Rolls a 8-sided die.
- The number of dice to roll. (Default: 1, maximum 255)
Returns the total from rolling nNumDice x d8 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.
An easier way to have dice rolls visible in code, which in D&D comes up a lot.
A d8 (eight sided die) has a 12.5% probability of turning up numbers between 1 and 8.
A single roll is equivalent of running:
Random(8) + 1;
