The Statistician’s Guild: Graphs

Here are the previously promised graphs. Each series represents the desired number of net-hits.  The vertical axis is the cumulative probability.  The horizontal axis is the DEF of the defending model.  A special thanks to quotemyname for encouraging me to post these in a timely fashion. Enjoy!...

Welcome to the Statistician’s Guild!

It’s been a long time since I’ve written for Muse on Minis.  I could give the ‘I’ve been busy’ excuse.  The truth is, when you’re passionate about something, you make time.  I haven’t been THIS passionate about a miniature game for close to two years now.  That said, the thrill is back, and with it another article on applied statistics.  This article is a light intro to a different style of dice mechanics vs. my previous articles....

Mathematically Proving John Demaris’ Feelings

This article is a follow-up to Episode 122.  The MoM crew asked me to do two things:  Prove John’s feelings with math. Illustrate the breaking points in significance for DEF and ARM. That first bullet is going to be challenging.  John is a complex guy.  He’s like an onion: comprised of layers.  I’ll do my best to construct a postulate based on those layers, but like an onion, when you get into one the wrong way… things might go...
