Hello all! I'm new here, but I've been running the numbers on the new dice for Twilight 2000 and I thought I would come and share in case anyone was curious.
Basically, rolling a d8 which succeeds on an 6+ is roughly equivalent to rolling three d6 which pass on 6+.
Rolling a d10 which gives 1 success on a 6+ and 2 on a 10+ is roughly equivalent to rolling four d6.
Rolling a d12 which gives 1 success on a 6+ and 2 on a 10+ is roughly equivalent to rolling five d6.
Hthat gives you some idea of what to expect with the new dice pools.
So it means that in T2000 you will be able to use a similar system without needing to handle so many dice. It will also let you add in the ammo dice without the numbers of dice getting silly.
