## What are d10 dice used for?

The D10. Much like the D12, the D10 is primarily used to determine damage from specific weapons or spells. Additionally, your two D10s can be used when your Dungeon Master determines that something has a percentage chance of succeeding.

## How do you read a d10?

0 is read as 10 for d10, so 0 should be read as 100 for d100? When rolling 1 die, the ‘0’ is 10. When rolling two dice, the ‘0’ is 0: unless, however, you roll two ‘0”s, in which case the reading is 100 rather than 0. So, with two dice, ‘4’ and ‘0’ is 40.

## What are the d10 numbers?

You can find a number of posts on this in other forums, but the most common usage of percentile dice is that the “0″ on d10 and “00” on a double D10 both represent 0. Thus “90” + “0” equals 90, and “00” + “3” equals 3. The one caveat is that a “00”&”0″ on a D100 represents [1]00, just as a “0” on a d10 represents [1]0.

## Can you roll 100 on percentile dice?

Yes, a d100 is the same as 2d10 with one as the percentile. A d100 goes 1–100, a d10 goes 0-9. Neither allows you to roll a 0, because of the way you count a percentile dice. (00 on the percentile and a 6 on the other dice forms 6, 00 on one and 0 on the other is 100, no option will result in 0.)

## Why is there no 10 on a d10?

There are a couple reasons for this. One is simply cosmetic. With nine single-digit faces and only a single two-digit face, using 0 instead of 10 allows them to print all the faces at a similar large font size.
