    Darned if I can remember enough key terms/phrases to look it up on Google, though.
    LOL ... I had never heard that ... if anyone has a link ... please let me know so I can include it in my links section

    How much do you think are dice that get thrown into bodies of water when they roll badly, eventually finding their way into the oceans, contribute to the raise of the Mean Sea Level in the last 30 years?

    Seriously: How many dice are in that collection now?

    Erik Mona:
    Our new world is large enough to handle several styles of play, including this one.

    There's really no reason to force everyone into playing the same campaign. Every DM has different tastes, and a good campaign setting allows him to find something that speaks to him and to his play style.

    The Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting is all about options, not about dictating a single way to play D&D.

    No clue ... All I know is that I have never contributed to the 'Davy Jones' Locker Dice Collection'

    standard dice are how big?

    I see 30mm dice and 55 mm dice, and little bitty dice, but, for comparisons sake, what is the standard size for RPG dice, say, those found in the D&D adventure game or most FLGS?

    A standard polyhedral set of dice has no one size as the shapes demand different sizes

    Traditionally the size of a poly set is measured by the face to face measurement of the D20 ... in which case 16mm is the standard size
