Durp! Wow, what an oversight!! Didn't even think about it - thanks for enlightening me before I embarrassed myself at a game tableGnomeBoy wrote: Ah, yes, but multiplying is not how it works. To wit:
So your suggested multiplying, with a d8 would give a range of results like: 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 6, 7, 8, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16. (Might be useful for something, I suppose.)
Anyhow, I just want to give a huge THANKS to everyone on this thread/in this forum who gave awesome recommendations about using Crayons to fill in dice numbers on dice molds. I had just ordered a pound of Zocchi dice before ever seeing this thread, then I read this thread earlier this week, and when my dice came, none of them were colored - I was surprised to see this, but, thanks to this thread, I was well-prepared!
In fact, I found it very centering to color in my own dice and my family kept telling me how cool they look, so, I may always order my dice like this (but never again a whole pound - that was rediculous). Here's a pic:
So thanks to all you old-schoolers out there for passing this super valuable crayon-technique on to a noob I would have been totally lost if I didn't read this.
Also, for anyone interested, the pound of Zocchi dice from Game Science included no d3, d5, d7, d14, d16, d24 - I'm pretty sure I recall Goodman calling the odd dice used in DCC "Zocchi Dice", but I think "Zocchi Dice" really just refers to Game Science's dice in general. I was super bummed that I didn't get any odd dice that would be used in DCC (I did get some weird ones that I've never seen, like d20s that had two sets of 10 and d50, d100 but that were intervals of 10).
Anyhow, thanks everyone!
