    If there is enough interest (ie GM's) we could start a PF society using pbp. Something where we have a standard set of house rules, and GM's mostly run short modules meant to be advance people 1-2 levels. People can play in as many or as few games as they like. They way i've seen it work is that new members are allowed 1 character and known members are allowed up to 3. GM's simply post new games and target character levels and applicants apply showing interest in joining. All the characters and adventures exist in the same world, which would allow for persistent inventory.

    We would need at least 3 GM's dedicated to having at least one module every other month to make it work, as well as two GM's who have the specific positions of High Keeper of the Character Sheets (approval of new characters/ helping new people make characters), and Grand Poobah of the Fine Print (the guy who makes rulings on unclear rules and unforeseen happenings).

    I am totally in. I dont mind any of the roles. I don't just running adventures for players, managing character sheets, or being rules arbiter. Whatever is needed

    !roll :: Roll dice in your roleplaying games.

    To roll dice, specify the number of dice and the number of sides. The result is the sum of the dice. The following rolls three 6-sided dice.
    !roll 3d6

    You can add or subtract multiple rolls or numbers.
    !roll 1d20+3
    !roll 1d20-2
    !roll 1d20 + 1d6
    !roll 1 + 3 + 1d4

    If you only want to include a certain number of the highest or lowest dice in your sum, specify a high or low count in the roll. The following keeps the best three of four 6-sided dice and sums them. The next keeps only the lowest die.
    !roll 4d6H3
    !roll 4d6L1

    If you only want to count how many dice met a target value instead of the sum of the dice, you can specify a <, <=, =, >=, or > relationship and a target value. The following rolls five 20-sided dice and counts how many of them rolled at least 10. The next rolls four 6-sided dice and checks to see if the one highest die was exactly equal to 3.
    !roll 5d20>=10
    !roll 4d6H1=3

    To label a roll so that it is easy to read your results, add a # and a label after the roll. The following will roll one 20-sided die, add 2 to the result, and label the result Attack.
    !roll 1d20+2 #Attack

    You can repeat a roll N times by adding *N right after the roll. The following will roll one 20-sided die and label the result Spot a total of four times.
    !roll 1d20 *4 #Spot

    Add a ? to the end of a roll to see verbose output. This will list each of the individual die rolls in addition to the final total.
    !roll 3d6?
    !roll 4d6H3?
    !roll 5d20>=10 + 1?

    Note that all of the above must appear in the order it has been introduced. For example, the label must be last, and if there is a repetition * then it must come before the ? verbose marker.

    Finally, although you can use the !roll trigger multiple times in a row in a post, you can combine them all into one line by separating each roll expression with a semicolon. The first line of the following is identical to the remaining lines run all at once.
    !roll 1d20+2 #Attack; 1d20 #Critical; 4d6? #Damage
    !roll 1d20+2 #Attack
    !roll 1d20 #Critical
    !roll 4d6? #Damage

    If you omit the dice, a default of 1d20 will be assumed. This means that the following rolls one 20-sided die and shows the result. The next would also label that result Attack.
    !roll
    !roll #Attack

    You can copy the example triggers above and paste them into a post to see the results on your own.

    i was hoping you'd say that, I think you know the rules better than anybody else in the Vault. And i could totally be down with helping new player creation and keeping track of character sheets. Let's see if more people sign up to be GM's (looks pointedly at Cheese).
