That's totally  awesome Bynw.  Thank you.

Giving up on figuring this out the mathematical way. I resorted to counting. Not sure about my accuracy as I am doing this quickly on my lunch break.

To have a success roll of a 5 and/or 6
1d6  total different outcomes 6     those with a 5 and/or 6 are 2            2/6      =33.3%
2d6 total different outcomes 36    those with a 5 and/or 6 are 20        20/36     =55%
3d6 total different outcomes 216  those with a 5 and/or 6 are 152     152/216   =70%

Due to the nature of this being a play-by-post game. I'm adding a nifty feature.

Anytime you roll all 6's for a Test for your character you get a Hero Point.
So on a Disadvantage Test, that's just one 6 needed since you only have one die.
On a Standard Test, then you need two 6's to get the hero point.
And on an Advantage Test, all 3 of them need to be 6's.

I've reviewed the posts for the game and it hasn't happened very often yet. But it has happened twice so far ...  PMs coming with your point totals.

Off to run several errands in town before the freeze hits, and get a few major chores completed. Feel free to use Aliset as needed.  (Within the bounds of good taste and common decency, that is. Remember those nuns are watching you!   ;D )

I take it that doesn't include Columcil so far forgetting your status as to ask you to wash his bloodstained robe.

LOL!  Well, you can ask, but be prepared to be met with a puzzled stare before she shrinks your robe, never having done her own laundry before, much less anyone else's! ;D

Help - you are talking to the person who only passed my Maths "O" level (Exams taken at 16 when I was at school- they are called GCSEs now unless that has changed again) because Demercia forced a few vital bits of information into my head.

I have no idea why we have plural Math this side of the pond - singular would have been more than enough for me.

Father Columcil had leant back against the rough stone of the wall, his emotional state almost as bad as the physical pain he was suffering. He had seen death before, many times, sometimes hard, painful death. But he had never before taken a life, and he had never, even for the few condemned men he had accompanied to the gallows, seen life taken with such vindictive enjoyment as poor Kieran's had been. But Sir Washburn was looking over towards him and, besides, he needed all his energies to focus on his own physical healing. He put his emotional and spiritual turmoil into the part of his mind where he kept that which was confided to him under the seal of the confessional and drew a mental veil over it, then turned to greet the knight with a smile, even managing a joke.

He was surprised at the warmth of the other's tone and at the gentleness of his touch; even more surprised at the ease with which the other's mind enfolded his as he felt renewed energy flow into him. Maybe he could even share what he felt as he healed. Close as their minds were it seemed natural to speak directly into the other's thoughts.

Place your hands on mine, and allow yourself to sense the energies. ((rolled to see if Columcil can mindspeak Washburn since they are in rapport 1d6 4,5,6 is "yes", 4 2r8xz1hjmw - yes!))

If Washburn was surprised by his use of mindspeech he made no sign but obeyed as Columcil pushed aside his gathered robe and placed his hands into the wound in his thigh. He focused on the torn blood vessels and sinews being rejoined and then withdrew his hands a little to allow the skin to knit. (( 2d6 3+6=9 17c4jvw8mp)) Then he slid his hands down his leg but the wound there though painful was little more than a scratch and required but little healing. Throughout it all he was aware of Washburn's hands on his and the touch of the other's mind and as ever the sense of another presence touching his at the moment of healing.

Columcil shook the skirts of his habit down and as he did so Washburn's touch gently withdrew from his mind. It crossed Columcil's mind to wonder whether he had been foolish to allow so close a touch from one so nearly related if he were to protect the secret of his parentage but without the energy so generously given he doubted that he would have had the strength to heal himself. This whole journey was taking a direction so far out of his hands that he would be best simply to trust that he was being led.

Turning to Washburn he said simply "Bless you, my son". Then more formally, "I'm rather out of my depth here, my lord, what happens now? Do you suppose it is safe to try and join Darcy and the Lady Aliset in the nunnery." He smiled and added, glancing down at the mess of clotted blood that was now the skirts of his robe, "I hope their Laundress will be as able and as welcoming as the Infirmarian."

When doing the math on the odds of rolling the dice. Most of the time when multiple six sided dice are concerned the math is done against the sum total of the 2 or 3 dice in question. So the odds of rolling a 5 or 6 on 2d6 is very good, if you are looking at the total. Because it can be done with 1+5, 2+4, 3+3, 1+4, 2+3. But we are looking at rolling a 5 or 6 (most of the time) on any single die. Sometimes we only get to roll 1 die, other times we get 2 or 3 which of course increases the odds.

I was trying to do the math, but my math brain totaly escapes me.
1d6 rolloing a 5 or 6 is 33%       1d6 rolling a 4,5,or 6 is 50%   no math required there
2d6 Rolling a 5 or 6  is  ?%   (is that 4/36?  that can't be right because that is 1/9)   
3d6 rolling a 5 or 6   is  ?%   Brain freeze!


I reviewed my dice rolls.  I have done 32 rolls total, 10 rolls with a 5 or 6 showing that is 31%. that is acceptable.
Rolls for Wash 19, 5 rolls with a 5 or 6 showing  that is 26%. below average
Rolls for other than Wash 13, 5 rolls with a 5 or 6 showing  that is 38%  above average.  This is why the bad guys are doing so much better.

I admit that I am not including the few rolls Wash has used focus to make a 4 count and once he used hero point to make a 3 count. Those are supposed to improve your average to above 33 % not bring it up to 33%.
So if I roll for the bad guys I will roll them on a different account or on the chat room instead.

Those rolls were in our chat room, yes? So it's ok if we use that as an alternate means of dice rolling, since either way you'll see the results? That might be easier, since the other site has a habit of assuming it knows what I want to roll better than I do, or changing my subject line back to a previously used one at random moments. I swear that thing hates me!   ;D

Yes those were in the chatroom and since I'm always in the chatroom you can use it to roll dice if you want to as an alternative. But sometimes, as my past player DesertRose will tell you. Even those dice are not always friendly towards you.

LOL, indeed!   Sometimes the dice just hate you.  ;)
