Hi, i searched a little on the web and found about this dice set, which look like the old dice manufactured by FASA a long time ago. So i went to BattleShop.com and couldn't seen to find it anywhere on the site, i've already emailed Catalyst about this, but didn't receive an answer. So i ask here, where can i find this new dice set? Thanks in advance.

P.S - Sorry about the English, i'm Brazilian...

The Matrix Dice we released last year, along with the Ares Dice, are out of stock at the moment.

Shrug, take normal dice color in 2, 3, and 4 in the same color as the die, then make 1 one color and 5's and 6's a different color. Voila, you have shadowrun dice.

I saw some players with them at GenCon last year, but by the time I made it to the dealer room, they were sold out. Obviously, this is a lesson, go to the dealer room first and skip GMing the first session of the con.

You need to make the 2s yet a different color as well - for the "rushing it" extended tests that treat 2s as 1s.
So, something like 1 = red, 2 = yellow, 5&6 = green, rest white.

I learned that lesson after failing to purchase a much-desired Shadowrun hoodie. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/frown.gif)

Man, that was the one thing I wanted too, besides SR4A. Shadowrun dice, that is. I was begging people on twitter to nab 'em for me.

Speaking of "Rushing It" where exactly are those rules... I am not able to find them, though I vaguely remember reading them...

Keep the Faith

EDIT: Never Mind... I finally found them... always in the last place you think to look...

If you color the 2s differently, you'll have to color the 6s in another color as well. If you're using edge, rolling a 5 or a 6 is different.

Now we just need two more distinctions to bring 3 and 4 into play! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wobble.gif)

Can you hack your way past Black IC to nab it? A friend of a friend said it's on the same server as Shadows of Latin America, Nigel Findley's notes on the Immortal Elf/Great Dragon/Chocolate Golem conspiracy, and the layout specs for a mass-market NERPS box.

We are hoping to have oodles of them -- in pink!* -- for the summer convention season (and if the stars line up right also for sale online).

* I'm really kidding about the pink. Purple is still viable though.

The "Matrix" dice look to be blue ink on clear plastic in the image, and I recall a mention of the "Ares" dice being red (ink or plastic?).

So is each batch produced in a different color, with a cute name to match ?

Will the past colors be restocked?

Consider this a request for any colors to be available online, as getting to the big cons is all but impossible for me.

We're certainly going to aim to have a larger stock of dice in 2010 -- in 2009, they were a bit of experiment. I think it's safe to say that they were a success, so now, onwards and upwards. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

All honesty, you've got a sale if you do pink dice. The girlfriend would love them.

Adding, I told my girl about the offer of pink dice and she said that we'd probably end up buying two sets.

Just so you know..

Now subtract the number of sets that are going to "mysteriously disappear" into Jennifer's dice bag, and we are at about -392 sales ... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Hey, I need to make up for the pretty Ares dice that I got at GenCon, that ended up at Goodwill in Anchorage, AK. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif)

And, hey, the more people who vote for Pink Dice, the higher the chance I can convince TPTB that there's a (admittedly small) market and get some printed! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
