Rolls a 20-sided die.

int d20(
    int nNumDice = 1
);

Parameters

nNumDice
The number of dice to roll. (Default: 1, maximum 255)


Description

Returns the total from rolling nNumDice x d20 dice.

If nNumDice is less than 1, then 1 is used. If nNUmDice is over 255 it overflows, making 256 be "0" dice rolled, 257 be 1 die, and so on.


Remarks

An easier way to have dice rolls visible in code, which in D&D comes up a lot.

A d20 (twenty sided die) has a 5% probability of turning up numbers between 1 and 20.

A single roll is equivalent of running:

Random(20) + 1;
