If/when you do decide to add Fancy Dice, I'd be happy to share the configuration I use for the FFG dice. It has been working really well for us so far and has really helped improve the pacing of ongoing gameplay.

The only downside is there isn't anyway to calculate the net result of an EoTE roll but that's not a major issue at all.

Thanks. We don't have an EotE game going now, but we've had a few in the past. I've been using http://game2.ca/eote/ which works well and sums the totals, but it's not built into the forums.

That's the tool we were using prior to getting Fancy Dice installed and its still the backup should the forum extension fail for any reason.

I love this idea, especially with the possiblity of multiple accounts or easy account linking and switching.

+1. This would be a great improvement to phpbb overall. A coder who took this project on would receive much popularity and favour.

Each user on my forum has multiple characters, and each character has it;s own account with abilities, weapons and posts. I would just like to have it so there's a drop down menu users can use to switch between linked accounts, just like the old mod used to do.

Yes. This is what I wanted too. I'll speak with my fellow site admins, if there's no other higher priority enhancements/bug fixes, then we might start working on that.

Throwing in my support for this, I also run an RP forum where each user has separate accounts for their characters, so something to ease the process of switching between characters would be wonderful.

I've always used the Account Switcher mod with the Post-as-Poster mod on all of my games.
But if you manage to come up with an extension that allows for a user to select which linked account to post under from the posting page or even switch who the poster is after posting, that would be like 2 birds and one stone.

Hello there.

As I need it too, I've worked on a little project to create a whole new mod for account linking working with 3.1.x. (I used Acounts Links 0.7.9 on 3.0.x)

My current goals :
- Account linking from Admin, Moderator or User (based upon admin choice of how to link)
- Easy account switching : with list of links (<li><a>) or selectbox (<select><option>).
- Compatible with datas from Accounts Links 0.7.9 for 3.0.x, might be easy to switch to another
- EN and FR translation.
- Accents and quote improved compatibility.

No "post as XXX" yet but my goal is to provide a solution that people can update to add this functionnality after if required.

It's really early work, nothing is really done yet, however if some of you wanna join or follow, you can watch things from here :

Please note that's my first mod for PHPBB ever so things might not be as good as standard or clean as you hope. Feel free to provide insights but please consider that I will fulfill my current goal list before doing anything additionnal.

It'll be great for my forum where people have 5+ accounts.

This would also be handy for people like me that have a gaming clan AND a community board on a single site. This would have to be permissions based or have the ability to be permissions based with the ability to be able to have a specific number of sub accounts. Hope this makes sense.
