dice. they have to be my favourite part of playing D&D. i mean just look at them, with all those sides and numbers. oo, total nerdgasm! i was so excited that my Red Box Starter Set came with a set of 6 polyhedral dice so that i could start rolling them bones right away.
this is a pictures of my gaming group’s dice. my original dice are the ones on the right and i love them. the black with white numbers. they came with the 4e Red Box. i actually much prefer the d10 of that set opposed to the chessex dice. it actually says 10 instead of 0. i never got why they put 0 instead of a 10 on their dice, its just not that climatic when you roll a crit with your d10 and it comes up as 0 and i should know; my fighters use d10 for their damage rolls. yeah, we rock the greatsword.
my newest set is the red/black volcano speckled dice with silver numbers. my girl got them for me for Christmas. i actually really like them. don’t they just scream Ravenloft to you? By the way, I will be running Ravenloft in 4e very soon! ill post about that soon so check back with us!
my girl owns the pink and black gemini set and my sister owns the purple translucent ones. i have to admit, i do game on a budget but you just gotta have the actual chessex dice. they aren’t too expensive, around 10 bucks or so.
also, a word of advice on purchasing dice: its always a smart move to buy them in person if possible. you never know what they will come out looking like when you order online. ive seen genimi sets that were really bad looking and some that are brilliant. but the gamble can be fun as well. 😉
