So I have a collection of Blank dice. Don’t worry, I remember where the numbers are.
Seriously though, I have stack of them cause its fun to use wet erase markers on them and do whatever you want. The wet erase, or overhead, markers are infinity preferable to dry erase for obvious reasons. before I bought a Big stack of Fudge Dice, I even drew some + and -‘s on them in sharpie. Well I discovered them again mixed in with my blank D8s and was like Waaaaait a minute
.See the funny thing about Fate is that the Dice are Moot, mathematically speaking. They add a cool random element to it that tends to cause interesting moments now and again, but they even out in the long run. This lead me to a weird thought. What if I had a Fate D8?
Now looking at it, it would have your standard 2 +’s 2-‘s 2 Blanks… but what if it also had a ++ and – -? Suddenly a highly improbably Fringe +8 and -8 which is CRAZY, and interesting and might be something I try. It does some interesting things to the odds of getting ++++ and – – – – as well…
It does make the existing ladder a little short both ways, but its got possibilities.
