Advanced RPG Dice Rolling & Fields

Post by perfectSTORM! on January 7th 2014, 4:41 am

Hello Forumotion! SmileThis idea just popped into my head while I was thinking about using the Dice Rolling for my site. You see, it is Hunger Games based, and since "may the odds be ever in your favour", I thought that it would be cool if the Tributes in our Games would sometimes have random outcomes in fights or something. But I was wondering a few things:

1. What if the Dice had sides with text on it, not just images? So basically, you know when you go to edit a dice, it says "add an image", and all of that? What if instead, you could choose to put text, using the regular editor as if you were making a post, and you could say what the whole post would be if the member would get that side of the die as an outcome.

2. What if the Dice corresponded with the RPG Sheet feature automatically? So everyone knows that it's a pain to have to go through and manually change fields for each member sometimes, especially if your site is constantly using the Dice, and each outcome means you have to put in different numbers, and all of that. But what if there was an option that the Dice actually had a system with the RPG Sheet and it would update it?

Example:

Let's say I roll the dice. My outcome is a 5. The rules say:
- 4 or below, -8 Health Points
- 5 or above, -6 Health Points

Okay, so because I got a five, then the field would automatically update and subtract the six points. Let's say I had 100 Health Points before I rolled. Then now my Health Points would be 94/100.

--These were just some ideas, and I hope you like them.. You all can expand or what have you however you want. Smile

I voted 'yes'.

I'd like it to automatically update much like our posts, the points, the reputation, etc., have done all along. Can it really be done as described by Silver Cloak? Otherwise having some sort of tally as to how many times a member rolled the dice would be a nice alternative.
