# Interacting with the DnD example

If you haven't already, run through the full implementation example

This guide assumes you are familiar with Solidity development frameworks such as Truffle/Hardhat.

# Prerequisites

The contract will be deployed on Rinkeby testnet. You will need:

  1. wallets with test Eth - for example from the faucet (opens new window)
  2. xFUNDMOCK tokens for each wallet interacting, including the owner. See contracts for the Rinkeby testnet address, and call the gimme() function to get 10 xFUNDMOCK tokens.

# Deployment

Write your deployment script for your contract (this will be dependent on your framework of choice). You will need to pass the two contract values to the constructor for both xFUNDMOCK and the VORCoordinator. These can be obtained from contracts.

Once you're ready, deploy your contract on Rinkeby. You can also optionally verify the contract source code on Etherscan.

# Initialise

Once deployed, we need to call a couple of functions to set things up.

# DnD.increaseVorAllowance

The first thing we need to do is allow the VORCoordinator smart contract to spend xFUNDMOCK on behalf of our DnD smart contract. This allows us to request random numbers, and for the VORCoordinator to transfer fees to the VOR Oracle Provider.

increaseVorAllowance can be called from your framework's development console, or if you have verified the source code on Etherscan, from their "Write Contract" feature.

The amount should be suitably high to cover any future costs. Many services (for example Uniswap), do this once with the maximum allowable uint256 value "115792089237316195423570985008687907853269984665640564039457584007913129639935"


increaseVorAllowance must be called by the wallet that deployed the DnD example smart contract

# xFUNDMOCK.increaseAllowance

Each wallet that interacts with the DnD smart contract and intends to call the rollForHit function will need to allow the DnD smart contract to spend xFUNDMOCK tokens on their behalf.

The increaseAllowance function can be executed on Etherscan (see contracts for the Rinkeby address), using Metamask etc. Similarly, the amount should be sufficiently high, and the spender value should be the address of the deployed DnD smart contract.

# VORCoordinator.getProviderGranularFee

It's good practice to check the current fees for your contract before requesting randomness. This can be done by calling the getProviderGranularFee function in the VORCoordinator contract and passing it the keyHash of the provider Oracle you're requesting from, along with the address of your smart contract.

The getProviderGranularFee function can be called on Etherscan (see contracts, or via a helper function in your own contract using the IVORCoordinator interface in the ConsumerBase library.

# Interact

Now we have the boring stuff out of the way, we can actually run the game. As before, these functions can be called via your Solidity framework of choice or via Etherscan.

# DnD.addMonster

This must be called by the wallet that deployed the contract. It's possible to add up to 20 monsters, with each one requiring a short name (for example "Orc"), and an AC value between 1 - 20.

# DnD.monsters

monsters has a built-in getter, which will accept the Id of a monster and retrieve its stats. The result returned will be the name and AC.

# DnD.changeStrModifier

Each wallet calling the rollForHit can optionally change their STR modifier, up to 5. This modifier gets added to the d20 roll when the randomness request is fulfilled.

# DnD.rollForHit

A wallet can call the rollForHit to generate a random d20 roll to determin if they hit the monster or not. There are 4 required parameters:

  1. The monsetrId of the monster being hit. See DnD.monsters above
  2. A seed value - this can be any number, and gets mixed in with the random number generation
  3. The keyhash for the provider you wish to fulfil the request. This can be obtained from the providers page.
  4. the fee amount required to pay for the request. This will be deducted from the wallet calling this function.

::: warn A VOR Provider's base fee is available on the providers page or by querying the VORCoordinator smart contract. This is the minimum amount they will accept for fulfilling a request.

However, providers may also set granular fees on a per-consumer contract basis, because not every contract is the same and more complex consumer contracts will incur higher gas costs for the provider.

The current fee for your contract can be acquired by calling the VORCoordinator.getProviderGranularFee() function and passing the provider's keyHash along with the address of your contract.

The VORCoordinator address is available on the contracts page. :::

Once a request has been initialised, the VOR Provider Oracle will see a RandomnessRequest event emitted in the VORCoordinator smart contract, generate a random number, and call your contract's fulfillRandomness function to complete the process.

# DnD.getLastResult

It's possible to monitor the DnD contract's event logs and watch for the HitResult event. This indicates that the VOR Provider Oracle has fulfilled the randomness request.

Calling the DnD.getLastResult function requires 2 parameters:

  1. player - the wallet address of the player that rolled
  2. monsterId - the ID of the monster they attempted to hit

The result returned will be something along the lines of:

  roll: '17',
  modified: '19',
  result: 'hit',
  isRolling: false
