Episode 1221: d-iced


Playing groups all have their house rules for what to do when a die lands in an awkward position, cocked on the edge of a book, or fallen on the floor, or what have you. But there is always the fear that one day a die might land in a configuration or position not covered by the existing rules.

The solution of course is to make your dice rules as exhaustive as possible, to cover any conceivable situation! Because being overly prescriptive and pedantic about rules is what gaming is all about!


R2-D2: I'm so nervous. Look, the dice are shaking in my hands.
Chewbacca: Perfect. Next step: Let go of the dice.
[SFX]: roll!!
[SFX]: splash
C-3PO: Do we count that, or is it a reroll?
R2-D2: Sorry sorry sorry...
C-3PO: Either way I need a new drink.
Luke: Yeah, too many pips in the lemonade.
{Han begins glowing, beams of light emerge from his face}
Han: What's happening?!
Leia: Uh oh.
[SFX]: thud! {Han falls out}
Leia: How is he?
Han: —dead!
GM: No, you're alive, but... there's been some damage. <type type>
Han: Hey! It'sa me, Freddo!
Han: Hic!
Chewbacca: Oh, lord.
