Probabilities

I've heard some potential Risus GMs say that they're put off because they can't work out what target numbers to set. These tables are an attempt to help with that. Cross-reference the Cliche rating with the approximate percentage chance you want, and it'll give you the TN to set.

Percentage Chance
Cliché Rating 25% 50% 75%
1 die TN 5 TN 4 TN 3
2 dice TN 9 TN 8 TN 6
3 dice TN 13 TN 11 TN 9
4 dice TN 17 TN 15 TN 12
5 dice TN 21 TN 18 TN 15
6 dice TN 24 TN 22 TN 19
Percentage Chance
Cliché Rating 20% 40% 60% 80%
1 die TN 6 TN 5 TN 3 TN 2
2 dice TN 10 TN 8 TN 7 TN 5
3 dice TN 14 TN 12 TN 10 TN 8
4 dice TN 18 TN 15 TN 14 TN 12
5 dice TN 21 TN 19 TN 17 TN 15
6 dice TN 25 TN 23 TN 20 TN 18
