Here at Tales of a GM, I am running the 12 Days of Dicember project, a way for us to share our love of dice. Each day this month, until the twelfth, there is a new question to spark a conversation about the dice we love. I am now past the mid-point of the project.
What are your dice punishments?
Despite having taken photographs of many dice punishments, I do not really have any. The concept of punishing dice is a common geek trope. I have seen plenty of shamed dice posted on Twitter. Perhaps I do not feel the same emotional connection to the outcome of a dice roll because I am the GM.
The closest I have to a punishment is my habit of rotating out a die when it rolls a 1 or a 20. This gives me a chance to use more of my dice collection. My habit is also intended to show the Players how I am not using a “lucky” die. This ritual is the closest I come to a traditional dice punishment.
How about you?
