I just thought of a great idea for custom dice for P&P. take a Blank D6 put 2 "Kapow" explosions outlines on 2 of the sides, and then put a "kapow" explosion that is color'ed in on a 3rd side. make them in sets of 12. and color code them to your character sheet (purple for magic, green for natural, red for psionic, blue for super, grey for tech, and orange for training)
so go and kickstarter that crap up with the hardcover P&P deluz super edition (highest level backers get a cape) I refuse to be paid for my awesome brain skills my heroic duty is to pass this idea to you folks.
oh and in case you didn't get the dice, a Outlined Kapow is a HIT, and Filled in Kapow is a hit and then reroll. (aka exploding 6)
this way we don't have to worry about stinking numbers. LOL
On an only slightly-related topic, I came up with a way of emulating P&P dice rolls in the Dicenomicon app, which helped immensely in my demos. The only mod is that it calculates successes as >3 rather than using odds/evens.
