# dice pool outcome probability calculator

## Recommended Posts

Has anyone done a program, excel sheet, or similar that calculates the probabilities of success and/or possible outcomes of a given dice pool for SW EotE?

Cheers,

I haven't seen one. However, I was planning on doing some more detailed stat analysis than I had. I'll repost the averages… corrected from prior postings.

Die

Success

Blue +8/24 +16/24
Green +15/24 +15/24
Yellow* +20/24 +16/24
Black -8/24 -8/24
Purple -12/24 -18/24
Red* -18/24 -16/24
White** W=16/24 B=16/24

* Includes Triumph/Despair as Success/Failure.

-X successes are +X failures

More rigorously, tho, averages don't tell the whole story.

For example, since it's simple enough…

Might want to keep this all in one thread.
