Until I can get a sticker set from FFG, I'm looking at some homemade ones for my now-fading dice. (Shoulda protected them before I started playing with them, but that's all water under the bridge now...) Anyway, if anyone needs it, (cuz I couldn't find it in the files or general articles,) here are the faces and their symbols for a set of dice in DOOM.

Key:
= 1 hit (e.g., • • • • = 4 hits)
# = Range in spaces (e.g., 2 = Range of 2 spaces)
X = Complete miss
! = Out of Ammo
/ = Break between faces

Doom Dice Set and Faces: (# for each color in set followed by info for each face on a die)

1 Red Die: / 0 • • • • ! / 1 • • • ! / 1 • • • / 2 • • / 3 • / X /

1 Yellow Die: / 1 • • • / 2 • • / 3 • / 3 • ! / 4 ! / X /

2 Green Dice: / 1 • / 2 • / 2 / 2 / 3 / 3 /

2 Blue Dice: / 0 • • • / 0 • • • / 0 • • / 0 • • / 1 • • / 1 • /


I think that's it. Corrections appreciated!

Thank you for that breakdown. I have seen other lists and tables that described what each die is capable of, but your descriptions pointed out some patterns I had not noticed before.

- The Red and Yellow dice are the same, except that the damage and range values are swapped.

- The Green and Blue dice are the same, except that the damage and range values are swapped.

I had not noticed that, until I read your breakdown.

Thanks!

Why, so it is! I hadn't noticed it either and I know of no mention in the many reviews and overviews of the game. (No, I haven't read them all...)

Wonder what the Descent dice are like...
