The die rolls give you a bell curve, the smaller the dice, the more likely you
are to do average damage.  2D100, gives you an average of 101, with a pretty
even distribution.  68D2 gives you an average of 102, but the overwhelming
majority of results are near the average.  The minimum and max damages are
affected too.  It all depends on the results you are looking for.
