If you missed our campaign, don't dismay! Just choose an option below.

Meet the Dungeon Journal!

The Journal is your new premium engraved hardwood dice box wrapped inside a leatherbound notebook, complete with pages that transform into essential DnD gaming gear! Customize, engrave, and personalize every aspect for an immersive blend of fantasy with function. Scroll on for more details, or if you’re ready to start building yours…

How does the Dungeon Journal work?

The Dungeon Journal is a bunch of things at once - a leather bound binder, a dice vault, a bunch of foldy inserts - if you're craving more unfolded details, this section is just that. We totally didn't put filler text here to hold your attention while the million .gifs load up, and quite frankly we're scandalized you would even think that.

If a .gif doesn't load before you scroll past it, does it still make a sound?
An unloaded .gif is like a frozen turkey (in that both remind me of baseball)

Dogmight Gaming Special Collaboration Dragon Sheath Spines!

Sizes 'n' Stuff

Have Questions? We Know Some Stuff!

Elderwood is a team of industrious hyper-evolved termatos (termite+tomato hybrids)(ooh with jetpacks)(and a laser!)(yeah, cool laser! pew pew!) who love woodworking, dungeons, and the occasional garnish dragon. Have a question, suggestion, opinion, or sonnet only a woodcarving arthropodmato can respond to? Reach out to us over email at, Twitter @Elderwoodboxes, Facebook (metabook!), or Insta @Elderwoodacademy.


To paraphrase John Donne, "no man (or corporate entity) is an island" - we at Elderwood are active members of the RPG-loving community and love getting the chance to team up with backers and other maker-folk alike.

This Kickstarter, the Dogmight Games team has added some absolute (but non-literal) fire to the Dungeon Journal. Check out the Dragon Sheath Spines section above for more deets!

Much of the Special Edition art packages were hand-crafted 'n' drafted by 88 Riddles. Check out his work for beautiful and immaculate painted RPG gear!

The Elderwood Crew Appreciates You!

Whether you're a die-hard fan or just wandering by, we appreciate you, person still reading! This is our 10th Kickstarter campaign, but Elderwood in large part remains what it was at the start - an extension of building-things-for-our-hobby that has morphed into a mail-order FLGS. We're always filled with gratitude when you all come together to breath life into these projects, and your support means the world to us.

Infinity hugs and hearts,

Q&D&The Elderwood Elves
