I agree that the standard dice are poor quality.  The translucent dice seem to be much better.  I think there are a lot of flaws in the standard dice.

 

How so? Is there really an objective difference between the two? I think the translucent dice look better, but I'm pretty sure they all roll the same.

Guys, it's Emperor Palpatine's little brother!!!!

 

In all seriousness though, I haven't seen anything to prove you're right. I've seen a few members make suggestions, and you call them trolls, and say they're opinion isn't worth anything. If this communities opinion isn't worth anything, why are you even here?????

The community we have here isn't perfect, but overall I believe that we are all civil and willing to help in just about every way. If you require some form of proof, go ahead and search for the thread entitled "Lost my minis" or something to that effect that was started by Millennium Falsehood back at the beginning of May. This group of people is totally and completely willing to throw wads of cash at a member in need. That's saying a lot.


Obviously it isnt I asked for dice alternatives, and instead of being helpful the majority of the 'community' here decided to be pissants and just be internet trolls. I dont care about your opinion about how the dice roll. Ive rolled them enough to want better options. If you dont have any positive feedback you and the rest of your 'civil' community should just keep your mouth shut


You say bad dice, I say operator error. Sounds to me as if you're using the ID-10-T mode of rolling dice and complaining it's the dice's fault for your poor rolling. My suggestion is stop using the ID-10-T mode to complain about how bad your dice are and just enjoy the game.

Maybe type "custom dice" into Google and visit one of the 10 million results that comes up.

My dice are only wonky in my own hand. Everyone else that uses them does fine with them.

 

lol, nice.. reminds me of my dice although i'm exactly opposite.

 

my defense dice are hot 99% of the time, but as soon as somebody else picks up my dice.. they roll cold for them, every time

 

i think i just have a magic touch to my rolling

put all your dice in a cup. When you want to roll...randomly draw however many dice you need.  Then even if they are a little weighted, they will still be random with the addition of the random selection of dice to begin with.  

 

I have never seen a problem with the dice, but if you have this might be a good solution for your gaming group.  However, it will not fly in a tournament of course.

To be fair, all he really wanted was a source from which he could buy (real, physical) third party dice.

I will be the guy to answer his question: no, sir; I am unable to provide you with a source, as I believe nobody is making them.

 

 

Now, on to the good stuff.. wow that guy was a huge ****.
