I’m happy to recommend Roll With Me.xyz as a good solution for making intelligent dice rolls online.
What do I mean by intelligent? Well, thoughtful and wise.
Roll With Me starts by creating a “room” or joining someone else’s. If you know the URL, then you can join the room.
A point and click interface then lets users select dice and roll them, and a history feature records each roll. These rolls can be annotated with a name “Death save” or “Spot trap”, for example. Modifiers can be applied.
If your system uses tokens or you have a stat that goes up and down a lot (hit points, magic points, etc.) then Roll With Me also has a “Counters” tab in which those pools can be set up and adjusted as a gameplay progresses.
Not a fan of point and click during the heat of battle? Once you name a roll, you can press Ctrl+/ to move the curse to a text prompt, type the roll’s name, hit return, and the same dice will roll again.
Lastly, but not least, this dice roller even has an x-card built-in. In fact, an excellent reason to use Roll With Me is as a gentle way to introduce the safety mechanic to your game.
X-cards are usually physical bits of paper that a player can touch to indicate they’re unhappy with a scene. Maybe it’s too scary for them? Perhaps the NPC reminds them too much of an abusive ex? It doesn’t matter. Touching the x-card means that the game shouldn’t progress down those lines any longer. Roll With Me’s x-card puts up a prompt to say someone is unhappy and a little chat to move on is now necessary.
