Our group of 25 years that has met religiously every week, used to use DM Genie. The most beneficial feature was the ability to roll mass skill checks for PCs and then for NPCs. Now that we use Herolab and just starting to use Realms Works, this type of quick key feature would help streamline play more than any other feature. If it were in Herolab, that's would be best but integrated into Realms Works sounds like it might work better because Lone Wolf is creating a dice roller in the future.


Perception vs. Stealth (create a button that dice rolls PCs vs NPC or vice versa)
Sleight of Hand vs. Perception
Bluff vs. Sense Motive

These buttons could be static or customizable.

Additionally, have die roller roll any skill check individually and a saving throw too.

In the meantime, has anyone create a formulated spreadsheet that does this that they would like to share?

Hero lab has a dice roller.
Realm Works doesn't.

As kbs666 said, there is a dice roller in HeroLab. ("Tools" menu, "Dice Roller")

The initial request here, though, is for more than that. It is for game-specific functionality (Opposed Rolls, something from D&D 3.x and Pathfinder, but probably not from, say, Fate) . The problem with that is that Realm Works is intended to be game system agnostic So any dice roller in Realm Works would be pretty generic.. "roll a number of dice with x sides" would likely be 90% of the functionality. There may possibly be something like "roll 1 die of x sides and mark a result of Y or higher for attention" .. but it is unlikely to be "Critical Threat rolled!" or anything game-specific like that.

The place for that is in each Game System of HeroLab.
In the Pathfinder forum, there have been recent requests to add group operations to the Tactical Console (mostly about assigning damage to more than creature at a time). My suggestion was to add a group operations / Party management tool as a separate new tool, and to include "Roll Perception for all" or the like as an option. Fantasy Grounds, a Virtual TableTop application, has such functionality in its Pathfinder "Party Sheet" (which is available for some other game systems as well, but probably not all).

Personally I don't need a dice roller.

But you can do some really cool things with Inspiration Pad Pro 3.

How to use Inspiration Pad Pro 3 Random Tables Inside Realm Works

You could make a dice roller quite easily using this.

You could also embed an HTML file that does what you want. A while ago I made this simple dice roller that you could modify to roll two things at once, for example.

Wasn't there a dice roller in Realm Works in the early beta.
I remember seeing a dice roller icon on the Spotlight Series.

what happened to it?

It has not been implemented, and the icon was removed so people would not be asking why it doesn't work.

I am sure LWD plans to add it back in at some point, but even then, I expect it will be a fairly simple one.
