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!

    Its been 5 years of 5E, the optimist says 5E will make it to 50, the pessimist says cash grab time will commence and it'll be 6E by then.

    Different mindset than the old days; I'm old enough to remember AD+D and people bought it as a one time thing; the idea of buying the game over and over again with slight variation would be bizarre like insisting I continually buy the latest (annual?) version of "Uno(tm)" or "Monopoly(tm)"
