This post will help you work with the dice roller that RPGCrafters uses!

Basics

The dice roller functions on a Xdy+ OR - z System. Such as 1d20+5.

This needs to be put into BBcode for the forum to see it - the code can either be entered by pressing the Dice button in a full post/edit or by typing
Code:
[dice]xdy+10[/dice]
in it.

This should get you through most basic uses with the dice roller.

Details

You can roll a maximum of 20 dice in a single roll.

There are a maximum of 20 rolls in a single post.

You can do a single math operation - addition, subtraction, multiplication.


Advanced Commands

There are a few things you can do to modify your rolls and how it displays or making it more applicable.

To add a tag to your roll (a modification] after the dice put = and add the tag.

Total - The total tag has it display only the total, not the string that leads to it. This means you will not see the individual dice but only the total.
Code:
You use it like this:
[dice=total]10d6[/dice]


Quote - The quote tag is used if you need to pull a roll you already into another part while keeping the same number. Each rol is assigned a number when rolled ( 0 through 19) depending on the order. You say which one you want the Dice Quote to use and it will quote the roll and place it there.
Code:
You use it like this:
[dice=quote]0[/dice] this will reference the first roll in the post



Well have at it everyone! Please feel free to use this thread for any testing or questions.

change it from string to total. String shows all the variables total just the net result. as to contain the number of dice thats another story
