    Please, do not insult my trusty dice. The earliest of my percentiles (i.e. a single d10 I rolled twice ;P) date from around 84 when I believe those oddball 0-9/00-90 dice had already shown up - but I have a partial set and d20 from probably '79-'80.

    All my dice are REAL!

    As the gods intended! ... 0 0 = 100. 1 0 = 10. 0 1 = 1.
    (Well, perhaps using 0s and 1s exclusively was a confusing thing for us devs... 0, 2, 1.)

    Mine were 2 different colored d10, but those weren't "percentile". I don't recall at any time seeing 1-10 and 00-90 as percentile dice. The only dice I ever saw a 10 on were the 00-90, d12 and d20 (and the oddball dice like d30 or what-have-you). Places to buy dice back then were few and very far between.

    My prior comments were just me goofing around. . But since you said your two different colored d10 (YOU had TWO d10? Back in MY day, you had ONE d10 and you were GRATEFUL!... sorry, I'm old and must say things like that contractually...) were not "percentile."

    I wanted to point out that you are "right", judging by what I understand the term is expected to apply to nowadays. However, I wanted to point out that when I was playing AD&D and one was told to roll "percentile dice" - the only expected course of action was to pick up a D10 (labelled 0-9) and roll it twice or pick up two different colored d10 and roll once.

    So d10s WERE both "percentile" dice and ten-sided dice based on how you used em

    Of course I had 2 d10...I had 2 different sets of dice...One that came with D&D Basic edition box and one that came with D&D Expert edition box. Those were the only dice I had for several years, even into AD&D, MERP, RoleMaster, and SpaceMaster years. Now I buy cool sets of dice whenever I feel like I don't have enough dice (which is always!!!).
