Maybe this? Just saw it after a quick search.
Login to save roll
You need to log in to manage campaigns.
You need to log in first.
If you register on the left, you can create a campaign, which allows a group of people to share a single dice roller.
Uh-huh.
There are a few but they require accounts for obvious reasons. I mean I could find a roller that totally links you to a rolled outcome, but who is to say I didn't keep rolling until I got a URL that says I rolled a Natural 20?

Just roll for me or I'll report same made up figures.  :P
If we're going to sign up and dash off to another board, I feel like Mythweavers is a given since it hosts games/sheets and not just dice. I'm shocked it wasn't RD's first hit.

Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

... I feel like the point was "find somewhere to roll dice for now" not "find a completely different website".

I hate mythweavers and am optimistic about the dice rolling getting fixed eventually.  The honor system can have issues so Raineh has the right of what I was looking for.

Umm... I think I agree? Not sure, here I'll just take the option that says, "I'd rather not have to sign up to yet another different website and manage it's password just to roll some dice."

If that's what you like, I just need to talk someone into rolling some d20s every now and then. If not, I already have an account on Myth maybe I can roll in someone's thread.

Password managers are a thing. And I was just looking for something that didn't require involvement in an entire forum but did allow for campaign rolls.

See? That's why I felt like I had to be specific rather then simply saying yes. You'll complain about moving to another site but you're totally up for (partly) moving to another site. >.>

Eh we can still use it. You can hash out the date/time of a post with a phase from Nan and crunch it into a die roll. As long as Nan mentions the phase after you posted there is no way for you to predict the outcome. Through Nan could if he really wanted to try (unless we double blind it).

I think you're getting too complicated SorO.   :P


As I see it we have three options.  I looked for an online dice roller that doesn't require a login but still saves link-able rolls and couldn't find one so that's out.

Option 1: We use an online dice roller with a shared login for the game.

Option 2: Everyone just spouts numbers at each other and everybody trusts everybody.

Option 3: I spout all numbers, including yours, because I'm the boss.   :p


Option 3 feels like it would lessen player enjoyment.  Option 1 feels like it would be extra work and slow things down even more than it already is.

I think we're stuck with Option 2.  Thoughts?

Nahhhh.
I favor option 2, and you'll have the option of challenging them since I already wrote a script that can do a single die for proof concept.  :P

I was hoping the die roller would be fixed by now but it seems not. 

Everyone just roll dice and don't cheat.   :p

You sense that he's more lucid than the lunatic you dealt with previously but isn't lying.

What a shock: when the second guy reports a dracolich, maybe he's not crazy. Or maybe there are some big illusions going on. :lmao

Oh you're still convinced this guy is crazy.  He's just not going to attack you if you ask him too many questions like the last crazy guy.   :P

I just found out that the forum roller is working again if that's been holding anyone back from posting.

Nah, I just feel like the old Crones are probably going to give me the run around until they die. It's probably what they do.

Nothing happens to you Raineh.


Okay, I'm going to help everyone out a little bit because things are slow because we're in the social part of the adventure.

All elders have now been identified by piecing together what you've been told and what some of you are dealing with.  Not everyone knows who is who, but if you've talked to any of these people you now know they are an elder:
 - Crones at the Firepit (count as a single elder for the purposes of talking to)
 - Warsh at the Landing
 - Ulberto at the Smokehouse

There are no other elders.  There is no way to fail the adventure without dying so don't feel like you're obligated to do anything.
