Test of Dice Roller

This is a test post utilizing the dice roller.

I have rolled 3d6 seven times, the abilities plus a starting template in order. In the "Roll" box, I typed:

3d6; 3d6; 3d6; 3d6; 3d6; 3d6; 3d6

to make this happen.

(edited this)

Seven 3d6 rolls, take the first six as stats in the usual order, the seventh is a template roll.
3d6 = 7; 3d6 = 14; 3d6 = 13; 3d6 = 15; 3d6 = 8; 3d6 = 12; 3d6 = 9;
(1, 3, 3 ) (4, 4, 6 ) (5, 2, 6 ) (5, 6, 4 ) (2, 3, 3 ) (4, 5, 3 ) (6, 2, 1 )
Another set of rolls
1d20 = 20; 1d20 = 4;
(20 ) (4 )

As shown above, if you edit a post, your original rolls are preserved, and, if you need to add additional rolls, you can - in my edit, I added the "Another Set of Rolls" descriptor and did "1d20; 1d20" as my rolls.

And evidently wasted a natural 20.

Now it's time to start a character.

I'm rolling to determine my Charisma!

So, Str 18, Int 6, Wis 4, Dex 13, Con 9, Cha 11...yeah, that's a meathead fighter if I ever saw one. That'd make him a Mercenary based on the 11 wealth roll, so...he can teach other soldiers. I'm amused.

Wis 4....that guy had better get someone to point him in the direction of wizards first, because he's not going to be able to save vs anything till higher levels. (He needs a 19 to save vs spells at first level!)

A wizard that declared they're casting a spell? I waste 'em with my crossbow!

He only has a 6 int, he might not be able to come up with that plan on his own :P

Hmmm, is it that easy?

These are rolls for a character I will never play.
3d6 = 7; 3d6 = 5; 3d6 = 13; 3d6 = 9; 3d6 = 11; 3d6 = 9; 3d6 = 9;
(3, 3, 1 ) (2, 2, 1 ) (3, 6, 4 ) (5, 1, 3 ) (4, 1, 6 ) (5, 3, 1 ) (4, 4, 1 )

How do you roll dice multiple times?

Type all dice rolls on the same line, each separated by a semicolon.
Ex: 3d6;3d6;3d6.

See the "help" tag below the dice roll box.

Is there any way to label rolls (e.g. Attack Roll 1d20+4; Damage Roll 1d6+3;)?

I'll check into it.

So, the "Notes" field adds it as a note above the roll (Proficiency Throw), but that's not necessarily the best thing for multiple rolls, unless the user is to come in and edit the post to add a second/third/fourth instance.

I'm not sure how solvable this is in the framework we have, but I'll investigate.

I actually think the edit is doable for the majority of rolls during a game. The only time it's really cumbersome is character creation, which involves a lot of rolls. Does everyone have edit privileges in the Play By Post sub-forum?

You may want to consider an external solution. I used PbP map for a long time for our play-by-post game, and they have a fairly robust rolling system, as well as a surprisingly handy map-making tool.

They do now (previously they could edit their own forum topic posts, now it's all their posts)

What is the technology behind the dice roller? I ask because I cannot see the dice roller results using Safari on iOS. I was wondering if another browser would support the dice roller on iOS, or if it is limited to Windows PCs (which is where I can see the dice roller; it may work on other platforms I don't use).

Internally, it's attaching the dice roll results as an entry in the database linked to the post in which it was made - as such, it's separate from the post itself and therefore not editable by anyone. 

I know it works in Chrome/FireFox on Windows (and IE) and Linux - the interface you see to it is a collapsible DIV class in CSS. 

You can't see the results (i.e., posts above have no dice rolls in them?) or you can't see the initial  'Roll Dice' option under the posting window (inbetween the bottom of the editing window and the "Save/Preview" button?
 
I don't know if I have an iOS device available to me to test with. If you could try Chrome on iOS and see if the behavior is different, that would narrow down our scope. Additionally, if you could send a screenshot of what you're seeing in Safari and Chrome when you try that to webmaster @ autarch.co, that'd help as well.

I can now view dice rolls on the forum using Safari on iOS, when logged in or not logged in. Thank you!

You have to make a comment before you can roll the dice.
