RPG a Day: Dice or no dice?

1. Do you prefer to use real dice, a dice application or program, or use a diceless system?

2016-07-10 11.44.34I tend to like using dice types for which I can easily calculate probabilities in my head, such as ten-sided dice pools, two six-sided dice, or Fate/Fudge dice. While some dice apps are nice for online gaming, real dice are generally less fuss to use. The tactile quality can be fun too, though I’m not a dice collector like some of my friends.

But I’m a sucker for nicely illustrated oracle decks and for GM cards! The Everway tarot, the Deck of Fate, Backstory Cards, the Deck of Many Things, those are all catnip for me, not probability-wise in general, but for the visual support, sources of inspiration, and tactile enjoyment.
