Dice Roller - Earthdawn: Age of Legend
Could we have an Earthdawn: Age of Legend diceroller option?
This version follows the FU system with a little tweak...

Every roll uses the FU dice and can use some bonus or penalty dices but never both.

A FU dice is a 6 sided dice with values:
6: Yes and...
5: No but...
4: Yes
3: No
2: Yes but...
1: No and...

A bonus dice is a six sided dice
5-6: +
1-4: <nothing>

A penalty dice is a six sided dice
5-6: -
1-4: <nothing>

If you reach at least one + with your bonus dices it adds one to the odd values on the FU dice (and leaves the even rolls unaffected), so
5 -> 6
3 -> 4
1 -> 2

If you reach at least one - with your penalty dices it substract one from the even values on the FU dice (and leaves the odd values unaffected), so
6 -> 5
4 -> 3
2 -> 1

If you reach at least 2 + or 2 - results with your bonus or penalty dices the result on your FU dice will get an additional 'and...' for every 2 + or - (don't forget that you never roll both bonus and penalty dices)

For example:
FU+4, you roll 5(No but...) and ++
As you rolled at least one + 5->6(Yes and...) you also rolled 2 + which will add an and..., so the result is 'Yes and... and...'

As there is no limit on how many bonus or penalty dices you can get it is possible to reach longer values like 'Yes but... and... and... and...'

You can have rolls with only the FU dice too. I would suggest one field where you can add one value (positive or negative) what would represent the required bonus (positive) or penalty (negative) dices or it could be left empty to roll only the FU dice
