Geeks with Cash  
I just saw an ad for a Roleplaying Dice Set made from Sterling Silver, for $US100!

What kind of person spends their money on that shit?

Now, how much did you say the latest DnD supplement, Inns, Ale and Wenches: A Drinker's Guide to Faerun, was?

I knew a guy (wargamer) that had a pair of d6 made from jade...

They were advertising them too, but they were much cheaper.

Hey, if I was the CEO of a rather large company and liked to play Dungeons & Dragons, I would probably buy those sterling silver dice.

By the way, are they d6 or what? :P

Obviously you're not a roleplayer.

the standard roleplaying set is:

1d4 1d6 1d8 2d10(percentile) 1d12 1d20

One of each, basically, plus an extra d10 to make a d100.

Sorry. I didn't read that it was a complete set.

But only one 1d6? Then how am I meant to use it for other games as well? ^_^;;

No. I've never roleplayed, obviously. I've always been a little interested, but the whole process of finding people to play with, then learning all the rules, then setting it up and then taking all the time to finish it just seemed a little much.

Well, you can get just d6s in various sized boxes.

If your game needs all the die-sizes (e.g. DnD), you buy a full set, if it needs lots of d6s (e.g. Shadowrun, Warhammer), you buy just d6s.

Well I guess jade comes in many flavours (kinda like gold I guess), but the guy I know paid $50 each so the 2d6 meant that it would have cost the same as the set. Though they were kinda big (about 20mm i think).

I noticed you still have 2 spots open for survivor_online. I was wondering if you were still looking for people, because I'd be game.
