Are you:

Are you a Dice? specifically D20s.

Old Answer and reasoning:

The game Dungeons & Dragons AKA D&D. Thought this because of the highlighting of the letter 'D', the references to chance, talk of heroes, etc. Also as pointed out by @Excited Raichu there are 20 uppercase Ds in the text and the main die used in Dungeons and Dragons is a D20.
