Our friends over at Munkstein just released a new Ragnarok Stein and we've been rocking them in the office all week. When I get my dream gaming room I'm going to get these guys to design all ceramics!

Cody Miller of Far Off Games had his dad make him a gaming table that he could use standing up while play-testing his own games. Cody is the creator of Xia, one of my favorite thematic games.  When I first saw his pictures in his latest newsletter, I got excited. Leopardwood table!!!!!  Then I began reading and it said Lacewood. Still it looks almost like leopardwood.  I'm jealous of his table.

Leopardwood and lacewood are related woods.  Perhaps @Konas could make a coffee table out of lacewood for you as it's lighter than leopardwood.  From the wood bible:

The name “Lacewood” is used very loosely and can be applied (and misapplied) to a number of different wood species. In its vaguest sense, the term “lacewood” is used to describe any wood that displays figuring that resembles lace. Attempts to identify a specific board macroscopically may be difficult.

Two Australian species, Northern Silky Oak (Cardwellia sublimis), and Southern Silky Oak (Grevillea robusta) can both look very similar, and are sometimes sold as Australian Lacewood. Additionally, Leopardwood (Roupala spp.) looks similar, but tends to be slightly darker brown, and is significantly heavier.

Dos DMG use much lacewood?  It was not a CoCo option. Have there been dice made of lacewood?

Not really. It is really expensive compared to leopardwood so we chose to go with Leopard only. If we sold more of the Leopardwood, we would probably add on some Lacewood.

I think Leopardwood is a great choice. Its a beautiful pattern. On my dice tower, it makes the church building carving look like it has natural brick. Great effect. I love showing off my tower at my Pathfinder meetings.
