Rollable Table

Sidebar, Cards & Rollable Tables

Main Article: l Collections-tab

A rollable table(or roll table), is a collection of items from which a single item will be randomly chosen. It can be used to create custom dice, critical success/failure tables, loot tables, or any other list of items that need to be "rolled". It is a feature that is found under the l Collections-tab in the Sidebar.

How Roll Tables Work


Creating a Rollable Table

Rollable tables are found under the right-hand Sidebar, under the l Collections-tab. To start a table, click "Add"; and the interface will show you have a "new-table" with "0" items.

New Rollable Table


New Rollable Table Item

Click on the name of the table, which again by default was "new-table". This will launch a pop-up screen, from which you can change the name of the table, toggle whether or not players can use this table, and add "items" to your table.

To add an item, click Add Item which will launch an additional pop-up screen. Similar to the last you can then name this item. By default, the name you enter will be shown in the chat box if this item is selected when the table is rolled.

If you are creating custom dice which have numeric values, enter a number into the name field. Otherwise you can enter any text you want.

If your rollable table has icons representing each item, or you are creating custom dice which have graphical sides, you can drag and drop an image into the Icon area. The icon you upload will be shown in the chat box if the item is selected during a roll.

You can additionally add "weight" to items in two methods; either enter the number of times you want the item to be a possible result OR enter a percentage value.

When using percentage values, do not place % after the number, and the final number of all items that are elements of the table must equal 100.


From the l Collections-tab of the Sidebar, you can simply click the "Roll" button to use your table, and the system will randomly select one of your "items" to show as the roll result. After rolling it once, it also shows up as one of your last ten rolls in the Dice Roller.

You can also roll a table directly in the q Text Chat, or in a macro, by using the roll command format 1t[table-name], instead of a dice. See Macro Guide#Roll Table for more details.

to roll your "crit-failure" table, one time:

/roll 1t[crit-failure]

You can change 1 to whatever number you would like to roll several time form the table at the same time. However, using roll tables in Inline Rolls will only roll results once, regardless of number.

You can also use a roll table in an inline roll, in chat or a macro, by wrapping it in double square brackets like this [[1t[table-name]]]. Currently, any number beyond 1 does not display for the inline roll, the results are show on mouseover though.

/em search their magic pouch, and pulls out a [[1t[magicpouchitems] ]].

Rollable Table Token

A Rollable Table Token, (aka. Multi-Sided Token) looks like any other Token, but with the added feature that you can select which Side of the Token is shown.

Sample Rollable Table with Images to use as a Rollable Table Token

This is very handy for changing the appearance of shape shifters, different equipped gear, or even changeable terrain.

If at least one of your Items has an icon assigned to it, you can create a Rollable Table Token based on the Rollable Table.

The Rollable Table Token inherits all of the images that have been set as icons on the Items, but will not change if later images are added to the Table. Rollable Table Tokens can be used to represent a character and can be assigned as the default token for a character.

To create a Rollable Table Token on the current page, click the Token button next to the Rollable Table you want to base it on.

Changing a Rollable Table Token to a Regular Token

By default, a Rollable Table Token will be marked as Is Drawing. This prevents it from snapping to the grid, and hides its bars, bubbles, etc. To make it behave like a normal Token, you'll need to right-click it, choose "Advanced", then click "Is Drawing".


Changing the displayed Token

When you want to change the Side displayed by your Rollable Table Token, simply right click it and choose "Multi-Sided" from the menu.

  • To choose a specific Side: Click "Choose Side" to be prompted to choose from the available icons using a slider.
  • To choose a random Side: Click "Random Side" and a side will be chosen for you from the available icons. Note: the weights from the original Rollable Table are NOT used for this selection.

Example of choosing a Token to display

Reminder: Changes to the original Rollable Table are NOT reflected in Rollable Table Token after it has been created. If you edit a Rollable Table and want those edits to be shown in your Rollable Table Tokens, you will need to generate a new token.

You can use /talktomyself to prevent the Text Chat output of Rollable Table Tokens. Doing so also prevents the context menu from closing after clicking "Random Side".

  • Rollable Table Macros -- Use macros and chat commands with rollable tables


TokenMod Can be used to change sides on a Multi-Sided Token. Examples:

//Sidenumber Multi-sided tokens
!token-mod --set currentside|2      //set selected token to show side 2
!token-mod --set currentside|+      //set selected token to show "next" side
!token-mod --set currentside|*      //set selected token to show random side
