    The domain is expired when you try to log into it, though it still shows up as being 'taken' by the owner of the site. This gives the owner time to renew if they intend to. I'll look for an alternative. Hopefully the admins will realize it is down and renew it.

    In the mean time, check out this site: The Unseen Servant

    Here, you have to register (free) and also create a character to associate with the campaign. The campaign ID for The Dragon's Egg is 104. This should serve the same function as rolz.org. Let me know what you guys think.

    Not a bad site. You can type in text to describe what you are doing. The actual die roll goes in brackets, as in [1d6+2]. The site then knows the treat that as a roll instead of a text string. It gives you forum code that you can just cut and paste into your post to get the result and the type of link shown above.

    Charge: [1d20+5] = 20+5 = 25, damage: [2d6+3] = 11+3 = 14, Baldhart awesomeness: [1d20+8] = 12+8 = 20

    Only one catch… you can't have multiple plusses. So when I charge, it's [1d20+5], not [1d20+3+2] like before.

    Like this? Cool!

    Seems like a good option. I like that you can set your character up in there. Up tiil now I've been using a notebook in the most disorganized way possible.

    Testing: [1d20+1] = 20+1 = 21
    I feel like I'm wasting my good luck quota. ._.
    This roller seems good.

    Anyway, I took advantage of Google's cache to gather some info about the rolz.org. The comments section was active few days ago with the owner himself posting there (he looked a little deluded). It's also still possible to recover his e-mail through the About page.

    I guess if he already didn't notice the expired domain he will soon enough, decide if he should go ahead with the project or not.

    Yeah... test-rolling does make me wonder if I'm hurting my good luck, too.

    Output: CHA with Nissa bonus[1d20+3] = 16+3 = 19

    Output:
    to hit[1d20+5] = 16+5 = 21, damage[2d6+3] = 8+3 = 11, feat of STR[1d20+8] = 17+8 = 25

    Rollin rollin rollin,
    Though the DM's trollin,
    Keep them dices rollin, rawhide
    Rain and wind and weather,
    Armor made of leather,
    Glad for the party by my side
    All the things I'm missin,
    Sweet gear and gold that glistens,
    are waiting at the end of the fight

    Yes! Rolz is back. I swear I get better rolls on that site.

    Baldhart feat-of-strength test:

    1
    D20+1+3+4=>26
    <- not a 9

    See what I mean?

    Cool. Feel free to use either site. Just don't roll on both and take the better result :)

    set up macros for unseen servant, two rolls to test the macros, as I am not attacking anything yet.
    I like rolz for attack and damage in one click.

    Using the Unseen it's also possible to do multiple rolls in one click. E.G.:
    [1d20] = 16 #Melee attack; [1d6] = 1 #Damage

    You must use a semicolon, like rolz's syntax. I like the Unseen's macros, but, really... Rotten luck!

    Edit: Ok, my sytax was wrong and the rolz allowed it... Right roll:

    Anyone else having trouble with unseenservant.com? For some reason the dice roller isn't loading up for me the past couple of days.

    It's loading fine for me. Try opening it in incognito mode (Ctrl+Shift+N) to quickly test if your cache/cookies aren't messing up the site.

    Aw, man... is it just a bad connection at work? Or is rolz on and off today? I keep seeing rolz images, nothing, refresh and the image is back, then nothing again...

    Good! Baldhart is only strong on Rolz. The never-used 4th CON check vs. Mauve's fist was a 29, the climb up was 28-29-28 which is nearly impossible (1/1000 to roll a d20 and beat 18 three times in a row… but the climb down was more like a normal distribution of rolls), and just now I rolled a 26 for rowing.

    I wish rolz would fix it so the links would work.
    I hate not being able to post the image.

    Rolz-medium hot for me
