I have no reason to doubt the accuracy of these odds, but at the same time I have verified whether they are accurate. Though it might be useful to SW players and DMs! One interesting take away is that the combat bonuses from tricks and ganging up in many cases can double your chance of hitting when you are facing long odds.

Interesting that a d12 has less of a chance to hit TN12 than a d10 does.

Do those account for Wild die and aceing? If so, then I haven't seen any other tables that do that yet.. very cool.

Oh yes, it does for aceing - that is why the d10 has a better chance on the 12 target than the d12 - Aces. Use the d6 for the Wild Die and add the percents togeather I think to include the wild die. I'm guessing this from just looking at the table though with no formal analysis.
