# Rolldown
> Rolling dice in markdown!
> Can it be done??
watch the video:
<https://tube.tchncs.de/w/wvdZ36y4C4FFKNDf2MSBrn>
this repo contains:
```
.
├── README.md
├── db.rec
├── justfile
├── macros.m4
└── story.md
```
1. README.md -- this file
2. db.rec -- a 'recfile' containing one record per possible outcome of rolling 2d6 based on a loose interpretation of the Powered By The Apocalypse system
3. justfile -- just a collection of scripts
4. macros.m4 -- an m4 macros file. no longer used, but preserved for historical value
5. story.md -- a daring story about love, danger, and potatoes
other goodies:
- tmux: `tmux send-keys` allows you to send arbitrary key strokes to other tmux panes. In the video, I used it to tell lynx to refresh itself each time the html file is recompiled.
- snippets: here's the snippet i ended up using to roll the dice:
snippet res "roll 2d6!"
`recsel -P result -m 1 db.rec`

# my story #
## in the beginning ##
i was walking down the street and things were bad
## and then ##
I saw a bear! and i tried to run away, and I did bad. so i did not evade the bear, in fact i tripped and fell!
## and so
and so i tried to appeal to reason, and i the bear paused and i got to get away, but i sprained my ankle! and had to hide behind a dumpster for 3 hours until it went away
## eventually
I finally got to the library and was able to return my books, but the books were so overdue, that the feral librarians sold me into indentured servitude
## later
I was toiling away at the hobbit's potato farm. and i made a plan to escape. but the farmer's daughter found out, and threatened to tell if I dind't take her with me.
so under the cover of night, we tried to escape, but were captured by orcs, who planned eat us during the Festival of the Blood Moon
