How long is Rolz supposed to keep users logged in for? I keep finding myself signed out of private chatrooms and the like after only a few hours or so; it would be nice if I could stay logged in for much longer, on the order of a week at least. (It used to be a few days, I thought; but then again, maybe it's just because I'm more active now and my IP changes more frequently?) | reply

When a friend and I tried to join a dice room that we often use, it showed nothing on the side where the dice rolls are supposed to show except a little flashing square in the upper left corner. Is there something new that I don't know about or is there a glitch in the site? | reply

gen d20 is faulty, it gives 4d6h, i.e. the highest of 4d6 per attribute.
The dice code used should be 4d6h3 = the highest three of 4d6. | reply

RNG broken? Am testing both "gen d20" and "repeat 6 4D6H" and I'm getting < 10, every time.

Example:

repeat 6 4D6H => 6 ; 6 ; 4 ; 5 ; 5 ; 5
repeat 6 4D6H => 6 ; 4 ; 4 ; 6 ; 5 ; 6
repeat 6 4D6H => 6 ; 6 ; 5 ; 6 ; 5 ; 6

You will never get more than 6. 4D6H rolls 4 D6 and gives you the highest die. | reply

Good morning I am trying to produce several roll for Chronicles of Darkness (2nd Edition nWOD)

6d10 Target Number 8 Exloding 8

What is the proper code for this.

Thank you | reply

Is there a way to use to "Success functions" in one roll? I play World of Darkness and our rolls are all die 10. Any number above 7 is a success and 10 count as double successes. Basically it would be awsome if -5D10F7X10 worked.

Roll 5 d10. All Successes above 7 are counted and 1's are subtracted and 10s count twice.

Ive tried to read all the comands but can seem to find away to combine functions.

Any suggestions? | reply

Sometimes when I read the messages in a dice room, switch to a different internet browser tag, then switch back to the Rolz dice room window tag some of the previously posted messages is missing from the main chat room window. The missing text is still in the history tag, but I'm not entirely sure what's happening there. Sometimes it clips text from the beginning and shortens it all to look like I just logged in mid-conversation, other times it's missing other sent text lines in the middle of the active chat log window and there's a single time stamp in place of the missing messages instead. Still all readable in the history tag, but I was wondering if that was a glitch or something to do with internet connection issues? | reply

Additive Re-Rolling (i.e. 10D6R8) is NOT working.

A roll of 6 on a D6 should additive a re-roll to the 6 value (Roll a D6 get a 6, re-roll get a 3 = Rolled a 6+3 = 9 )

Right now it just stops on 6 on a D6. | reply

19. Jan 2019 19:03
J Doe

Looks like you now have to use EXPLOAD to do this...

So for a D6 to reach a target number 7+ it needs the EXPLOAD modifier. ('explode=max 10R8' would roll 10 d6, re-rolling 6s to possibly get the 8 target number). | reply

I am trying to find an online die roller that works with Firefly RPG. Basically the die roller here fails, because multiple die types are used in one roll and it is generating 2 highest die out of all the die types rolled. It also collects 1's and those are marked as jinxes and can be used as complications using a Plot Point (similar to Genesys Story Points or FFG SW RPG Destiny Points)

I can do the formula in Excel and get it to work, so there should be a way in an online dice roller. I can provide the code or .xls to show how.

Is this something that can be incorporated?

Basically need ( 1d6, 1d8, 1d10, 1d4 )H2 where it shows the highest 2 rolls of all the dice, and usually will all be different die types. That would be a start.. then a way to count 1's and make them so they are discarded from the total highest 2.. .. so if you roll a d8 and d6 and you roll a 1 and a 6.. the highest dice roll is only 6 (not 7) because 1's don't count other than as a jinx (like a crit fail, but your opposition has to spend something to make them into complications, otherwise they don't count at all).

If all 1's are rolled on the dice, it is called a botch, and results in 0 success, and real bad things happen. In some cases, like if you are injured and Taken Out of the scene, you can spend a Plot Point to take limited actions. While in limited actions, only the Highest 1 die is counted. All have to be shown in the result because players can spend PP on adding another one of the die results to the total. | reply

GM_Strangler

For some time now several rooms owned by me, and one owned by a friend, have been encountering a strange issue. Currently, only one dice roll is allowed per post, and when attempting to roll more than one die, the following (recently attempted) result appears:
GM_Strangler rolls 1d6 = 2 #1d6 #1d6

This causes the 2nd, 3rd, and all onward rolls to fail. One of our biggest rules stipulates that actions in a paragraph MUST be rolled in order, which.. this issue has effectively broken our speed-of-posting, forcing players and GM's into posting single rolls between paragraphs. Is this a known issue or something unique? | reply

Dear Udo

I made a discord bot solely for rolling through the rolz.org API…
If I can find a place to easily host it and run it from, may I?
Alternatively, if you want to host it, that'd be great.

If you don't want a rolz discord bot permanently hosted at all, that's fine, too.
If you already have a rolz bot, let me know, and I'll use it instead. | reply

For most purposes you can just ignore these rooms. If it's REALLY important to you, send me an email with the room names, but even if I purge the rooms, they'll stay in your list. However, since the most recently used rooms always go to the top of the list, it should probably be fine... | reply

Hello!

Switched to this site for some of my RPGs and I'm really happy with it so far. However, my only complain about it is that since my group tends to like making big posts, reading and reviewing them is hard without being able to type on new lines or on a text box that shows more than one line, respectively. Are these something you intend on eventually implementing?

Hello,
I’m curious if something had changed in the rolling algorithms recently (in the last few months maybe)? The rolling seems to became more chaotic and less resembling normal distribution. We are playing WoD where you roll several dice and get “successes”, and it may be just me, but now the weird “minimaxed” rolling sequences like 9 9 9 2 1 9 8 7 or 5, 2, 8, 4, 1, 1, 3, 3, 3, 7 seem to appear way too often. I ran a few tests on the Rolz main page, and it does appear to be an issue, and not just a stroke of (bad) luck. | reply

I'm also using an iPhone and I don't have any issues. While Rolz isn't exactly designed for mobile, it should work. You didn't give me a lot to go on either. I'll need a description of what problems you are actually experiencing. | reply

when you add modifiers i.e. 1d20+5 the mod is set as equal to zero so the roll comes out as wrong. | reply

Heya,

I see you have a equal to and greater formula. Is there something like a equal to and under?

For example, in a quest that I follow, it has a Talent Number and in order to count cultivation successes, it's every roll that's equal to your talent no. and lower for successes. So if you talent number is, say, 6, 1-6 = successes, but 7-10 = failures. | reply

I have read the law, the citizen brief made available to us. Not the full document introduced to the Union (yet.)

First and foremost; this website is not a business. It would be considered a private, non commercial website, and these laws target companies. (Registered and all, operating in the EU or having trade deals in place legitimizing working in the EU and of course, being subject to EU laws whilst doing so.) Because you are not a "Service provider." in the term of a contract (Tit for Tat) But rather a free to use tool online using donations i do not think you are subject to the penalties or obligations.

Secondly in regards to liability, I think you lawyers was commenting on: (Art. 33-34 of the Regulation)

"If your data is lost or stolen, and if this data breach could harm you, the
company causing the data breach will have to inform you (and the relevant data
protection supervisory authority) without undue delay. If the company doesn’t do
this, it can be fined. Recent attacks, such as WannaCry, Meltdown and Spectre, or
the Uber case show how important this new right is."

That is to say if Damages WERE suffered, proven by court, and willful ignorance or attempts to cover up the breach, proven in court sanctions will be filed. But, because you are not a for-profit anything. But i also do not think your site (as far as i can see) stores any information that could "Hurt" a person. People do not have secrets hidden here, banking information, credit cards? Home adresses?

And (Art. 12-14 of the Regulation)

A right to receive clear and understandable information
about who is processing your data, what data they are processing and why they are
processing it.

I do not reckon you store much information, but you will need to have one of those anoying eula's or pop up saying. "We have cookies, store your ip for future visits and do not do anything with th is information, the Eu has asked me to be annoying so click on the TRIANGLE, not the X to say "Ok man. what ever let me roll dice."


It is my opinion that you will be fine, but asking lawyers who understands EU laws and your specific obligation is a good step to ensure you manage your risks.

I have been using your site recently and hope to continue to use the work of your great efforts in the comming years.

Stay calm, be good, and be cool man.

Charles, thanks for taking the time to post some advice about this. While I am personally reasonably sure that Rolz is not in violation of the spirit of the data protection laws, my personal risk due to operating the site has undoubtedly increased now. I have taken some steps to hopefully limit the damage that can be done to Rolz.

I do not believe, however, there is sufficient grounds to distinguish legally between a company and an individual providing a service, even if that service is not for profit. As an EU citizen, I'm personally responsible for any and all liabilities that arise out of Rolz. It is my understanding that a European court will not treat hobbyists differently from corporations. Even assuming that I'd win in the end, the mere act of defending myself against a lawyer specializing in for-profit complaints is financially precarious for me.

As I posted elsewhere, I have taken some minimal steps to hopefully limit my personal exposure. Blanket geoblocking the EU isn't going to happen anymore, however, I will be blocking access from Germany, because that is where most of the danger is coming from. | reply

Hey dude, I don't really understand what you're saying with your latest message, but nothing in any EU legislation would stop EU residents from accessing this site, their is no legal issue.

All the best | reply

Max, I'm not sure if Rolz exposes me to liability, and the lawyer I talked to (who was admittedly not very good) said that the site really needs to be run by a limited liability company, one that is preferably not registered in the EU. I'm definitely getting a second opinion on this... | reply

Ashandarei, since user accounts are not linked to anything else (like email addresses for example), the only way to go about this is to register another user account. | reply
