AD&D Die Roller

When I got back into AD&D in 2005 I created the first version of a Die Roller using Microsoft Excel. My original intent was to automate generating lots of hit dice (HD).

This has evolved over the years into the present form, which generates:

  • lists of hit dice, addressing every possibility I could think of;
  • lists of rolled dice, allowing for impossible things such as d31.
  • single NPC character (or PC if anyone doesn’t liked rolling real dice);
  • lists of NPCs.

This workbook is free for com-commercial use and (unlike & Publishing Group publications) may be freely distributed. Note that the copyright statement must remain intact.

Note: This post was updated on 03/16/2018 so the download link points to the newest version of the die roller.

Note: This workbook uses VBA macros. It does not work if macros are disabled.

    I note there is a bit that says “AD&D recommends PCs have at least two 15’s.”
    Where does this come from?

      Look in the AD&D Players Handbook, first paragraph on page 9
