Question on the die roller

Hi all,

Is there any write-up on how the in-forum die roller works? It seems strange to me. When I resubmit a post, it will re-roll? And sometimes the roll doesn't go through, and it just shows as an integer starting from 0 and going up.

I must be doing something wrong.

From my experience, resubmitting a post does NOT change the die roll. This would be to prevent cheating, I suppose.

Otherwise, it always works for me. Just hit the dice button, then type in how many dice of what kind you want to roll. The format is always the number of dice, the letter d, then the number of sides on each die. No spaces.

Like this:

1d6 = one six-sided die

3d20 = three twenty-sided dice

etc.

There's a guide here - https://www.callofcthulhu.org.uk/pbp/vi ... 318&t=5318
Note that the dice results don't show up when you preview posts. You have to submit it and then edit if you want to write up the results of your roll.
