Like a d100
only more so.
is a roll used ocasionaly in some RPGs
. It is almost always generated by rolling 3 differntly coloured d10
, having stated each colour is either the hundreds, tens, or units digit. Alternatively, if you are a so cool as to have one, roll a physical d100
for tens and units, and a d10 as the hundreds digit. The d1000 is usualy only used for very large randomization
tables, or for large tables where having significantly
different ranges for different results is considered to be important.
For example Men & Supermen
contains the following table for generating blood type
001-384 O Positive
385-461 O Negative
462-784 A Positive
785-849 A Negative
850-943 B Positive
944-960 B Negative
961-992 AB Positive
993-999 AB Negative
Let's say i have red
d10. I say that red is hundreds, blue is tens, and green is units. I roll the dice and get 9 on the red, 5 on the blue and 0 on the units. This gives 950, which is B negative; my
blood group IRL
, if you care. A d100 roll would not suffice
for this as AB- and mutated are so rare. Although it could be done with a d100 and subtables
, it's more effort.
AFAIK a physical manifestation
of the d1000 does not exist. It's possible one's been made, but it would be football
sized, need a huge surface to roll it on, and probably not be fair.
