A second opinion?
We'll just call this one the Case of the Taiwanese Dodecahedron ...

Mmmkay. So frameacloud posed a question. I gave it some thought and, halfway down this thread, proposed an answer.

My question to you, my fellow die detectives: What do you think? I've certainly come up with something that sounds plausible, but short of facts or confirmed sightings, that's all it is. Does anyone have either (A) an alternate theory, something which I wouldn't have thought of on my own; or (B) any more authoritative information to bring to the table on this?

Oh -- and if your brain is too dead to think about such deep and puzzling matters, then here, poke the penguin.

A: It is a nice little artifact from R'lyeh ( http://www.cthulhu.org/), and when you invoke the name of Cthulhu and roll it many times in succession,you get the incantation for whatever question you invoked the Great One with. Of course,by using the incantation,you just summon a Cthulhu Spawn,go insane, experience a few brief moments of pain,and die horribly. If you are lucky,you get to encounter Nyarlathotep instead. Of course,you are just lucky in a relative sense. You are still horribly screwed. If you know anyone willing to test that hypothesis,please ask them to do so.

What's this "find someone else to test it" supposed to mean? I am a great and mighty mage! Do you doubt my power? Fine, I'll give it a shot myself.

*roll, roll, roll, roll*

Hmm. ... HUSA ... GOAL ... MARZ ... VERB ... SKID ...

See? Nothing yet. I can handle this.

*roll, roll, roll ...*

HAWS ... TOUR ... HAWS ... TOUR ... HAWS ... TOUR. That's funny, my die seems to be stuck.

... Oh, shit.
