Just curious. I have the Markings of the Victor Feat that make so I roll two dice on my first attack, however I hit a creature that makes me reoll when an attack hits (Second Chance). Do I reroll both dice or just the die that hit?
Just the one that hit.
Markings of the Victor says "The first time you make an attack roll during each encounter, you can roll twice and use either result". However, an ability that let you roll twice on all attacks (like the Avenger's Oath of Enmity*) should allow you to reroll both.
* Corrected. Good catch Metafictional!
In fact, Oath of Emnity has specific language about what happens when you're forced to reroll.
It's still the same "your first attack roll", so you still get to roll twice on the reroll.
Here's the way I see it. Markings of the Victor says: "The first time you make an attack roll during each encounter, you can roll twice and use either result".
Second Chance says: "The attacker must reroll the attack and use the second roll, even if it is lower."
So the reroll Second Chance forces upon you is no longer the first attack roll. If Markings of the Victor said "the first time you make an attack during an encounter", I'd think you'd still get to roll twice on any reroll that you would be forced to make.
The issue came up recently in my D&D game, and while I think I'm right, it caused enough headaches that I think I'll just avoid mucking with other people's die rolls in the future. ^_^
