    My personal favourite are the "all or nothing" dice. They are dice that consistently roll 1-3 or 17-20. Great for comedic players who love dramatic and unexpected outcomes, or gamblers who couldn't find a super prodigy but are willing to settle for 50%.

    Alright I know this is gonna start a flame war where people talk about the fake fallacy "gambler's fallacy" but that bit about rolling out consecutive bad numbers before a game is real. If your rolling technique is consistent and the outcomes are varried then you are statistically less likely to roll low numbers in a row and the more in a row the more likely a high roll becomes. This is real. Imagine flipping a coin and getting heads 10 times in a row. Doesn't happen. If you flip a heads more than 3 times you need to start assuming the next outcome is tails, that you suck at flipping, or that the coin is rigged.

    • Hetsin

      @Robin Parmentier Absolutely correct, the chance of ANY specific combination of 10 coin flips is about 1 in 1000, standard assumptions of fairness applied. HTHTHTHTHT is equally as likely as THTHTHTHTH at occurring at about 1 in 1000. So the chance of HHHHHHHHHH is 1 in 1000, as is HHHHHHHHHT. Since those are the only two possible outcomes after 10 coin flips and they have an equal chance of happening, that make the chances of the final coin flip (1/1000)/(1/1000) or 50/50. And frankly, after about the 7th flip of Heads I'd be assuming it's a loaded coin.

    The dice I regularly roll with is a shy piece of dice that seems to like me (albeit shyly), but was a lower roller for all previous owners. I already knew this. Tested it anyway. The other d20 I still own, I wasn't sure what would happen- the result I've found is it is a diamond in the rough. (mostly rolls higher, and seldom rolls low)

    I don't believe in luck... but I do have a lucky dice. Maybe even a legendary lucky dice. It's a pretty plain d20, completely transparent, no color, but some iridescent sparkles inside. It got it's legendary status when my playgroup decided to play some 3.5. I was on fire, and hadn't rolled anything under a 15 for the opening combat, even managing to score 2 natural 20's. When a player needed to make a pivotal saving throw, they asked if they could use my dice to roll, and succeeded easily. One by one, players took turn passing the dice around table, and the dice remained strong, never dipping below a 12. Even the DM took the dice, and he rolled them frivolously on the table until he got a 7 and a 5 to show up, just to see how long the dice's luck would hold out. Nevertheless, the dice were passed around the table the whole night, and not a single attack missed, or save failed, for as long as it was rolled that night. The session ended with a lot of happy memories, as we witnessed what was essentially a statistical miracle. The dice hasn't had a night like that since, and our playgroup disbanded, but the dice remains a symbol of godly luck in my heart.

    Finally someone who treats gambling like I do, but I think you forgot one, the drunk mimic. It shows a pattern of one of the others, but if you don't use it often, it get lonely, and as a result it drunkenly stumbles to random (usually low) numbers. Remember to keep your dice company for the off chance of a mimic

    I have about 3 sets of dice. 2 where given as a gift and 1 (my frist set) I got myself when I got into d&d. And it’s been faithful. My frist proper d&d character was an orcish paladin, a brutal encore who abused his power and seemed out heretics in the name of his god. This character had a love for kicking in doors and making an entrance. Every time he kicked a door, a Nat 20 was rolled. With 1 exception. The very frist time he did it in game he rolled a 1. The door was kicked open with such force it bounced off a wall and swung the other way, knocking the orc to the floor. It was humbling

    17 years ago I had a Silver D20 best one I ever had, I'm talking 12+ and only rolled lower on pointless checks. Until I lent it to a friend along with some other random die, who had no die of his own, so he could try and DM some of his friends, Whats the harm I thought? However, when it returned the D20 was never the same, it would never again roll past an 8 for me. I was young and stupid, don't be like me! don't let the ones important to you out of your sight.

      It's one of two dice, but you won't know which it is until you play with it, but whichever it is, it's sending a message to you. The first is the order die. Order dice are as close to truly random you can get. They will roll high and low near equally and will not change based on the situation. They communicate this to you by showing the extremes on both ends, showing you that both sides are equally possible and that neither side is barred. These Dice are great for rules lawyers and GMs who want a truly fair and random outcome. The second, is the chaos die. This die feeds on yours and your party's reactions and is prepared to do whatever it takes to make a situation go from bad to worst (not worse, WORST) or help you get that one in a million play. You will either fail spectacularly or shine like a star, whatever causes the biggest reaction is what they will give you. They tend to stay towards extremes in crucial moments and tend to roll middle of the road the rest of the time, though they may mix it up to create a bit of chaos. Some are more malicious and others more benevolent, but one thing is for sure. This die will make sure you remember the times you used it, and it shows you the extremes because it wants to use them.

    I have played a lot of table top games, I happen to know that 6 sided dice from the game Axis and Allies will have dice that consistently roll high 5+ when rolled in groups. These have been my preferred dice for tournaments of Warhammer 40K, while said 6 sided dice from W40K are amazing for games of Axis and Allies when you need to roll 1's and 2's in large groups.....So yes I completely understand the whole idea of dice personality.

    For those of us in the pandemic and forced to use Discord Dice Bots: Be wary. They are either absolutely amazing and will bless your party with fantastic rolls, or laugh at your face with nothing but low rolls in the most important of scenarios, and there is NO in-between. I'm not talking about rolling a lot of 1's, I'm talking about you having an average roll of 9.3 per 100 rolls because the dice bot hates you, and ONLY YOU! Rolling nothing but numbers below 10 for a solid 3 sessions in a row. Doing minimal damage despite being a DPS class. BEING COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY WORTHLESS TO YOUR PARTY BECAUSE YOU CANNOT ROLL ABOVE A SIX! (I am positive DiceParser hates me, I averaged all my D20 rolls and had that 9.3 show up and laugh at me...).

It was quickly purged by my players and replaced with a new, more favorable dice bot. It's ghostly messages remain in the archives of the dice channel, serving as a warning to all bots that have come after it.

    As someone who enjoys collecting unique and interesting dice, playing cards, and other game pieces, this speaks to me on a personal level. Though, you neglected to mention one of the most important dice personalities: The Wild Die. For me, Wild Dice are very real, and do exist. They tend to roll fairly average, but always spike one way or the other depending on the whims of the story. They're actors to the core, and no matter whether you succeed or fail, they always put on a show. Also, Dice Rollers are evil. Pure, unadulterated, Evil.

    First D20 i ever genuinely owned was gifted to me by one of my game mates. well... when i was just starting, i had none, so he let me pick one of his for the evening. it was beautifully black/green with swirls and black numbers. not that easy to read but i loved the mysterious and dark air about it. we played many games together and i always got him to lend that one die to me for the games. some time later and i got into a shop with the express plan to get a die and trade for that marble one from my friend. i begged and he thankfully agreed and that day i knew that i owned my first and best die forever. I have it in my die box, and it's always used when something important must happen. if i ever play again, this will be my main die once more.

    Great video. I suggest to do d6 next, due to being the very weirdest dice. They are the 2nd lowest dice but still the rng feels incredibly high. Also they are the most used outside of dnd.

    My party has a weird quirk. Against BBEGs and high level monsters, we roll like gods. 4 level 3s curbstomped an adolescent green dragon without taking a single hit. But an animated stick? Damn near kills the whole party. One time our DM, as a joke, put 8 animated sticks in a single room. We looked at each other and said "twas a pleasure guys. This may be it"

      Now that I think about it, they were trickster dice. They constantly matched DCs exactly. As a rookie DM, I didn't know what was supposed to happen when a roll matched the DC. I was so confident in the 21 I rolled for goblin stealth, and it was shattered by a 21 for perception by one of my players. It even became a running joke at the table that night because it happened 3 more times in as many hours.

      @MisterGunpowder It's a traitor. It lured you in with some good roles, only to finish you off during your death-saves

      @ymmij X This was my first set. Dice of pure white, to truly hide their intentions. They were used well; I was playing a Wild Magic Sorcerer in 4e. We all figured, 'Oh, 1s make your character let out a concussive blast that pushes everything around you. That's funny, but we're not going to see that often.' And so, the d20 went to work. I damn near blasted our wizard *straight* off the bridge we were fighting on. I was told in no uncertain terms to never be anywhere near him during a fight after that. I destroyed a dock. One time, it happened three times during a fight. And then, for another character, it gave me a 1, a 1, a 2, then a 1 on death saving throws. (The DM was being merciful and let me try to save against the first 1. Didn't happen.) These were trickster dice, however, and rolled high often enough in important situations to make me desire to keep using them. I will never know if it truly was a trickster die, or a particularly devious traitor. I do not know where those dice ended up. I believe I may have lost them at a convention. Perhaps they passed into the hands of another, to work their way with them. I will never know.

      Of course because gamers never die, they respawn as dice so that the gamer race lives on forever throughout history.

      @bilinas mini well with a d20 it'll usually (assuming the weight is off) favor a cluster of 3 or 4 numbers

      manufacturing inconsistencies into account. These things can, in fact, cause a die to land on one or two numbers more often than others.
