Many years ago a friend of mine got some six-sided body hit location dice (head, chest, right arm and leg, left arm and leg).

We use them when we play Desperardo.

Does anyone know who made these dice and where I can find some more of them?

I've seen 12-sided hit location dice but I don't really need a die that shows a groin shot!

Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

I forgot to mention that each side of the die showed the outline of a body with a particular part of the body circled (e.g. the head was circled on one side, another would show the left arm circled, etc.).

I was thinking that Chessex did a d6 one, but I found a d12. link

In Related Products, I found a Koplow with locations in text, but I won't claim that will be what you see if you go to the URL.

The Koplow ones are much cheaper than Chessex, if you are wanting to buy several for your RPG group to use, or for you to use with several monsters.

I just saw those dice at the Games of Berkeley table in the dealer's room at Pacificon!

I still prefer the hit location matrix chart. Whereas d6 provides and equal chance of different areas being hit the same. This is wrong. A weighted chance to hit needs to be used. Different weapons are more likely to hit different locations. Add in the chance of target body armor or an impaired shooter, only a few examples, and the weighted matrix is the most realistic.
