    How does it make you feel that after this whole time you were rolling perfectly random, that in actuality your rolls were completely inaccurate??

    I would prefer dice that less often roll 1s or 20s, because a 1 is more damning then a 20 is saving. That said, if your really worried about it use an electronic pseudo-random number generator.

    Real players test out all of their dice, recording thousands or rolls, until they pick one that rolls significantly higher than the rest of the pack.

    They then feed their group some lukewarm bullshit about fate and destiny and true heroism while using that die.

    Hm. There were a couple things that bug me (like his statement of "if I get a thousand dice that are 1/1,000th of an inch off and stack them up to a thousand of my dice, the off-stack will be 1 inch taller or shorter than my dice!", which is untrue unless you get a mass of dice that are all off in the same way, which isn't what he said). Also, he didn't directly address my manufacturer of choice, Chessex. Their dice almost always stack up the same way, from what I can tell, and having used individual Chessex dice for over six years now I haven't seen the slightest bit of wear on their edges. He also didn't mention how having round edges inhibits randomization, because in fact it does not. IRREGULAR edges impact randomization, which is why cheating "gamblers" shave the edges of their dice: to create a statistical irregularity in the dice. The crisp edges in casino dice are there for the benefit of dealers who need to be able to quickly verify that a die has not been tampered with.

I think a good central paradox for the school is that they seek to influence events and people, but are utterly subject to the whims of random chance themselves. It has no blast. Their taboo is that they cannot alter a die roll - they must play it where it falls. Moreover, they cannot roll a die without recording its outcome in their notebook to verify true randomness.

    Fools, an electronic RNG only pseudo-random. A more powerful computer could always predict the result, thus ruining your game.

    The edges on the d4 look silly in comparison to the razor sharp edges on the other dice. I suppose it's done so it doesn't just land and stop right away?

    It's so it actually can roll, yeah. I have that problem with my normal d4s, they simply land on the table and don't move.

    That's because they're not dice. In the distant past, when the brave roleplayers fought a losing battle against their greatest foe, the Batshit Insane People Thinking Games Made People Kill Themselves, they needed a weapon. They could not carry them legally, because their moms, in whose basements they dwelled, would take them away.

    In their hour of need, a young man with a neckbeard more vast than any seen before or after, devised a cunning plan. Learning from the very books his kind coveted, he saw the caltrops, and a plan began forming. They would create a weapon that would be too akin to their dice for the enemy to discover. And so they did. Forged upon the sacred Core Rules, cooled with the ashes of a thousand demons, was born the first d4.

    It's not meant to roll, it's meant to stand proudly, as a defender of the neckbeard kin.

    You can feel him shifting into "sales mode" whenever he conjures up the spectre of defeat by GMs rolling innacurate dice, KILLING YOUR CHARACTER!

    My comic book dealer speaks with a similar tone in his voice whenever he praises the pristine condition of his comics and how that increases your collections value.

    I don't buy single issue comics anymore (more of a reader than a collector anyway), but I would buy a set of that guys dice.

    Then, after that awesome lecture I would go to a cheapo dicebin and hunt for D20 with lines still visible around the 1 and its neighbour surfaces and a really licked down 20 surface with its edges polished away.

    Gotta examine my current gaming dice...

    I've seen good dice and bad dice. My friends call them lucky or cursed, but I knew what was going on. If had the money, I'd buy buckets of each type of dice, each the same color, and every game night I'd pass them out, without knowing which were good or bad. Call me a Nazi, but I'd even start dishing out minor smites to for players rolling their dice to see the numbers they'll be getting. Hell, after every roll, use a new die!

    does 0.254mm actually affect rolling behaviour THAT much? ill have to pull out my micrometer, a pair of d6 and after correcting them by polishing them against a perfectly flat abrasive on a perfectly flat glass surface (600 grit glasspaper 'll do). then pick one, shorten it 0.254mm on the 1 to 6 axis and compare.

    just for argument's sake I'll do another, this time ill lave the faces as is, instead I'll polish around the edge on the "6" side. increasing the radii on those in an attempt to prevent it from rolling 1's.
