How to Add Narrative Dice to d20 Systems

How to Add Narrative Dice to d20 Systems As someone who has extensively played Fantasy Flight Game’s Warhammer Fantasy 3rd edition–and even worked on the latest Star Wars roleplaying game lines–I’m a big fan of the custom narrative dice created by Jay Little. The multiple axes of resolution are famous for spurring narrative description at the table and giving people something to do on their turn even if they fail–or...
