This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Anybody up for a game of craps?
[dice=2]6[/dice]

What about fireball tossing?
[dice=10]6[/dice]

Or a good old skill check
[dice]20[/dice]

Here's the rules on the dice tool according to Larry Lamont of Pesking GA.  You can only make one of a *type* of roll in a post - subsquent rolls will yield the same result. Hence if you need to roll a d20 two times you'll need to make two posts.

And don't think about cheating - the system remembers your roll after the first go and won't let you change it.  The clever among you might note the result is simple bold text, but if you quote this post you can see the tag - and your Gamemaster can quote your post to see if you actually rolled or you made it up.  If you made it up then it's your neck, not mine.

I understand this to mean you have installed a dice roller? If so, I don't see it. Hint, please?


Quote the Pooka and all will be clear.

The dice code is [noparse][dice=x]y[/dice][/noparse] where X is the number of dice to roll and Y is the denomination (d6, d4, etc)

Breathes fire.

edit: Woot!
We have been hurt.
We are bleeding.
We will survive.
We will evolve.
We will become stronger.
We will become more than the sum of our parts.
We are The Damnation army.
We are Legion.
