Axe does order of operations from left to right, no questions asked (outside of parenthesis) . If you want a number from 1-20, you should do rand^20+1

EDIT: and Rand^21 will give you a number from 0-20

I was about to say that (except the first part :P) but you ninja'd me.

Still, I'm sometimes unsure so sometimes I end up using probably more parentheses then I need to D:

Edit: Responding to builderboy's post 2 posts above :P

WAIT back to the original point, rand^19 is still 20 numbers! so if you are setting something to chance, it doesn't matter what numbers you use!

0-19 is 20 numbers (with rand^20), but if you specificly need 1-20, add a +1

It is not, that gives you 0-18, which is 19 numbers.

But axe counts from 0, so 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19
There are 20 numbers! 0 counts with axe! right?

rand^19 cannot give you the number 19, it can only produce numbers 0-18.  Try it if you don't believe me.  Rand^19 produces *only* 19 different numbers, *including* zero

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18 is 19 numbers. Rand^19 chooses from 19 numbers

Ahh, I get it! I was lead to believe that is includes 19! Thanks :)

So then could it still just be rand^20?
