Description Edit | History

Love them, hate them, it doesn't matter - these are the tools of the trade! While there are a few RPG systems which do not use dice, most RPG players have a slew of them.

Specific dice (Fudge Dice, D&D Premium Dice) are listed under their parent RPG.

Dice without a parent RPG will be considered for a version in this entry

we are not listing people or company credits on this entry

What are dice?

Dice come in all shapes, sizes, colors. Dice are described by the number of sides. A standard 6 sided die is called a d6. Three standard 6 sided dice would be referred to as 3d6. The most common dice used in RPGs are:

d4 - A four sided die.

d6 - A six sided die.

d8 - An eight sided die.

d10 - A ten sided die. In the 80’s a d10 was a twenty sided die with the numbers 0 to 9 twice.

d12 - A twelve sided die.

d20 - A twenty sided die. In the 80’s, a d20 was a twenty sided die with the numbers 0 to 9 twice in two different colors, like black and red. Often a d20 was made from a d10 by using a marker to color in one set of the number (0 to 9) to signify they were 11 to 20.

d100 (two dice) - Are used to get a number from 1 to 100. Today there are special d10 with the numbers 00, 10, 20, 30, ... 90. You roll one of these and a regular d10 to get a number from 1 (00 + 1) to 100 (90 + 10). In the 80’s, you used 2d10 (d20) of different colors and used one as the 10 factor die and the other was the ones factor to generate a number from 0 to 99.

dF - Fudge dice are made for the Fudge roleplaying game. A fudge die contains two sides with a plus sign (+), which represent +1; two sides that are blank, which represent 0; and two sides with a minus sign (-), which represent -1. A Fudge die is functionally a three sided die (d3). While most d3s have sides 1,2 and 3, a dF has sides of -1, 0, and +1 - equivalent to a d3-2.

Special Dice - There are all kinds of special dice for PRG. Here are some examples.

Weather Dice
NPC Mood Dice
Amputee dice
Random dungeon creation dice
Random trap dice
Hit Location dice

A Standard set of RPG Dice includes seven dice; d4, d6, d8, d10, d10 (ten factor), d12 and d20.
