Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Dice are a recurring weapon type in the Final Fantasy series, affiliated with the Gambler job class.

Contents

Appearances

Final Fantasy VI

Dice are one of the primary weapons used by Setzer Gabbiani, the others being Cards and Darts. The first set of Dice available has a Battle Power of 1, and is purchased in Kohlingen in the World of Ruin. When equipped, two dice roll onto the battle screen. The damage they deal to the target is equal to Setzer's level doubled times the rolls of each die. The numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 each have a 3/16 chance of appearing, while 5 and 6 each have a 1/8 chance of appearing. Later in the game the player can also obtain the Fixed Dice from Kefka's Tower, which factors three dice into the roll instead of two. Both dice are long range, are not affected by the Master's Scroll penalty, and all other damage modifiers.

Final Fantasy VII

Dice are used by Cait Sith as a Limit Break. Their damage is calculated similarly to Setzer's throws detailed above. For every 10 levels Cait Sith gains, an additional die is added to the throw.

Final Fantasy X-2

The Lady Luck Dressphere uses Dice as one of its attacks. The player can choose to roll two Dice or four Dice, with the number of hits to the enemy party being the sum of the numbers rolled. If the dice have all the same number, the number of hits is multiplied by two.

Final Fantasy XI

Dice are rolled in a variety of different capacities as a Corsair in Final Fantasy XI. The most common of all dice roll is connected to the Phantom Roll ability where a Corsair will attempt to provide a bonus for all party members within range that is related to one of the other jobs in the game (IE: Fighter's Roll will grant Double Attack because it is based on the Warrior job). Connected to Phantom Roll, a corsair may also choose to Double-Up which rolls another die and adds to the total. The total roll determines the effect of the Phantom Roll. Each die has different lucky and unlucky numbers. In general, 11 is always a good roll, because anything equal to or over a 12 is a bust!

To learn a Phantom Roll ability, the Corsair needs to purchase dice of the right type. This is similar to when a mage class purchases a scroll to learn a spell.

Also, the Corsair two-hour generates a number between 1 and 6, though in this case, 1 is the worst result and 6 is the greatest. Generally it recharges other party member abilities, possibly others' two hour abilities, and grants TP, HP, and/or MP. Clearly, it is quite random, but then it is called Wild Card.

Runescape

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

A player rolling a die.

A Dice bag contains dice. It can be purchased from Faruq in Al-Kharid for 10 coins.

Players can roll a dice in a clan chat or privately. There is an animation when the dice is rolled, with different coloured dice.

The dice could be used as a method for deciding what to do next with the result being linked to either an odd or an even number. It is common to utilise a standard 6 sided Dice for this effect.

It is also possible to play d20 games and the like by utilizing the clan roll feature and notes. Although finding a group can be rather difficult.

In The Toolonomincon Says about the dice, 'The dice bag contains many kinds of dice. Use the bag to choose a dice and then roll for yourself or for your clan. You must put the dice away before you can place the bag in your bank.'


Players can choose the following from the bag:

  • One 6 sided
  • Two 6 sided
  • One 4 sided
  • One 8 sided
  • One 10 sided
  • One 12 sided
  • One 20 sided
  • Two 10 sided dice for 1-100

Affiliation
"We'll let fate decide."
Watto

A chance cube, also known as a die (pl. dice), was a small, frequently but not always cubical object used for gambling or making 'A or B' decisions. Most common die was a cube giving only two results after throw; three of its sides were one color, while the other three were another.[1] Some of the dice were weighted by the less fair owners (as it is easier 'tempered' than a flip coin).[2]

History

Watto with his chance cubes
"I just happen to have a chance cube here. Blue—it's the boy. Red—his mother."
―Watto, deciding whether to wager Anakin Skywalker or his mother in a bet

Watto used a chance cube he had with him to gamble with Qui-Gon Jinn on the Boonta Eve Classic. After refusing to bet both Anakin Skywalker and his mother Shmi against Anakin Skywalker's Podracer, he offered to roll his chance cube to decide which slave would be wagered (blue for the boy, red for his mother). Qui-Gon Jinn used telekinesis to influence the fall of the chance cube to ensure that Anakin's freedom would be at stake.[1] As Watto had weighted the die (five red spaces and one blue) to ensure winning such random tosses, Jinn's trick took him quite by surprise.[2]

Vilmarh Grahrk once played a game with chance cubes in a casino on Ord Mantell, although these had more than six sides.[3]

Han Solo had a pair of dice-shaped ornaments decorating the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.[4]

King Katuunko also used a Chance Cube to choose Rugosa for a diplomatic meeting on whether he should join the Galactic Republic or the Confederacy of Independent Systems. [5]

In 31 BBY, Jedi Knight Alec gambled with chance cubes in the Grande Game casino of Depatar, winning so many times that the owner retired the table for maintenance.[6]
