My research for Earthdawn dice software was.......I would call it "incomplete". But Arma left a comment about another diceroller and Elidis contacted me to provide some other dicerollers, that are especially made for use in Earthdawn.

1. The one that Arma mentioned in his post was the second step diceroller (mirror). The second step and also the second step diceroller were made by Lars Gottlieb and his mates. Thanks go to Denmark.








2. This diceroller is simply called "Earthdawn Step Roller" (mirror) and that's what it does.





















3. Last but not least, if you always forget which dice you have to use at step 200, then just have a look at the step calculator (mirror). Then you realise that you will roll with 9D20 1D12 9D10 8D8. JIHA bring on Verji!!!!!!







I have to admit that I don't know the programmers of the "Step Dice Calculator" neither of the "Earthdawn Step Roller", if the producers of those programs visit this site, please contact me.

If you want to download all three dice programs at once, click HERE (mirror)

Thanks go to arma and Elidis (once again).


UPDATE

Another diceroller especially designed for earthdawn, was sent to me a few days ago. This java based diceroller gives you the possibility to choose the race and add karma dices to your step you roll. Just check is out, its one of the best dicerollers for earthdawn so far. This java diceroller was programmed by Kjetil Wiekhorst Jørgensen from Norway in 1996, thanks to him.

Hi, the step dice calculator was written by me (about 15 years ago now).

I originally posted it on my Shadowwalker's Lair geocities site (http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/1373 long since gone) along with all sorts of other nonsense.

It wasn't perfect (there are some wrong calculations at certain lower step dice because the progression wasn't entirely easy to figure out (programmer excuses)).

I seem to recall putting in a hidden shortcut for the about info, something like CTRL+ALT+A or similar

Anyway, I'm glad to see people are still using it somewhere.
