Notes
 Be careful using random numbers in multiplayer, each client will come up with a different result. See multiplayer tutorials for more general information about locality.
 The number returned is unlikely to be a whole number.
To return a whole number use either round, ceil or floor together with random:
x=round(random 5.499) will return 0,1,2,3,4 or 5. The .499 was added to create a more equal chance to get 5. Note that 0 is still less likely to occur than 15 in this example, which would need to be countered with: round ((random 6)  0.499)
x=floor(random 5) will return 0,1,2,3 or 4.
x=ceil(random 5) will return 0, 1,2,3,4 or 5. (0 is very unlikely, but possible, as ceil 0 is 0)
