Something I've always wondered was the d30. Ive never seen it used in play or read any rules that use it. Does anyone know any games its used in?

Yes they use an odd assortment, whats the website the suggest using to buy non-standard sided polyhedral dice? I may not have made my question quite clear, I was wondering where it cam from as far as RPGs go.
If you mean, 'where it came from' as in 'who invented them?' it was Lou Zocchi. His company, GameScience, makes funny dice still if you need some.

Goodman Games (publishers of DCC) sell their own of course. Mine are from Impact Miniatures, as those are the ones my local shop stocks.

He did? ... I have been collecting GS dice since 1977 and I never had a d30 ... Would you please show me an example?

The first d30 I ever purchased was in about 1981 and was Armory


I apologize if this sounds condescending ... I do not mean it to be ... I just want to be accurate with my dice history

As to games that use it ... In addition to DCC ... I believe that BUTTON MEN (Button Men) use all denominations of dice

Not at all condescending, it appears I'm wrong.

I had read that Zocchi invented the 'funny dice' that they use in DCC. But I just looked it up and the Zocchi set is not the full DCC chain, as it does not include a d7 or a d30 (it's a d3, d5, d14, d16 and d24).

Thank you ...

As to the DCC sets being designed by Lou (Zocchi) ... it is my understanding that Gamescience was considered for making the DCC sets ... but I know that Impact was used to do so in the end ... and that the designer was Shapeways artist McTrivla
