Hi all,

I am wondering what the solid circles are. One appears every now and then amongst the dice results in the chat window.
Thanks.

When I've encountered them they are either:
1. Dice rolls that didn't need to happen 1d1 - so you will see this in loot tables. Maybe this is a function of #2 below...
2. Dice rolls for dice that don't have a graphical representation - 1d17

OK, that makes sense. Thanks.

There are no unhappened rolls or dice without representation. This is, if memory serves me well, separator when you push to distinguish which die was kept.

Maybe a picture would assist.

Circles are used for dice rolls which are of the form [d#] without having a die asset defined in the ruleset/framework which would define a display icon. It's the fallback icon.

In Alien Ruleset the circle icon is used as separator for the kept dice during push. Two examples attached.
