Wow, I just found this thread and Kevins website. Will be exploring there once the stress around the house quiets down (new baby in t-minus overdue!).

But a few questions, though of a consumer variety:

Where might a man buy a huge D20? I saw some in weighted form as beachballs once, but alas, can't find anywhere selling them?

My friend has a D20 the size of a grown man's hand, which he got at a con in the 90's as a prize. Anywhere to purchase such a beast today?

Are you familiar with these foam learning dice? :) http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003IHTZ...TF8&colid=3474LWOQQECJ2&coliid=I1JUUUDJX5USM5

They look pretty cool, but I doubt they are weighted properly. :)

I have never seen such ... I have seen inflatable ... large steel ... and Koplow 55mm ... but not what you are speaking of .. unfortunately

Likely it was later than that ... but I could be wrong .. it sounds like the Koplow 55mm

Sorry, I've been travelling a lot and having a new baby in the family. :)

The jumbo learning dice.. Here's another link, I hope this one works:

Here's an article about the inflatable D20:

I appreciate you taking the time to respond! I'll look to buy a Koplow 55mm.

Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal
Okay, look-for-die question. I play 13th Age, which uses an escalation die. It's a d6 that never gets rolled, just advanced every round. The players add it to their attack rolls.

So I'm looking for a nice looking six sided die numbered 1-6 (preferred to pips) at least 50mm / 2", though smaller than 6". It can be more ornate then a die that survives rolling and I'm not concerned about fairness/balance, but it does need to transport well. And hopefully spend less then $25 in total on.

Any suggestions? I can find large foam dice, or nice looking but expensive dice, but not large and good looking that doesn't break the bank.

$25 and 50 mm ... that would likely have to be foam ... as most plastic is more expensive than $25

Look at the Koplow Games foam d6's

Random Hit Die

Okay so awhile back I found these neat looking Random Hit Die that I think were d6 maybe d8 or d12 and each side of the die had either a little image or wording for Head, Chest, Arms, and Legs. I think they may have been for a zombie style game but I have found the d12 28mm on amazon recently with the wording on them.
