30 Day challenge - Day 5 - Dice?

This is a strange one for me because honestly for me dice are dice. They are tools or impliments to the story and game at large and so have no value to me outside of that.

Boring I know and I am sorry that I have no story or rationale on why I have some abnormal love of the D1000 (if such a thing even exists). However, what I do have is a favorite set which I often get strange looks for. My favorite set is the the one that came with the final TSR D&D basic boxset which I bought at the Fort Leonardwood PX back in 1999. The dice are crappy plastic, the numbers aren't centered and honestly, they roll like crap. I still use those dice in more games and character creation sessions than any other set I own.

In fact for my upcoming wedding (I have three kids and have been with my fiancee for 10 years and am only NOW getting married) I am having the d20 set in a necklace for my wife to wear as it is blue and will be borrowed :).

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
