My First Alexa Skill is Live!!!

If you have an Alexa-enabled device, you can now run my first official Alexa skill.  It passed certification and is now Live!!!alexa

Tell Alexa to Launch Simon’s Simple Dice Roller and then tell her to Roll a d 20, or Roll 2 d 6.  Or Roll a d percent.  She’ll roll the dice you ask for and give you a total.

diceIt’s not much, but it paves the way for Simon’s Smarter Dice Roller which will let you add modifiers and roll advantage and more.  Stay tuned for more info on that skill.  Wanna be a beta tester?  Just let me know in the comments.

I’ve also submitted a D & D Facts skill, but that’s still pending approval.  I’ll let you know when it’s live too.  Thanks!


Initiative Tracker

Posted here for your use is my character log and initiative tracker.


Initiative Tracker


Before each session, I will read through the upcoming adventure and write in the stats for the bad guys at the rolled initiative order.  I pre-roll this because it will just add wasted time to the encounter if I say, “You face 6 goblins, 2 hobgoblins and an orc with a warg, hang on while I sort them out.”

For the initiative, don’t forget to add their modifier(s) to the roll.

When filling in the right side of the initiative sheet, put in the following stats:

  • AC – Armor Class
  • Ht – Net to hit modifier for each attack
  • Dmg – Net damage roll, or for more speed, just use the average damage amount for the enemy
  • Spcl – Memory joggers for the special skills a monster might have
