 Jul 13 awarded Autobiographer May 15 comment Can I substitute a d3 with a d6? @GalacticCowboy: If that were true, dividing a d6 by 6 would still give you a d6 (in reality it gives you a d1). Dividing a d6 by 3 (and rounding up) gives you only two possibilities, 1 or 2, so `d6 / 3 = d2`. Notice that in Thomas's chart, `2: 4,5,6`, but `6/2=3`, not 2. May 15 comment Can I substitute a d3 with a d6? To simulate a d2 with a d6, you say "divide the results in half..", but it should be "divide by 3 (rounded up)".

"The reverse bell curve is what you want, but I'm not sure how to produce it with d6s." - Take a bell curve (ex. sum `n` d6 and subtract `n`), add max/2, mod max. This essentially chops the bell-curve in half, and moves the left-half to the right of the other half. Apr 9 awarded Supporter Apr 9 comment How can I roll a character's age using only d6? This is the usual method to do similar calculations in software-development, and exactly the answer I was going to give. +1 Feb 6 comment What games exist with a focus on travelling between alternate universes?
