rollWithLower() Function

Generates random numbers to emulate dice rolls. Returns the total of a dice roll where each die that rolled lower than the minimum parameter is counted as that value instead.

Usage

rollWithLower(times, sides, minimum)

Parameters

  • times - The number of times to roll the dice.
  • sides - The number of sides the dice possess.
  • minimum - The minimum value that each individual die will contribute to the total.

Examples

Roll five twenty-sided dice. Any rolls below 7 are treated as 7.
[t: rollWithLower(5, 20, 7)]
Returns a number that is between 35 and 100 (and no longer down to 5 as with a regular 5d20 roll).
