I was in the Desktop Dungeons thread the other day and some guy stormed in demanding to know what kind of Random Number Generator was used. The reply was that the random function in Unity was used and that the result is compared to character stats. Clearly, this was not the right answer.
Words like mersenne twister and harvesting the entropy from the network noise were thrown around. I assume those are religious terms?
Definitely a dice store. Cover the standard polyhedrals (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, and d20) at the very least. You can conscript a Chinese plastic molder to make you something competent cheaply, or just license out somebody like WizKids or Chessex.
Shirts are a must. I think you can get good traction from both the tabletop and digital markets. D&D geeks love to wear D&D themed shirts for some reason
Customizable DM screen foldout with little clear pockets on the inside for the DM To insert game-appropriate rules summaries into, while the outside features ludicrous over the top “PRAY TO RNGESUS” artwork
Custom playmats for MtG players, dice towers/rollers for tabletop nerds, and cardsleeves for both CCG nuts and boardgames fans. All with RNGesus artwork as above
Run a weekly Twitch RPG stream in the vein of Acquisitions Inc. or Critical Role, except that the ruleset is a fully randomized hexcrawl campaign in the vein of what @milspec is plotting over in the Tabletop RPGs thread. I volunteer to DM this for a cut of only 95% of the advertising fees.
Retire even more wealthy than you were going to already, buried in a gleaming chrome pyramid made from melted down videocard vent covers that your army of hired hands snipped for you
Claim to invest millions of dollars in a true random number generator. One that has heretofore unprecedented levels of randomness. Claim that it’s not just simulation, there’s a physical component that ensures truly random numbers. Sell it in an app for .99.
In reality, it’ll just make an API call to a personal server that returns something spit out by the stock Java Random() function.
Anyone can become a Reverend in the Universal Life Church. As I am. Not sure what it costs now. It’s a non-denominational church which has all sorts of people in it. You can even officiate at weddings. I’m actually a real Rev. No shit. There are actually a lot of weird and wonderful folks in the church.
Edit: It used to be that you needed a brick and mortar building to be an actual church. Not sure if that’s still true.
