About to die anyway?
Did your character just fall off a cliff? Take a particle beam to the skull? Miss that saving throw versus dragon breath? Then you may as well take a chance on using the SCIENTIFIC BARBARIAN D2 Death Die! Just flip the die and there’s at least a 50% chance you somehow miraculously defied death’s door, with at least half your hit points restored. But be warned, such miracles come at a cost. If you use the D2 Death Die and survive, you now owe a favor to VarDOS, the three-eyed cyber-lich. It was his power that spared you, and you know he is going to come and collect on that debt.
The SCIENTIFIC BARBARIAN D2 Death die is a zinc coin about the same size as a half dollar, tumbled for extra shininess.
