Probabilities and specialties

Hi all,

I was curious as to what the bonus dice do to your chances of success in the system. The chance of success chart in chapter 11 doesn't account for them. Has anyone run the math?

It would take a pretty large chart to include the effects of each number of bonus dice. A basic guideline is that the more test die you have, the more effective a bonus die will be. Also, the effectiveness of individual bonus die decrease with each additional bonus die.

I've used the programmable die roller hosted here to calculate the probabilities for specified numbers of test and bonus dice, and to determine average damage against a given CD and AR, but I haven't created any kind of generalized table of my results. Was there anything in particular you wanted to know?
