    MoreCore Attribute Modifier

    Using MoreCore for my system an attribute should modify the dice roll by its value.

    The attached image shows two ways that I can see this being done. I would like to have an assignable value to an attribute name, as in AttributeB, however the button and tooltip identify it as a "roll" rather than a "modifier".

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I wouldn't say you're doing something wrong, but what you're doing won't get you what you're looking for.

    Here's an example roll I have set up for Dungeon World. Create your roll to use the parameter of the attribute as a reference. Then when the attribute modifier changes, the roll is automatically updated.

    Im not following what you are saying.

    You could create something like this:

    Strength
    <whatever roll>
    enable parameters
    hide p3
    set p1 name as Score and p2 name as Modifier
    set values (eg Str Score 16 Modifier 2)

    Then in your Roll - eg Hack and Slash (Dungeon World)
    roll /pbta 2d6
    enable paramaters
    hide p2 p3
    param formula /pbta 2d6+(a)+(p1)
    drag Strength p2 to Ref Field A

    Then when you Roll on Hack and Slash it will do /pbta 2d6+2
    If there is something else that gives that player another +1 in Hack and Slash you would add that to Hack and Slash p1
    and then the roll would be /pbta 2d6+2+1
    And if you change your Strength all the Rolls that use Strength will get updated automatically

    Nice wndrngdru

    You do it a slightly different way to me but same end result.

    Yeah, I prefer a visual of which Attribute I'm pulling from instead of a just a db reference.

    they are exactly the same - you just dragged the whole attribute in and used its subvalues and I dragged the subvalue in.

    I realize they are functionally the same. If you look at the attached pic you'll see what I'm talking about.
    Reference (a) is the full Charisma attribute, Reference (b) was "accidentally" dragged from the Constitution Modifier.
    I wouldn't know there was an error until I rolled and didn't get the result I was expecting. I drag the full attribute for the sole reason of confirming I grabbed what I meant to. My mouse targeting isn't always the best.

    I just want the attribute to be a modifier, I dont want it associated with a roll (at the moment). AttributeB (in my attached image) does what I want, however the associated icon and tooltip, appears to be incorrect. Not a game breaker, just annoying.

    Click in AttibuteB 1 Dice String field and then click somewhere else.
    You can change the hover text on the p1 field via the p1 Name field.
