Stumbled upon this hack and it was easy, so here it is. Not sure how useful it will be but hell, we are roleplayers, why not?

You will notice a new bit of text under the smilies saying "Dice roll code generator" ((I actually changed it to a dice graphic))

It will open a pop-up window. If you are like me and block them all, just right-click and open it in a new window.

Feel free to start an inane thread to experiment with it. I don't have time to do a tutorial on it and there wasn't one in the thread I got it on.

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=26713.0

The explode box is some Shadowrun thing where if you roll over a 6 then it continues to roll until you roll under that or something like that. If somebody figures it out it would be nice if they told us how it all works.

PS, go ahead and try and edit the die rolls too. They will turn into code so it will be obvious if they are manipulated so they are safe for actual use without worry of cheating...although I know all of you to be honest folk so not like that is a big deal or anything.

Copied from

(remove the spaces from the string to make it work)

Using this roller you can easily generate the base stats for your character.

To use:
: stats [number of rolls]d[number of sides][+/-][modifier],[drop lowest? y/n],[number of stats to roll] :

If there is none you may omit the modifier but you must always include the command to drop the lowest roll or not (y/n) and the amount of stats to roll.

Here are some examples...

1. This is the D&D method of rolling stats. 4d6 will be rolled 6 times and the lowest roll each time will be dropped.

: stats 4d6,y,6 :

Stats rolled 6 times using 4d6 and dropping the lowest roll
2,6,5,6:  17
3,3,5,4:  12
4,3,1,5:  12
3,5,1,4:  12
5,1,2,4:  11
1,2,1,6:  9


2. This rolls the same as 1. but will also add 1 to the total roll.

: stats 4d6+1,y,6 :

Stats rolled 6 times using 4d6+1 and dropping the lowest roll
4,2,5,5: 14 + 1 =  15
6,5,2,1: 13 + 1 =  14
4,1,1,6: 11 + 1 =  12
4,5,4,1: 13 + 1 =  14
1,4,6,4: 14 + 1 =  15
2,6,2,1: 10 + 1 =  11


3. If you don't want the lowest to be dropped then change the 'y' to a 'n'.

: stats 4d6,n,6 :

Stats rolled 6 times using 4d6
6,3,5,1:  15
4,5,6,2:  17
6,5,1,6:  18
3,3,6,6:  18
3,1,6,6:  16
5,4,1,6:  16

Looks like this should work too if you dont want to use the generator.

: dice 2d6+1 :

If you edit it, it turns into html so it is obvious if the rolls are tampered with. You cannot edit the post once it is posted. So even if you aren't going to edit the dice roll, it will ruin it.

Actually, you can edit a post, and write a new dice code, in effect rolling a new dice.

But, at least there is the record of the post being edited.

Me typing code manually:

One can cure oneself of the not un- formation by memorizing this sentence: A not unblack dog was chasing a not unsmall rabbit across a not ungreen field.  Orwell

Dump the "stats" word and just use "dice" with your multiple rolls. I don't think the "stats" work anymore. It was just a quick hack to get the dice to work again and I don't think the advanced stuff is there.
