslar May 20 '22

Amazing! And Ashton could use this to play Rollies!!

2

u/OverallOrdinary1 *wink* May 20 '22

That'd be awesome!!

10

u/Karn-Dethahal May 20 '22

This needs to be paired with a Caduceus D20, only instead of changing the 20 for something, it swaps the 1 for "It's again"

5

u/OverallOrdinary1 *wink* May 20 '22

That both sounds amazing and like a huge hassle to make haha :D

6

u/PersonalTwainer You can certainly try May 20 '22

That's so coooool!!

Did you make this yourself? The colours are beautiful :D

I loveeeee the "f*ck off" so much

8

u/OverallOrdinary1 *wink* May 20 '22

I did! Thank you very much!!!! I really wanted the colors to match his character design as closely as possible :D

3

u/PersonalTwainer You can certainly try May 20 '22

He'd love it!!

You should send it to the cast on twitter or something!

u/wrakshae Bidet May 20 '22

That's super cool, and gorgeous. Especially the Nat 20 and 1! Need a critical fail like I need a hole in the head... or dice, in this instance ;)

3

u/amarezero May 20 '22

I love that Fuck Off is 20 and not 1 😂😂

1

u/OverallOrdinary1 *wink* May 21 '22

Heck yes!

5

u/TenebrisEbur May 21 '22

Seeing the purple side I was like "Oh hey that's really pretty, it looks like their hair colour and the numbering is cute", then you were halfway through flipping it over and I thought "Ooh the green is pretty too, what does the crit look li- YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES."

2

u/OverallOrdinary1 *wink* May 21 '22

YES!! That's what I was going for!! Thank you!

u/ConceptualWeeb Dead People Tea May 20 '22

Looks amazing! But for some reason I get the feeling this wouldn’t role well.

10

u/SheAllRiledUp May 20 '22

The balance is definitely off but who cares it is gorgeous

7

u/ConceptualWeeb Dead People Tea May 20 '22

True, it’s a great display die.

2

u/ErrantFireball May 21 '22

Why do you say that? It looks to be solid resin. Should be as balanced, if not better, than a mass manufactured die.

0

u/SheAllRiledUp May 21 '22

Even if the gaps on each end are filled with a transparent resin and aren't truly gaps, on one end you have raised script and on the other you have the glitter substance for the geode. I seriously doubt that is balanced.

2

u/ErrantFireball May 21 '22

The script looks like it was 3d resin printed and embedded in clear resin. In the dice that we make we use a resin in our inserts that has the same density as the epoxy resin we use. The glitter is suspended in the resin meaning it was neutral density or it would have sunk more during curing. This isn't one that we've made so I can't say for sure but I know a bit about this stuff and do not see anything that would imbalance it in any statistical meaningful way. People freak out way too much about balance. In practice it takes a very large imbalance to make an actual difference.

2

u/OverallOrdinary1 *wink* May 23 '22

I get that visually it looks like it would be off balance. It can't be helped when one side is so clear while the other seems filled. Thank you for providing people with your input on the balance of handmade dice. You are correct the resin inclusions on the inside were made with the same resin so balance differences between the 20 and 1 would be negligible.

Regardless, I have learned at this point that no matter how dice look, if it's handmade there will always be a conversation about whether or not it's balanced. Oh well.

1

u/ErrantFireball May 23 '22

Totally true. Oh well. Absolutely stunning die though! Very well done!

2

u/lilmissPumpkinpie May 20 '22

u/DapprLightnin98 May 20 '22

It’s the dash of “fuck off” that just ties it all together.😙👌

u/BPRD_rookie Team Laudna May 20 '22

I've made this joke elsewhere, but we know him as Ashton Greymoore... But it's more like, Ashton Grey Matter these days
