Dice, and Jargon


It is common in tabletop roleplaying games, such as Tales of Ver, to introduce some amount of randomness through the game using dice. In Tales of Ver we use two different types of dice to introduce randomness. The 6 sided dice, and the 20 sided dice. It is common to refrence these die as “1d6” for 1, 6 sided die, and “1d20” for 1, 20 sided die.To expand this notation, we can say something like “3d6” for 3, 6 sided die, or “5d20” for 5, 20 sided die.
