Forbidden Lands Online Roller Now Live!

Sat 12 Jan 2019, 22:19

The initial release of the online roller for Forbidden Lands is now live!

You can use it on any modern browser here: https://jkottler.github.io/fbl-roller/

The current interface is not exactly what I was hoping for, but with the game released and the dice already out of stock, I thought the community would be better served by a functional roller now than by a prettier one that came out later.

Feedback, pull requests, etc, are all welcome.

I love it, but I would prefer a smaller interface that fits in the screen without scrolling.

A couple of small fixes have been pushed - most notably, the color of base dice now more closely resembles the color of the real dice in the set (while still making a compromise to be seen on a white background).

@Blackonion - you are completely correct. Like I said, the interface isn't what I was hoping for but I will keep working on it (I know roughly how to fix it) and in the meantime, at least it's functional.

Any thoughts on making an android/iOS app for this?

@Slam Hammerfist - Not really, it's already a Progressive Web App so you should be able to use it offline once you've used it and if your phone supports it, you should even be able to save a shortcut and run it essentially as if it were an app.

What I plan on doing is fixing the UI as soon as I have a free weekend!

Ok, excellent. That was definitely my worry, not being able to use it if the site was down or whatever. Thanks for making this!

Very nice!

A feature for anyone playing dwarfs would be a little counter saying how many times you've pushed the roll.
