Blades in the Dark Probabilities

I received my copy of Blades in the Dark. Curious about the probabilities, I wrote up a ruby script to generate the dice pool results from 0 dice to 6d6.

I’ve tabularized the output for easier reading.

Pool Size Critical Success Compromised Failure
0 0% 3% 22% 75%
1 0% 17% 33% 50%
2 3% 28% 44% 25%
3 7% 35% 45% 13%
4 13% 39% 42% 6%
5 20% 40% 37% 3%
6 26% 40% 32% 2%

For those that prefer a graphical representation:Graphical representation of the above table

Or if you prefer a FASERIP style chart

  1. I never did complete a statistics course, so when I made my attempt to figure out the same probabilities, my numbers were off. What formulas did you use to determine your percentages?
