It's really my fault.  I keep leading you astray.

On a ten sided die are printed the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8,
9.  I have no idea why it's zero based.  In most rolls for most games
though, 0 is considered 10.

1d10 will be a number between 1 and 10 for this quiz.

When two tens are rolled together for d100, the first is taken as the
tens digit (0-9) and the second as the ones digit (0-9).  The special
case is that 00 is considered 100.

Honestly though, I won't think less of you if you generate a random
number between 1 and 100.  :)
