Shadowrun 4

Perform a test using the Shadowrun 4ed system.


shrun4(roll, poolSize, target, rollAgain, failTarget)
roll: Dice to roll, tipically 1d6.
poolSize: Number of times roll is evaluated.
target: Value to reach with roll to obtain a "hit".
rollAgain: Value to reach to obtain an extra roll.
failTarget: Value used to compute "Glitch" and "Critical Glitch", tipically 1.
Number of times that roll is evaluated greater than or equal to target.


This function perform a test using the Shadowrun 4ed system.

The value of roll is evaluated (at least) poolSize times. Each time its value is greater or equal to target, a "hit" is counted.

If roll is evaluated greater or equal to rollAgain, then an extra roll is immediately done and counted as above. The extra rolls can be disabled using a value larger than the maximum of roll, i.e. using 7 if roll is 1d6.

Each time roll is evaluated lower or equal to failTarget, a "failure" is counted. If the number of "failures" is greater or equal to half of the total number of dice rolled, then the test is a "Glitch". If no "hit" where counted, the test is a "Critical Glitch".


Some results generated by shrun4(1d6, 3, 5, 6, 1):
[5!,4,4] = 1 (each "!" denotes a hit)
[5!,3,6!»6!»4] = 3 (each "»" denotes an extra roll)
[1,1,6!»3≡G] = 1 (the "G" indicate a Glitch)
[1,1,3≡C] = 0 (the "C" indicate a Critical Glitch)


Supported since Quick Dice Roller 2.0.0
