Anyone have anything from http://www.artisandice.com/ ?

They're supposedly shitty and slow, but they make everything from carbon fiber to titanium to jewel encrusted ancient wooden dice.

I just got new dishes and bowls, and thought about how I want more Dwarven Dice.

What do people think of Polyester Resin dice that supposedly bounce more because they deform and return to their initial shape?

It didn't occur to me how many I'm missing until I dumped out the bag and started sorting. I'm sure some got mixed up with my brother's dice collection (200+) when he came to take them back (he's teaching his daughter to play D&D, starting with 1e), but I remember having more assorted d20s, an entire transparent orange set, and more of those purple ones in the center.

I'm not sure where all those white d6s came from, but I know I've had them the longest out of all them, likely dating back to at least 1995. the green set, white set, and dark red set I've also since the late 90s. The blue and black set is from college in 2007ish, and I got the turquoise-and-white set just this year as an impulse buy. The assorted dice also used to belong to older sets that have been gradually lost until only those remain. I have no idea what brands or makes or whatever any of them are.

That's what I'm saying. In my experience, which granted isn't with d20s, some of the dice have prominent tabs and some of them don't.

Enriched uranium can cause some damage to your eyes through radiation, if your job is to visually inspect fuel pellets. Pretty much any safety goggles will remove that risk. It's the used fuel that is nasty, because then a lot of new, and much more strongly radioactive isotopes have been created.

Completely false.

The only way they could do any damage whatsoever, is MAYBE if you kept them in the same spot on your person every day for years (such as, say, on a keyring), and even THEN only maybe a mild rash over time and maybe a .1% increase in the risk of a few types of cancers, and even then, that's unlikely. It's not more radioactive than your cell phone. The only plausible, and even then highly unlikely, way that it could "fucking kill you" is if there was some kind of manufacturing mistake and the uranium used in it was not properly depleted, and so was much more radioactive than spec.

Back in the 40s and 50s, researchers used to handle cores of plutonium and uranium with their bare hands wearing nothing more than gloves, lab coats, and safety goggles. They subsequently instituted strict safety standards more to prevent fatalities from accidents - such as prompt criticality incidents, which killed a few nuclear fission pioneers - and illnesses from long-term daily exposure. And this was with freaking fissile material, not DU.

Japanese artists have a far higher quality standard than Western art - there's some crappy Pixiv stuff, but there's so much choice when it comes to good art that you barely see it at all. Compared to that, Western art is composed of sketches, WIP, watermarks everywhere, tracing, dramawhoring and just plain bad art. There's a fundamental difference in the work ethic between Japanese and Western artist communities, which ensures that most Japanese artists actually try for skill rather than fame, and don't put out as much half-assed art.

You're right in that if somebody says "AD&D", they're *probably* talking about 2e, but you can't always be sure. They might be talking about AD&D in general (1e and 2e), or even just 1e (though in this case, there will usually be contextual clues). But I'm not quite sure what you're objecting to.

There's little advantage in having a fat blade like that. You don't need extra weight for extra momentum, because lightsabers pretty much slice through everything as it is. And a stab from a lightsaber ends you as it is, so the wider cross-section doesn't avail you much. All you've done is make the sword more unwieldy by making it less aerodynamic and possibly heavier and slower (depending on whether the blade has significant weight or not).

>>37122449
>It's plasma. Neither of these take effect.
In the original trilogy, lightsabers were supposed to be heavy. And of course aerodynamism matters. When you move the lightsaber, you're displacing air. Moving something fat through air is harder, because you have to displace more air. This is especially true if it's light, because you can't build up as much momentum with it.

>> No.37122718

With symbolism. Even though they were held in two hands, they weren't supposed to be literally heavy.
>And of course aerodynamism matters. When you move the lightsaber, you're displacing air.
No, you're not. The blade of a lightsaber is made of plasma. Hell, it doesn't even displace metal, which has far more densely packed atoms - this actually happens and is used to bust open a door on the silver screen.

What do you mean "no, you're not"? Before there was air there and now your lightsaber's there. Unless you're atomically destroying the air molecules or something (which would probably not be very good for you), you're having to push them out of the way with your lightsaber when you swing it.

>> No.37122995

It would still clash with the way regular lightsabers have been done. It's like in classic Doctor Who, where they can magically understand what everybody is saying with no explanation given. In one story, the 5th Doctor is talking to an Ancient Greek, and sure enough, there's no trouble understanding each other. But in the same story, he encounters an Australian Aborigine and suddenly language is an issue. That makes things worse, not better, because now you're paying attention to the problem of language and you're also having to rationalize why he can understand everybody else in the universe except this dude. Same thing with putting seat belts on the Enterprise in whatever movie that was, and with putting a crossguard on a lightsaber.

No, and now there's both air and lightsaber there. It's a fucking plasma. There's substantial space between particles. The air then gets really hot from transfer of energy from the plasma particles of the blade, and from the emitter, which is how a lightsaber works in the first place.

There's definitely a "why doesn't everyone have crossguards?" question, but the answer is pretty obvious: In the old days, jedi had their blades for ritualistic (not practical) purposes.

The lightsabers wouldn't work in space, and would behave differently according to what sort of matter was being turned into plasma. Also, it would be superheating everything around it. If it doesn't move the air molecules out of the way, but they simply pass through the saber, getting really hot while they're inside the saber's blade, then they're still gonna be really fucking hot when the lightsaber has moved on.

I won a poker/craps/casino-general-game kind of set a year back and it had 40 casino cut die in it, 10 of each colour (red blue green yellow) and i have never had a problem with em

Aren't they usually heavy and roll for shit unless you're throwing them at a green felt table?

>> No.37136190

>>37136090
They're certainly heavier than "normal" dice but that's the point. They work just fine in my opinion, keeps 'em off the ground and on the table.

>> No.37136206

>>37136190
I read up on them before deciding not to get them.

A lot of people complained that on any surface that's not soft, like a table at a casino, they break corners really easily from their weight.

They lose their "true randomness" pretty easily that way.

I suppose they're plenty fine if you don't let them fall and break.

There are only 2 things I'm tempted to buy off of that site. Ironwood Dice, and (to a MUCH MUCH greater extent) Soapstone Dice.

GOD those things are pretty, but at the respective densities, they would feel so damn good to roll.

My die collection.
From left to right:
1. "meh" dice I'm willing to lend to players.

5. favourite dice I use most of the time.

DSA, "Das Schwarze Auge". It is a german RPG, loosely translates to "the black eye". I found it in a sale in some store a few years ago.
Also: It's not the colours, I dont like the number prints, and I hate to use dice where the opposing faces dont add up to the dies total faces +1 (for instance opposint sides of a d8 have to add up to 9). This ruffles my autism.
