What is D10?

D10. Tabletop gamer "shorthand die notation" for "one-ten-sided-die." Shorthand, because we, as gamers, drop the superfluous "one" and just say "dee-ten." If we wanted to roll two D10, then the long form would be used, 2d10.

The category is more of a nod to the primary die-type my favorite RPG, Warhammer Fantasy Role Play. Die-type, not the typical die roll WFRP uses. That's a D100, or sometimes called, "percentile dice."

Confused yet? Don't be. It's not important to the category topic. D10 will typically find posts on my gaming or plans for gaming. I'm currently the DUNGEON MASTER!, best stated with the emphasis on the "TER!" in Master, for a D&D 5e—that's Fifth Edition—campaign.

It's currently my favorite edition of D&D next to BECMI, a.k.a. B/X or Rules Cyclopedia. BECMI is short for Basic, Expert, Companion, Master, Immortal, the "Basic D&D" sets c. 1984. These boxes followed the B/X boxes and were collected in the case bound Rules Cyclopedia.

I hope to be posting more here about games and gaming in the coming weeks and months!
