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!

    Which is why TMB is doing it, since he likes Faux News so much :)

    Seriously though, some people liked 3E, plenty of plebs like 4e or 5e, but if you wanted the 'Gygax Experience' that died between 1e and 2e, and 2e, as expensive as it was, was still the closest to the last time it was not a money grab (go look at the sheer content in 2e era boxed sets and consider the formatting/manual labor involved, compared to the later full color and much shorter books at 3x the cost, churned out on a 5 year interval to get suckers rebuying the popular subset of the same products over and over again as they rewrite the rules so you can't use old copies.
