Base roll stays the same
Qty x Die Type x Multiplier
1 x d20 x 1
+/- drop down (defaults to +)
(I assume - has a value of -1 and the + has a value of 1)
Modifier drop down ( 0 - 10 ) defaults to 0
Mod 10 button
Mod 20 button
Example to modify the above 1d20x1 roll with
You would simple use the 0-10 drop down selecting 8 as the +/- defaults to + and you do not need the mod 10 or mod 20.
You would select 8 from the drop down and tap mod 10. The string default to + already and you do not need the mod 20.
I have not put a lot of thought into the max mod present in an epic level 4e game so consider first.
The reason I recommend the above is it creates a smaller drop down with common 10 bumps. This is preferred on mobile devices with less screen real estate.
I suppose you could keep the +/- drop down and just give a blank for the modifier value to be typed which may be even cleaner than the above.
[ Roll: <Quantity>:<Die Type>:<Multiplier>:<PlusNeg>:<Modifier>]
Which is very similar to what you listed. I have no web programming knowledge only excel, access and basic visual basic so my thoughts are not based on exact web programming or html.
I use you web site on a palm pre, ipad, netbook or desk pc depending where I am.
I still envision the roll and mod string being listed on one line at the top of the posting blank.
I hope this helps or springboards into a better idea.
