Had a game today, was a bit of a silly one using the 3 Oni vs the Prefecture but one thing really became apparent to me..... my dice hate me.I got one good hit in with Zuba today and fluffed pretty much everything else, either I'd roll horribly for the combat or my wound dice would forsake me. This has been happening throughout many games, some examples below:
1) Wrath, stocked up on 9 Ki charges Mikio, does 1 wound and is then destroyed in 1 hit (I'd left 5 Ki on him for wounds)
2) None of my Oni have ever killed anything, Zuba has come the closest, causing 6 wounds once (today)
3) To my knowledge the only models I have that have ended an enemy are Ikiryo and, um, Ikiryo.
4) I have never triggered a trigger.
I have tried many approaches to combat; very cautiously, a good mix, violent rampages, not at all but I always get pumped. I have tried rolling dice in different ways (underhand, overhand, nostril-blast, in a mug, etc). I have taken my dice for drinks, met their parents, bought them presents, whispered sweet nothings to them and all for nothing. I have since came to the conclusion that my dice hate me and mock me at every opportunity .
Henceforth I shall be ritually burning my current dice on sacred ground (I very much feel an evil force will be unleashed so best be cautious) and venturing online to find some new dice. Some very special dice.
That is all.
