There was this one site that allowed you to record your dice rolls, so that you could show them to other players in PbP and demonstrate that you are not, in fact, cheating, but I have forgotten its name. Can anyone remind me?

Orokos is the most popular one around here.

Its default functionality covers a big range of mechanics, from D&D to L5R to Shadowrun to FATE, plus supporting several games with custom dice (Fantasy Flight's Star Wars and Warhammer Fantasy, Double Cross, King of Tokyo, etc). They also have integrated character D&D 4E sheets that work with the character builder files, either version.

There's also Invisible Castle, but frankly it's not as good.

Once per turn, you can Tribute 1 WATER monster you control (except this card) to Special Summon 1 WATER monster from your hand. The monster Special Summoned by this effect is destroyed if "Raging Eria" is removed from your side of the field.


Orokos is an amazing troll.

Early in the Princes of the Apocalypse pbp I swear off Orokos and immediately afterward it spits out 4 natural ones for other people in the party. Orokos is a harsh mistress.

I too just had a terrible spate of virtual dice luck in a 4E PbP thanks to Orokos where out of six successive attack rolls, only one rolled higher than a 3.

I'm always quietly surprised that Invisible Castle is still around. I used it for years but it also hasn't been updated in years and it seems like it's down just about every other week. I think the number of times Orokos has gone down for me I can count on one hand. Plus if you want to play things like FFG's Star Wars it's pretty much the only game in town.

I'll slaughter the guy who made it for the fact I rolled thrice the number of natty ones than twenties on the 4e games I'm in.

I'm thinking about running a Warbirds game. Never played or ran one before but I'm curious about how it plays after snagging it during a sale.

For those that have it, what's your opinion on how pbp friendly the system is?

Not sure if it still counts as "ongoing", but Doc Idle's fallout game finally died today (due mostly to old age). That dude ran it like a champ, and I was happy to play. For anyone looking to read it, I'd stop when we blow out of Neo Nash. It's the real ending, and everything else was just icing.

I had someone play as a custom class I was working on and was thinking about asking for feedback from the group but it's kind of early. Mostly it was a humblebrag. At this point I'd get more out of people listing Han Solo/Robin Hood things.

Not like a vampire but one of the mook races, like a zombie, or a skeleton, or a ghost.

You know what I'd like to try out? A full party composed only of traditional evil races. Humans, elves and dwarves either don't believe, don't notice or don't care that a Great Evil is awakening, and so it falls to a gnoll hunter, an orc shaman, a goblin that somehow got its hands on a lute and a kobold warlock to save the day.

I feel it is appropriate to use D&D, since having the heroes be members of interchangeable mook races is a sort of poetic justice.
