I think he was joking?

You can't roll a 1 on 2 d6es unless I'm missing something.

it's a simple transitive statistical relationship.

you can roll a d24 and divide it by 2 to get a d12 right?

from there it is trivial to prove you can also roll 2d6 to get a d12.

roll a d6, then roll a second d6, if the second d6 is 4-6 add 6 to the first roll.

Well then I would have to get a 2nd d6 then, in which case why wouldn't I just get a d12?

You're going to need at least a dozen six sided dice, 3-4 eight sided die, a d20 for every player, two d10s (or a d10 and a d100) [unless you think you might play Exalted, in which case you need 50+ d10s] and probably a d4 or two, unless you have an inordinate amount of daggers, small short swords, and Magic Missiles flying around.

Twelve sided dice are pretty much because dodecahedrons are the coolest polyhedron.

If you'll be playing Exalted, find a dice rolling program you like. Rolling dice by hand is kind of fun, but not worth it when the charceters are each rolling 30 dice to take a dump.

What is it?

The Demi-lich is a soul-eating floating skull that bides its time on a galleon full of treasure waiting for the Goonies to show up.

Where it Went Wrong:

Besides looking like a Pirates of the Caribbean alarm clock, the Demi-lich seems to possess no tactical advantages of any kind. It just kind of floats around, waiting for a party of heroes to smack it out of the air like a pinata.

We suppose it could try to bite you, but the illustration above kind of makes it look like the jaw is fused in place. Man, now we just feel sorry for it. :lol:

Yeah, didn't Pythagoras or somebody claim that the Dodecahedron was the key to understanding the fifth classical element* or the Music of the Spheres or something like that?





* The fifth classical element, by the way, was Void or Aether. It WAS NOT the life force, and it sure as fuck wasn't love!**
