Where it Lies

Loosely inspired by Episode 114 of Critical Role.

As a DM it’s tricky to determine if a player really rolled a cocked dice: where a pencil or piece or paper interfered with the proper roll and the side facing up is not entirely clear. Rolls like that are often a table’s length away and you have to rely on the honour system that the dice was actually not lying flat and the player isn’t just rolling again because they disliked the previous roll.

But, realistically, most die rolls are too far away to be clearly seen anyway, so the DM has to just trust that the players aren’t making up numbers randomly.
