    Doug Davison and his luck with rolls.

    Hey everyone.

    I always appreciate good rolls and Doug is a clutch roller in our Pathfinder 2 Extinction Curse campaign.

    Doug was rolling 3d6 damage and rolled an 18 with 3 x 6's. That is a very low probability roll in the first place.

    So as a kid playing D&D in the 1980's most of the time when my friends and I would go to a pickup game where the game was AD&D 2e every time there was a fighter at the table they would always have a 18 / 100 strength. I would always say to myself, yeah right.

    So as I have been DM'ing, anytime would roll an 18, I would always have fun and say go ahead and roll a D100 percentile and lets just pretend and say your rolling for a percentile Strength and see what happens. Doug then throws a percentile and rolls a 100. Unbelievable. LOL

    In all of my years DM'ing this is the first time I have seen this and here is the screenshot to prove it.

    I have the opposite problem. I have horrible rolls, and my players know it and often want me to roll things for them as they know regardless of a high roll or low roll I'll do the opposite of what I need (sigh).

    Not Wil Wheaton rolls - but bad enough

    [and that is invalid attachment FYI]

    Isn't there some special lines of code inside FG that reads if DD is rolling then roll max?
    If you need to contact customer support or if there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea here http://fgapp.idea.informer.com/

    The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

    It used to make my cry every time I rolled an 18 for Strength. I would never roll over 50 on the d100 and I would always feel like i just wasted this brilliant 18 roll.
