Dice roller for RPGs with dropping & log features.
Version:Polymatic is a nice, freeware dice-roller for role-playing games. The main reason I programmed this was a lack of satisfaction from existing dice-rollers.
Operating System: Mac OS X
One can enter the quantity of dice, number of sides, and put in an optional bonus, and this program will roll the dice; there's also a 'memory' feature where one can save/restore values for the number of dice, sides, bonus, and result.
Polymatic features dropping functions, to drop either the lowest or the highest die, or even both, and a log text field, to show a detailed breakdown of each roll.
There are two windows in Polymatic, the main window and the log. The main window houses the basic configuration options, as well as a basic results table and a tab view with all sorts of juicy options that you can configure. Want to add a per-die bonus of 7 and a per-pool multiplier of 2? You got it. Want to drop the three lowest dice and the one highest die? No problem. Want to reroll any dice or pools that are under and/or over specified values? Polymatic can do that, too. The log shows a complete breakdown of the groups, pools, and dice, each in a separate table. Every time that you roll the dice, another row will be added to the groups table; when activated, that item will show a breakdown of its pools in the Pool table (no joke intended); and clicking on a pool will show a breakdown of its dice in the Die table. This feature takes a small amount of getting used to, but is designed to display as complete a breakdown as one can possible be.
