New Project Delayed

I expect to publish the probabilities app in 2-3 weeks.

I was not expecting a branching probability app to be more complex than writing an A. I. for grad school.  All told, this project will be relatively short, but it stretches my mental capacity more than grad school did.

New Project

In the next couple of weeks I should be publishing a new app.  I am making a probabilities calculator for Blood Bowl.  I wanted a calculator that could have success on multiple branches and have more than two outcomes per roll.

I will use a Blitz Action as an example.  Knocking the defender over is a success.  The attacker getting knocked over is a failure.  Otherwise, the player will then have to make a dodge.  What is the chance the player gets away?  My application will be able to answer that.

Also, the application can track actions across multiple turns with multiple team re-rolls.  I hope the full-features of the program do not overly complicate the user interface.
