So I tried running a D&D game using a bastardization of the Amber diceless roleplaying system last week. I love playing Amber, but I learned that there is a big difference between playing a game designed to be diceless, and trying to cudgel a system designed around a d20 into playability without dice of any kind. My players were good sports, and played along as my game limped into the toolshed to await the bullet without complaint. Oh well. Lesson learned. They can’t all be gems!
