Welcome to the forums.

I moved your thread to the roofing forum as you mentioned rooftop rot.
Use this for pictures......... How-to-insert-pictures

Hard to tell from just pics but it doesn't look bad. Despite it's name, dry rot is caused by excessive moisture [roof leak] With the possible exception of a rafter tail in the middle pic your wood appears to be in good shape.

Seems to me that you just need to give it a coat of paint.
