Hmm. Interesting.

While I like it, I won't use it as a DM, because... well, because I have a thing about online rolling vs. real dice.
It's not that it's not random enough, but rather that it's too random and open.

If I want real results, I'll either do it myself, or trust that my players will roll and truthfully relate what they get.

However, I suppose if I ever do a "hard" game, this will be useful.

I'm not saying I don't appreciate it (I would), but I won't be using it.

Although, come to think of it, this might be good in Atropos, when I expect to have a lot of rolls that can be perfectly random and ruthless, so I will likely use it then.

As a side note, it would be nifty if [roll]1d6+1d10+3[/roll] or similar things were incorporated, for certain damage rolls and such.

Edit: Also, I may just be unaware of some mischief inherent in not using this rule, but what is "You can't add rolls to an existing post." needed for?
Sleepy cat is sleepy.
