For anyone who needs to use our Dice Roller for their games, please read the following:
RoA utilizes the VDice plugin, and has a few of the suggested tweaks from the creator enabled. There's a few ups and downs to it.
This plugin only works in posts. You can't roll dice in the shoutbox.
The syntax for rolling is (roll=range), where:
The parentheses are square brackets (BBCode format)
Range is one of the following
dS -- rolls a single die with S faces valued from 1 to S NdS -- rolls N dice, where each die has S faces valued from 1 to S NdS+F -- rolls N dice, where each die has S faces valued from 1 to S, and adds F to the total (If F=0, this functions like NdS)
The total is calculated automatically once you hit post.
So for example, I'm going to roll two 20 sided die, and add 13 to their total
It going to look like (roll=2d20+13), just with square brackets instead of parens.

It worked! I've enabled dynamic range, so you should be able to roll dice of any kind, and it will show.
wIr|qlB91d6 -- d6 1d12 --d12 1d10 --d10
Mixing dice is not enabled, obviously, so if you wanted to roll a d6 and a d20, you'd just do it on two separate lines. See the last post. And you can add text in between dice so players know what you're rolling for.
If using the full editor on a post, you should also see a dice button at the far right of the box, which will allow you to enter your range and enter the code automatically for you. However, it can only add one at a time.1d6·1d12·1d10
Sometimes you want to roll different dice together, like if you have a longsword that adds additional cold damage. 1d8 for the longsword, 1d6 for the cold damage. So 1d8+1d6 is the damage, but I don't know of any dice rollers that can do that, even on Enworld.
