Is there a way to handle multiplication with the Modifier for die rolls? I tried dragging the x3 for criticals to the modifier but no dice.

I would love to be able to drag a modifier for my regular damage bonus, drag a multiplier for this hit being a critical, then add a 1d6 Flame modifier (which doesn't get multiplied) and then roll the dice.
Is this possible?

hmm... but criticals don't get multiplied, at least not in 3.0 or 3.5. You roll as many times and add them up. A ctritical x3 whose normal damage is 1d8 +2 +1d6 (fire damage) would be 3d8 +6 +1d6. Your roll 1d8 +2 three times and then add 1d6 that doesn't get multiplied.

Then again you may have a house rule or some other use for a multiplication modifier. I'm not saying it is useless, only that official rules as they are do not have any multiplier modifiers.

Oh, yea, that's right. My bad.

Is there a way to roll two types of dice at once? I'd like to roll 3d12 and 1d6 and add my modifier.

I don't see any way graphically, but the /die command should support:

/die 3d12 + 1d6

That would be nice.

Oh, and on that note, is there a reason /die commands don't use the modifier?

The die command has it's own modifier:

/die [n]d[n] +[n] [message]
/die [n]d[n] -[n] [message]

Syntax is as shown, one with each modifier. the message part is a text blurb you can add in with the roll
