Best Christmas Gift Ever? Cthulhu Dice Bag.

There are a lot of ways to store your dice — bags, boxes…well, ok, two ways. But this one trumps them all, a handmade Cthulhu dice bag in eldritch black and Dagonian green.

As Robot Viking spokesdog Ruby demonstrates, this bag is the perfect size for an entire game’s worth of dice, whether you’re playing the Call of Cthulhu RPG, Arkham Horror, or a D&D campaign filled with lurking elder horrors. This particular bag is filled with Arkham Horror dice, special D6s in a sickly green hue with elder signs on the 5 and 6 faces (which confer success on an Arkham Horror action roll). And not just one set, three, for 15 total Arkham Horror dice, enough for any investigator carrying a weapon, some skills and a combat boosting magic spell.

Of course, you can’t just go out and buy an awesome dice bag like this. You need to have an awesome person to make one for you, like my wife (but she’s currently playing the role of my awesome person, so you’ll have to find your own). Luckily, the Arcana Vitae blog has posted the pattern. To a non-knitter like me, the directions might as well be the incantations of some insane lost god from outside the aeons. “Using your dpns, cast on 3 stitches in the CC (contrasting color) and DO NOT Turn work. With right side still facing up, slide the stitches to the right needle tip and bring the yarn across the back of the needle and knit the three stitches.” Ph’nglui Mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh purl’knit fhtagn.

  1. So if that mutt gets consumed by the dice bag in the last picture and returns as a cosmic entity from beyond time and space…would it be an Elder Dog?

    That’s seriously a pretty awesome bag, though.
