What’s with that last panel? 1 is making it look like there’s something odd about mouth dice.

Well, would you rather fight with a rusty sword, or a magical blade forged from a meteor?

Yeah, I thought so.

if they both do 1dmg, I don’t see why I’d go through the hassle of acquiring a magical blade forged from a meteor when rusty swords can be picked up right off the ground

I mean, if the sword made from a fallen star deals 1 damage, it’s probably a https://xkcd.com/1114/ scenario and it’s space gravel.

I was just trying to push the metaphor, because no matter who manufactured your dice or if you went and killed someone to craft one from their femur, a dice is a dice, so in that metaphor, the rusty sword and the magical blade are the same thing, give the same results, one just looks cooler than the other (rust, f*ck yeah)

Wow, negative likes from that? Guess I shouldn’t have sounded so snarky, lol.

But seriously… the magical blade clearly does more damage. That’s the whole thing.

As far as the dice go, they may have the same numbers, but everyone who has roleplayed knows that some dice are luckier than others. (Though it IS true that that doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with how much you paid for said die.)

i dunno, that rusty blade is just as sharp and a knick will likely cause some nasty infection. meanwhile the meteor blade is just magical and an anti-magic area is just gonna make it a normal blade anyway.

Not JUST magical. The forged properties provide a non-magical to hit and damage bonus, too. (As evidenced by their utility in the real world.) Plus rusty blades have a tendency to snap in half when you use them.

But I’ve apparently hit opposite land on the comment board today… probably because of my intro statement.

Rusty sword all the way. You know where you stand with those. Not some beacon to the farplane that sends out a signal everytime’s it is swung to bring its dark creators ever closer.

The magic sword probably sends all you personal information to inter-dimensional Amazon or something.and shows ads on the blade.

Just wait until someone looks in her ears. Dice futures will collapse from the sudden market glut, then rally when everyone realises they don’t want to use/touch/be aware of her eardice.

It’s a world with blue, green, red, and yellow people, who spontaneously regenerate after being murdered, and one who just grows D20s in her mouth for no reason, and the thing that you’re stuck on is “But dragons aren’t real”?

The louder the *clacking* your dice make when rolled, the more powerful you are.

I’d be mostly worried that such an elaborate design might not be weighted properly. Hard to test the dense ones, after all.

depends on which way the bias lands. If its weighted badly and tends to roll 1’s you probably don’t want to be using it. perfect gift for you GM though.

In case you didn’t notice yet… but the “share on facebook” puts the “latest silly” comic in the post instead of the current comic image. Same happens when taking the URL and pasting it in a new facebook post… I think somthing with the pages meta headers πŸ™‚

Paying that much for a single D20 that is a bad roll away from being exiled during a campaign seems extravagant.

If you aren’t publicly shaming your bad dice, how will they ever learn to be good dice?!?

It will never fail you if you never roll it. It just sits in its box looking glorious as a regal figurehead for all other dice to to aspire to.

There was a point where I stopped asking questions about player 4 and decided to just roll with it. I think it’s when she was introduced.

Some weird tonsil stones or maybe she’s a Clepto with Pica and throws em up later, for some reason never noticing she was eating the dice at the game shop. They do sometimes look like candy…

So…right now I see this story going one of two ways. Either 2 is going to roll extremely lucky and everyone is going to fight over the special dice, or he’s going to roll extremely poorly but keep using the dice that fails him every time. I find the second one more likely, but wanna see where it goes.
