Dungeons and Dragons can be intimidating for new players for many reasons. There are a lot of stats to keep track of, character traits to consider and you better get used to rolling a lot of dice. Well, this custom calculator takes care of your dice rolls for you at least.
It was created by Caleb Everett and will certainly make your game easier and geekier. The software he put together will not only roll the dice, but it also adds up all the faces, saving you some trouble. Caleb wants to add more advanced software features in the future like increasing the likelihood of rolling numbers that haven’t been seen in a while. Although, that kind of defeats the purpose of random dice rolls if you ask me.
Under the hood, it packs an Adafruit Feather M0 Express controller board, a 128 x 32 OLED display, and a 2200 mAh lithium ion battery so it can go anywhere.
Hopefully, it works great in real game situations. You could always use a smartphone dice rolling app, but if you ask me this is much cooler. Now if it could help you to create your character as well, it would be perfect.
