Using the Genesys Dice Roller

Joining a Room

There are two ways to join a room: Use a Direct Link or the Room ID and Passcode.

  • If you have a Direct Link, paste it into your browser.
  • If you know the Room ID and Passcode, you can enter them (and choose your Avatar) while in the Confluence.

Once inside a room, a player can change their Avatar by using the Switch Avatar button.

Making a Room

To make a new room, you must be in the Confluence, and then click on the button (bottom right) to make a new room. You will be asked to give the room a Name and choose to have the room Open or Closed.

  • Open Rooms can be joined by anyone who knows (or guesses) the Room ID.
  • Restricted Rooms require a Passcode to enter; when you create one, you will be prompted for a Passcode.
  • If you send the Direct Link to your players, it will have the Passcode embedded.
Getting Room Info

There are two places you can go to find Room Info.

  • Inside each Dice Room is an info link ( Room Info ) found on the top right of the page (next to the Profile Drop-down). Both Players and GMs can use this link, but GMs have access to more information.
  • (GMs only) Once you're on the Hub Page, look for a plus button ( ) for your room; clicking that reveals info that only GM's can see.
GM Controls

GMs have additional privileges in their rooms. (The user who creates a room is GM by default.) GMs can:

  • See more information about the room (including Direct Links, Passcode, etc.)
  • Ban/Unban players; GMs can also make a player the GM for that room.
  • Archive a room. Archived Rooms are hidden (but still accessible) on the Confluence; they also have Dice and Chat turned off.

Dice Mechanics

Dice Types

The Genesys Dice Roller uses seven different dice.

  • boost die Boost
  • ability die Ability
  • proficiency die Proficiency
  • setback die Setback
  • difficulty die Difficulty
  • challenge die Challenge
  • numerical dice Numerical
Basic Results
Successes and Failures
  • Success Success and Failure Failure pips cancel each other.
  • In order to succeed in a roll, the results must have (at least) one more Success pip than Failures.
  • A roll with no uncancelled success pips is a failure. (E.g. a roll with two successes and two failures.)
Advantage and Threat
  • Advantage Advantage and Threat Threat pips cancel each other.
  • It is possible to succeed on a roll, but with threat, just as it is possible to fail with advantage.
  • See the Core Rulebooks for how these results play out narratively.
Triumph and Despair
  • Triumph and Despair pips do not cancel each other.
  • The effects of a Triumph can be compared to a "critical hit" that you may have seen in another system. Likewise, a Despair can be thought of as a "critical failure".
  • In addition to these effects, each Triumph "includes" a Success, and each Despair "includes" a failure. These additional pips are accounted for by the dice roller.
  • It is possible to fail a roll with Triumph, or succeed with Despair.
  • See the Core Rulebooks for how these results play out narratively.
Numerical Dice
  • In the Genesys Role Playing Games, the Numerical dice tend to only be used in the determination of critical injuries to characters or vehicles.
  • By default, the Numerical Dice are set as d100.
  • You can change the number of sides by selecting the "100" and typing the desired value.
