Dice Roller

Post by 9thDoctor » Mon Jan 25, 2010 6:53 am

Hmm, I don't claim to know much about 'puters and what to do with them (except logging on to ATT and spend my time here).
But I noticed that using an external dice roller (like InvisibleCastle) is sometimes quite tedious in a Pbp game.

In the game I run here in the game room, one of the players uses an account on Paizo.com. They have a dice roller implemented in their forum.

Maybe this is possible here too? Would really ease gaming.

A Dice roller would be a great option for the Role Playing section, I added such a feature to a forum I Administrated and it was quite interesting. The legitimacy of the roles however, is not something I am sure of.
If I remember right, if you edit the post it re-rolls. While this prevents cheating it can be bothersome if you need to edit content within the post. That was my experience, and it was with a single roller so I can't judge accurately on this matter.

However I would like to see one implemented.
