- Item introduction: A pair of dice once used by Hexipolia, the Wandering Illusion Clown. He was a renowned mage and artist in ancient times who traveled all across the continent to give joy to people and help them forget their troubles. His performance was a solace and hope to people living in confusing times, and they loved him to the extent that they made the Moon of Hexipolia after he passed away in honor of his noble spirit. However, the mentally demanding nature of Hexipolia's craft slowly gnawed into his soul, making him suffer from loneliness and depression. He wanted to give up his natural gift, but the shadow cast upon people was just too deep; he knew too well what his performances meant to his audience. It was his destiny to amuse people. Lu Etrona Dice is what he made to amuse himself during his painful journey of entertainment. He condensed his Mana into the dice and gave it the power to form a dimensional illusion. When rolled, the dice opened up an imaginary world where Hexipolia could find some peace. The dice was passed down to the descendants of his life-long pursuit for clowning, but it disappeared when the ancient civilization collapsed. And now, the dice in the hands of a man called the Illusion Gambler. Being used in a completely different way, against its maker's intentions.... it is said that the dice appeared in Esker's hands with blinding lights when he desperately wanted to escape this world.

- Soul Weapon Story: A pair of dice that appeared one day with a brilliant light and sheltered itself inside Esker's grasp. Esker cast the dice onto the gambling table. The moment the dice parted his hand, it would create a dimension of fantasy taking whatever shape its master wanted. The dice held bewitching magic that enchanted Esker's opponent into believing what's not real is real. Lies, created to confuse his opponents. But this power came with a cost. To create a world that was not supposed to exist, the pair of dice required an enormous amount of Esker's willpower. The price of opening the grand illusion was to have horrible nightmares that consumed Esker every night. It was a night that was so horrible that Esker could barely distinguish reality from his nightmares. Just when Esker was about to give up on everything because of the pain, he painfully reminisced Stardust. His favorite place of all. The dice escaped Esker's grasp and rolled away slowly as it opened a dimension never seen before. Esker heard someone's footsteps across the area he created. '-Finally. It's the first time you made my dice do what they were supposed to do.' A smiling face could be seen faintly. '-You, who are born to be a wanderer, you may use this dice as you please. I will not intervene at any moment.' '-But know this: I will always watch you from this illusion so that you do not walk the lonely road by yourself.'
