We will be using The Unseen Servant for dice rolls.

The site is easy to use once you learn the format for entering what roll you want it to make. Follow this link for information on how to format your input.

After you make your roll, please copy the PbP Forum Code for your roll and paste it into your post.

I've noticed that unseen servant will not accept more than five die rolls in a single input. Given that a D&D character has six stats, you'll need to split it up.

The "macro" for rolling 4d6 and keeping the top three looks like this: [4d6k3]
So you will want to enter: [4d6k3], [4d6k3], [4d6k3] . The output will be three numbers between 3-18. Do that twice and you have a set of stats that you can then put in whatever order best fits your PC.

The macro for combat rolls should look something like this:
Initiative: [1d10+3], To Hit (Longsword): [1d20+1], Damage (Longsword): [1d8+2]
When doing your inputs, go ahead and include the damage roll. If you miss, you miss, and the damage roll won't get used. But including it saves having to figure out whether or not to do another roll.

Enter the macro and click the gold die and it will take you to a second screen with your results and a bulletin board code to post in the forum. The bb code will look like this when you copy and paste it:
[ url=http://www.unseenservant.com/default.asp?do=showone&id=202267&macid=0]Initiative: [1d10+3] = 2+3 = 5, To Hit (Longsword): [1d20+1] = 9+1 = 10, Damage (Longsword): [1d8+2] = 5+2 = 7[/url ]
(I've added some extra spaces to make it visible here.)

And once you make your post, it will look like this:
Initiative: [1d10+3] = 2+3 = 5, To Hit (Longsword): [1d20+1] = 9+1 = 10, Damage (Longsword): [1d8+2] = 5+2 = 7
If you mouse over the line above, you will see that it is a hyperlink to the unseen servant site, which shows that the rolls are valid.
