COUNT Option

Introduced: Version 1.3.b41

The COUNT option executes a statement for a specified number of times, storing the number of the current iteration in a variable called roll.count.

Usage

[COUNT(num): body]
[COUNT(num, separator): body]

The roll.count variable will take on values from 0 to (number of loops - 1). The optional separator (default ",") is printed between each iteration. Some examples of other useful separators: nothing "", space " " and break "<br>".

Example

[h:numHits=3]
[COUNT(numHits): Damage = Damage + 1d12]

This will iterate the Damage = Damage + 1d12 operation 3 times, separating the result of each iteration with the default separator (a comma). An optional second argument to COUNT() allows the setting of a different separator.
