Usage Die

The Usage Die is used for abstracting consumable resources: rations, torches, ammunition. Each time a player uses that resource, they roll a specific die, typically starting at a d20. If the die comes up with a 1 or a 2, the resource is consumed, meaning the die goes down one step. The standard progression is:

d20 > d12 > d10 > d8 > d6 > d4

When a 1 or 2 is rolled on a d4, the resource expires.
