I remember hearing at some point of electric D100's… you shake it and a little digital screen shows a random number between 1 and 100. I've also seen an interesting D66 die which was a large clear D6 with a small opaque one inside it. Maybe something like that would be more practical for a D100 if somone ever finds a really good use for one.

Never heard of d100 before.
Probably would be hard to determine the up-facing side. :sad:


I would think so. If you want a picture of a D100, look here.

A roleplayer friend of mine once had a D100 - we called it the "golf ball". If you really need to use the full range of 1-100 (and there are games that do) just use 2 D10. One for the tens, one for the ones. Often written as D%.

There is no practical purpose for the D100, just too unwieldy.

I have seen a couple of D30's, as well. Never come across a game that used one, but a different roleplayer friend of mine used it in his home-grown system.

That thing looks awkward!
Does the one in the link even have any corners?

Has anyone ever figured out what to do with a d30? I bought a few just for the fun of it but is there just ONE system out there that acknowledges its existence?

Also, d100s are bloody stupid.


There's an old swedish semi-official system that uses the d30 in chracter creation.

The original Helden des Schwarzen Auge only used d20:s and a very good stat system. I cannot remember very much more since german is not my primary language and it was many, many years ago.
