1d2 can be resolved by flip of coin or d-any (odd = 1, even = 2), or d-any (1 through half the total of the die = 1, other half =2).ScootyPoot wrote:I actually feel really dumb for asking this question. But what does it mean when it says "1d2" or "1d3"? I don't recall ever seeing a 2 or 3 sided dice. Now I haven't driven the 40 minutes to the gaming shop to find out, but I figured I would ask before I did. At least if there are 2 and 3 sided, I won't be on an hour and half fool's errand.
1d3 = d6 (1-2 =1, 3-4 =2, 5-6 =3), or d6 (half result rounding up), or similar divisions via d12 (1-4, 5-8, 9-12).
d5 = d10 (1-2=1, 3-4=2... etc. you get the point).
there are other weird die rolls like 2-20 via d8+d12 so that the median roll is expected (often used in some encounter tables).
Bear in mind also, that there are specialty die for some of these such as d6 numbered as 1 to 3 twice, etc. So you could spend cash for such, but it isn't really necessary.
