I used to consult a web page which let me choose what dice I wanted to add in my dicepool and then generated the probability of different results. This was really handy to gauge ahead of time how hard to make encounters for my players. Now I can't seem to find it.

It looked a lot like this:

Except it listed percent.

I found this:

But I find Excel to be a hassle to use compared to a webpage with an easy ui.

Anyone know if the page Im talking about is still available? And what the address is?

Yea, there was a really nice one out there that showed your chances of getting 1,2,3 successes and 1,2,3 boons/banes, etc.  Is that the one?

It's not available now, but the internet way back machine will have it archived at some point.  The copy I've got is the simplified version and  only shows the chances of 1 or three successes, but doesn't show the % chance of other dice effects.

I like to use it to evaluate new house rules (such as when we stopped doing recharge for active defenses).

I've got a perl script I wrote a while back that does it. I should probably make a Javascript version and punt it online somewhere. I'm starting to run WFRP again this weekend. Looking forward to it.
