I used to carry far fewer dice with me, but as I started GMing Blade & Crown more, I found that I needed multiple sets of things: my personal dice; glass beads; and ‘loaner dice’ that I could lend to players who didn’t happen to have a handful of D10s and a D12. In the dealers’ room at Convergence one year, I bought a nice big purple bag; it soon became my main dice bag.
It’s quite large: it’d probably hold a couple hundred dice, if that were all I wanted to keep in it. The drawstrings are nice and heavy, apparently cotton, with wooden aglet-things at the ends. The grommets seem quite strong.The bag is made of suede leather, which makes it very tough. The finish, however, isn’t ideal; it picks up dust and crumbs very easily. Since I keep it in my daily-use messenger bag, it attracts a constant stream of schmutz. So were I to look again, I’d probably want a different material. Leather’s good, but not this kind of leather.
The strings, being quite thick, also don’t stay closed very well. The bags requires double-knotting to stay tied up. A slight annoyance, that’s all.
It’s a very trusty bag, overall, and I’m glad to have it. I suppose I should’ve kept the name of the dealer! But they’d probably be easy to find again at Convergence.
