I assume you've seen the Battle School ASL dice?  If not, here's a sample:

It's good that dice are finally getting the recognition for all the hard work they do.

d4's primary purpose is defensive in nature anyway

That's why you should use these:

I still have my d100 like that, although I bought my daughter a more modern d100 a few years ago.

Clearly you have never played an arcane spellcaster in D&D, then.  8)

Very cool. Did you get them all from a specific place or just collected them throughout the years?

They are all Battle School dice.  He designs the dice with certain themes, or just different nationalities.  They are very nice, although like most dice they tend to roll boxcars when what I really needed was snake eyes.   >:D

I've collected a few Tanks and Bolt Action d6 dice to use in games...I just added some British Airborne, Israeli, and Canadian. I have some Italian d6s too but I just realized I'm not sure where they're at...probably in my Lion of Judah box. A few polyhedral sets too even though I don't do any RPGs. Regardless of that, I've collected a few of those new hardback redos of old DnD adventure modules and just a couple of days ago went ahead and ordered the Player's Handbook for 5e. No plans on playing but I am interested in seeing the system again after all these years. I haven't really played since 2e.
