THORS DIE - D6+8 (the eight legs of Odens horse Sleipner).
I am working on my full fractal dice set... Prototypes coming in.
Until I am finished I release Thor's Die.
A bit special with its 6 sides + 8 corner-sides.

All six-sided dice have eight corners.

This DESIGN is unusual, but that part isn't.

:) Sorry if I was unclear, the corners is also sides, with less probability to land on than the 6 main sides.
...so this dice actually has 24 corners... Thank you for pointing it out, I have corrected my text now!
Yeah, it's always hard to find a way to describe complex interactions.

How do you print in steel? A CNC machine?

It is printed with steel powder, infused with bronze and melted together, you can read about it at shapeways if you follow my link^^^

Released on a Thursday/Thor's Day!  I love this, both as a table top RPG vet and a fan of all things Viking.  I like how it looks old, as if it were unearthed from a burial mound.  Are the sides truly balanced?

Thank you Paul!
Glad you got the connection to Tors Day.
The 6 main sides is balanced (less mass in the smaller spheres) the 8 corners isn't, but the letters has very small mass...

the ever so slight imbalance will allow room for the gods to have their say! ;)

Thor will decide! :)
I have a full fractal dice set in the pipeline (been harder to accomplish than I thought).
The Prototypes looks awesome... they will all be very special... :nod:
