While this isn’t equivalent to a d12 if you just add the numbers up, you can use this as a d12. Start with the number on the outer die, then add 6 if the die on the inside is 4, 5, or 6.

Umm... Actually it's 2d6, the probability that it lands on a particular number is way different. For example the probability to land a 2 or 12 is slightly below 3% and to get a 9 or a 5 is just above 11% whereas a d12 has a 8.333...% chance for any given result.

people are talking about how it's "technically a 2d6" and all that stuff, except for that one comment saying how to actually use it as a 1-12 rngenerator, but everyone's not realising that the outer dice has potential to be used as an, although inefficient, cheater's dice thanks to the inside dice throwing the weight around in different directions.

I know people who will be legitimately upset if you call that a d12. That right there is a 2d6, and there is a difference.

It’s me. I’m people.

A d12 must be able to return a 1, 2d6 is incapable of that.

Its a d12 with a 7 thats significantly larger than any other side

Only if you where at my game, i told you to roll a d12, and you rolled this. I would legitimately be upset by that.

Yeah, unlike a d12, you are way more likely to roll a number in the middle than a very high number or a very low number:

I too came here to slap this fool.

But there is a difference. In the probability of the outcomes

Yeah, 2d6 instead of 1D12 does change the odds a lot

I used to have a die like this that I bought from the school bookfair when I was 9. It was purple and very cool, I miss her so much.

I'm sorry for your loss

telling this to my DM

but can you roll 2d6 on a d12?

that's a very creative solution, good work

Counterpoint: it's impossible to roll a 1, throwing off all the probability of other combinations

Is there a point when the influence from the inner die is totally unpredictable?

Use it as a d36 by subtracting 1 from the outer number, multiplying it by 6, and then adding the inner number.

🤔

Ok I will

tbh i would go for a better active, its not that bad but imo its only useful in niche situations.

they actually picked up the d6 with car battery

Wish Edmund would buff it

Thats a really fucking cool die.

Ackshually it’s a D11 since it has 11 possible numbers(2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12)

It's not a d11 actually since it's not balanced correctly (🤓)

D12 Purple Pills but dice and red

This can be used as a d36 which can be used as a d12. So um actually it could be a d12

I mean, I suppose you could make the argument that it's a d36. Which could be treated as a d12 if you divide by 3 and round up.

I thought that was Domo-kun for a second

d36

Oh shit I actually have one of these somewhere

2d6

Casually loads dice with more dice

honestly, if the middle is hollow that could work

Go ahead, roll a 1

i though it was a D12 ref

Knock knock who’s there it’s my childhood

This is cooler than a normal d12 ngl
