Dice Overload in WFRP

I’m not sure whether to be horrified at the complex mechanics or excited at so many dice. Apparently the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay game has seven completely different kinds of dice. You have a different colored dice pool for different functions, there are some eight-sided, some ten-sided and some six-sided. None of them use pips, the each have a combination of custom symbols and blank faces.

One of the new features of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay are the custom dice used during task resolution. The core set includes 36 custom dice. With these dice, the characters can perform a wide variety of actions while accounting for changing tactics, situations, and effects. Rather than numbers, these dice feature special symbols.
