Makes negative modifiers to X in 6 situations manageable too...just roll multiple dice and treat it like Disadvantage rather than Advantage.Jonathan Linnemanhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04711517194240426383noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4862476909691512457.post-26445422374209342132016-07-08T12:09:28.820-05:002016-07-08T12:09:28.820-05:00Add an added bonus I realized that if you happened...Add an added bonus I realized that if you happened to roll multiple 6s on a single roll (say you rolled 3d6 and rolled 2,6, and 6) you could use this as a quick margin of success for the narration resulting from the roll. Not only did the guy succeed, but he succeeded with style.matthttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04998881232495777586noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4862476909691512457.post-54469960645184843892016-07-08T12:03:51.563-05:002016-07-08T12:03:51.563-05:00I'm not following your math here.

You will only every need a single 6 to be successful, never multiple dice on the same roll.matthttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04998881232495777586noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4862476909691512457.post-17659875739730894602016-07-08T10:27:56.082-05:002016-07-08T10:27:56.082-05:00Statistics are evil so I like this idea Matt.

Two dice ...One dice needing a 6 = 83.3% of success.<br />Two dice needing a 6 = 69.4%<br />Three dice " = 57.8%<br />Four dice " = 40.5%<br /><br />So an extra die is better than bumping needing a 6 to needing a 5 or 6. But three and four dice are less effective than needing 4-6 (50%) or 3-6 (66.6%).<br />StuRathttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18353295670540227320noreply@blogger.com
