Of dice and men

I mentioned once before of my love of dice and I probably have more than I need.

My first set of dice came with the TSR Marvel Superheroes rpg; two blank ten sided dice with a white crayon to colour in the numbers. I still have them somewhere and the once sharp edges have softened somewhat.

I also have the two tiny miniature twenty sided d10s that came with Middle Earth Roleplay and the two sharp red twenty sided d10s that came with my edition of Deluxe Runequest.  Both of these sets also required colouring in and I’m glad I still had the crayon to do so 🙂 .

Until recently I kept my dice in a simple padded pouch which used to house a laptop mouse.    Several years of use and a growing number of dice prompted me to replace it with a proper dice bag with a greater capacity.  So I did a little checking around and found one that met my requirements and ordered a limited edition space patterned bag from http://www.koeddicebags.co.uk/ .  I’m quite happy with the bag and it makes a change to see something attractive sitting at the table rather than the old plain pouch I had.  Plus it also houses the d100 I bought all those years ago without bulging at the seams 🙂

About the Author

I've been gaming on and off since about 1989 and during that period have played with numerous game systems. I'm fluent in a few, have a basic understanding of quite a few more and can get by in others. Somewhere along the way I found time to be a playtester, contribute to an unpublished game supplement and be associated with another gaming magazine written by far more talented people than I. This lead to one infamous article being written in which I followed the letter of the adventure and torched the parties river barge. I'm also listed on http://rpggeek.com as a game designer.
