120-Sided Dice, For Your Most Hardcore RPG Sessions

Illustration for article titled 120-Sided Dice, For Your Most Hardcore RPG Sessions

There’s now a d120 out there, made by the folks over at The Dice Lab, and while it’d be interesting to see what it could be used for during an RPG session, it certainly looks like a fun gimmick.

The d120 is based on a polyhedron known as the disdyakis triacontahedron. Each face is an elongated triangle. These dice are perfectly numerically balanced, with the same sums for numbers around vertices of the same type.


The video below shows that designing it wasn’t that easy either, because of the numerical balance, and because it actually won’t roll forever.

I still have some d100's that are almost completely round and filled with sand so they eventually stop moving. Those are ridiculous but at least fulfill the roll of percentile die.

What purpose does 120 sides serve? It seems like a vanity item to show off a few times to friends and strangers that would never be used.

Not to say that I don’t appreciate that: I love my awkward d5.
