Dice Roller option request
Seeing as how there is a dice roller option for Reroll Max (additional die after rolling the highest possible number and adding to the total), could there also be a Reroll Min (additional die after rolling the lowest possible number and subtracting from the total)?  This is related to Cyberpunk Red.

Dice Roller option request
To note, what the roller would need to do is:

In the event a 1 on a d10 roll, add the roll + amount, then roll an additional d10 and subtract it from the previous sum.

Sounds more like we need to add in a new system roll mechanic, rather than just reroll min (which i think would lead to confusion).

CyberPunk RED also needs an 'exploding' 10.  Basically this system (and a few others) need Explosive and Implosive dice, "reroll but add on [HIGHEST], reroll and subtract on [LOWEST]".

Also if there is some way to set it so "explode" and "implode" can be chosen via the drop down?  And so multiple general rules can be implemented at one time (without having to know which system uses them together)?  As well as allowing say "Drop lowest, Reroll highest" for instance?

I know, I know, why not ask for everything all at once...  (I figure some of this might require a UI tweak, and if you're in there tweaking one thing...)

Re: Dice Roller option request
Think I got RED in correctly.  On the beta and responsive sites as per usual.

No option for imploding die (yet).

Re: Dice Roller option request
I just tried it out on the Responsive Site, and seem to have found an issue.  I am getting an error stating "You cannot have a die modifier with the Cyberpunk RED system."  The ruleset uses a 1d10+modifier, exploding on crit successes and imploding on crit fails.

I also noticed the following error:
22:33, Today: Game Master rolled -11 using the Cyberpunk RED system rolling 1d10 ((1{-10-2})).
This shows the natural 10 adding a second reroll.  That should not happen.

Also, in all my rolling, I have noticed another issue.  My luck is awful.  Can you fix that?

Edit: Also, the system has a few rolls that do not implode or explode.  Initiative and Damage (1d10+mod and Xd6 respectively).  For this reason, an option for 'imploding' would be more efficient (from the outside perspective, of course).  And your work here is very appreciated!

Re: Dice Roller option request
So implode and explode don't cascade, just the one reroll?

Edit: I've done the above, hopefully it's right.

Re: Dice Roller option request
Correct, there is only one reroll in any given roll.  No cascading, just the single extra d10 added or subtracted.  I rolled some more dice and quickly got another 1 with a 10 as the reroll, looks like it's set correctly now.  Thanks!
