3D Printed D20 Die w/ Braille So The Blind Can Play D&D

September 2, 2015

This is the 3D printed D20 die given to Felicia Day by a fan who helps the visually impaired play Dungeons & Dragons (link to the model file so you can print one yourself HERE). That way your blind friends can roll with the confidence that you aren't cheating them out of hit points because you're some sort of sadistic Dungeon Master who gets joy from watching all the players die. Seriously, you need help, that's not okay.

Thanks to becca b, who just rolled a 20. Unfortunately, it was to see how many gold coins I stole from her satchel while she was sleeping by the campfire.

    Really they could already play, now they can just check if the other players aren't screwing him over.

    Is that white nail polish on a very waxy pale hand?

    Possibly just poor lighting/improper flash settings as far as the skin tone is concerned. The camera may be compensating for the background. It would have been better photographed on a neutral ground instead of being held up for the camera.

    Very cool. Although why on earth it gets given to Felicia Day I have no idea - apart from the fawning over her.

  • GristleMcNerd

    She's a very famous gamer type person. Fans like to give celebrities gifts - and in this case, the guy got a bunch of free publicity out of it

  • Wilf Smith

    Yeah I'm well aware of who she is, I liked her in the guild, I feel she's way over exposed now, bit of a bandwagon and she trades heavily on being "cute".

    I'm probably going to blow your mind right now so you might want to sit down. You ready? Ok, here it goes. Some of the people whom you're not a fan of are often admired by other people who ARE fans of theirs.

    Are you ok? Deep breaths buddy, we're just getting started. Here's the kicker, other people actually have their own likes and dislikes that, get this, differ from your own.

    Here's where it gets even crazier: it's actually ok to not share an opinion with other people. Insane, right?

    Personally I have no opinion of Felicia Day because I've never been that exposed to her or her work. However, whether or not you are a fan of hers, it's pretty obvious why someone would send a unique d20 to her. For starters she is a co-founder of a very popular company that hosts one of the most watched D&D web series on the internet. In addition, she has more followers than the players of that particular D&D series. Finally, her position within the "nerd community" will grant exposure to a product that might not otherwise receive such attention.

    Are there other people to send such items to? Of course there are, but the creator of this die was probably a fan of hers, and that my friend is the simplest, most obvious reason.

    Simply put, you may not understand why other people are fans of someone or something, but you DO understand what a fan is and so you know very well why this person sent her the die. Don't let ignorance blind you.

    Goodness me, quite the moral high horse rant there. Did you have a bad day schmookums ? As for a braille d20, I dunno, just putting it out there - it might be better off given to a blind person instead of Felicia Day ? Don't let me stop you ranting to yourself though. Let it all out.
