That much sounds clear to me, but when do you know you have won or lost? The pictures should be very explanatory, but I still fail to really see what to put where. The idea sounds lovely to me, really does, and I thank you greatly for your explanation because that sure cleared a lot of things out. Should it be like, certain death? Or just injuries?
As the GM of the game I will tell you exactly what your rolling for and when to roll. I will explain whenever a roll is needed, what the results will indicate (win/lose/draw etc..)
The dicebot is nothing more then a random number generator. You punch in the number and click "roll dice." then it gives you a result.Battle Example
xRebecca's makes a post stating that she's going to enter a building to look for something. She think that there is a "key" to the puzzle in the room. She faces off against a giant slug like creature called a Hutt (from Star Wars).
((You knew this before hand because I told you that when you head to this location you will find a Hutta gangster inside))
So xRebecca asks me in OOC what dice roll she needs to beat the Hutta Gangster and his armed side kicks.
GM (me) responds with a post in OOC that says to beat the room with 2 gangsters and 1 Hutta in it, you will need to roll a 10 or higher. <Then I will state the results of a victory or loss. And the prize rewarded if won.>
xRebecca uses the dicebot to roll the dice (20 sided which is equal to a random number from 1-20). xRebecca rolls a 12.
xRebecca makes a post in the IC thread with the copy/pasted Diceroll results showing her 12. Since a 12 is a victory but only a couple points over the margin of victory. xRebecca writes up a post detailing her hard fought battle with the gangsters in the room and her eventual victory then she takes the "key" and leaves the room triumphantly returning to her teammates.Example (So, What if I lose?!)
In this example, xRebecca rolled a very low 4. She was defeated in battle and crushed.
So xRebecca writes a post with the results copy/pasted and says she tried to fight them but she was outgunned, they shot her up good and she was easily defeated on this attempt (or something like that.)
Now it's most likely that in this world if you lose you'll be sent to a "starting/hub" point. You get teleported when you are defeated back to the hub (like as if you lost in a video game). Most likely you will lose all your items/weapons/VCoins(the money).** Most planets won't have a death option, even if they do.. I'll probably come up with something that your teammates can do to rescue your avatar. I don't believe in actually killing off characters in a game unless the player wants to have their character die.
