I'm making a column chart about certain dice rolls in the game Descent: Second Edition, and the problem I'm having is that there are multiple dice of the same color in the standard rolls. For example, you could roll a red die, or two red die. I would like to be able to color code the dice rolls, but with the fact that this can cause ambiguity, I would like to be abler to make checkered pattern, with line borders, so one can see if I'm talking about "red-red", "red", or "red-blue-yellow."
I would also like to be sure that when I apply this pattern that it repeats, so it doesn't end up stretched or squashed depending on the columns height. If it came down to it, I could devise a "pin stripe" design to make that moot, but, that's the thing, I don't know my options.
Here's what I have now. Notice the ambiguity and confusion in the colors.
Here's what I would like to be able to do. Just by looking at it, you can tell what's being referred to.
