There is no difference between the GOO editions in terms of content. I preordered the deluxe edition and helped them proofread (I'm credited in the book! Look, I'm an industry insider!), so I have the pre-publication PDF, the publication PDF, and the book. The PDF and book are the same. The editions are the same except for cover art and page edging, etc.. ...

I have the Song of Ice and Fire Campaign Guide ...

This is quite tricky to do, there is no direct formula, but there are some ways to aggregate results to avoid having to check all 68 possibilities. I think the formula is too complex to discuss on rpg.stackexchange. AnyDice can do this, and it looks like it is coded with a reasonably efficient algorithm. My Ruby gem games_dice can also do this, and might ...

Points in Green Ronin's favour: Guardians of Order is out of business, and what you see with the GOO PDF is all you're ever going to get; Green Ronin is alive and (as far as we know) financially viable, and so at least has the chance to continue producing material. Green Ronin started later to the game; this means they had more of the author's work to work ...
