Hey Obsidian Portal Community,
I'm re-posting the material regarding the beta release campaign forum dice rolling here so that it's easier to access; but also so that we have a space for user feedback and discussion. So please feel free to give it a whirl, try it out, give us suggestions, feedback, ideas, criticisms, whatever the case may be.
As something of a new trial stage in our development process, we’ve released a beta version of a new feature for the Ascendant users out there (particularly play-by-post folks I’d imagine). This feature is live right now, and we invite everyone to try it out and give us your feedback. The feature: dice rolls in campaign forum posts of course! These rolls are saved to the post, have unique IDs, and cannot be changed or deleted by the players. There are also fudge options for the GM!
(wow, Thallos might just be in trouble there…) So how does it all work? As seen in the image, there’s a basic format to the rolls with the beginning of the roll being [dice] and the end of the roll being [end-dice]. The full syntax looks like this:
That said, here are a few examples:
The basic functionality for the rules regarding the rolls operates as follows:
Again, please note that this feature is still in the “beta” phase, and we encourage users to report any bugs they may encounter; as well as any updates they’d like to see, or other feedback they may have. This is your chance to impact not only the development of a feature on Obsidian Portal, but to impact the way in which features are developed!
