Need Help creating a favorite roll for D20 stats

Post by Dallocourt » Thu Jan 15, 2015 2:09 am

My tabletop group, when running any game in a D20 system, most frequently uses a rule for generating stats where we roll the normal "4d6 keep highest 3" method, but with one difference, we reroll 1s and 2s.

I have been trying for a few hours, in vain, to write a custom roll to accomplish this. I can get it to where it rerolls certain numbers. But when making changes, can only get it to either keep the entire sum, or throw the entire roll out, resulting in a 0 for the roll.

Can anyone figure this out for me please?

Are you rerolling the 1's and 2's just once, or every time they show up?

If it is the latter, then you are really just rolling a d4+2 (and so 4d4H3+6 will give you the same results).

If it is the former, you can use the REO (re-roll once) roll macro on the dice. By saying "d6REO2" it will re-roll if you get a one or two, so 4d6REO2H3 will do the trick ("four six sided dice where you reroll if it is two or less and then keep the three highest")
