    up to give us assignments! Lots of people requested a turn, no one
    asked what (2d10) meant. As promised, here are our taskmasters, in
    order:

    Ken Cashion

    Simon Lee
    Gordon Moat
    Lionel
    Matt Clara

    OK, I bite. Say, Lisa! What does "2d10" mean? (I thought it
    was just a file name for your purposes.)
    Luck of the draw...toss of the coin...whatever...I will be
    a'thinkin' on this and post back poste haste.
    The Rulz state "On Monday morning (or so) the person who's
    turn it is will announce the mandate for that weeks shoot-in."
    I will act on the "(or so)" and announce before Monday morning
    to give working photographers some of this weekend to shoot.
    Look to hear further from me anon.

    Finally! It's dice notation. A d10 is a 10 sided die, 2d10 is two of
    them. Using 2d10, one can instantly generate a random number between 00
    and 99. One die is the tens digit (the lovely lavender one, in this
    case) and the other is the ones digit. In this case, I didn't use the
    excellent Koplow dice, the Nikon of the dice world, but instead used the
    newer Crystal Caste "Porcelain" style dice, the Canon of the dice
    world. And there's more than you probably wanted to know about
    polyhedral dice :)

    ....just what we need ... bait on which dice are better... (no
    coincidence that one has "K" in it and the other "C"'s?)

    IMO the Koplow's have *always* been over rated and Cystal Caste are
    going to take over. The numerical stabilzation from Cystal is available
    in more models than Koplow. Koplow only have three or four stabilized
    dice models out! And the reputation for Koplow backwards compatibility
    is highly exagerated... not all features ... .. .

    From: Lisa Horton
    Or I could lend you my original ghastly brown percentile dice from the basic
    Dungeons and Dragons set, kind of the box brownie of dice!

  10. This should tell you how many closet RPGers there are/were.

    But all else I can say is, you're all in trouble...

    83!

  11. I used to be an RPGer, but then they made me stop blowing things up !!

    or did you mean Role Playing Gamer rather than Rocket Propelled Grenadier ?

    If so I used to be an RPGer until I bought an SLR, but I was never in, nor
    ever came out of, the closet

    ;^)

    My Lord! I just thought dice were those little cubey things
    with dots on them. That is what they use just south of me at the
    coast casinos.
    I don't know how I ever missed out on a study of dice?
    But like a lot of things, it is too late for me to start now.

    The Koplow have always had pretty harsh bokeh too....

  14. I always just used the cheap ones from Games Workshop, but I found they
    wouldn't roll properly when I upgraded my table and got a new one to roll
    them on

    Al Denelsbeck choreographed a chorus line of high-kicking electrons to
    spell out:
    /me on gaming night: "Okay everyone, it's time to roll dice and break
    things."
    But yeah, if we looked at our demographics there might be some
    strange correlations out there :) (Incidentally, here is the longest geek
    test that I've ever seen: http://www.innergeek.us/geek.html )

    Two rolls of a ten sided die? Are/were you an RPG player then?

    Hmmm, Dungeon-Mistress Lisa - I think some people might get the wrong
    idea...
