I'm not quite sure how the current RNG works, but I had heard some different RNG ideas being used elsewhere and had an idea that might be worth considering, since so many people complain about the RNG in general.

In base 6, a list of numbers between 0 to 100,000 is generated. When a d6 roll is needed for the game, the last digit of the number on the list is checked to provide the result.

The idea is that this would the bias of results that could happen in any one game.

Of course, if the current RNG reduces bias by an even greater margin than my suggestion does, then might as well stick with the current system.

If you really "do know, do know", then why are you asking?

Xyon,

What constitutes bias? Like how do we know if we see it?

I think Christer should manually roll every required dice roll on webcam.

It's the only path to fairness.

I know you're joking Anzelak, but for the masses:

Unless you roll perfectly machined casino type dice, a number generator is far superior in randomness than rolling dice manually.

The majority of manufactured dice are flawed & do NOT produce the same randomness that the crunched numbers say they should. Do some research & you will lose allot of faith in manually rolling dice.

Skewing the results towards an even distribution is introducing bias, and is not how randomness works.

There is 50-50 chance that you have an interesting idea, but there's only a 10% chance of that.
