I am a roleplayer since many years and one thing I really miss are dice with a more varied look.

We roleplayers are a superstitious lot and all players usually bring their own dice. And of course we have certain "magical dice like my beloved red D20 I had since '94.

I realize that the way the game is made the dice need to be a specific color but but that color can vary a bit, there are more than one red color after all and there could also be clear red, spotted red and different color on the symbols.

This request might sound a bit odd to none roleplayers but trust me, have some variants of each dice and we will buy them.

I had to admit I was a bit critical about the none standard dice myself before trying the game out but they work excellent otherwise. :)

It sounds silly and/or paranoid to me, but….

Just use a sharpie and hit the edges. 

Or a paint-pen to re-color the inking.

Your not a roleplayer are you? Try to touch a roleplayers dice without asking first…:)

Anyways, hitting the edges is a bad idea, might "load" the dice. Recoloring the ink works of course, wont look perfect but it works.

And yes, roleplaying have been around for 40 years and dice are kinda a religion to many players. We have specific bags for them (mine is moose skin),many players have a crystal or some kind of gemstone in their bag and so on. I even know this buddy who eats his dies if they roll too many botches (really).

And the idea that everybodys look the same is just weird to many of us.

As a gamemaster, I love it. I just say "Leave your stupid dice at home". Although as a player, I would kind of be dismayed. haha.

I am a long-time roleplayer. Having fancy dice for each different character is nice, but I have to disagree on the superstitious thing. I know too many roleplayers who are into math, statistics, and physics to have superstitions about them.

But yeah, second taking a sharpie to the edges or something. Or just grab some blank dice and make your own.

I've been roleplaying 30+ years. I've seen a LOT of paranoid delusional behavior about dice. And I've seen a LOT of cheating involving dice that weren't fair.
