So, if you bought an ancient Roman d20, what game would you use it with?

Because, apparently, we geeks don't always read others' posts before posting (I'm as guilty as the next), we have seen a number of threads about the Roman gaming die: here, here, here, and here.



Now that we all know about it, the question: If you had been the one to spend $17k, what game would you use it with?

The obvious choice. I put this game here because I couldn't find an entry for the RPG. Too bad there wasn't also some ancient Roman d4's and d10's.

I'd eat it and then wait to poop it out. Hopefully I could time a D&D event around the stone deuce so that I could roll a weapon or something with it.

...because it certainly couldn't roll any worse than the D20 that came with the game.

This would be a great game to play with it. Both the die and the expansion are inaccessible to the common person right now.

I would use it as the crash die. During play of the game, the numbers don't matter on the black die that comes with it, only the '20' does. Sure, there is a roll-off in the beginning using the black die, but that could be done with a different die.

oh, and here are some more Roman dice.....
