gems font family
A downloadable font
gems is a dingbat font family about polyhedral dice. It inserts dice icons as you type things like d8 and d6.5
gems Precise is inspired in old-school dice, with hard edges and stark aesthetics.
gems Polished has rounded edges like tumbled, modern dice. It works well with a multitude of text fonts. Very readable.
gems Metallic speaks by itself.
gems Antique is a distressed beauty that emulates the look of old press printing, and looks wonderful next to serif text.
gems Minimal is a simplified variant, with iconic dice and bigger numbers. Use it when readability and printing quality matter - like small sizes.
Each font includes common dice (4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 20 faces), an alternate d6 with pips, and comes with a variant, named Black. The Black fonts are inversed-color, high contrast versions with better performance on display.
The fonts are released under the SIL Open Font License. In short: pay once, use forever. You can use them for commercial purposes but not resell or redistribute the fonts.
NOTE: to get the maximum out of the font you have to use it in a software that supports open type ligatures. Any app by Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, or anything that has multilingual support is ready to go. It seems to work on Libre Office and Open Office, too.
If your preferred program does not support opentype you can still use it as a regular dingbat font, inserting manually each character.
