This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

So I like dice, see...
« on: July 26, 2022, 01:37:18 PM »
So, I like dice, see.  And I Like a lot of dice rolling to shape the outcome of events, and the players reacting to them.  Like, a lot of dice rolls.
I saw in the RPG Pundit's signature file that he has a game with a diceless system, to streamline storytelling.    But I like how dice rolls can make unforseen things happen to force the players, and the GM as well, to react to. 

Do you like some dice rolling, a lot of dice rolling, or none?  And can we use this thread to analyze the contrast among them, because I'd like to know more.

As an avid solo RPG fan, dice are a great way to craft unknown events, random details, and plot twists.  I'm also keen on other random systems like runes, tarot cards, and custom decks.
