1- Do all monsters/unit dice have the same rarity?
When I buy a pack are all monsters equal rarity? Or are there some that are less likely to show up? I get the impression they are all the same, which would be good, but I just wanted to be clear.

2- In the rules it talks about King Dice for each of the first five sides, but these don't seem to be available in the store.
Are there any plans to release these dice as a set? Or perhaps even make versions of them for all the other sides?

3- Is there any possibility of selling more individual dice like you do for the dragons or some of the promotionals, so it would be possible to get particular dice there were needed?

Thank you.

There is only one Kings' Die. It is no longer in production. We have no plans to make more at this time. See this topic: http://sfr-inc.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=3765

No. SFR sells packaged dice sets that are random for the most part. There are a number of secondary markets for individual dice. There is also a section of this forum set aside just to setup trades (no selling!).

Oh cool thanks for that. I thought some of those questions may have been asked before but I would have had no idea where to find the answers.

The rarity on the scalders nad frost wings kinda seems screwed up. It seems to limit the different ways people can play with those factions.
I would have prefered a completley flat rarity for the same types of dice, but it is what it is.

So is that why the promo versions with different colours vary in price?
Because more are produced in each batch?

More because some of those promos were made 12 years ago, and some only a couple of years ago. Prices for dice have not gone down....

And some are simply batches that had some problems. See this topic: http://sfr-inc.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=2932

Looking at the rarities, it seems like TSR kinda spoiled the later sides.
Monsters are cool but I can live with them being harder to get, but for the basic D6's that make up the sides seems unfair.
If you want to use magic with those sides you basically have no chance of getting the rare wizards. 3% is so low it seems to not even be worth chasing.
You'd need 30 packs to be likely to get one.

I agree.

We've done several 'polls' with the players over whether we should 'fix' the rarity of those two races or not and the answer has always been to leave it as it is and produce something new. The cost to fix a few existing dice is close to what a new race would be. So that is what we have continued to do.

I would vote to redo those ones myself, but I'm a completionist.
The idea of having a side that doesn't work right just irks me!
IRKS I SAY!

But its not the end of the world.
Those sides can still be played, but if you want to play them at a very high level you will struggle. For casual play they are fine.

Something funny.

Years ago I got my first pack of Swamp Stalkers and (havingt seen the awesome fireshadow) I was expecting a pretty strong monster.
But what I got was some goofy toad thing with only one SAI and a random mix of abilities that made it totally unrealiable.
As a kid I was pretty disappointed that my snake mutants had such a lame beasty. I opened some more later and got some better monsters, so that made up for it, but I always remembered him as the lame one.

I only just realise you only have a 2.5% chance of getting a Ormyrr and its by far the rarest dice that I own.
I under estimated that little toadie all these years!

This isn't the trade thread, but through some odd circumstances that is one of only two dice I don't have (I'm a competition as well). If you still have it and want to bump up the rest of your collection send me a PM and we can work out a trade.

I do like Mr Toad (also know as the Toadaronie and the battle toad around here) but I'm open to the idea of trading him.
I'll send you a message shortly.

Another question.
With the build your own starter set you get dragons that match the colours of the armies.
If I chose amazons, does that mean I would get two ivory coloured dice?
Sorry if thats a silly question, I just wanted to make sure how it works.

not a silly question at all.

I'd love to do that, but I don't think I have enough ivory dragons to do that.

Amazons can cast based on the color of the terrain, so really any color would match except for Black.

Chuck, do you agree?
