I met this albino Raven named Pearl today. It is only one of four known albino Ravens in the whole world.
Pearl lives in this woman’s house. The handler has a permit, and the bird is property of the government (like hawks and falcons). She is affiliated with the California Wildlife Center. Every time the handler stopped petting Pearl she started cawing. She really likes affection.

Here are, as promised, the graphs for the various results.

This only covers neutral or advantaged rolls, but disadvantaged rolls are symmetric to advantaged rolls, so the math there is trivial. Also, players will probably make a lot fewer rolls with disadvantage than advantage over a campaign.

As I suspected, cases D and E are comparable. Case D is in general slightly better, spreads out more evenly, and trends higher, peaking at 14 (10%, 9.6% 13, 9.9% 15) instead of 13 (10.88% 13, 10.71% 12, 10.57% 14)

Using a d20 makes extreme results far more likely than any multi-die system, as expected. Reducing the number of extreme die results to make small modifiers shine more is the design goal of this system.

There’s probably more to unpack in these graphs, of course. But I think this makes the case that on a 2d10 D&D5 system advantage could be handled by adding a third die, rather than rolling twice.

tenleaguesbeneath does a fantastic graphical analysis of how alternatives to rolling 1d20 interact with 5e’s advantage/disadvantage system.
