NEWBIE QUESTION - Custom dice and messages

Postby TLiciousX » October 9th, 2015, 1:20 am

My game needs 2 dice types, a white and a black each. Players have the option of rolling White White, White Black, or Black Black when attempting a Challenge.

The white dice is easy mode, it rolls +1, 0, 0, -1, -2
Black is harder, it rolls 0, 0, -1, -1, -2, -2.

I've already done the work of creating the three types of dice rolls (WW, WB, BB) for the player as a three different buttons; I could use some help in reporting the results to the player.

I guessed that I need to use Symbolic dice to do this, since my values are nonstandard. From there, hoping someone can help me out with the formula to report to the player what the result of each dice was. I'll trust them to do the math themselves.

Thanks in advance.

One other option would be to do all the combinations as a custom die and
just report the totals.
So, for example, the WW die would have values
2, 1, 1, 0, -1, 1, 0, 0, -1, -2, etc. until you have all combinations.

Looking closer at the forum structure I think my post is in the wrong place. Can a Mod move it for me? In a couple days I'll just delete and repost.

Thanks!
