I think the symbol should viscerally convey damage/hurt in a meaningful way, particularly because of the bonuses you get for rolling triple ones, ideally (since we only get one mold) conveying both melee combat and magic. I'm thinking a sword crossed with a lightning bolt, a la the iconography from the small boxes.

How about the die have a hex outline with the number in the hex?

I kinda like that, although I prefer pips to numerals. (For d6, anyway, because it's Traditional™) But I think a hex would look cool with a pip in the middle too.



Correction: "I think a hex [with a pip in the middle] <-> [would look cool] too". Sorry, that was bugging me.

Megahexes on each side, with filled-in hexes instead of pips.

Never mind... 'Tis a silly idea....

To create what you've described would mean two separate molds; or one mold and producing a lot of dice that are destroyed since half the run would not fit your proposal.
Solution! The M is a W upside down!

3 M's is a critical hit, and 3 W's is a critical miss. Let the table arguments begin :)

I just like the idea of special TFT dice. Iíll buy those. I liked the OGRE dice with the hoplite helmet on it.

SJG has some great creatives. Iím sure they could come up with something cool.

Take my money. :-)

1 is a single hex enclosing TFT (in the same font as the logo text on the product).

The 6 has a megahex marked:

Code:
   F
T     T
    
S     G
   J

Maybe TFT really does need a logo? There isnít one, really.

It needs to feature the distinctive megahex, certainly. Maybe something like this...
