'Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,' the borderer said, still staring somberly at the Cimmerian. 'Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.'

Year Zero Engine: Twilight 2000: Success rates.

I am almost certain there is some magical statistical way to figure this out, but although I have some knowledge of stats, I don't have that much.  I do however have enough knowledge to write a simple script to generate a LOT of random numbers.  So that is what I did.  

The script rolled each die 100,000 times and assigned success based on a roll of 6+ on either die.
