## How do you use percentage dice?

If you’re rolling 2d10, then **multiply the tens die’s result by 10** and then add them together. If you’re rolling a d10 and a d%, then you can just add the numbers, because the die has already done the multiplying by 10 for you. Lastly, remember that a zero result means 100, not 0.

## What is the 0 on a d10?

On a d10, the 0 is **a 10**. N=100, On a d100, a 0 (or 000) is 100. N=1000, On a d100, a 0 is 1000.

## How many dice should I have for D&D?

To start playing, you only need one of each: the D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, and D20, but standard **7-dice sets** also include a second D10 which is used for percentile rolls.

## Can you roll 0 on percentile dice?

**You can’t roll a zero**; a 00-0 roll would be a 10. A 00-1 would be a 1. 90-0 is the coveted 100 roll. Sure, a 40-0 roll being a 50 isn’t immediately obvious, but this is the only internally consistent method I can see here.

## Can you roll 100 on a d100?

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.)

## What is 100 sided dice used for?

Zocchihedron is the trademark of a 100-sided die invented by Lou Zocchi, which debuted in 1985. Rather than being a polyhedron, it is more like a ball with 100 flattened planes. It is sometimes called “Zocchi’s Golfball”. Zocchihedra are designed **to handle percentage rolls in games, particularly in role-playing games**.

## How do you read a 10 sided dice?

Ten-sided dice, often sold in pairs (the two are different colors), are most commonly used to roll percentile values — that is, the two dice are rolled together, and the result read **by multiplying one previously designated die as ten times its reading, and adding the other’s reading**. This gives a result from 00 to 99.

## How do you determine hit dice?

In the original 1974 Dungeons & Dragons, a player character’s hit dice are equal to their character level. **A newly-created 1st level character rolls one die** to determine their hit point total.
