Installation and Configuration

Copy the script's code, stored at Roll20's API GitHub Repository. Paste the code into a new script in your campaign's API Script Editor. Save the new script and it will be available inside your campaign.

Syntax

The HERO ROLLER engine (a.k.a., HeRoll, HeRoller) is triggered by the api call to "heroll", and accepts a number of optional arguments after:

   !heroll [--{argAlias | argAlias:val}...]

The available arguments can be referenced by aliases, and they accept a given range of possible inputs. This information is contained in the HEROLL ARGUMENTS table.

supply an OCV to override any checking of a character sheet (including when you don't have a character sheet). This flattens all OCV mods to 0 including any originating from a called-shot. Including the location argument will still invoke BODY and STUN multipliers.

Understanding the Table

Use the following guidelines for interpreting the table, above.

  • [bracketed text] presents a set of options you can choose from. For example, [number] requires you to enter a valid number.
  • plain text represents a static option that could be invoked typing it exactly as it appears. For instance, tall could be used exactly as the value portion of the argument pair --of:tall.
  • (parenthetical text) represents information for you, but which you cannot change. For instance, (none) could inform you that there is no default for a given argument.
  • FLAG VALUE represents the value invoked if an alias of that argument is used as a flag, i.e., without the : or a value portion. For instance, --of:sc is functionally the same as --sc, producing a sidecar-formatted output. (Note: sc is not only an alias of the outputformat argument, it is also a valid value for the argument (sc). We are NOT using the value in place of the argument to invoke the flag; we are instead using another alias of the argument, in this case one that reads perhaps more intuitively ("sidecar"). Consider the full equality: --of:sc is the same as --sc:sc is the same as --sc.

Script Use

For a more thorough discussion of the ways to use the HeRoll engine, see the README file stored with the script on the API GitHub Repository (you will need markdown reader; there are extensions that will let let you open these in Chrome, for instance). Here are some example implementations from the readme:

The following implements a 4d6 flash named Cosmic Flare, with notes describing mechanics, and designates a blue color:

   !heroll --d:4d6 --t:f --a:14 --pn:Cosmic Flare --n:flash to common sight, AoE (16m) Non-Selective --c:4b688b

Here is a similar implementation except using the *check* value to not output the results bar. This one also references an attribute called "color1" where the color for the panel is stored (for easy color coding or changing at a later date):

   !heroll --d:check --pn:Way of the Mountain --n:does 9m of shove --t:ha --col:@{Heretic|Color1}

The next utilizes the xd (extradice) argument to read the velocity from the character's sheet and feed that as a modifier to a martial throw. It sends the output as the sidecar format:

   !heroll --d:6.5d6 --t:ha --pn:Way of the Wind --n:throw, target falls --sc --xd:[[@{Heretic|velocity}/10]] --col:@{Heretic|color1}

Another example using the check value to validate that the character created a wall of given size:

   !heroll  --p:pts --pn:Wall of Light --d:check --of:tall --pl:Wall of Light --n:8 PD, 8 ED, 6m long, 4m tall, .5m thick, dismiss, choose either not anchored or mobile --c:@{Prism|pwrcol}

The next example demonstrates a power the player can choose to "push" by a given amount. The player is asked for input, and the result is fed into the xd argument:

   !heroll  --p:b --pn:Light Stix --d:10d6 --of:TALL --c:@{Duo|pwrcol} --xd:[[?{Supercharge Points|30}/10]] --n:4m radius select attack, no range, IIF vs PD
