Roland Nelson is a character role-played by theLGX.
Roland is an enigmatic character best known for his precarious lifestyle of letting a pair of dice decide every decision he makes. It has gotten him into trouble a number of times, but he stands by his motto "live by the dice, die by the dice."
Owns a taxi business, named Lucky Taxi where he rolls his die to decide whether to pick up passengers or not and where to drop them off. During the taxi ride he usually talks with the passengers about how he got into the Dice Life and persuade people into the Dice Life.
He is usually seen wearing a high class jacket with a yellow/brown checkered pattern, aviators, a grey shirt, slim black trousers and oversized shoes, which he claims are very expensive.
Roland Nelson was born and raised in Los Santos, San Andreas. Not much is known about his early life but sometime in the past couple of years he got into gambling and loved the feeling of excitement and adrenaline, so much so that he decided “why lose that feeling when you leave the casino when you can feel that way all the time”. That’s when he decided to live his life like a gamble, rolling a pair of die for every decision he makes.
There are people in the city that take advantage of the dice rolls, like asking Roland for his money or asking the same question again to get answer they want. Such people are known as "Dice Abusers". To protect the integrity of the dice rolls against Dice Abusers, Roland has certain rules in place:
- No rolling the dice when money is involved. [Changed to include rolling when buying something]
- No rolling the dice again for repeat questions. [will now allow many rephrases]
- No rolling the dice for questions that puts the dice in harm.
- No rolling the dice for gambles at the casino. [Changed to don’t have to roll when at Casino]
- No rolling if the question is to harm someone (Court Ordered to add this rule) [Changed by self to not count indirect harm as under court order]
Major changes not to do with specific rules:
- (New development) will not roll when angry.
- At the very start of 3.0 when Molly held a gun to his head and ordered him to to what she said, he complied, but that would be one of the last times he wouldn’t roll for an order or question like phrase (Exept a few times when it was very beneficial, comedic or life threatening)
As time moves on and he goes more insane the rules of the dice get looser each and every day.
Events decided by the dice include (but are not limited to):
- Snitching plans made by Sven Snusberg, Lang Buddha, Bogg Dann and Arush Patel Santana to the police.
- Axe murdering a cop after being prompted to do so by Lang Buddha.
- Snitching Molly Minaj's plan to buy Sven Snusberg a gun without a license to the police.
- In his first official gambling event hosted by Leland Jones, Roland won the $1,000 prize.
- Roland was pulled over and handcuffed by Kael Soze of the LSPD for suspicion of possession of a stolen car. While Soze and his partner Dan Faily were distracted, Roland ran, still cuffed. Roland spent hours running around the city cuffed trying to find a way to get himself out of the handcuffs. "Downbad" Mickey helped him tremendously on this venture and getting him out of the cuffs.
- Conspired to assassinate the mayor Andi Jones but was stopped by Lil Erf before it could take place.
- Broke his legs after doing a back-flip off the Maze Bank Tower after saving the life of Frank Fritugo during a routine fishing trip.
