Multiple Symbolic Dice?

Is it possible to do multiple symbolic dice?

2d6, for example?

I’m not quite sure what you are trying to do.

2d6 would be numeric, not symbolic dice.
Symbolic dice are used if you want to get results that are not numbers, say
, , , .
As such, there isn’t really much in the way of a combination that would be
any different than just a list of the individual values.

Symbolic dice are just that - they will show the symbols (i.e images) you
provide them be it in a window or on the toolbar. There is no reason you cannot
do 2d6 though as you can assign numeric values to each image (or die face if you
will) and have it report the total just like the standard numeric dice. Check
the designers guide or ref manual for the $result$ / number value syntax how it
works

What I was wanting were images rather than a text output. I was able to find an implementation of this in the Arkham Horror module (add multiple dice to the Symbolic Dice object).
