Pen-and-paper role-playing games involve rolling dice to determine outcomes and sometimes (OK, almost always), said dice hate you and everything you stand for. It’s time to pay them back for their sinister ways and what better method to use than shaming?
A post on the Tumblr blog “Schneiltzle” kicked things off with the above gem. If you can’t see the image it’s basically a 20-sided die (commonly referred to as a d20) with the following message:
I left my owner on fire for five turns and proceeded to fail a save against petrification.
Which sounds about right. Inspired by this tale of polyhedral woe, this thread popped up over at Screenburn featuring additional accusatory postings.
Of course, there was this more rational contribution.
I’m not convinced. I know my dice scheme my downfall while hiding in their carry pouch.
