So it's about three hours old and we nearly went through, and more than likely went through, all the stupid, funny, and definitely improbable style Results for dice rolls without numbers.

I suggest we come up with suggestions for new ones to be added.

So, suggestions?

Watermelon! The lost sock from the back of the dryer! Eben's wonderful underpants! All manner of Cockney rhyming slang!

It'd work fine if some of the results are randomized from a list of adjectives followed by nouns. Minty Posterior. Special Sauce. Big Thingamajig.

Ooh, this is fun.

Buddleia rolled a 6 on a 6-sided die.
Buddleia rolled a 3 on a 4-sided die.
Buddleia rolled 2 6-sided dice, and the result was 10.
Buddleia rolled a 1 on a 0-sided die.
Two suggestions (or maybe not, depending on how Improbable you want these to be):
1. All dice must have at least 2 sides.
2. When you roll more than one die, it would be nice to see the individual scores and not just the total.

Buddleia rolled a 14 on a 99-sided die.
Buddleia rolled a 513 on a 999-sided die.
Buddleia rolled a 2497 on a 9999-sided die.
Buddleia rolled a 40563 on a 99999-sided die.
Buddleia rolled a 36364 on a 999999-sided die.
Buddleia rolled a 3840584 on a 9999999-sided die.
Buddleia rolled a 89848677 on a 99999999-sided die.
Buddleia rolled 999 999-sided dice, and the result was 504482.
Um. Might an upper limit to the number of sides and number of rolls be a good idea? In case difficult people like me break the game and/or the characters' brains by carrying a million dice each of which have a million sides?

Further request: any chance of expanding this to coins (/flip 1) and cards (/draw 52, /draw hearts, /draw pips, /draw trains)?

Bonus:
[00m17s]X Buddleia rolled a nobody cares on a seven-sided die.
[00m09s]X Buddleia rolled a cake on a umpteen-sided die.
[00m00s]X Buddleia rolled a banana on a trains-sided die.
Whoever programmed this, I love you. Cannot stop laughing!

Showing every dice roll wouldn't work very well because, like you said, people might be carrying around a million million-sided dice. Rolling just three dozen dice would probably require more characters than a single post could hold. And Omega has already tested the upper limits.

I'd like it if the command could recognize typed out numbers.

I've tried to test the upper limits, but they were too high. Waaaay too high. High enough for me to timeout thrice or more.
