In the world of tabletop gaming, a single die isn't going to do you much good -- you need dice sets -- preferably lots of them! Different tabletop RPGs will often require a different type of set, and while none of the standard gaming dice sets ever get you all of the dice you really want (and really, is there such a thing as enough dice?) each of the different dice set types out there give you all the basics that you really need to to game.
7 Dice Sets
7 Dice Sets are used in Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Earthdawn, Call of Cthulhu, Eclipse Phase, many more tabletop games. In fact, the popularity of D&D has cemented the 7-dice set as the standard dice in RPGs. Awesome Dice is proud to bring you these dice sets in a dizzying array of styles including opaque, translucent, metal, and gemstone sets.
10d10 Dice Sets
10d10 Sets were made popular by the World of Darkness Storyteller system. This system is used in Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, Changeling, Wraith, and Aberrant. Also the set is used for the Legends of the Five Rings RPG. A 10d10 dice set includes 10 ten-sided dice. All of the ten-sided dice are numbered 0-9, and do not include the percentile ten-sided dice.
12d6 Dice Sets
While the world of RPGs thrives on many polyhedral dice types, the six-sided dice remain the core dice for many roleplaying and war games. In fact, Shadowrun, Champions, and Obsidian rely exclusively on 6 sided dice. A good 12d6 set will handle almost all the dice rolls for these games. It is rare, but possible, for well-optimized characters to require more than a dozen dice for certain rolls. Here, the solution is to roll the dice multiple times, have more than one 12d6 set, or go with the larger dice pools offered by 36d6 sets.
36d6 Dice Sets
36d6 sets are used in Champions, Warhammer, and are common in wargaming circles. They also have a multitude of uses in other RPGs. Some like to use them when a large d6 dice pool is needed for certain roles that require them. Also, some DMs like to use them to demarcate NPCs during battles.
