Layout: Roll the Musician's Die
Rolling the Musician's Die. All castings have a direction: they are either ascending or descending. This direction is determined at a casting’s outset by rolling the Musician’s Die. If the die is pointing upward or hard right when it lands, the casting is ascending: the die is placed at the bottom of the work area, and the ensuing Solfège Dice and cards will be placed above it. If the Musician’s Die is pointing downward or hard left when it lands, the casting is descending: the die is placed at the top of the work area, and the ensuing Solfège Dice and cards will be placed below it.
The examples in the left group are all pointing up or hard right; each would indicate an ascending casting. The examples in the right group are all pointing down or hard left; each would indicate a descending casting.
