After looking at AnyDice’s Documentation and Function Library, I remain baffled. I know that AnyDice can do this, but I don’t know how to tell it to. Scott Gray’s Dice Pool Generator is easier to use but doesn’t return the results I need, or, at least, I lack arithmetic sufficient to force it to.
The mechanic uses a 6-die pool with a target number of 4. I need to know the percentage chances of rolling a 4 or higher on 1 or more, 2 or more, 3 or more, 4 or more, 5 or more, and all 6 dice in the pool using the following pools of dice:
- 5d4 and 1d6
- 4d4 and 2d6
- 3d4 and 3d6
- 2d4 and 4d6
- 1d4 and 5d6
- 5d6 and 1d8
- 4d6 and 2d8
… and so on until 6d12 becomes 5d12 and 1d20. I can do 6d4 and 6d6 myself, but I wanted the progression to be clear. (I’m skipping d14s and d16, by the way, because I couldn’t find d18s, and most folks don’t own d14s and d16s anyway.)
Can this be done?
By the way, the results needn’t be from AnyDice–that’s just frequently mentioned as a good odds generator. Results are the important part not the tool.
