So easy to roll and quickly count hits/glitches!


I'm not affiliated with Legendary Pants, just a happy customer. Seriously, these things are great, and you should get some :D

$9 US per D6 set; 9 dollars dice in each, with half off for a second set. So of course I bought 4 sets.

I got a whole bunch of them, they're cheaper than the official Shadowrun dice (though if I could order the edge+dice sets...) but also way too frickin' big in comparison. Only suitable for smaller dicepools. But yes, they count very quickly.

Sounds like an opportunity to me... ;D

I'm not even sure what small or large dice pools are in this case, but I can roll 18 of these at a time just fine. I'd call that a medium to large dice pool, personally, in the context of 6th Edition at least.

They're far less comfortable to roll than 18 Shadowrun dice though.

Not having seen the Shadowrun dice, i can't really compare. What's the size difference?

If I had to guess, can't find the exact specs online, 11.5mm instead of 16mm?

That makes sense; standard Chessex dice are 12mm and are used by a lot of wargamers; when I played Warhammer I could easily need to throw 40-60 dice, and in those cases I definitely prefer the smaller Chessex dice.

Since my eyesight isn't what it used to, and since dice pools in Shadowrun 6th Edition are significantly less than 40, I personally prefer the Legendary Pants dice for how easy they are to reference. I look forward to seeing what the Shadowrun dice look like, though.

We should also contact Legendary Pants and ask about getting their dice in 12mm format, if that's setting people want.

I'm using the previous generation of Shadowrun dice, the ones from Q Workshop. I got 12 Mage dice, 12 Decker dice, 12 Street Samurai dice and 6 Catalyst demo agents dice (Street sam symbols but CGL green dice with black icons). On those dice, the 5/6 use symbols and very small numbers, and the 1s also have a special symbol, so they count nicely as well. But they were more than $2 per die when buying a set of 6.
