I've been thinking about how to best portray Frequentalist approach to probability and its effect on RPG design, in a Finnish RPG designer meetup. My slide for the concept starts to look like below. Any comments? The scenario is simplified to maximum abstraction level still understandable - for demonstration purposes.

Missing data in words:When succes rate is 1/3 --> Assuming the GM needs 2 times as much time as a player, and if a turn lasts for 6 minutes real time, the players will spend 3 minutes succeeding, 9 minutes failing and, 6 minutes following GM actions.
