Just to show that DCC doesn't have the corner of the market on "funky dice" there's a thread on the WotC boards
where a guy is complaining that the 5E "advantage / disadvantage" system is unfair to players who need two
d20's in their polyhedral dice set.
He's suggesting that WotC needs to sell special polyhedral sets with two d20's in them in the future.
Really? And we thought we had problem finding funky dice!
If you're not familliar with the proposed "advantage / disadvantage" rule is that if a character has the advantage he rolls 2d20 and keeps the better one, but if he's at a disadvantage he rolls 2d20 and keeps the worst one.
