    @Sniper:
    And how was I supposed to know that this:
    was about the d30? :shake: There was no "@Felinoid:" or anything else (like mentioning the d30) that indicated that you even knew what thread you were posting in. I just shrugged it off as a random spam, which in hindsight I can see was wrong, but can you really blame me? :hahaerr:

    I voted d12 - anything with more sides than that is getting too rounded, the d6 is too conventional, and with their pointiness the d4/8/10s just don't roll well.

    How can anyone have just one favorite? I like them all. That's the fun of having so many dice. I have 8 full sets and if my wife didn't glare at me everytime I ask for more, I would have 80. It's great listening to everyone in my gaming group groan when I ask "oh crap, was this the dice I'm using for saves, or initiative?

    The d20 rules my soul! But, I wonder how far can you go with dies? d200? d500? d1000? Or maybe I just had too much :beer:

    More votes which means another poll update,

    d20 leads all at 30%
    d12 is second at 26%
    d4 and d10 tie for third at 11%
    d8 holds fourth at 7%
    d2, d6, d30 and d100 are last at 4%

    @Johan boo - Yeah, having individual dice for rolling initiative, saves, skills, etc. is uber geeky. :thumb: I just have a lot 'cuz their pretty.
