Anybody knows the distribution of symbols on dice faces for the Hero and Enemy dice?

Hero dice were something like, 2 hits, 1 double hit, 1 "explosion hit", and 2 blanks. I don't know about the enemy dice, may be pretty close to the same.

There are shields (Hero dice) and Nemesis (enemy dice) sides, too. Although I don't know how many of each.

Hero (white dice) have one shield, one shield & hammer, two single hammers, one double hammer and one critical success.

Rolling one white %s:
33% = one success
22% = two successes
19% = one shield and one success
17% = one shield
~4% = three successes
~3% = one shield and 2 successes
~1% = 4 successes OR 3 successes and one shield

And you have around 1/4th of a percent (about 25 chances in 10 thousand) where you will do better than 4 successes by chaining criticals.

May fortune smile upon thee!

So if x = average number of successes from one die, then:

x = (3/6 * 1) + (1/6 * 2) + (1/6 * (1 + x))
x = 1 + x/6
x = 1.2
