I use a mixed set of dice customized to the character. The box with Amaryllis, for example, has more d12s than others.


My number of sets grow with each adventure path...


I would so love this dice :)

This die ... It is only a D20, but no complete set

Myfly, if you saw the Artisan Dice and the Wyrmwood Dice Towers, you'd realize saying it is "only" a d20 is not accurate. For shame ...

Pleae post then your magic number...


Crystal Caste made a whole set of dice from mammoth ivory as one of their yearly Gen Con sets.

I'd be happy with "just" a d20, though. :)

(I loved woolly mammoths when I was a kid.)


Guys,

U habe to tell the beginners why you need more than 8 sets for the base set...?

Do I need more than 8 sets? Heck no. Even without rerolling dice, I could probably get by with 4 or 5. Why stop there though? I have more dice than I'll ever need of various sizes, designs, and materials (love my steel dwarven dice), and I'm totally OK with that. When I sit down for PACG I empty multiple dice bags and cups, just for myself. So does everyone else at the table.

Who needs sets? I go by the pound.


I use 6 sets, original blue, 5 black sets and a red d10 per player to remember modifiers for the current roll.

I'm actually really surprised I've never bought a pound o' dice Vic. I like dice that have something unique about them though, so I've mostly been building my collection with things like Steel Dwarven Dice, Silver Griphons, and the like.

Actually, I've never bought a pound 'o dice either. I've just accumulated a box full of dice that looks like I've bought a couple.

Haha yea that's one or two people in our group. Bought a bunch of sets, mixed them together, and any time we start something that stretches over time (an RPG campaign, PACG, whatever), he'll sort through probably 5-10 pounds of dice of various types and styles to find a few matching sets to use. He inevitably picks at least one set that is missing the d4 and / or d6 -- which are most important because he's always a caster who loves Fireball and Magic Missile.


Hey Vic,

Sounds like you created a new Paizo shop item:

1 pound of dice

I know how heavy it is regarding dhipping costs, but what would be paizos price tag?

Did you even check his link? It's $31.48 during the summer sale, $34.98 otherwise. Dice are manufactured by Chessex, so decent quality, although dice in the pound o dice bag are (almost) all factory seconds due to cosmetic issues -- they'll all roll normally but some of them may look funky.

Plus there are Chessex locations in Europe so it would be cheaper to deal directly with Chessex than buying the same product thru Paizo. btw, Paizo has been selling that item for a while. (For Pathfinder RPG …)

Pound of Dice is a chessex thing, Vic posted a link to it ...

I use 12 dice sets. And even with that many sets, if we play with more than 2 people we still end up passing dice around =/


We sometimes use a d2 for certain arbitrary selections... whoever has a coin handy..


While I don't know the number of sets I have, I do know that they include the S&S, Wrath, and Mummy's Mask sets


I did not know yet, that every adventure path has its own dice sets...

Why are these not connected with PACG store paths?

Why are those not in the game box, but generic boring blue ones?
The latter is the question of the day!
Cant wait to get a Skeletor answer LOL

So, my Fiancee got me the S&S dice set when we started playing S&S. It is a 7 die set (d4, d6, d8, 2x d10 [percentile], d12, d20). The dice are kinda neat, with the skull replacing the high number, but they are hard to read. Also, S&S doesn't require the d20.

I think your average player would rather have boring but easy to read dice; if you want special dice, buy the accessory. They are also made by Q Workshop and licensed by Paizo, so I expect including them in Base Sets would raise the price of the set; I just don't have a feel for how much.

First, you do realize that the Adventure Paths are mainly RPG, right? That the partnership between Paizo and Q-Workshop is for creating dice sets for those Adventure Paths. (And not the PACG.)

Second, Vic has already answered your question about why those dice in the sets. Paizo is not in the dice business. They put an appropriate set of dice in the box. They're blue.

Third, not every Adventure Path has its own dice set. There are plenty of Adventure Paths.

Dice sets are available under licensed products since they're licensed and not manufactured by Paizo. And you'll notice, like I said, that not all the Adventure Paths are represented although most are.

I use 2 sets/player...helps with having to pass around too many dice most of the time. Occasionally someone will bust out a huge pool and need more, but 2/player works for 90% of the time.

I usually use three sets of the standard D&D layout. Yes, the d20s are not used and I have more d10s but it works well for many characters. My preference is for a color scheme that matches the character, v t I am usually only partially matched up to that goal. The themed Adventure Path dice sets are too busy for my taste. That is something I have noticed about many themed dice sets. I wish we saw more alternate fonts with a symbol for the high face.

Oh, and for my sets ...

Since I run multiple sessions of OP, I still use 10 each of d4 (yellow), d6 (purple), d8 (red), d10 (blue) and d12 (green) and 3 d20s (white). I have tried the Koplow dice and the Chessex dice. All solid colors; opaque. I prefer the colors of the Chessex solids. So when people need to roll a d8, we can say "grab the red one", etc. Makes for easy learning and easy recognition. They're always consistent.

For my personal bag, I have the Koplow dice I didn't like. Same colors but just different hues. And the numbers vary but I have more than 4 sets of each in the bag plus 3 white d20s.

In each bag is also a pirate-themed d6 for plunder. And in my personal bag, I also carry 4 white d6 with pips just in case I need to roll up and RPG character.


I bought two Chessex sets, then grabbed some extra d4, d6, and d10 as needed. Zarlova likes those d10. :) I'm now playing characters who have d8s, so I need to grab some d8. I like all of my dice to match, and it pains me that a bunch of them don't, but I needed more d4 and d6. :(

I think I have about 6 sets or so. When I'm with Calthaer in our 6 player group, we probably have more like 10. Each player has their own set, plus a bunch of extras in a central pool. And of course, in S&S, one premium plunder die.

I mostly play with RPG players, so they're accustomed to bringing their own dice. I took the sets that came with RotR, S&S, and WotR and leave them in the WotR box for lending out to OP if anyone needs them.

We each have 2 sets when we play and then we leave 2 additional sets in the box for any further use.

I got this set because it helps people especially spot the difference between a d8 and a d10. Plus the premium plunder die, just because.

Some of you might recall that I mentioned most dice manufacturers use the same die molds, including the company that makes the dice for PACG and our Beginner Box. Oddly, only *some* of those dice are from that standard mold. (The easiest way to tell is to look at the shapes of the "3" and the serifs on the "1")

Because they're a full set of 7 RPG dice, and if we put them in the PACG section, some people would be confused about why they all have a d10 numbered in tens, and why the RotR and Wrath sets have a d20.

Because it would make our $60 game a $70 game.

I also find the Q-Workshop dice beautiful to look at, but often hard to read. I greatly prefer plain dice these days.


First off I used some gold Silver and Copper dice I found on Amazon.

Gold, Silver Bronze Polyhedral Dice _ Set of 30 Dice

I got sick of those after a while so I've been buying up the sets that look like so

Polyhedral 7-Die Gemini Dice Set - Gold-Green with White CHX26425

With green as the underlying theme color. Have 5 sets so far


I'm old school. I use Game Science dice, sometimes even the old d20s that were marked 0-9 twice-- so they can be d10s as well . We generally play 2 characters each. And use 2 sets per character, so 4 sets.

Also old school ... my PACG dice are separate from my RPG dice. Never the two shall mix!

Grand Lodge

I personally use 6 sets of dice just for myself.

The other players all bring their own dice, usually around 2-3 sets per player.

So all together, our table has about 10-14 aets of dice at a time, depending on the number of players.
