Novelty Dicemaker (formerly named Giulia al-Gindi) is a character in Disco Elysium.
A jeweler and master craftswoman plying her trade out of the converted heating furnace chimney of the Doomed Commercial Area, the Dicemaker, as her name suggests, makes a living by creating custom dice out of special materials for the roleplayers of Elysium. She is one of the only successful merchants to work at the DCA, perhaps due to the fact that the chimney juts outside the building and the "curse" that affects those within does not extend to her.
She has a habit of listening to radio while she works. It passes the time, but the headphones drown out all other noises, so she's prone to just drifting away and staring out the window into the Whirling-in-Rags' back yard.
- Meeting the Novelty Dicemaker is required to complete the Investigate Doomed Commercial Area task for Plaisance. She is located on the top floor, behind a security shutter. To get through it, you have to venture all the way down to the basement and interact with the heating furnace, then bellow into it (a Physical Instrument check). Startled, she will open the shutter and invite you in. Meeting her allows you to mention her to Plaisance and blame the curse on her (or not).
- She can offer a bit of information about the lynching, but due to her limited view of the back yard, it's only a small part of the puzzle.
- The Dicemaker can take a commission for a dice set from Harry, for ✤ 7.00. Purchasing a die requires waiting for several hours and can only be done once, but it will reopen white checks. Available dice are:
- The Novelty Dicemaker's portrait may have been based on the real-life oil painting 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' by Dutch Golden Age painter Johannes Vermeer.
