Here is one that works for skype. And here is one that emails its results to all players.

It is possible to create an online die-roller such that, with no central server, it is cryptographically infeasible for anyone to cheat, even if all players except for one collude. I have not looked hard, but I'm sure someone must have implemented this algorithm before. Here is one such project (though it is only an API, it doesn't have a GUI).

comment How can I roll a character's age using only d6?
"The reverse bell curve is what you want, but I'm not sure how to produce it with d6s." - Take a bell curve (ex. sum n d6 and subtract n), add max/2, mod max. This essentially chops the bell-curve in half, and moves the left-half to the right of the other half.
