@ThomasMarkov i concur. Map to technically compatible version of explicitly unwanted solution is not a good answer.

@AncientSwordRage AFAIK AnyDice doesn't support string-valued outcomes. I think you're better off using a conventional language for this one. I may also try implementing easier sampling into my Icepool Python module.
Here's an example script (page and API still WIP, link may break at any time): tinyurl.com/5dhcvna7

@HighDiceRoller I'm ok, I think I found how to do it on random.org
(And I'm not very trusting of shortened links, and I could just implement it in JS now I'm not on mobile)

Morning all, The comments under rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/199700/… have descended into an extended discussion (to which I've been a part of) Not sure whether it needs cleaning up.
@StuperUser I don't see any comments
@AncientSwordRage, sorry, under the question that that answer's for
@StuperUser ahh that threw me off
flag it I guess?
Done. Thank you @AncientSwordRage

Q: Player wants to play a Stock broker / Trader. How do I Implement a lightweight trading system?

ACartonOfEggNoggPrelude: Starting an Eberron campaign. I've got a player who is new to D&D. He has asked me if he could play a Broker/Trader in my campaign. I've outlined to him that while D&D focuses on both combat and social, my game most likely won't accommodate nitty gritty stock trading. However, I really l...

Q: Can you be a Reborn Dhampir?

Zakron WestfieldCan you combine Reborn with Dhampir? Both are "lineages" that combine with another race and keep certain things such as climbing speed (which dhampirs get), so could you have both or is there a rule I missed? I'm talking RAW, assume the DM won't smite the combo as I'm building for a very powergam...

Q: How to manage exhaustion when using Gritty Realism?

linksassinIn my exploration-based game I am using a variant on the Gritty Realism optional rules. I have a good handle on most of the implications of this, however I have some concerns about my handling of the exhaustion condition. My variant rest system A simple summary of my rest system is below: If the...

@AncientSwordRage Mobile won't let me reply to specific messages from the transcript, so here we go: the CRPG uses Pathfinder 1e rules.
So prepared casting involves preparing specific spells for each spell slot, like 3.5e that Pathfinder is based on.
How many Scorching Rays do I want? Should I prepare a See Invisibility just in case? What if I don't use it?
@Yuuki oh good grief I forgot 3.5 did that 😩
I don't know if PF2e is different, but I'm glad D&D moved away from that.
I've also been dealing my old Pathfinder nemesis: type bonuses.
I supposed "bonus types" is a more accurate way of describing it.
@Yuuki ooof
@AncientSwordRage On the other hand, at least Pathfinder provides a lot of spell recovery features.
One thing I do now is just prepare the general combat spells I want and then when I run into a situation that requires something niche like See Invisibility, I can just prepare it in a spent slot and then use the wizard's arcane bond feature to recover the slot and be able to cast it
I hadn't ever thought about doing it that way in PnP.
@AncientSwordRage but yeah, I'm not enjoying having to micromanage which buffs give which type of bonus so I don't overlap and waste casts on the wrong spells.
8:59 PM
@Yuuki still feels like it should be simplified 🤔
It's better than in 3.5e where you were just out of luck.
As a wizard, you basically had to dedicate a good number of spell slots for niche utility.
But yeah, I'm glad 5e spellcasting is "prepare these spells, you can cast any of them for a total of X spells" instead of this.
Fair enough, there's no telling what's hiding behind a shortened URL.

Though now that you mention it, a base64-encoded Python script in a query URL doesn't seem super great either. Hmm.
Is sandboxing enough?
@HighDiceRoller did you see my bookmark above?
@HighDiceRoller I trust tio or ato
9:34 PM
@HighDiceRoller Conversely, a lengthened URL is the most transparent: aaa.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.co…;
Looks like that doesn't hyperlink properly, nor did I expect it to.
9:53 PM
@AncientSwordRage It seems TIO effectively offloads the risk to the server? Though I don't think it can install packages from PyPi.
10:14 PM
@HighDiceRoller it's more that I know (roughly) how/who runs it
