A D&D Sapphire Anniversary Dice Set has been announced as one of the world's largest pencil-and-paper role-playing games celebrates not one but two anniversaries: it's been 45 years since the release of the original Dungeons & Dragons and five years since the release of Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition.

Upon its announcement Franchise VP Nathan Stewart had the following to say:

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, 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.

For the enthusiast with $299.99 to spare!

    Are you thinking of second edition? Math? This is basic addition and subtraction not Attack Vector: Tactical

    Math still slows down the story, even if it's simple. While there's plenty of fun to be had not knowing what a die is going to turn up in a crucial moment, the crucial moment is the important bit not the mechanics.
