A downloadable typeface

Dicey is a simple d6 (six-sided die) typeface! I made this for tabletop role-playing games, but you can use it for whatever you like.

DETAILS

Characters included:

  • capitals from A to Z
  • die faces from 0 to 9
  • a few symbols (question mark, exclamation mark, plus, minus)
  • an ordinary space

There are two fonts in the typeface:

  • Light (filled pips/symbols on transparent faces)
  • Dark (transparent pips/symbols on filled faces)

All of Dicey's glyphs correspond exactly to the letter, number, or symbol you type and should read correctly with text-to-speech software (make sure to put spaces between number faces if you want them to be read separately, e.g. 4 6 rather than 46). Zero gives a blank die face (i.e. zero pips) and 1 through 9 give die faces with that many pips.

LICENSE

License: Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 (you can freely use it in commercial and non-commercial projects as long as you credit me as its designer).

I made Dicey using Fontstruct (here are Light and Dark), which is freely available and pretty simple to use, if limited. Feel free to clone Dicey from there and make changes if you want to create a similar font.

PAYMENT?

Dicey is freely available, but if you've found this useful and particularly feel like paying me back for it, buy me a coffee over on my Ko-fi page.

EXAMPLES

I've used Dicey in a few projects of mine so far—you can see examples over to the right (published and unpublished).

Hi, I used the light version in the ebook express (https://angela-quidam.itch.io/ebook-express), a guide to easily and quickly create ebooks. Also submitted to the TTRPG Resource Jam. I mentioned you also created a dark version so people could come on your website!

I used your fontstruct link but tell me if you should prefer a link to your itch.io page:

Hell yeah, I've been interested in epub for a while and this looks like a great guide! As for the credit, directing people to the itch page is probably better, as itch is the main place I'll be uploading and updating fonts in the near future.

OK! I'll update it with your itchio link.

Would be greateful if this guide could be useful to you
