Hey, I own the set on the left. Chessex Water Elemental, if I'm not mistaken. The very first set of dice I bought when I started playing D&D back in '95.
I do prefer the numbers on the top.
Is that what they're called? I picked out a set at my old FLGS's random dice stuff. Thanks, now I know what to look for if I ever need more (also the first set I ever bought!)
When I do stuff like that, I usually treat 5-6-7-8 as just being 1-2-3-4 all over again, just to avoid confusion. It's really only ever come up when I needed a d3 for something though (used a d6). I think they make d12s now that work as d4's (each number is on it three times)- you might try those.
Waterbro! I actually have two full sets of those - one of which had a d10 get swallowed by my dog. I didn't know it was missing until my dad found it in the yard and asked if it belonged to me.
You better run for your life if you can, little girl.
left one is way easier to read, my group's always had trouble with the one in the right because the numbers are made smaller to fit in that shape and makes us waste a few seconds to read it
"i am a 1 3 4 dice and you are nothing, I will roll all under the table and you will not see me stopping. I am better than you, so fuck you stop trying to play my game because you will lose, this is the path you will choose"
"The 1 2 4 dice is better and looks cool, I dont have 3 together with that, its my time to say fuck you, you talk about games I talk about life, where I always win, there is only one path I choose, the one where you lose"
who won 1 3 4 dice or 1 2 4?
Pick the next rap battleeeeeeeeeee
Yup, this is the obvious superior solution.
Am I the only one that noticed that the same edge on the right die is labelled 1 and 3? That's fucking retarded. It's useless. And the triangular prism shape doesn't even roll. Caltrops are a stupid design for games.
This is the correct answer.
Tetrahedron, I'm happy for you being a Platonic Solid and all, but you roll like a wheel made of K'nex.
DODECAHEDRONS EVERY DAY NIGGA
The ones with the roman numerals on them are, I think, referred to as roman numeral d4s. You can probably find by searching for twelve-sided d4s as well.
That one looks like it's showing sides for 1, 1, 4 and 5.
Nope. Apparently not. In my defense, I literally just woke up. Numbers above 2 are tricky when you just wake up, because while your eyes are too bleary to count your fingers, you can still count your hands. Also, do you know how long it takes to count to three? People are bound to make mistakes getting there.
>vertices is a complex word to you
Holy shit I knew /tg/ was retarded but I assumed the average user would at least be above the "high school geometry" level. For fuck's sake, you count numbers and throw platonic solids around as a hobby. That this either eludes you or is a potential source of vitriol is probably the most salt inducing thing I've seen all day.
Serioustalk though, I play an RPG where every roll is 1d6. Resting an entire action, possibly a matter of life and death, on the "roll" of a single cube does not feel satisfying. There's a reason why most games go d10+ or dice pool.
I rely on a quadruplesix die these days.
I'm not a huge fan of percentiles. Time spent combining digits and adding two-digit modifiers, while brief, adds up fast when it's your core mechanic. And nobody actually needs this much precision anyway.
ah, good point, I like the roman numerals on the triplefours, but I don't like pips on my dice, but I think I'd prefer not having shit tier hit dice regen if i ever play a barbarian.
Left to right, because the majority of humans is right handed, which means that manual writing will not smear ink all over the place.
Also the reason why top to bottom is supperior.
Man, Water dice are perfect. That mix of speckled blues, the large, clear numbers in complementary white...
Out of interest, though, does anyone know if there's a Water set with the only difference being silver numbering?
I'm a bottom, but I like my dice numbers on top.
It's correct, as long as you realize that "reroll" means "reflip all coins" and not "reflip the last coin"
It's the simplest way to visualize it, but not the most efficient when it comes to minimizing rerolls/total average flips when you factor re-rolls in.
My favorite d4. 8 sided die with 1-4 twice. Has truncated edges to make it easy to tell apart from other d8s.
