With the game out, there may be some who wish to start up PBF games. For the dice, you can use BGG's custom forum dice roller to represent the Omega Protocol Dice. The codes are as follows:


Black Die:
1custom6{iid:1789760;iid:1789760;iid:1789761;iid:1789761;iid:1789761;iid:1789762}

Red Die:
1custom6{iid:1789763;iid:1789764;iid:1789764;iid:1789764;iid:1789764;iid:1789765}



Use those codes in your roller for attacking. Simply copy the "1custom6{xxxxx}" value of the dice, paste it in the Roll section of the roller, and give it a comment. The "1" is the number of dice, the rest are the custom images. If you are rolling more than one type of dice, separate with a space, a plus, and a space (i.e. " + ").

For example, if I attacked with 3 Black and 2 Red dice, it would look like this:

3 Black and 2 Red: 3custom6{iid:1789760;iid:1789760;iid:1789761;iid:1789761;iid:1789761;iid:1789762} + 2custom6{iid:1789763;iid:1789764;iid:1789764;iid:1789764;iid:1789764;iid:1789765} -> ( iid:1789761 iid:1789761 iid:1789760) + ( iid:1789764 iid:1789763) -> (
)(
) [+]


The code I put into the Roller was:

3custom6{iid:1789760;iid:1789760;iid:1789761;iid:1789761;iid:1789761;iid:1789762} + 2custom6{iid:1789763;iid:1789764;iid:1789764;iid:1789764;iid:1789764;iid:1789765}

Note I also added the Comment, "3 Black and 2 Red:". If you don't add a comment, then it puts the dice code as the comment, and it looks really ugly (so always add a comment).

Happy gaming.

This is really useful thanks for sharing! I'm assuming that code can be modified for any game?

Yes, BGG's dice roller can be used in any forum post. All it is is a random pick from a list of images. In our case, the images are the faces of the dice. All PBFs with custom dice do it this way (like Doom: The Boardgame, Descent: Journeys in the Dark, Gears of War: The Board Game, etc).
