"Three of these four statements are true." Obviously, the d13 is the false statement because a 13 sided object with equal faces is impossible.

Funnily, there is also no 26-sided object, at least produced as dice, as I see here.

However, a d13 would be possible by doing it as a column (13 sides around the radius, two unused sides - the top and the bottom). But it would look stupid as hell.

Cheers, LT.

Why not just do 11 around the radius plus the top and bottom?

I'd say "Sandwiches are served" is the false statement. Who in their sane, coherent, right mind would serve sandwiches at a RPG session. The standard fare is beer and poke/sashimi?

Obviously, someone needs to read Emily Post's Hobby Gaming Etiquettes.

Ha! Sandwiches were not served! The devils are messing with our dice. Burn them!

The 15-sided column can be rolled along its length, so you never get the top or bottom. If you include top and bottom as sides, you need to get the ration of sides along the radius and top and bottom in the exact ration, that you have an equal chance to get either side. To do that, you need to add extra sides along the rim, similar to the die shown here.

Doing it the column-way (as here) is much easier, reliable and cheat-proof.

Actually, it is about time. We have long needed something to fill that vast gulf between the d12 and the d20! :rofl:
You know that d16 are out there?

BTW: I love Kevin Cook's homepage... I need to find his ENWorld-thread again...!

Says you. Doritos and Mountain Dew all the way!

Don't worry. It's only for Eberron and the 13th side has vanished...so really it is a 12-sided for all intents and purposes.

Three of the four statements are true. This doesn't mean that the fourth statement is false...

But either way, the really important issue raised by that blog post: is the d13 too anime?

##### First Post
They're clearly trying to do SOMETHING to make the d12 look useful...the only thing that's less useful is a d13!

It's definitely wuxia, and reeks of MMOs.

Maybe, maybe not. Consider:

E2. Evil Baker's Lair
This small, room contains nothing but a table and a bowl doughnuts.

The bowl contains a bakers' dozen (13) doughnuts, one of which has been poisoned by an evil baker (MM 113). If any of the PC's eats a doughnuts at random, roll d13; a roll of '13' indicates that the PC has consumed the poisoned pastry and is exposed to evil baker poison.

EDIT: Also, consider that the greataxe does d12 damage. So the great-greataxe would deal d13 damage.

Sashimi? I like raw fish as much as the next guy, but everyone knows that pizza is the one true gaming food. Repent of your heresy. These raw fish sandwich eaters are going to send the game straight to that non-grandma friendly prison plane.

Lakes of burning fire! The end is nigh!!!!

On the off-chance you weren't joking, read the first sentence of the article again.

Gosh thanks. I didn't even notice that before. Man, what an idiot I must be to have actually believed it.

Just for the record, I'm a huge fan of d16. These dice are great.
