Star Wars D6

## Star Wars D6

 Mon Apr 27 23:29:57 2015   by   Rebel Scum I was surprised not to see this mentioned on your site or under the list of frequently used die rolls; so if it is already somewhere else my apologies.In the Star Wars (D6) system, the main mechanic is as follow:You roll X number of 6 sided dice and sum them, one of those dice is predesignated the "wild" die. If that die rolls a six you re-roll it (after adding the 6). The wild die can explode an infinite amount of times, adding 6 each time. If the wild die rolls a 1 then you do not add that 1 to the die pool sum; and you ALSO do not add the highest die of the remaining pool of dice either (failing on the wild die cancels your highest non-wild die roll) Is there a simple expression that will handle the highs and lows of the wild die for a pool of X dice? (1 die pool is only the wild die) I havent been able to get it working Mon Apr 27 23:50:05 2015   by   Rebel Scum I was surprised not to see this mentioned on your site or under the list of frequently used die rolls; so if it is already somewhere else my apologies.In the Star Wars (D6) system, the main mechanic is as follow:You roll X number of 6 sided dice and sum them, one of those dice is predesignated the "wild" die.
