Tonight I went looking for dice to give away Shire Con next month. I gave away a set for the best death at Gary Con this past March and I'm thinking about giving a set to each player at my Swords & Wizardry Light session. So a shopping I went at Amazon.
Below are some of my possibles that I looked at as well as the one dice I decided on. I left commentary with each. You may find you like something that I wasn't fully satisfied with. Then i found glow in the dark dice. Oh, and a metal set I simply must own. They will match my chainmail dice bag perfectly :)
