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!

    Life was simpler a couple years ago; 4E sucked so everyone used Pathfinder

    Now its complicated; 5E is way better and Pathfinder is internally self destructing with the whole 2nd edition situation. I'm certainly not buying anything Pathfinder until the 1st/2nd edition thing settles out; that kind of "wait and see" killed many technology companies back in the old days. I'm not really "sold" on Pathfinder 2E anyway, there is some smell of "we just wanna sell the same books over again".

    Seems to be best to figure out what the locals are using and join them. No longer a marketplace of whats best but a marketplace of whats locally popular. 5E seems to be winning locally, but just like internet discussion of cell phone coverage on a worldwide forum is kinda pointless without large scale statistical analysis....

    Honestly, Fate-based games are more fun than D&D to me since I discovered them. Less math, simpler rules, all in an effort to the the mechanics the hell out of the way of the story.
