The new Forgotten Realms Laeral Silverhand’s Explorer’s Kit is a real treat. It gives Dungeons & Dragons players and DMs 11 dice, a nice felt-lined box for rolling, and some cards full of lore. Plus, a map of the Sword Coast which is always handy. Wizards of the Coast was kind enough to send me a set and it’s great.
First, the dice are very pretty. The blue coloring with silver ink looks fantastic together. The weird thing is how big some of the dice are. The 2d20 that you get are huge! In addition, the 4d6 you receive are slightly bigger than usual. The six-sided dice are the same size as those from the Baldur’s Gate set, but I’m very confused as to the oversized 20-sided dice. All the other dice are standard sizes which really adds to the mystery for me.
