Faceted barrel d20

I love Abraham Neddermann’s Dice Creator’s Blog, full of his experiments with gaming dice. His most recent creation is a lovely hollow twenty-sider he calls Larry Niven’s d20.

Today’s post, can be described as a truly “Concept Die”, like the concept cars you see on many auto shows. It comes as a solution to “The D20 question”, which is, more or less, the unpracticality of a barrel type D20. You know, as you increase the faces number with a constant face width, diameter of the die also increases.

A few days ago, Abraham had tried to make a solid version, and it ended up weighing in at 37.5 grams (about 1.3 oz) — this one seems more practical! So much so that he’s adopted it has his personal d20.
