This Skanven player at the Games Workshop, I swear hes using slanted dice for his ratling gun. First off he has special dice for firing it and each is a differnt color. The same color almost always rolls the same number like 80% of the time. We dont have enouph proff for the GW guys to kick him out but he always get at 14+ shots from his ratling guns and its completly broken.
We need suggestions on how to handle this, we cant refuse to play vs. him either since he is invading us in the Lustria Campaign. If we go to expand out territory and he is there we have to unless we can get him kicked out.
If you're bold enough to acuse him of cheating then you can balance the die(dice).
I believe that the following will work:
If you drop the die in water, then the heavier side should rotate and face the bottom when it has sunk (NOTE: You must drop the die by holding it such that it MUST turn). Or if the die floats, the lighter side will always face up when it floats.
Or ask to borrow his die when rolling and see if the results are the same.
Dreams give us a vision of a world unlike any we have seen. They present us with a glimpse of a better life; a goal to aspire to, and in the face of insurmountable odds, they provide us with the power to overcome, to live on, and to succeed where we would have otherwise failed.
i would go for a direct approach.
Ask him to change dice, if he refuses, then he has to aswer what's the reason. don't be overly specific on who is aquising him of cheating. :mad:
if he refuses to change dice and has no valid reason, then i think there is a strong indication he actually is cheating. bring one of your own along, and let him throw that one. no excuse that he needs that specific type of dice. or ask the storekeeper to lend you that type of dice.
(missed the previous post: interesting idea, the water will slow the decend.)
I agree with vindicator. Get him to use your dice. If he doesn't then he'll need an excuse. He can't just say that they're his 'lucky dice' and if he does call the staff. He shouldn't refuse. Don't even say hes cheating, just say that you don't want to play against people that don't use store dice. Say it's your policy or that it's your right. Say some people might try to use s;lanted dice. If he says that he definitely doesn't use slanted dice ask him if he'll prove it. Your not saying that you think he's cheating, you're just saying that you don't trust people that use their own dice incase people that do this in general do cheat.
"DICE FOR THE DICE GOD!"
And the almighty Dice God said to his followers "Thou shalt not speak ye words "anything but a one" For thou whoever'st speaketh this blasphemy will be cursed with thy rolls being of one".
good recap, nice wording. mine would have been to 'harsh'. better go with Zed's approach. unless you want to have a high risk for a quarrle or fistfight. :o
However you approach this situation, it has the potential to become extremely nasty. I agree with the above: there is no reason that he would use specific dice just for a single weapon, except for the fact that they are slanted or that he's an extremely superstitious player. More than likely hes just found that of all his dice for whatever reason, they have the tendancy to roll better than others.....but then hed be using them all the time. I play D&D as well as WH40k, and I have one d20 that i use for skill checks, and one that I almost never use because it seems to be cursed.
See if he would be willing to use store dice or someone else's dice, or even his regular dice. If not, if he becomes really unreasonable about it, then I think you would have some ground to stand on when complaining to the staff.
While we're on the topic of slanted dice:
If anyone here is in the habit of buying chessex dice, then one good thing to do when you first purchase them is to take them and turn them over and make sure they are all legal.
I bought a thing of frosted blue dice once for my SM army and about after two weeks of using them, I found out that several of them were misprints. Three or four of them had no four, but instead had two fives. A couple of them had two sides that were both twos and no fours.
I always thought Chessex was a very good die making company, but now I check every single die they sell before I take it to a game cause I would hate to be accused of cheating.
