## Can you roll 10 on a D10?

The one with two digits is just telling you the tens digit, and the one with one digit is the ones digit. If you’re rolling only that die with 0, 10, 20, etc., then a 10 = a 1 and the 00 = a 10. 0 or 00 **on a d10 just means the highest number**.

## How do you use percentage dice?

If you’re rolling 2d10, then **multiply the tens die’s result by 10** and then add them together. If you’re rolling a d10 and a d%, then you can just add the numbers, because the die has already done the multiplying by 10 for you. Lastly, remember that a zero result means 100, not 0.

## Does 0 on D10 mean 10?

The die is a d10, and **when such a die is rolled, the 0 is usually read as a 10**. Some RPGs use it as a 0-9, but that’s more of the exception rather than the rule. The only time a 0 on a d10 is read as a 0 is when it’s rolled as a pair of d10s to get a d100, or percentile dice, where a “00” is 100.

## What are D10 dice used for?

## Can you roll 100 on percentile dice?

Yes, a d100 is the same as 2d10 with one as the percentile. A d100 goes 1–100, a d10 goes 0-9. **Neither allows you to roll a 0**, because of the way you count a percentile dice. (00 on the percentile and a 6 on the other dice forms 6, 00 on one and 0 on the other is 100, no option will result in 0.)

## Can you roll a zero in DND?
