Mini Feature: Dice Command

Hey folks, in this update, we add a very small feature. When the chat dialog is open, you can now type "!" followed by a dice roll to populate the dice tray with those dice.

dice command


This currently uses the same rather limited dice descriptor strings as the dice URLs. However, when we tackle proper dice macros, this feature will be upgraded to support them.

While there is a technical description of the dice URL scheme here, it's not very approachable. Instead, here are a few examples.

  • !d12 One D12
  • !3d12 Three D12s
  • !2d8-d12 2D8s minus one D12
  • !3d4+5 3D4s plus five
  • !Strike:d20 A dice group called "Strike" composed of one D20
  • !d20/2d4 Two dice groups. One composed of one D20, and another composed of two D4s

We hope this is useful to some, even in this period before full dice-macro support.

ALSO! For those who want to ask a question during Thursday's dev stream but cannot make it, we have added a channel in our discord server for you. Simply drop your question in #dev-stream-questions, and we'll do our best to address it on the stream.

Until next time,

Peace.

This is a leap I've been hoping for! I also hope that eventually math (modifiers) of some kind will be added so as to reduce math even more.

This is amazing. The only thing extra i can wish is the possibility to combine macros in a single roll. My friend plays a rogue and sometimes he has to consider several factors to add one dice here, another there, etc, etc.

Any word on when we'll get custom dice? Even just custom numbers on the faces would support a lot more game systems

Rolling dice without having to use an external app is kinda the point of TS, been waiting for a few years now >.<

So true, and I'd be lying if I said I have an update for you. 

We'll be talking a bit about this on the stream, but there is about to be a significant effort to sort and organize the feature requests and bugs, and with that I hope we'll do a better job of getting to these goals. 

We'll do our best. Thanks so much for your patience thus far.

It's honestly the last feature I need to play a campaign online with my friends so I'm looking forward to it ^.^

I'm spending my weekends on a character sheet webapp that integrates with your url api. Obviously it's WIP, but I can't wait to share with other people in the discord channel when it's somewhat ready.
You can roll dices pretty much like dndbeyond, but inside Talespire.

That sounds awesome! Can't wait to see it! Please post it somewhere else, such as here, so we don't miss the release.
