"And people say I'M stuck in the Seventies!"

--Ron Edwards, realizing that I was using icosahedrons numbered 0-9 twice as d10s.

(Hey, you can still find them at Gamescience if you dig around!)

I have one of those from my old copy of WEG's Air Cav. I think it's awesome -- totally so.

Icosahedron d10 fans repraSENT.

You wouldn't believe these dice. Their colors were all faded and their edges were variably worn down. I wouldn't be surprised if these were the dice Ed used when his first-level fighter got eaten by rats, and he's been trying to make them work right ever since.

And yes, I own dice exactly like that myself.

I'm not sure it was *exactly* like that, Ron. :) Close enough though.

Hey, are there other kinds of d10? ;)

I bought 4 from Gamescience since I think they look cool. Also, one of these days I'm going to use one of my "plus" dice and design something where those means something special.
