Percentile dice, or d100, work a little differently. You generate a number between 1 and 100 by rolling two different ten-sided dice numbered from 0 to 9. One die (designated before you roll) gives the tens digit, and the other gives the ones digit. If you roll a 7 and a 1, for example, the number rolled is 71.

## What is a 100 on a d100?

A **d100 goes 1–100**, a d10 goes 0-9. Neither allows you to roll a 0, because of the way you count a percentile dice. (00 on the percentile and a 6 on the other dice forms 6, 00 on one and 0 on the other is 100, no option will result in 0.)

## How do you read percentile dice 5e?

Before rolling, choose one of the two dice to be your “tens” digit. Roll them, then arrange them in order (just like you were writing it down – tens to the left of ones). Read the number, that’s your answer. If you get a 0 in the tens spot, it means you rolled under 10.

## What is the 0 on a D10?

On a d10, the 0 is **a 10**. N=100, On a d100, a 0 (or 000) is 100. N=1000, On a d100, a 0 is 1000.

## How do you read a 10 sided dice?

Ten-sided dice, often sold in pairs (the two are different colors), are most commonly used to roll percentile values — that is, the two dice are rolled together, and the result read **by multiplying one previously designated die as ten times its reading, and adding the other’s reading**. This gives a result from 00 to 99.

## Can you roll 0 on a d100?

A d100 goes 1–100, a d10 goes 0-9. **Neither allows you to roll a 0**, because of the way you count a percentile dice. (00 on the percentile and a 6 on the other dice forms 6, 00 on one and 0 on the other is 100, no option will result in 0.)

## How do you get 100 on a d100?

TREAT THE d10 THE SAME WAY YOU’VE ALWAYS TREATED IT.

This way, everything works out perfectly. You can’t roll a zero; a 00-0 roll would be a 10. A 00-1 would be a 1. **90-0** is the coveted 100 roll.

## What are percentile dice used for?

Like any other dice they are used **to determine the success or failure of an event**. They can also be used to generate statistics in gaming systems that utilize a 1-100 range for attributes.

## What is 00 on a percentile dice?

**The only dice that can ever roll a zero is the percentile itself** (00). By common rules: The single digit percentile of the 2 d10 method is 0-9, but when the ten’s die is 00 with a 0 single digit, the exception is 100, not 0. This maintains 1-100 and not 0-99.

## How do you read dice rolls?

The first die represents the tens digit, and the second die the ones digit. For example, a roll of 1 followed by a roll of 5 will give a total of 15, while a roll of 3 followed by a roll of 6 will give a total of 36. The average result of the D66 is 38.5, and the standard deviation about 17.16.
