Which brings me to the question:
What if you have battle focus and/or poison on a 7+?
I assume:
* Roll for 7+
* 7+ triggers both poison and battle focus


Yes.

Though rare, it may actually break my model.

Battle Focus is the most peculiar one, especially in combination with Poison. I was about to implement Battle Focus as "just another attack", when I realised my implementation could lead to outcomes with more than 100% chance to occur. The reason was an imperfect combination with poison.
Although the 2 rules don't have a lot of influence on each other on the table, statistically they are joined as a single outcome, forcing the additional hit from battle focus to be calculated with a poison in conjunction to remain statistically correct.

It's proving an interesting challenge :D
It will get done, battle focus included.

Done. I added:
* Re-roll successful hits
* Battle Focus
The combination of Poison and BattleFocus leads to 1 Poison hit and 1 extra hit from battle focus

I added place-holders for re-rolls of successful wounds and armour saves, but they have yet to be implemented.

Excellent changes so far, esp. battle focus 8)

I noticed one more simplification that could be done, while re-rolling 1s exists in the game in several instances, re-rolling 1s&2s does not - so removing this option would make sense, and would increase ease of use.

Hi,

I love the tool and use it a lot for my video battle reports but unfortunately the outcome images are not displayed on the tool...

When I try to open the result in a new tab I receive the following message: "the page is not available for the moment".

I have tried with multiple computers, smartphones and navigators. No difference it doesn't work everywhere. Is it just me or anybody having the same issues?

I am waiting for it to work again in order to add some stats to my next video battle report so i hope a solution will be found soon.

Salut, Math-CD, et bienvenue dans ce qu'il reste de Druchii.net.

May I suggest to send a PM to Daeron, the author of the calculator - and administrator of the site?

No, this calculator was made by Daeron very skillfully, I am not aware of anything similar elsewhere.

Greetings Math. Sorry for taking time to answer. I rehosted the website here: https://diceengine.com/
It has a newer version of the code, but all the same calculators are available.


PS: if you wish to use the graphs in videos etc, you are most welcome. Let me know if there is something I can do to make them easier to use or easier to integrate.
