In 2005, MORPC decided the make some changes to their Horizons Newsletter. I was part of the team that came up with the idea of moving to a magazine format, so that longer stories could be told.

I came up with the initial layout, designed the masthead, laid out the articles, and managed the text.

Burning Wheel Dice Roller

[kml_flashembed movie=” ” height=”447″ width=”250″ fversion=”9″ useexpressinstall=”true” /]This is a dice roller I built, in Flash, for the Burning Wheel game I was running in 2006. It was nice to have a dice roller on my laptop so that I could make secret rolls for or against the PCs without the players knowing.

The dice roller is pretty simple. You enter in the number of dice to be rolled at the top, and then select the type of dice (Black, Grey or White) from the pull down. Clicking the Roll button at the button “rolls” the dice. Successful rolls are shown in brackets, like this:Sucess Dice , and failures are shown like this:Failure Dice. The dice roller also totals the number of successful and failure dice at the bottom.

The zip file includes both the standalone .exe file, and the .swf file (for embedding in blogs, webpages, and wikis).
