Just a minor bug report - dice rolls above halfway up the chat box that are enough to take up 2 lines glitch out and flash open and closed repeatedly because the (i) icon moves away from your mouse, thereby closing it, and so the (i) moves back down, opening it again... | reply

This would be golden as an app for the phone. I use this for between my real sessions to keep things... rolling.. *groan*.
You have done a very cool thing here. | reply

When I try to roll stats for a D&D character using your site, the highest scores I get are 6's. I've rolled 4-5 sets of numbers, and each time they turn out to be 2,3,5,6,4,3 or something like that. I don't think your programming is totally up to speed.You might want to address this if you want people to use your site. | reply

I've used #3d6 and it gave me a 10, 14 and a 9...
which dice code do you use? (I am still learning all of this here, but being a DM I've been pouring over it to not let my group down and have the basics... I think) | reply

4d6h doesn't work properly. For example:

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

Looks like "R" additive re-rolling is not working. Tried 4D6R8 (or 4R8) and it never rolled over a 6 in 30+ attempts. But using 4M6 works fine. | reply

Love this, I'm using the API in conjunction with Alfred app to make quick dice rolls in my games. Saves a lot of time for lots of enemies.

For a query like "repeat 6 1d20", I can't work out if it's possible to construct the query string to get the API to parse it correctly. Any tips on getting that working? | reply

I've got two groups started and one is already role-playing. During the process of learning Rolz, I accidently started a few rooms that I will never use. How can I delete these rooms or more directly, remove them from my "forum posts/rooms" menu? | reply

Jul 03rd 18:27
Udo

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?

Best regards. | reply

Maybe, I don't know, it would probably break the site on mobile, but I guess I could do this eventually :) | reply

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

Jun 02nd 14:29
aegisblack

yeah man i think something is off...we are using d20 and i can't seem to get above 10 eighty percent of the time | reply

Jul 03rd 18:24
Udo

I can't reproduce this, when I generate things like 100d20, it's usually between 1000 and 1100, which seems normal to me. Also the distribution of the numbers seems fine to me. | 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.

-Eu guy. | reply

May 08th 00:39
Udo

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

Apr 19th 13:21
Udo

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

When I enter my credentials in Chrome, and try to log in, it gives me an error page. ("This page is not working.")

Then, if I hit "Refresh," it gives me the blank login screen again.

Then, if I hit "Dice Room" it acts normal, and goes to my dashboard.

This does NOT occur if I login with Microsoft Explorer. (The old one, Version 11.0.9600.18837)

So apparently, ROLZ doesn't work correctly with Chrome. Will there be a fix for this? I've been putting up with this for quite some time (a few months) and although I know how to bypass the error, it is inconvenient to be forced to do so.

Thanks! | reply

Hi there,

i tried to use the api, however i notice that you haven't set an Acces Controll header, meaning that the only viable option to use it is jsonp, even though multiple formats are supported. Is it possible to set the access-controll header?

Sincerely,

I'm playing shadowrun 5e and I wanted to see if I could use this to do some of the rolling but I'm having trouble getting it to work. I'm getting errors using (count=1 *d6e5). What I'm trying to do is get the system to tell me how many of * d6s are 5 or 6s thus sucesses and how many 1s were rolled so I can see if half or more were ones and thus this roll is a glitch. Eventually I'll also want to have a second one where all 6s are also rolled again for edge tests but one step at a time. | reply

is there a way to roll a large bulk of dice all at once? for example:

Hi!

I'm posting this to agree with Eli below me--not being able to rename myself "GM", or risking any kind of name being password-locked is kind of ridiculous. I love the chat interface and room wiki functions, but am torn between Rolz and Roll20/something else for literally only this reason.

Reducing restrictions to a room-by-room basis (so you can't have 2 people named GM, for example) would make Rolz my first choice for chatroom-based RPing. | reply

Oct 24th 17:49
Vedexent

Just a heads up that - at least in the lobby - the embedded die roll syntax ( e.g. "This is my D20 roll: [d20]" ) seems to be broken.

Trying to use this syntax causes the system to return no text at all: no speech, no die roll - it just appears that the person has said a blank line. | reply

Hello!

I use this site rather frequently for tabletop games, and while I enjoy the notion of having password protected nicknames, it is growing increasing frustrating to explain to my game masters why my name is not my characters as those names seem to just ever increasingly become password protected. It makes our sessions confusing for identifying who exactly is rolling,

So while the idea is nice, it is also, in my opinion, becoming a a nuisance to try and give yourself a nick for your in game character and the message of password protected keeps popping up. | reply

I may be missing something, but running the count command seems to display the sum of dice rather than the count of the results specified.
