Dice rolling
« on: November 09, 2017, 10:01:05 am »
since this game is semi free form roleplaying. there will be times when dice rolling will be necessary, but not too often. most actions and results will simply be automatic. but in the following cases there will be the need to roll the bones:

   using any trait on another character played by a forum member
   any form of combat
   other issues as determined :)

and since this is a forum based game. we need a way to roll dice so here it is: https://dicelog.com/maildice for verification they can be all sent to zipperbro at deryni dot net

Just to clarify, your email address just goes in the "Send results to" field, but we still need to register our own email address info, yes?  Otherwise, we would need your password also if we're using your email address for the "Your mail" field, and I'm assuming that is not what you want us to do.  :D

to clarify my email would go in the send results to field. your email and password (not your email password) but the registration password with the site would go in those fields

Tested that. Took a few tries to get it right. The roll that worked was 6+1=7. Haha.

1. On the page Bynw linked to, first click on the link to the registration page to register your email address and password. (This is free.)  Follow the directions on that page. IIRC, after you do, you may get an email with a link to click on to confirm your registration.  At least a lot of registrations work that way, and I think this did too. For security reasons, use a different password for this site than you use when logging into your email. That way if this website is ever hacked, the hacker can't use the same password to hijack your email address. (Best practice is never to use the same password on more than one website, but let's be real, how many people actually follow best practice every single time?)

2. Once you have registered your email address and password, then use those on the page Bynw linked to.  His email address goes in the box that asks who you want results sent to.  The type of dice roll you want is usually 2d6, unless you have an advantage (3d6) or disadvantage (1d6).

If that isn't clear enough to get you results, I'll try to explain more clearly when I have a computer in front of me so I can actually see what I'm talking about.  ;D

It did work. I got the email!

Just remember the important rule when it comes to rolling the dice.
1d6 is at a Disadvantage
2d6 is Standard
3d6 is at an Advantage

The total of the dice doesn't matter in most cases. It's just the individual rolls. And there we are looking for a 5 or a 6. Anything else doesn't help.
