About

For gamers. By gamers. Find your adventure.

Hrothgar's Hoard loves gaming as much as you do, and we know that your gaming gear matters. That's why we believe in providing you with excellent wooden gaming accessories at great prices. We bring the best of traditional artistry to our craft - every piece that Hrothgar's Hoard makes is sanded, finished, and polished by hand. We never use stains, veneers, or cheap substitutes. By working with nature, the wood's natural beauty and intrinsic magic can shine through.

SOLID WOOD. BEAUTIFUL. TIMELESS.

There is something special about using real hardwoods when playing table-top games. In today's electronic age, it is all too common to see inexpensive, poorly made containers and accessories for miniatures, dice, and other gaming necessities.

Get back to your roots with our selection of beautiful hardwoods:

BLOODWOOD:
Bloodwood is a bright, vivid red which appeals to many people. It is straight grained, but frequently has tension in the wood. This tension can cause boards to warp or twist if humidity levels change rapidly. It is extremely dense and very difficult to work; frequently splintering or chipping while machining.

Magical Properties: ​​Bloodwood is a remarkable wood mainly for its ability to utilize elemental energies. The wood itself can channel and enhance the affect of all elemental energies, but the degree to which it can do so seems to depend upon the person utilizing the wood.

Best for: Sorcerers, Warlocks, and Rogues

CEDAR:
Cedar is actually classified as a softwood since it comes from a conifer tree. It is light and soft and needs a little extra care lest dents and scratches can harm the wood. It is a combination of reddish or violet-brown mixed with pale yellow with streaks and stripes for the wood. It is commonly used in chests and has a very distinctive smell to it.

Magical Properties: ​Cedar cleanses negative atmospheres and is used for the creation of sacred spaces. It is often used to summon helpful spirits during rituals and invocations.

Best for: Paladins or Clerics with good or lawful alignments

CHERRY:
Cherry begins as a light pinkish brown when first sawn, but darkens to a medium reddish brown with time and exposure to light, It is relatively light for a hardwood and is easy to work with, although it tends to burn easily and frequently requires extra sanding.

​Magical Properties: Cherry is suited for use in hunting magic, working with animals and familiars as well as spells of detection and amplifying spell work.

Best for: Druids and Rangers

MAPLE:
Unlike most other woods, the sapwood is most commonly used rather than the heartwood. Sapwood has a white, creamy color while the heartwood is usually a darker, reddish-brown. Maple is extremely hard and durable. It has straight grain and can occasionally have curls, spalt, and other mineral streaks in it. Maple can be difficult to work because of its hardness.

​Magical Properties: Maple is used for spiritual healing. It is also known as the travellers wood and enhances intellectual pursuits, acquiring knowledge and communication.

Best for: Wizards, Clerics, and Paladins

CURLY MAPLE:
Curly Maple is not a species of wood, but a description of the grain. It is so called because the ripples in the grain pattern create a three dimensional effect that appears as if the grain has “curled” along the length of the board. Other names for this phenomenon are: tiger maple, fiddleback maple, (in reference to curly maple’s historic use for the backs and sides of violins), or flamed maple.

Best for: Rogues and Bards

AMBROSIA MAPLE:
Like Curly Maple, Ambrosia Maple is technically not a specific species of Maple. Rather, Ambrosia Maple is the description of the pattern which occurs when any type of Maple becomes infested by ambrosia beetles, resulting in a beautiful discoloration effect. This is sometimes also called "ghost maple."

Best for: Magic users with evil or chaotic-neutral alignments

OAK:
Oak is an exceptionally strong and hard wood, making it perfect for building, shipmaking, and furniture construction. Oak is also used to make barrels for the aging of wine and spirits, to smoke fishes and meats, and even to tan leathers. Oak bark is also used in medicines.

​Magical Properties: Oak is associated with strength, healing, longevity, stamina, and will. Oak groves have long been known to be especially effective places to cast spells.

Best for: Fighters, Monks, and Barbarians

PADAUK:
Padauk ranges in color from a pale pinkish-orange to a deep brownish red. It almost always has orange cast to it. It is relatively hard (harder than walnut) and easy to work.

Magical Properties: ​​A powerful yet chaotic wood, Padauk is not at all recommended for those new to The Craft. The energy of this wood is constantly changing, randomly fluctuating. It would, however, be an amazing wood for healing magic if one could learn to harness the chaotic energy within. In the hands of the inexperienced, it would likely do more harm than good.

Best for: Warlocks, as well as high-level clerics with chaotic alignments

POPLAR:
Poplar has a creamy-yellowish color, occasionally with dark streaks from minerals. It can also have a slight green cast to it. Poplar is an extremely light wood, not having the hardness of other hardwoods. Generally it is straight grained and has low natural luster. It works easily, but can sometimes leave fuzzy surfaces and edges.

Magical Properties: ​Poplar has a very diverse energy, allowing it to be an all-purpose wood for magical workings. The diversity of energy makes it useful for evocation as well as banishment rituals.

Best for: Characters with good or neutral alignments

PURPLE HEART:
When freshly cut, Purpleheart is a dull grey/purple in color. As it is exposed to UV light, it becomes more of an eggplant purple. Over time, the color will again change to a brownish-purple. Purpleheart is very hard and has a tendency to splinter when worked.

Magical Properties: ​Purpleheart is a spiritual wood, making it perfect for divination. It also enhances energy dealing with creativity and knowledge.

Best for: Paladins and Bards

WALNUT:
Walnut heartwood ranges from light brown to a dark chocolate brown. Sapwood is pale to yellow or even nearly white. Walnut works easily, is relatively hard and glues and finishes well. This is a very "rich" looking wood.

Magical Properties: ​Black walnut is used in magics of telaportation, astral travel, weather working and powers of the wind.

Best for: Wizards, Bards, and high-level Druids

WENGE:
Wenge's heartwood is medium brown, sometimes with a reddish or yellowish hue, with nearly black streaks. Upon application of a wood finish (particularly an oil finish) the wood can become nearly black. Wenge splinters fairly easily, but is otherwise easy to work.

Magical Properties: ​Wenge draws from the elements of earth and water. It seeks a companion of strength and versatility. Wenge is most compatible with an owner who is in touch with nature. It is used for defense and protection and is excellent for dispelling dark magic.

Best for: Druids and Rangers

ZEBRAWOOD:
Zebrawood's heartwood is a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. Depending on whether the wood is flatsawn or quartersawn, the stripes can be either chaotic and wavy (flatsawn), or somewhat uniform (quartersawn). Zebrawood is very stable and is moderately easy to work.

Magical Properties: ​​A neutral wood which draws from the element of earth. It can be used for healing and repelling spells and seeks an intelligent companion. Excellent for cleansing magic, good for divination and moon related magic.

Best for: Clerics, Sorcerers, and Warlocks, but especially Wizards with any neutral alignment
