were you all aware that you can code your rolls in the IC die roller to account for exploding AD (by typing 1d6.extra(6)? If you do please excuse me I'm pleased that I just found this out after all the time using it. I actually registered on the site today after noticing the gaps in my rolls yesterday and now today, maybe it's b/c I was just rolling anonymous all this time. So I was spending a little time reading and paying attn to what you can do with the roller b/c it's a little frustrating that it looks like I'm rolling and then taking the roll I like.

Thanks for pointing it out.  Try using .open() instead of .extra().  It is a better option for action dice.

If you use:
Code: [Select]
1d6.extra(6)it will add 1 extra d6 to the total if you roll a 6 or greater on the initial roll.  However, if the second roll is also a 6, it won't add a third die, it only ever rolls one extra die.

Example: 1d6.extra(6) → [[6, 6]] = (12)

If you use:
Code: [Select]
1d6.open(6)it will add 1 extra d6 to the total if you roll a 6 or greater on the initial roll AND it will continue to add extra dice so long as you keep rolling a 6 or greater.

Example: 1d6.open(6) → [[6, 6, 6, 4]] = (22)
Don't follow your passion.  Take it with you.

I'd like to say that I understand you're all on about, but I totally don't. It looks like algebra to me.

And don't waste energy trying to explain it to me, cos today i'm just not gonna get it...  :-\

Currently Thurinir, has 10.6 Lb more than he can comfortably carry. Anyone want to carry some rations? (Hobbits need not apply).

Just leave'em in the saddlebags. We're fairly unlikely to run into a 'we need item X now or we're all going to die!' situation with them.

Right, this seems like a good spot to pause the game.

WIth the recent move and our new baby arriving in the next few weeks, I just don't have the time to devote to this that i'd like. Rather than not doing it justice, are you all cool with putting it on hold for a month or three?

Apologies for having to ask guys.

Sounds good to me, too. Better to take the time getting the move and baby sorted out than worry about Hobbitses and dragons (though I know which would be more fun ;) ).
