If you can stand the sound of the dead creaking and grinding bone against bone as you and your friends face down the horrors of the night, then these dice are perfect for your game.

These dice are a little larger than traditional dice sizes, so they might not fit in smaller dice bags or storage boxes so keep that in mind if you have a specific carrying case for your dice. If you just have a bag then you’re good to go.

  • Seven eyes to watch your foes
  • Intimidate your players as the DM by letting them know the dangerous dice are out

Your torch has been slowly dwindling and in the dark, you can make out a pair of eyes fixed on you. Then a few more open, almost forming an arch staring at you. In the dark, as the last sputters of the flame of your torch die out, you see your reflection in the massive single eye watching you from the dark.

This set of resin dice all feature an eye staring back at you as you make your dice rolls, watching you and judging you on your actions. With a set of seven eyes watching all your movements while you play, you’ll never be able to shake that feeling that someone’s watching you.
