Actually 3d6 means roll a 6 sided die 3 times so you would have a result of 3-18

so this:

> roll.rb "3d6" 6

Would actully be: (RND = Random)

RND(3-18) RND(3-18) RND(3-18) RND(3-18) RND(3-18) RND(3-18)

Below is 3d6 from the DnD Dice Roller on Wizards.com.  The +0 would be
a modifier from depending if it was an attack roll or a defense roll. 
For our purposes you would remove the +0

Roll(3d6)+0:
1,6,6,+0
Total:13
