All game tests within Star Traders are resolved as if rolling real dice of different sizes as D(n) where n is the number of dice sides. Any and all percentage type bonuses are applied before dice are rolled. Note: In common parlance, sometimes players will refer to "Standard Dice" as "Weak Dice". They are the same thing.
|Big Die (n)||D(n)||damage calculations||A single big dice is rolled with as many sides as the input.
Big Die (28) rolls a 28 sided dice.
|Weighted Die (n)||(n/2) + D(n/2)||Crew Combat Initiative and other values where a minimum is desired||Half of the input is immediately granted and the other half is rolled as a Big Die(n).
Weighted Die(28) is equivalent to 14 + Big Die (14).
|Strong Die ()||D(10), success on rolls above 6||Skill Tests||Rolling 10 Strong Dice is equivalent to rolling 10 D10s with a target number of higher than 6.

|Standard Die ()||D(10), success on rolls above 8||Skill Tests||Rolling 10 Standard Dice is equivalent to rolling 10 D10s with a target number of higher than 8.
