This Roman-era d20 is up for auction at Christie’s for a shade under $18,000.

Cool, or what?!

I reckon in honour of this fabulous hunk o’glass we all ought to generate a character using Roman Numerals just like they did back in the day. Perhaps this is where all those Type VI Demons originated.

Here’s by Roman age character, generated using Microlite20:

Alea Viginti Colosseus, Human Fighter-I
STR XVI, DEX XIV, MIND XII, Phys@V, others@II
hpXXII, AC XV (Studded leather)
Shortsword +IV, IdVI+III
Sling +III, IdIV

Now it’s your turn :)
