Dice Mechanics: Examples

World of Darkness (Revised)

         The revised World of Darkness system from White Wolf Games is a target number dice pool system. The player rolls a number of d10's equal to her attribute plus skill. Each die that is 8 or higher counts as one success. Each die that is a 10 counts as a success and allows you to roll one additional die.

Number of Dice Chance of <N> Successes
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
1d 70% 27% 3% 0% 0% 0% 0% 0% 0%
2d 49% 38% 9% 3% 0% 0% 0% 0% 0%

         Obviously, these results are rounded to the nearest whole percentage.
