When it comes to Dungeons & Dragons-style roleplaying games, I have two main requirements:
- Ascending Armour Class (Time is precious in our short, monthly, gaming sessions, so the fewer tables I, as DM, need to consult during a game the better).
- The use of multiple polyhedral dice (We've all got them, so let's use them!)
It's essentially a golf ball with numbers on - and rolls as such!
I knew there were d100's (but I've seen them priced for insane amounts, e.g. £25... for a single dice... not made of gold!), but had never seen a d60 before.
The same Amazon vendor also had d120s - claiming that geometrically (is that the right word? I can't remember exactly how they phrased it) that's the most number of sides you can have on a functioning dice.
Having rolled my d60 a number of times, I can only imagine that rolling a d120 is akin to rolling a snooker ball.
While nowhere near as pricey as the Zocchihedron d100, the d120 was still quite rich for my budget this month.
I'm sure, though, it won't be long before I'm chasing over the floor after it having rolled the spherical die on the table and watched it make its escape...
Of course, none of this means I have less love for the trusty d6, the backbone of my 'infinite dice pool'.
I recently managed to snag, via eBay, this pair of 'stormtrooper' themed dice:
I guess I shouldn't use them for rolls 'to hit'!
