Today, I’m going to lighten the mood a little with a silly Ode. This three stanza ode is dedicated to the Die Roll Modifier. I hope you enjoy…or at least get a chuckle…


Clatter and tumble, rattle and rumble
A two, by nature, not so by design
If only for you, this roll I soundly fumble
The cry, raises once, an excited “HEY!”
Away to the chart, the terrain’s in my favor
Could dense wood be my savior?

The dice are capricious, its just in their nature
We grognards crave control
With each single roll
What is an inventive designer to do?
Build in a tool that benefits me or you
The Die Roll Modifier is glory or pain
Did you have too much ale on the brain?
Forgot that the unit was veteran not green
The outcome of this battle remains to be seen

Most every design comes down to the dice
Proud egos are cast or down they are sliced
I cannot imagine a game having none
Accounting for parts means adjusting the sum
So, look upon this
A chart in full glory
To DRMS we praise
Remember them all
Or you’ll surely be sorry
