All,
I just got the Mythic Game Master Emulator, which uses D100! Where does one find a D100 and how exactly do you roll it?

Well that is certainly easier.

Yea, those D100s really roll, and the numbers are tiny, so…..

They make "tens" and single digit dice, to make it less confusing, but 2 x D10s in different colors work too – just be sure to clearly state, and perhaps even write down before the game, which D10 is for the "tens" die.

or
3x D34 -2

One of the first games I played in the 1970s explained it. Get a red d10 and a black d10. Reds count as tens, black as units.
Red has been tens ever since.

Zocchi's D100 was a novel concept and he put a lot of work into designing it, but it was much like rolling a golf ball & trying to determine which dimple was the top one, once it finally stopped rolling.

I used to use color declarations, but it was one more source of confusion. I finally went out and bought D10's numbered 00-90 so there would be NO mistake. Any time you can remove a possible glitch for under $5 USD, go for it.

Roll one of these with a regular D10

Simple now, but there was a time when there were only single-digit D10s, back in the Pleistocene era……..

Roll 2 D10s. Make sure they are different colours. Nominate one as "tens",the other as "units". Simple. Job done.

Nope, you can now buy dice that are a clear ten sided with another ten sided inside. Roll for 100 sided. The diceshop online

Really? People these days don't know how to roll a D100? It's probably one of the first things I learned when I picked up gaming many decades ago.

Btw, 3d34-2 does not equal a uniform D100.

I have a dice rolling app on my phone that has a D100 die. While not as astetically pleasing as holding die in your hands, works well, doesn't role forever across the table and is a true random number generator. For odd dice works great.

Most of the dice sets I've bought in recent years have had two d10s, one numbered 0-9 and the other numbered 00-90. Roll both together and the score out of 100 should be obvious (000 = 100 in this method).

No arguments about which die is the tens and which units, either.
