So Open Legend is mainly d20 based, with added dice from your attribute. Say, if you get a 1d8 from your attribute, then you roll 1d20+1d8. Easy enough.

But then there's advantage. (And disadvantage, but it works in a similar way.) When you have advantage, you add another of your attribute die, and you drop the lowest.

So with 1 advantage, it would become 1d20+(2d8, drop lowest 1). The d20 stays untouched. (Except for specific circumstances that don't matter here.)

My question is, on RPoL is there a way to do that in one roll? Because I can't find it. Or do I have to do two separate rolls, one for the base d20 and one for the attribute stuff, and add them manually?

(With more than 1 advantage/disadvantage you just add more die, it's irrelevant to my problem.)

You can use the Manual field at the top right of the roller to roll multiple different dice in a single roll,  For example 1d20+5 and 1d8 gives the result, "GM rolled 21,1 using d20+5,d8."

In reply to bigbadron (msg # 2):

I know that, but I want to roll 1d20 AND I want to roll (3d8, drop lowest) and add those two things together.

If I pick "drop lowest", the roller wants to apply that to both rolls. (And obviously gets angry at me because you can't drop lowest of 1d20.)

I can separately do "Roll 1: 1d20" and "Roll 2: 3d8, drop lowest" but it's...clunky.

Okay...  Well, the roller as it is currently can't do what you want, but you can put in a request in the RPoL Development forum, and jase will take a look and see how feasible it would be to tweak the roller so that it can habdle that.
