How to: Forum Die Roller
« on: January 03, 2010, 08:51:01 PM »
This dice roll has been tampered with!
Rolled 1d6 : 5, total 5


NOTE: I had to make a space between the bracket and roll below so it wouldn't roll.


The dice roller is back now too finally. There is a dice icon where you post a message:
There are a variety of options you can have inside the roll tag:

[ roll ]1d6[ /roll ] - rolls 1 6-sided dice.
Might result in:
Quote
Rolled 1d6 : 2, total 2


[ roll ]2d12+5 [/roll ] - roll 2 12-sided dice and add 5 to the result
Might result in:
Quote
Rolled 2d12+5 : 6, 11 + 5, total 22


[ roll ]2d20^10[ /roll ] - roll 2 20-sided dice, re-rolling any result necessary so that the dice rolls are greater than 10.
Quote This dice roll has been tampered with!
Rolled 2d20^10 : 3 8 10 3 17, 2 10 9 10 14, total 31

[ roll ]2d20v10[ /roll ] - roll 2 20-sided dice, re-rolling any result necessary so that the dice rolls are less than 10.
Quote
Rolled 2d20v10 :
11 3, 3, total 6

[ roll ]2d20<10[ /roll ] - roll 2 20-sided dice, discarding any result where the roll was not less than 10.
Quote
Rolled 2d20<10 : 4,
20, total 4

[ roll ]2d20>10[ /roll ] - roll 2 20-sided dice, discarding any result where the roll was not greater than 10.
Quote
Rolled 2d20>10 :
9, 10

Normallyit will add the word 'Rolled' in front - you can customise this. Forexample, a spell that does some serious damage in a game:
[ roll ]{Freezing} 1d10 {Fire} 1d20[ /roll ]
Quote
Freezing 1d10 : 1, total 1
Fire 1d20 : 2, total 2


You can also nest the requirements, with the proviso of stating the things as they are in order here.
[ roll ]{Uberdamage}15d100+10^10v90<80>20[ /roll ] - 15 100-sided dice, adding 10 tothe result, rerolling anything 10 or less, rerolling anything 90 orhigher, and if after that, you have values 20 or less, or 80 or higher,they get dropped.
Quote
Uberdamage15d100+10^10v90<80>20 : 82, 7 61, 3 36, 59, 30, 86, 14, 42, 70,22, 99 58, 100 73, 46, 93 1 91 42, 12 + 10, total 549


Lastly you can also have an iterator at the end:
[ roll ]2d6x3[ /roll ] - roll 2d6 3 times and display the results overall
Quote
Rolled 2d6 : 6, 3, total 9
Rolled 2d6 : 1, 4, total 5
Rolled 2d6 : 1, 5, total 6
