So as as game of many years I have accumulated quite the collection of knick-knacks, gee-gaws and other assorted gaming stuff.
None of which compares to my dice.
I’m fairly suspicious when it comes to dice and I always took the opportunity with a new campaign to buy some new dice, in the hope that they would be lucky.
The last set I purchased were metal with a nice gold finish and a suitable heft to them. I bought them because I thought that they would be unbiased and not have the same problems as my plastic ones. The problem is that the d20s are a little biased and tend to roll high numbers.
I still have the set of dice that I bought for a player who suddenly passed away; they have never been used and not taken out of the polybag in which they came in. I think I shall keep them that way, a reminder of the gamer who is no longer with us and the chair which will never be filled.
Perhaps I shall also break my Traveller 5th edition dice out and give them a whirl; even if they are a bit larger at 19mm than most of the d6s I have.
