#RPGaDay 2016: Day 1: Dice!

As I’ve done for the past 2 years, I’m participating in #RPGaDay this year!

rpgaday-2016

Today’s question is about how you like to “roll.” Simple answer: Real dice, diceless, or dice apps.

My gripe with dice apps is that most of my use has been either an app on someone’s phone, which then distracted them, or Roll20.

Roll20’s dice hates me. I mean, really really hates me. I once went an entire session, with a combat, never rolling above a 6 on a d20. When I  play in Roll20, I often play characters who don’t have to actually succeed in dice rolls in order to be marginally effective, because of this.

So: physical dice are great. Diceless is awesome because it’s nice to get away from randomized conflict resolution systems. And dice apps are from the computerized devil, sent to undermine all chance I have of playing a competent hero.
