Looks fine to me. The people who are bitching about this are really only doing so because they aren't getting the dice results they want. :roll:

Don't we all think that when we find a dice's lack of criticals disturbing? My brother whines a computer is cheating pretty much any time he gets his ass kicked too much in a game.

I still insist she went masochistic, by the way. :razz:
When sorrows wear on all our hearts
When time and tumult lovers part
We turn to our blue maiden's art
And strum the lute, to play our part!

Where there any serious objections to the roller's randomness? I thought it was mostly (relatively) good natured 'the dice are trying to kill me'-esque groaning.

I've never had any real complaints about it and, even if I had, that statistical analysis is enough for me to trust you.

I have had a bit of amusement watching the various results and finding patterns.

I'm firmly convinced the Lady gives better results after a good snogging.

I encourage everyone to give it a try. Best case scenario: Lucky dice for you! Worst case scenario: a well smooched Lady. And let's face it, everyone's in a better mood after some good kissing.

I've made a lot of changes to the backend (which you guys will never see and probably couldn't care less about); including a complete refactoring of the way it intercepts and interprets commands from IRC privmsgs, more robust logging, and the beginnings of a plugin architecture to make it easier for me to roll out new commands and to port the application to other interfaces. (The Lady for cellphones, anyone? ;) )

Now! Here's one thing you guys will probably like: Most of you already know that the Lady manages her own connections, independent of any IRC client or the like. Well, now she'll detect a disconnect from the server, reconnect automatically and auto-rejoin every channel she was on at the time she was disconnected.

What's next?

Oh, she's not on IRC? So does my dismissing her and re-summoning her every once in a while actually help, or is that just me expecting her to get clogged up with our text in her windows and being completely wrong?

It's on IRC, yeah. It just doesn't rely on an IRC client to provide its connection. (Unlike a bot written in, say, mIRC's scripting engine)

Hey kids, it's been a while! Life sort of got away from me there for a bit, but I'm back with a fresh patch for the dicebot:

# The Lady - release 2.0.0a
# CHANGELOG
# Modified: !roll_ctech [base, pool, tn, "hit" (optional)] - Completely refactored. It now supports the hit location and special effect rules from Vade Mecum, and should do a better job finding the best possible roll in a given pool
# New Command: !ctech_trauma [location (Legs, Arms, Torso, Head)](optional) - Supports the optional healing complication rules for Cthulhutech
# New Command: !316_planet [no options] - Generates a random planet for 3:16 - Carnage Amongst the Stars
# Modified: New command dispatch code, which at least doesn't make me cringe looking at it
# Modified: Migrated command reference online, at http://www.dead-letters.com/wiki/index. ... _Reference

# TODO
# !dh_crit [location] [damage type] [amount] - Queries the critical hit charts for Dark Heresy
# !unmet_injury [no options] - Rolls a random Severe Injury complication for Unhallowed Metropolis
# !gen_dh [no options] - Generate a random Dark Heresy character (stats, profession, and background only)
# !gen_dnd [oldschool (optional) (rolls 3d6 per stat and assigns them in order)] - Rolls a block of stats for an (A)D&D character. default is 4d6, drop lowest, with no assignment

# KNOWN ISSUES
# All the card-based functions are currently offline, will patch with tomorrow's update

Is there a way to fix the bot so it doesn't make me roll horrible because I don't provide it with enough lesbianism?

Between cookouts and helping Kailan's sister move, I didn't get as much time as I'd hoped to work on the dicebot this weekend. (or any time, really) But I did manage to steal a few minutes to bang out a new command:

[18:02] <@uhrwerk> !dh_psyker 2 3 15
[18:02] <The_Lady> uhrwerk invokes the Lady...
[18:02] <The_Lady> 5, 9
[18:02] <The_Lady> Rolled 14+3 vs 15 - SUCCESS!
[18:02] <The_Lady> You have drawn the warp's attention!
[18:02] <The_Lady> - Warp Whispers: The ghostly voices of Daemons fill the air within 4d10 metres of the Psyker. Everyone in the area (including the Psyker) must make a Hard (-20) Willpower Test or gain 1d10 Corruption Points.

Basically, it's a Psyker roller / warp effects generator for Dark Heresy. Reading through the book, it bothered me that rolls for Psychic powers 1. use a completely different system than the rest of the game, and 2. can require up to three dice rolls for even a starting character - and even more if multiple 9's appear. So I automated it. :mrgreen:

Syntax is !dh_psyker [Psy Rating] [Will Bonus] [Power Threshold]. Per the rules in the DH Core, it rolls a phenomenon for every die that comes up 9, with the potential of spillover into a warp manifestation.

Hey look! Real documentation: http://www.dead-letters.com/wiki/index. ... _Reference

(God, I hate writing docs.)

Oh yeah... and the !roll_sr4 command now displays results both with and without Edge expenditure.
