    What about rolling a low number followed by a high number? I rolled a 6 followed by an 18. Does that make them shy dice?

      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.

    Normally i don't deeply believe these things but i made a halfhearted remark about how my fav dice had been rolling super high most of the night but made a dogshit roll when jokingly asked to roll by also jokingly calling it a traitor. Next day rolls around and the last 12 rolls have been below 9 and 2 of them have been nat 1's. I insulted my prodigy and it doesn't like me anymore. I think i fucked up.

    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 have a set of solar flare dice, but they hate me. They typically only roll well for my phoenix companion (typically dancing and lookout since he’s meant to be in battle(for my character at least))I’m lucky to get above a 13 with them some days, but for my bird, it likes to roll really high. I now refer to them as Loki’s dice. My bird is the only one that hasn’t been betrayed by them.

      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.

      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.

  • nuya buisness
    nuya buisness

    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.

  • Jayden Liberty

    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)

  • ThomasTisMyName

    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.

    My personal favourite are the "all or nothing" dice. They are dice that consistently roll 1-3 or 17-20. Great for comedic players who love dramatic and unexpected outcomes, or gamblers who couldn't find a super prodigy but are willing to settle for 50%.

  • Jones Crimson
    Jones Crimson

    Alright I know this is gonna start a flame war where people talk about the fake fallacy "gambler's fallacy" but that bit about rolling out consecutive bad numbers before a game is real. If your rolling technique is consistent and the outcomes are varried then you are statistically less likely to roll low numbers in a row and the more in a row the more likely a high roll becomes. This is real. Imagine flipping a coin and getting heads 10 times in a row. Doesn't happen. If you flip a heads more than 3 times you need to start assuming the next outcome is tails, that you suck at flipping, or that the coin is rigged.

    • Maximilian “Setzke” Cooke
      Maximilian “Setzke” Cooke

      @Jones Crimson It balances out because it takes averages over a growing sample size, and the bigger the sample size, the less anomalies there should be. It doesn't fix anomalies, they just eventually become a blip for that margin of error you mentioned.

    • Hetsin
      Hetsin

      @Robin Parmentier Absolutely correct, the chance of ANY specific combination of 10 coin flips is about 1 in 1000, standard assumptions of fairness applied. HTHTHTHTHT is equally as likely as THTHTHTHTH at occurring at about 1 in 1000. So the chance of HHHHHHHHHH is 1 in 1000, as is HHHHHHHHHT. Since those are the only two possible outcomes after 10 coin flips and they have an equal chance of happening, that make the chances of the final coin flip (1/1000)/(1/1000) or 50/50. And frankly, after about the 7th flip of Heads I'd be assuming it's a loaded coin.

    The dice I regularly roll with is a shy piece of dice that seems to like me (albeit shyly), but was a lower roller for all previous owners. I already knew this. Tested it anyway. The other d20 I still own, I wasn't sure what would happen- the result I've found is it is a diamond in the rough. (mostly rolls higher, and seldom rolls low)

    I don't believe in luck... but I do have a lucky dice. Maybe even a legendary lucky dice. It's a pretty plain d20, completely transparent, no color, but some iridescent sparkles inside. It got it's legendary status when my playgroup decided to play some 3.5. I was on fire, and hadn't rolled anything under a 15 for the opening combat, even managing to score 2 natural 20's. When a player needed to make a pivotal saving throw, they asked if they could use my dice to roll, and succeeded easily. One by one, players took turn passing the dice around table, and the dice remained strong, never dipping below a 12. Even the DM took the dice, and he rolled them frivolously on the table until he got a 7 and a 5 to show up, just to see how long the dice's luck would hold out. Nevertheless, the dice were passed around the table the whole night, and not a single attack missed, or save failed, for as long as it was rolled that night. The session ended with a lot of happy memories, as we witnessed what was essentially a statistical miracle. The dice hasn't had a night like that since, and our playgroup disbanded, but the dice remains a symbol of godly luck in my heart.

    Dice do _indeed_ have personalities. I can usually tell just by picking them up whether they like me or not. But then..there is still the traitor.

    Finally someone who treats gambling like I do, but I think you forgot one, the drunk mimic. It shows a pattern of one of the others, but if you don't use it often, it get lonely, and as a result it drunkenly stumbles to random (usually low) numbers. Remember to keep your dice company for the off chance of a mimic

    I have about 3 sets of dice. 2 where given as a gift and 1 (my frist set) I got myself when I got into d&d. And it’s been faithful. My frist proper d&d character was an orcish paladin, a brutal encore who abused his power and seemed out heretics in the name of his god. This character had a love for kicking in doors and making an entrance. Every time he kicked a door, a Nat 20 was rolled. With 1 exception. The very frist time he did it in game he rolled a 1. The door was kicked open with such force it bounced off a wall and swung the other way, knocking the orc to the floor. It was humbling

    17 years ago I had a Silver D20 best one I ever had, I'm talking 12+ and only rolled lower on pointless checks. Until I lent it to a friend along with some other random die, who had no die of his own, so he could try and DM some of his friends, Whats the harm I thought? However, when it returned the D20 was never the same, it would never again roll past an 8 for me. I was young and stupid, don't be like me! don't let the ones important to you out of your sight.

      @LokiLockdown i bought it in a pack and was rolling them hoping to follow this video just kind of as a joke, thanks for the two new outcomes. Im a dm and i looooooove chaos and confusion, concidentally my players dont give a fuck and generally dislike combat and much more enjoy blowing up entire cities made out of bombs (my campaign is in the fey wild because at session zero when i asked my characters they all agreed upon a generally chaotic experiance) i didnt get any super prodigys but it's fine, i got a chaotic d20 so it was worth it in my eyes

      It's one of two dice, but you won't know which it is until you play with it, but whichever it is, it's sending a message to you. The first is the order die. Order dice are as close to truly random you can get. They will roll high and low near equally and will not change based on the situation. They communicate this to you by showing the extremes on both ends, showing you that both sides are equally possible and that neither side is barred. These Dice are great for rules lawyers and GMs who want a truly fair and random outcome. The second, is the chaos die. This die feeds on yours and your party's reactions and is prepared to do whatever it takes to make a situation go from bad to worst (not worse, WORST) or help you get that one in a million play. You will either fail spectacularly or shine like a star, whatever causes the biggest reaction is what they will give you. They tend to stay towards extremes in crucial moments and tend to roll middle of the road the rest of the time, though they may mix it up to create a bit of chaos. Some are more malicious and others more benevolent, but one thing is for sure. This die will make sure you remember the times you used it, and it shows you the extremes because it wants to use them.
