For this optional purchase, we thought of the dice lovers, and there are a lot of them!
In a game like HEL: The Last Saga where you often have to roll dice to determine the success or failure of an action, having a lot of dice can be an added comfort, especially when you play in a group and all players want to have dice in easy reach. The 12 six-sided dice provided in the Berserk Pledge are classic printed dice, made of hard plastic and good quality. But the 12 highly thematic dice we offer you here in this optional purchase are truly exceptional. They are engraved, made of resin, and finished with an ‘aged bone’ paint which gives them the effect of being made from cattle horn.
As a reminder, when you roll dice for your Heroes, you roll a number of dice equal to the appropriate Hero stat number, plus any bonus dice that may be awarded through a talent or a Hero card, for example. You add up the results on these dice and must reach or exceed a threshold set by the game. If you reach or exceed this threshold, the action is successful.
The six sides of these special dice are:
Blank - 1 hit - 1 hit - 2 hits - 1 "Cover" - 1 "Special".
A "Cover" result is 0, unless it is a Defence roll made in a Covered area (or if specified in a special rule).
A "Special" result is 0 unless specifically stated (such as by an active Prayer card).
You may have noticed that there are 6 large and 6 small dice. There is a reason for this... that you'll discover only during the Saga! In the meantime, you can use them, big or small, quite normally. You can use them alongside the standard dice to increase the available pool, though no player should ever need to roll more than 12 dice at once, or you can use them to replace the standard dice altogether in order to enhance your immersion in the world of HEL: The Last Saga.
