*And so it came to pass...*
I am now happy to announce that I finished adding this much-requested feature to the boards. I have added a die-roller in the form of a bbcode:

[roll]**X**d**Y**+**Z**[/roll]

**OR**

[roll=**F**]**X**d**Y**+**Z**[/roll]

This notation is a familiar and standard die rolling notation used in many RPG books. Where

**X** is the number of die to be rolled (1 if omitted)
**Y** is the number of faces of the die, and
**Z** is a modifier which could be positive or negative
**F** is a special feature __only__ available to GM's. **F** is the desired result that a roll should have. This is also referred to as *fudging a roll*.

For example,

**d4** or 1d4 means roll 1 four sided die
**3d6** means roll 3 six sided dice and add them together.
**3d6+2** means roll 3 six sided dice, add them together and then add 2.

The roller also will support a couple of standard shortcut notations as well, for instance,

**4d6b3** means roll 4 six sided dice and only sum the best *(highest)* three dice.
**d%** means roll a percentage roll, equivalent to 1d100.

The number of sides and number of dice are essentially unlimited (

*depending on how big an integer this particular machine can handle, but that's beyond the scope of this article*). So, using the [roll] bbcode, you can enter dice rolls into your posts.

Following are some example die rolls and their resulting output:

[roll]4d6[/roll] :

16
[roll]d%[/roll] :

39
[roll]1d20+5[/roll] :

15
A few more - and rather important - notes:

- Due to the layout that dierolls have (dotted underline with tooltip), it is impossible to mimick them with already existing bbcodes.
- You can't add rolls to an existing post.
- You can't use preview the roller.
- Posts can easily be edited without affecting existing rolls that are in the post.
- When you remove rolls however, a message will be appended to the post indicating there is an inconsistency.
- In order to prevent people from rearranging the rolls or use one roll multiple times within a post, each roll has a numbered prefix in the tooltip that appears when you hover over the roll. This allows GM's to spot any such attempts at cheating.

This results in a pretty decent cheating-free feature that should've been part of this board from the beginning...

Enjoy and I appreciate any feedback.
