Dream Log: D&D

Last night, I dreamt that I was joining Mike's D&D campaign, and needed to roll up a character.

At first, I was under the misapprehension that ability scores were generated by rolling 6d6 and dropping the lowest die. So I rolled six dice, eliminated one, and totalled the result: 15. On the next roll, though, the dice landed among other people's dice on the table, and I couldn't remember which dice were the ones that I had rolled.

Then I remembered that it was 4 dice, drop the lowest. So I gathered four dice of the same type (red with yellow spots) and rolled those. The ability scores I got, in order, were 6, 3 (everybody oohed, because they knew how improbable that result was), 12, 10, 8, 12.

Two conclusions:
1) I have geeky dreams, and
2) When I have dice luck like this, I should play GURPS, where low rolls are generally good.
