Note to self and other game designers: the Pentagonal Icositetrahedron is not really suitable as a die.
So naturally, I designed one before recognizing that simple fact. (Protip: Don’t design when sleep deprived.)
It doesn’t have flat opposing faces, so when it’s at rest, there’s no “top” face to read off, just a triplet of faces. So yeah… Tesh dice design failure #1. Maybe there’s a game mechanic where you’d need 3 values from a D24… so let’s call that a design challenge, maybe. Except, they wouldn’t be three random values, since the same face it’s lying on at rest will always give the same three values.
…I’m not seeing a way out of this.
Oh, well. I’ll use the gearface tech on other suitable polyhedra. And there are some fun ones out there…
Edited to add:
Ah, that’s better. This one will actually work as a die! It’s now for sale, too!
