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.

[dice]6[/dice]
[dice=2]6[/dice]
[dice=3]6[/dice]

I think I've got it... I looked at the while loop a little carefully and found it was iterating an extra time, so Mega you were effectively rolling 4d6

OK : starting from scratch again:
STR : [dice=3]6[/dice]
DEX : [dice=3]6[/dice]
CON : [dice=3]6[/dice]
INT : [dice=3]6[/dice]
WIS : [dice=3]6[/dice]
CHA : [dice=3]6[/dice]

:confused:
And that is supposed to be playable?
Looks like my neighbour....

Let's give it another try:
STR : [dice=3]6[/dice]
DEX : [dice=3]6[/dice]
CON : [dice=3]6[/dice]
INT : [dice=3]6[/dice]
WIS : [dice=3]6[/dice]
CHA : [dice=3]6[/dice]

Maybe it's post-specific...

Trial#3:
STR : [dice=3]6[/dice]
DEX : [dice=3]6[/dice]
CON : [dice=3]6[/dice]
INT : [dice=3]6[/dice]
WIS : [dice=3]6[/dice]
CHA : [dice=3]6[/dice]

That was even worse , but I sense a pattern...
STR : [dice=3]6[/dice]

DEX : [dice=3]6[/dice]

CON : [dice=3]6[/dice]

INT : [dice=3]6[/dice]
WIS : [dice=3]6[/dice]
CHA : [dice=3]6[/dice]

OK . another bug ; It can't do multiple instants of the same calculation within the same post seperately. Even if you enter them in successive edits , like I did with the above.
Possible to fix this?
It looked , by the previous posts from others , it should be able to...
[edit : I should have my eyes checked : no previous instant of multiple , identical calculations in previous posts.]

That's not a bug that I'm going to be able to fix without heavily rewritting the code. You are only allowed one roll per type per post.  I can't think of an easy way around this that also prevents cheating.

Ah!
OK then.
Only matters during the creation of a character after all.
AFAIK there's no such dillemma in any other situation , involving dice.

Pretty much -- though if you're using magic missile, you could have up to 5 missiles, and that would be a bit tedious.  But it's one of the few other exceptions.

Personally, if I run anything d20 with stats, I may just let people cheat.  I like seeing large numbers on stats.  :)

I don't suppose anyone else is experiencing this, but using Firefox, I get a database error when I click the quote icon of a post that contains dice BBcode.  When I click the quote icon of a post that contains only regular text, everything seems to work fine.

Anyone experiencing something similar?

I developped it under firefox, so the answer would be no - however, I don't use the WYSIWYG editor.  Are you?

I am...let me switch my settings and see what that does.  Yep, when I make the switch to "Enhanced" I don't have the same problems.  Thanks!

But checks are always rolled with a D20.
Penalties are applied after the roll.
