So now they need to get the chicken to vomit it up to make it roll 20?

Either that, or it’s just like Four and will start spitting up dragon-scaled D20 mouthdice.

The dice god was arrogant, and now has been humbled. It will always roll a twenty now, in a desperate bid to NEVER BE FED TO THE CHICKEN AGAIN!.

That requires it to survive. It’s been getting the “velvet gloves and a cushion or lamb-skin rolling mat treatment” since it started being used. It just got rick-rolled in a chicken and hacked up onto the table… that die is about to shatter

A tool used to roll dice in a fancy/ lazy/ redundant way.

alternatively it can be an assistive aid for those who may struggle to roll normally (ussually due to a disability) for those without a disability there is a persistent insistance that it gets around flaws in the dice and therefore makes the dice roll “more true” however ive not really seen evidence for the second

We used to have a guy who cheated. So we made him use the dice tower, and roll where we could see. WE found out he was using loaded dice later on and kicked him.

I thought this type of game was cooperative (players vs scenario?) Why would one need to cheat?

Some people get their jollies by outperforming their peers no matter the scenario or fairness of it.

How “co-operative” it is depends entirely upon the make up of the group and the setting. GENERALLY the idea is that it’s the members of the group versus the plot-provided challenge or enemy. Sometimes you get a new DM who just wants to see the party die. Sometimes you get a player who hates losing, or missing, or wants to be “better” than the other players. Sometimes you get a player who wants the story setting and environment of a D&D campaign and group but wants the challenge level of a video game character who is ALWAYS going to be… Read more »

I kinda wish he had said that it WASN’T the weirdest dice roll he had seen.. just so we can imagine what might have been weirder.

He didn’t say it was the strangest roll, he said it was the strangest tower. Making it possible for him to have seen a stranger roll.

Good to see that once Four hatches a plan, she doesn’t chicken out and just rolls with it!

Two, on the other hand, doesn’t seem like a fan of fowl play. He’ll defend the rules or die trying. Four really ruffled his feathers.

And cue this being how 2 rolls his dice from then on, the fluffy chicken feather coating protecting it from the evils of 1’s curse..

I think it’s less that it protects the die from 1’s curse and more the fact that 2 doubted it, thus giving it the power to roll high.

It’s not how hard you throw it, Four, it’s that a chicken is a self-righting 3D object. You can’t roll for initiative with a chicken.

But yeah, chicken dice tower, sure.

As a console gamer but not tabletop gamer, I now know what it feels like when a non-console gamer reads the game-specific strips and doesn’t understand a single joke in the entire storyline.

For once 4 makes sense. “You can roll anything if you throw it hard enough”

I wouldn’t be surprised if that dice will roll 20s or close to 20 all the time for each player under certain circumstances. With Player 4, I think she would always roll 20 but would stop using the dice because she would get bored by the dice rolling the same thing all the time and she’s the most chaotic player.

Now see, 1, if that’s the weirdest Dice Tower you’ve ever seen, you haven’t cruised the internet enough.

Hm, I’m still unsure how the chicken was able to eat the dice in the first place, considering how far away 4 sits from 2. It would have been easier to eat the dice of 1.

We’re talking a chicken, swallowing a large hunk of metal, and you’re concerned about seating positions?
