Inconsistent Mechanics: D&D 4th Edition Recharge Mechanic

I posted earlier about the inconsistency of the 4th Edition Magic Missile, so here's another one for you.

If the system is called the d20 System, then why is the monster power recharge mechanic in 4th Edition D&D based on a d6?

I can see no reason for them not to just have the recharge on a d20, other than they didn't have enough glyphs left in their font... :-|


  1. would you rather they use a d4 like previous editions?

    1. I was expecting a d20.

      If you're going to choose a specific die to base a mechanic around, why not use the same one that you've based all of your other mechanics around?
