SLA Industries 2nd edition - Dice Roller
Hey there,

The second edition of SLA Industries has a new dice rolling mechanism. Not sure if its something common elsewhere. It's quite complex, not sure if it can be implemented somehow. All dice are d10.

There is a single success dice and a number of skill dice (max 5) based on a players skill and stat combined.

There are several target numbers to aim for based on the difficulty of the task
Simple: 4
Challenging: 7
Complex: 10
Strenuous: 13
Insane: 16

In this small example, the operative has a Complex task to perform. He/she has a combined skill/stat rating of 5.

He/she rolls the success dice and scores a 6, adds the combined skill/stat rating of 5 to achieve a total result of 11. This means the test is a success. If it had been less than 10, the test would be a fail.
He/she also rolls one skill dice for each point in the skill she he/she has plus an additional 1. In this example, the character has a skill of 2, so an additional 3 skill dice are rolled.

They come up as:
4+5 (fail)
6+5 (pass)
7+5 (pass)

Number of Dice Equal/Exceed Target Number
Success DieSuccess
+1 Skill DieExcellent Success
+2 Skill DiceExceptional Success
+3 Skill DiceIncredible Success
+4 or more SkillDice Unbelievable Success

This means that the character has had an exceptional success.

There are additional modifiers which may be placed upon each dice (negative or positive).

It's a complex beast, and no games are currently on rpol that utilise it currently.

This is an implementation of the request,  it obviously no way for me to track success or failure

I've actually been quietly testing this (it's on the beta site) but one thing the linked roller does that hasn't been outlined is the "success through experience" option.  There seems to be some unique outcomes with:

Success die failing but 4+ skill rolls succeeding.  This the mentioned "success through experience".
Success die failing and all skill rolls failing.  "Serious failure"
Success die failing but 1-3 skill rolls succeeding.  Just "failure".

There also seem to be a bunch of different phrases it uses, are these correct?  "Simple success" was one that popped up.

Happy to clone what it's outputting but I don't want to copy something if it's a phrase/mechanic the system doesn't actually use.

Four skill rolls gives success through experience if all are equal to or higher than the target number.
Correct on the serious failure
Correct on the "failure"

Simple success is when the success die passes, but all skill rolls fail.

Thanks, think I got it.  It's now available on the beta as well as the responsive site (I can't make the changes required to the traditional site as all code changes are now for the responsive site).

Would it be possible to have a target number instead of descriptive for the complex/simple etc?

Iíve just come up against the first issue. Itís actually possible to have 0 rating in a skill. However, rolling using the input of 10 0s+1 throws up an error code.
