Getting to know 5th Edition
The Whimsy Die
At times, we may come across a situation that is not well covered in the rules or for which we can't find the rules in time. In those situations, I will grab a die and ask you to call high or low. Once you pick, I'll roll the die and see if what you guessed matches what I rolled. For example, if I grab a d20 and you guess high, that means that the die has to show 11 through 20. If it does, then we pick the rule or set a house rule that favors your situation. If it doesn't match what you picked, then we pick the rule or set a house rule that doesn't favor your situation.
I'll keep track of house rules set via the Whimsy Die here, but if we find the correct rule later on, we can discard the house rule and use the actual rule from there on out.
