We had so much to say about dice mechanics last week that we could have made it into two episodes. So, we did! Welcome to part two, where Chris describes a system so weird it sounds like an April Fools’ joke, Oren revels in rolling a bucket of dice, Wes relives the terror of Call of Cthulhu dice, and we all scratch our heads at THAC0. We talk about when an unconventional dice mechanic is actually justified and when you’re just confusing your players. Plus, the difference between Call of Cthulhu and the Basic Roleplaying System. Bet you’ve all been dying to know that one.
