Anyone know if they are worth anything?  Have a pair (actually two pairs) I could unload.

Do they have the paperwork that came with them? IIRC they sell for about $40 a piece (not in pairs). I'm in the market for one.

I could be wrong, but I don't recall them coming with paperwork.

The Fist of Emirikol came with a cardstock sheet. Maybe that's what you're thinking of?

They didn't come with any paperwork, but then I bought them off ebay a fair while back, not from WOTC.

I could post a pic, but that article shows pretty much what they are.  :D

Cheers guys.  

If they are meant to be sold individually, I am happy to sell them individually.  If anyone is interested, feel free to post/pm me and in a day or so I will either private auction, or just sell them, depending on how many people want them.  Ian - you have already expressed interest.  :D

I'm definitely interested (as well as in a Fist of Emirikol, too).

Unless WotC changed their plans, the intention was that a pair of them would be included with the Epic Level Handbook, according to the page linked to earlier.

They must have changed their plans -- when I bough the ELH, it did not come with any dice. Not that I'd want them, anyway... but, still.

Like the WOTC page says, the dice were a limited edition: 2500 pairs (they're definitely meant to be sold as a pair), and only given away at certain game stores.

They were going between $10 and $30/pair on ebay a couple of years ago. I think I paid $16 for my pair.  Not too rare, yet.

To confirm: I got mine with an Epic Level Handbook (pre-ordered) from my FLGS.

I'm one of those guys who doesn't know his Emirikol from my Olidammara. What can I say? It's all Greek to me.

Any idea of the current market value of Olidammara and Emirikol?

Variable I think. Mine ended up on ebay and I seem to recall I got about 15 to 20 quid for them ($20?  $30$? or thereabouts) ...

of course that was before the 2008 banking collapse, the 2011 break-up of the Eurozone,
the great depression of 2012-2016 and the terrible cannibal winter of 2017.
(hmmm, possibly I may have given too much away there).

Nah, they tend to be on the chubby side from all the Big Macs they consume - there can be good eating on a fat kid :D


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

If anyone's planning to sell a Fist of Emirkol, I'm still interested!
