ALTERNATIVE DICE rolling for Play-by-Post games!

Message from the Moderator:
Admin's note: This is a pretty solid replacement for the DICE rolls ability we lost after the forum upgrade - I recommend all PbP Players/Game Masters start using it! Thanks to kabkal for finding it - admin

OK, so the site is not down, it was user error (two L's not one). It appears if you roll the dice to a room there is a log kept. So, ROLZ.ORG might meet the needs until dice can be brought back in.

To test:
  • Go to https://rolz.org/
  • Click on Try out the Dice room button
  • Scroll down to the Rolz Forum Bookmarklet section
  • Click the Dice Roll button - a new window pops up. In this window,
  • Enter nickname (character name from here)
  • Enter dice room name (kabkal1 is my test site now, but we would use a name similar to game name)
  • Enter dice roll like 1d20+5
  • Hit the Roll button
  • Copy the embeddable forum code . For example: Image
  • Click the Dice Roll button outside the dice roll window to close the window
To see the log of rolls:
  • Scroll up to the join a dice room section (upper right)
  • Enter the name and room used above
  • Join the room
You will see all of the rolls total. To see the individual die hover over the green :info

Not sure what happens to the log after today as I did all of the testing this morning.

Please know I have no affiliation with the site, just looking around. Not sure if it will meet our needs or not.

Sounds like an excellent alternative!
I do think rooms are kept - at least until there is no activity for some predefined period of time...

Game Masters of the PbP could setup rooms and shere the information with their players!
