It's mainly used in Play-By-Forum games (in which people play a game in special forums here on BGG). If you need a die rolled on your turn, BGG can do that in a verifiable way.

Some people also use it in contests, or just for the heck of it.

The Babylon Project was our last best hope for peace. It failed. In the year of the Shadow War, it became something greater, our last best hope for victory.

Does it just show the sum or does it show each individual "die" as well? I play Silent Death which uses 2 dice determined by weapon class such as 2D6, 2D8 or 2D10, and a single die based on the gunnery skill. The damage codes on most of these weapons are Low, Medium or High, which is based on the 3 dice rolled for the hit attempt. This means that while the sum determines a hit or miss, the individual numbers need to be known.
