I recently played a game on the board-game simulator Vassal that simulated the game's custom d6s. I'm wondering if anybody knows of a similar program (or even a module for vassal) that lets a group share customized die rolls with each other in real time over the internet.

What I would prefer is a format where each player has their own window and their dice appear within it when they roll.

I tried but Firefox warns me that the site is not secure...

Firefox is just warning that the security certificate isn't from a recognized SSL certificate provider. Given you're using this for rolling dice, I wouldn't worry about it. You wouldn't want to hand over your credit card, but it is no less secure than any other site you might use. – Rain Jul 2 '11 at 3:39
It would be helpful to know what kind of "custom d6s" you mean. Are these dice with different numbering (e.g. a d6 with 1,1,1,4,6,6), or dice with pictographs (e.g. ⚔,⚔,⚔,⚡,⚡,☠)? Or…? – SevenSidedDie Jul 2 '11 at 19:54
in that case it was the Arkham dice with a special symbol for the 6. – Claytonian Jul 3 '11 at 11:51

The module for Dungeons and Dragons miniatures might suffice.

Hi @World Engineer, welcome to RPG.SE! Could you expand your answer to include a little more about the site your recommending? A feature list or screenshot would be excellent. – C. Ross Jul 2 '11 at 11:52
