    Being unable to find an all-in-one VTT that handles games the way I run them, I'm looking at using multiple services. One upside of it is that we don't have to pay for any of these services.

    Discord for chat (text, video, voice)
    Miro for shared whiteboard/tabletop
    Watch2Gether for atmosphere/music

    Having not been able to find a die roller that's transparent enough, dice will be handled by everyone rolling their own dice. Crazy, right?

    oh, there are a handful of dice bots - but they have a tendency of not really getting out of the way of the game - at least the way I want it to run.

    It may be a bit system specific, but I like to have a bit of back-and-forth conversation, while dice are being drawn and replaced, until it's time to roll everything.

    Most online rollers use a standardized format of /r 2d6+1. Simple, intuitive. But it slows me down, gets in the way just enough that I'd really rather just roll physical dice.

    I'd like to see something where I can basically click a die in the UI to add it to my hand before casting them collectively. In multiple colors, with multiple die types.... Yeah, might be picky about it, but real physical dice do the job. Rolegate actually gets the closest to what I want, but they're not really set up for real-time play.

    I really do like the tactile element of rolling dice myself.
