Barry wanted a reading system that could be performed in the hands, sitting down or just walking around, that didn't require a table or a spread.
That could be done inside or outside, regardless of the weather conditions.
Something that didn't get soiled, torn, blown away or that water would ruin. So cards were out. Runes and stones fit the bill, but to get different coloured ones and of the same size isn't easy. Barry needed a uniform size and nothing too esoteric. Dice fit this description and are easily available.
Long before tarot and runes, soothsayers used to cast bones, the ancient
equivalent of dice.
This system is designed for a quick reading, five minutes at the most, but
can be easily expanded for a more detailed reading.
