Roll for Initiative, part 1

Oh hi! Just a short post for the moment because I am somewhat overwhelmed with things. But it can easily turn into some sort of multi-part thing. We're looking at more Perl 6 fun.

It all started when I was looking through Perl 6 docs, pondering what should be my second thing to learn about and write. I came across the metaoperators, which is a treasure trove of rather fantastic things that you can do in other languages just fine but tend to need tedious, repetitive looping constructs. Perl 6? Baked into the language, of course.
