10:33 am - Discordian divniation . . .
I've recently gone back to looking at the rune dice I have, and am looking at the next Chronarchy.Com update with the possibility of selling them in the near future.

I should point out, though, that everyone already owns an amazing divination tool: Discordian Dice Divination.

You take a six-sided die and roll it. Depending on the number you roll, you compare it against the below chart to determine what the outcome should be:

1Think for yourself, schmuck
2Think for yourself, schmuck
3Think for yourself, schmuck
4Think for yourself, schmuck
5Think for yourself, schmuck
6Think for yourself, schmuck

And Lo, the angel did appear before them, and spake: "Dude, who am I? Your mother?"

Well, sorta. I've been working at this for a long time, and there are a couple of things that pose issues of randomness when you have a set of four six-sided dice. In particular, while you can roll them all at once, because there are a fixed number of runes on each die (which will not appear on other die at random, though it would be cool if they would), you're going to find yourself with too few combinations.

One particular way of solving this is to provide a total of 12 dice, which you can pull three die out and cast them (together or individually) to obtain your answers.

So, if I do end up selling, there'll be a "basic" set of four dice and a "deluxe" set of 12 dice in order to make things a bit easier.

I'm not up on my runes, but....

Sounds like you need 24-sided dice.

I figure you can either go cheap and use a correspondence key (like your "think for yourself" chart), or you can file off the numbers and carve in the runes (maybe with a Dremel?). Just be sure to have a steady hand and a vise!
