    As the Merlin, I have enabled some Forum Wizardry. The first two have been mentioned in an email, the third is brand new.

    1. The Forum now has a Chat Box, After you log in to the forum you can select "log in" to login to the chat.

    2. You each have the option to generate a Character sheet from within your Forum profile. So far I have added fields for Name, High Concept, Trouble, an aspect list, and refresh.
       Let me know if you want other fields.

    3. We can now roll Fate dice in one of two ways here at the Safehouse.
    a. under options on the left lower side of a forum reply you will see, "Roll the fate dice" and fields to choose "dFATE" and the number of dice to roll, (just enter "4")
    b. in a reply you can use the [roll] bbcode command: [ roll="dFATE" ]4[ /roll ] (No spaces)
    It will look like this: The Merlin carried out 4 launched of one dFATE (Image not informed.) :
    , , ,

    If you use the options it will put your roll in a 2nd post. For some reason You cannot use the die fields when creating a thread. It must be a reply.
    If you use the code it will re-roll if you edit your post.

    That's All I have so far. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

    [quote="The Merlin"]The member 'The Merlin' has done the following action : Roll the FATE Dice

    The trick here is you have to remove the spaces around the brackets. I couldn't show you guys the code because it would roll the dice.

    [_roll="dFATE"]4[_/roll]

    If you remove the two underscores it will work.

    For those of you that care I had to construct my own die and assign each side an image. There is also an image slot for the die itself but I found it distracting so I removed it. That is the reason for the "image not informed text"

    As I explore the features I may be able to further customize it.

    Ah, I also like the new forum look. Although I like the classic, this is even better.
