    I have a special set which my players have disallowed me from using. Small, gold dice. They look rather pretty, feel good in the hand, and they hate PCs. If I want some crits to show up, I roll out my gold d20. Players on a hot streak that season? Their love of gold will soon betray them. Been too long since A TPK scare? My olden goldie has my back.

    "Dice have personalities" Except for casino dice. They're milled from a solid piece of plastic, not molded, so they're never given the opportunity to develop a personality. Their sides are drilled and then filled with material of an equal density to form the dots. Their edges are sharp and their corners pointed. They are unnatural... ...and that's good because all this attention to detail and quality control means they roll far more randomly than any other dice.

    On one hand; this sounds like snake oil. On the other; all of my dice do in fact have "personalities" of how they generally roll. I always chalked it up to shit luck but sometimes they pull out for me at the best of times. Next time I make a dice set I'll try this out for shits n giggles but see how it turns out.

      ​@ArmoredChocobo Sadly 3d printing is way too inaccurate to make a solid die. Not just because of voids while extruding plastic or hardening resin, but because cooling and drying processes will inevitably make welts that ruin the surface and create "personality". To make completely random dice you'd need to manually machine a blank to millimeter accuracy on every face and then grind and lap every surface until they all can wring against a gauge block. The cost of doing this to a 6-sided shape is already insane, so nobody really wants to either sell at a loss or charge people hundreds of dollars for a completely featureless d20.

      RNG's snake oil too. It's not truly random, RNGs use a pseudorandom sequence based on an input seed. Closest you can get to perfectly random for dice are milled casino dice, but they're expensive and only available as a D6.

    I have a black and blue set I bought for my vedalken divination wizard a bit back when I finally got to play a game. Used it when that game ended as my personal dice until I rolled 6 nat 20s in a game and almost tpked the party. The sets been dubbed the player killer dice by them ever since, and only comes out for big fights

    My table has one D20 that was infamous after every roll made with it, after checking the number it would vanish from our view, and when someone would go to roll with it again we would have to find it, usually behind a cup or under a paper of some sort. It always rolled fairly well for the more stupid of checks. But it would always get lost or misplaced after a roll, maybe it's just one of the players screwing with us. Either way I still never have found that D20 since our last session.

      Considering manufacturing imperfections and material types (the only "perfect" dice are used by casinos and are strictly regulated), they might most definitely be like this. Your particular D20 could have significantly large bubble and that causes to it roll 20s more often......or 1s.

It's like they become gamblers dice when they meet me. It's the reason I play Halflings so often ;)

    Quick PSA: if you want to *really* know a die's bias, float it in a bowl of salt water. If it consistently shows a particular face above the water, it means that region of the die is slightly heavier than the rest. This means that a die that floats with a 20 showing is biased towards rolling nat1s, and vice versa.

      Opposite, actually. If the 20 is showing, that means the 1 side is heavier, so the one will end up on the bottom more often. Also, all dice will eventually settle, but dice that settle faster have a more obvious bias.

      Actually this is more rooted in fact than you realize. Many dice have small imperfections that appear during casting that ever so slightly skew the frequency of certain results by shifting the weight of the die. Dice made of heavier materials like metal or denser plastics, or dice with sharper edges, will bounce and roll less. Dice that have the numbers and pips carved into their surface will be more likely to favor certain results than painted dice, although this is more of an issue for cheap dice.

    When I roll my dice, if they roll low I let them rest. After all rolling high numbers takes a lot of energy. I take out a replacement die for a couple minutes and after about an hour let my main dice play again. Also if you roll metal dice I find rolling mine fast is the best way to get results, as the oil on your hands and make the iron smell for a couple minutes which when this happens to me I just roll crap.

      These are dynamic dice, they usually alternate between absurdly high rolls and absurdly low rolls, hardly ever landing anywhere between the just ok numbers between 8 and 13. Their good for both the highs of a diamond in the rough and the low rolls of a low & slow. Just be sure to keep track of whether the next roll is high or low.

    My table has varying levels of dice mysticism at play. Our DM is mad into it, and does keeps many things in order, as to not disturb the dice. 2 of our players don't care at all about it, and simply just enjoy the dice on an entirely non-metaphysical level. Me, and another player, both engage in a little mysticism, in that the dice have to be arranged in a certain manner. We both use 2 sets. For them, it's 2 columns of each set, positioned on the highest number. For me, it's a circle, with the d20's at the top, and the d4's at the bottom, all on one. This dice-versity makes the non IC parts of the game unique for each player.

      Well I figure when he mentions rolling out the low rolls BEFORE starting is actually useful. When you roll your dice your mind is working on how to roll it to your benefited (you need to get a feel for it) There is also mention of cheaters where the dice ("blorp") doesn't roll much at all. It makes sense.

    I've started making random characters partially to learn how to build them (I can't play yet, no group) and then running them by myself against a monster or two to help me learn. I used to roll crap constantly but just simply doing that my rolls have been pretty decent (for the monsters, a goblin one shot a telling bard I made, Nat 20 to hit with short sword, max damage)

      @Brandon D Wasn't there a computer card once that generated a random number using the seed of reading the static electricity pattern around the physical card? The electronic noise / fuzz was the real life "random" data.

      @Avatarbee unless of course the random number generator is using some sort of input from the real world to seed randomness. like the lava lamps at cloudflare

      Most "random" number generators use a seed based in the current time to generate a number. You can in theory predict every number a RNG will create at any point in time. As far as I know a computer cannot generate a number that is truly random and not based on another number.

    The showstealer... Ordinarily is a run of the mill d20, until you roll it for a boss encounter... Where it suddenly becomes a super prodigy.

      I played a game once where like 5+ ppl shared a D20 and one specific player needed to roll literally any number to successfully climb this tree or something. Every time the turns circled around to him, he'd try to climb.... rolled a 1 seriously 8 times when it came to his turn. Everyone else had normal rolls... but that dice, for that act, only for him, 1. Crazy unlikely statistics.

    The player killer dice, whenever I use it as a player character it acts as a normal if below average dice. But when used against my players as their DM it consistently crits no matter the player. I almost tpkd my first players with a single kobold who managed two crits immediately bringing the rogue into two death save territory.

    I subscribe to the theory that it isn't the dice but the player that best effect the outcomes. As both a player and a DM I notice a VERY consistent trend. I roll consistently high on attack rolls with occasional drops to 3. On physical saves such as dex, and con I roll insanely high regularly. However when it comes to intelligence checks or something that my character does not have a high stat or proficiency I will never roll above an 8. Wisdom saves are the bane of my existence as a player. My current wizard is currently 0 for 7 on wisdom saves in about 8 sessions.

    I was kinda wondering, there doesn’t seem to be a category for “low above ten, high below ten.” Because I rolled 3 dice I own that I never used before and ALL 3 gave me a 12-14, followed by a 7 (except one that was a 2)

    My die i would call the clutch die. It always rolls consistently around the 7-14 mark, and has definitely humbled me in the past. But to this day, it has rolled high and nat 20s whenever the life of my character is at stake.

    If you are trying to use dice that always roll well in a game that doesn't involve winning money there's a problem. Even trying to do it in money games that are supposed to be random chance is kinda a problem.

      Placebo effect is real. Believing can affect how you subconsciously control your die. We are part of the roll, so it's real enough. Superstition is tangible when applied to human influence.

    Whereas as I buy the pretty ones, because I think they're neat. Also my characters tend to have the same colour scheme because I'm predictable, and this helps a lot
