Notation for HAGIS Dice Rolling:

 

Full Notation

xdy(a)

Roll a number of dice in which x = the number of dice, d is merely an identifier that dice are involved, y = number of sides on each die, and a = the number of the die in order from highest to lowest.

e.g., a standard mid20 roll would be noted 3d20(2). A hi20 roll would be indicated as 3d20(1). A tri20 roll would be noted as 3d20(a); the “a” is left to indicate that the middle value is used unless a meta-game influence would indicate a different value be used.

 

 

Abbreviated Notation(s)

tri20

Roll three d20’s and take the middle die value (see also mid20). In instances in which a PASSION (a metagame influence) has been invoked or otherwise triggered, the high or low value (see also hi20 and lo20) is used as appropriate for the circumstances related to the meta-game influence activation. A tri20 roll can be represented as 3d20(a); the “a” is left to indicate that which value is used is subject to meta-game circumstances (the middle value is used as the default unless a meta-game influence would indicate a different value be used).

e.g., a standard tri20 roll might generate a 12, a 3, and a 15 which using the default middle value (i.e., mid20) yields a value of 12.

 

mid20

A tri20 roll taking the middle value of the three dice. This is the default for a tri20 roll.

hi20

A tri20 roll taking the high value of the three dice. This is not the default for a tri20 roll and is only used when indicated by a meta-game influence

lo20

A tri20 roll taking the low value of the three dice. This is not the default for a tri20 roll and is only used when indicated by a meta-game influence

Aega Mythea, an ancient recipe for High Adventure is made with HAGIS!
