As I’ve mentioned in my last post, I’ve recently returned to the world of Dungeons & Dragons. I’m about half way through the latest story, Storm Kings Thunder with a fantastic group of people who are part of my Adventurers League group. If you’re on the fence about playing, I highly recommend it. It’s never been easier to get started, and the 5th edition rules are the best they’ve made so far (In my not so humble opinion). So of course, each week I bring my gear with me. Players Handbook. Character sheets. And of course, my dice. And since I’ve been playing for a LONG time, I’ve managed to pick up more than a couple sets. So when deciding what I was going to make next for my nerd crafts, I made the call to make a brand new dice bag.
Now if you’ve been watching my nerdcrafts for a while, you’ll know that I’ve made a few dice bags already. The first was a bag to hold all my small dice bags and the second was based on Evil Mad Scientist’s D20 pattern. The first one was simply too simple for what I wanted. It had a draw string, but I really wanted a zipper. The second has a zipper, but the pattern wasn’t exactly what I had in mind, and is generally a very challenging piece to put together.
I feel this latest dice bag really hits that sweet spot between being too simple, and too complex. It looks great, stays flat and isn’t too crazy to put together. Hopefully you’ll feel the same!
