From Wizards of the Coast:
It’s been five years since Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition launched, and the explosion of D&D’s popularity since then has been a wonder to behold! Now fans can celebrate D&D through the D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set, available directly from Wizards of the Coast. The set commemorates both #5yearsof5e AND forty-five years since D&D’s first publication in 1974.
In honor of the original release year of Dungeons & Dragons, 1974 sets of this custom-crafted treasure will be available to the public for this special occasion.
“When the D&D team realized the sapphire is the traditional anniversary stone for both five years and forty-five years, and that adding a laboratory-created sapphire to a twenty-sided die wouldn’t jeopardize the integrity of a roll, we couldn’t pass up the chance to make something really cool to celebrate the milestones” said Nathan Stewart, VP of the D&D Franchise at Wizards of the Coast. “The team put together a fun product for our fans that includes art and newly updated stats for sapphire dragons, making these classic dragons ready for play in your next D&D session.”
The D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set: Collector’s Limited Edition is a fantastic way to commemorate forty-five years of lasting friendships fueled by stories of imagination and adventure.
