  2. Grey vs Green

    Really kind of depends on how you view the Greys and Greens. Maybe Greys get more Brains. Greens get more Brawns. Give the Greys the possibility of "Mind Control" for a limited time. Give the Greens something like the mytosis, so they can, with a certain roll, split into two, giving them greater numbers. Or whatever you decide is the difference between the two. Unless you purposefully WANT some to be notably stronger, I would suggest being careful with the escalation of stats for the races. You can accomplish the same thing with scale or with caps on stats and not inflate the stats.
  3. OpenD6 Wikia have been Resurrected!

    These two looks nice, I'll add links to them, don't think there are that many OpenD6 adventures there yet. You are welcome to create own pages for them, you wouldn't even need to login to make dits there, or expand it in other ways.
  4. Grey vs Green

    Going to try to make a 2 page Mini 6 setting like in the base document. Was thinking the characters where caught in the middle of a war between greys and greens. For the Aliens I was thinking max Might 3 and Whit 5 or would that mess things up. I am trying to decide if I want the aliens to be player chars or not. I guess I would need to make a race perk.
  5. Mini six magic specializations

    After a time away and returning to look at the rules.... I was thinking treating Magic as a general skill that you must take a subset of. Magic (Psionics) or Magic (Necromancy) Then a specialization of Magic (type) would be a specific spell?
  6. Schools

    Perk School (6) Idea is that you spend 6 of your starting skill dice to go to school. You get 7 dice from the school. But you must take the skills listed. So you only have 1D for skills that you can choose. Magic school [] -Sorcerer -Magic +1D Choose Specialization [] -History +1D Specialized [] -Language +1D Specialized [appropriate for school] Pilot [] -Athletics +1D -Navigation +1D [appropriate for vehicle type] -Pistol +1D -Pilot +2D [] -Repair +1D []
  7. OpenD6 Wikia have been Resurrected!

    Hey there Dunell, I have a couple of OpenD6 things that I created that are free for anyone. They are called "Quick Hits". You can feel free to share the links on your OpenD6 wiki. "Holding back the Red Turbans" https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7K13QUX-9lrcEowUDBfcm9RN3M/view?usp=sharing and "The ghosts of Allendown Moor" https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7K13QUX-9lrUzFLUzVlZF9zUzA/view?usp=sharing
  8. Future of forum.

    Copying things from opend6project.org and OGC to the wiki would make it finally the best opend6 source, and I'll have free time in the summer for that.
  9. Future of forum.

    Yeah, independence from the social media platforms have many advantages. 1. The stability of a traditional forum is good, as is the domain name that have been linked to and mentioned all over the place in rpg-related threads and discussions elsewhere. 2.here we can keep some form of anonymity, and don't have to associate our most personal accounts with as 2. some groups can't be accessed without having an account, like the FB group(that I have yet to been accepted into). the G+ is public to watch(but haven't been accepted there either) 3. The format and accessibility for social media platforms can change, and saving content from them (for the future or a migration) can harder than a traditional forum. Of course, having a site isn't free, at least owning a domain name isn't iirc. I'd see minor ads being a viable option if that is/or becomes an issue. I did recently start updating the OpenD6 wikia with the intention of making it the best and most attractive option for collecting info on WEG, D6 and OpenD6 games, and have links to all associated pages and such, but it's worth little compared to having a forum where people can come together. (Okay I guess there are forums capabilities on the wikia-platfrom but it doesn't seem that great. )
  10. Future of forum.

    A person could say that this site exists as a way to allow people to see the possibilities of what can be with OpenD6. Yes, it's not the most active. But there IS information on this site that will be helpful for those who might become interested. And some of us do come in here to see if there is ever new developments with the site. I'm happy to provide information or ideas for people if I can. And this way is superior, in my opinion, to anything in social media. It conveys more, and keeps the material easy to find, contrary to social media.
  11. Future of forum.

    Currently, it's $40 a month, so $480 a year for the forums. Right now, money is not an issue for me, so the monthly fee isn't driving any decisions. With nothing going on, finding it hard to justify why it exists. Maybe I will let it go a few more months during which I play around with setting it up on a Home Web Server. There will be little thought on it then having it run in the background.
  12. Future of forum.

    Agreed. If there's no burden, then I feel better having this common touchstone out there. If there is a cost, then lets let it go. There are other platforms.
  13. Future of forum.

    Well, while I would love to still have this forum, if it has become a burden financially or time-wise, then I would say do what is right by you, Magman. I pop back in here every now and then to see if there's anything new. And it HAS been really slow here the last few months. There are also incredibly few of us left posting here. But I still get a familiar feel when I come here. This place is like Cheers, long after the regulars have passed away. It's not flashy and new, but you still feel like those people here still "know your name". So I vote for keeping it.... IF you can still afford it monetarily and in the time commitment.
  14. Future of forum.

    Hi, I think that whatever it happens to openD6, this forum is an invaluable source of information for anything we ask about D6 rules, ideas, etc. There is almost always someone who has written something about what you're looking for. Invaluable !
  15. Future of forum.

    You're right, it's become niche, if not else by the passage of time alone with little to no new publications in recent years directly tied to D6 System/OpenD6. It would still be nice to have a unifying platform for D6 games to exist in a more traditional format, but I agree it's not much help if there aren't many users. The size of existing communities on other platforms are quite telling about the general situation. even compared to Star Wars D6. OpenD6 vs Star Wars D6 Facebook: 56 vs 940 Google+: 650 vs 2900 Reddit: 65 vs. 560
  16. Future of forum.

    Traffic here on the forums has been nonexistent the last few months. This question whether keeping it going is even worth it. I understand that the D6 rules an old thought of the yesteryears and nothing new is being introduced. Topics for conversation is hard pressed to come by. Whil, a past moderator of this forums, and a long supporter of Star Wars D6 has taken over the popular Forum Rancor Pit ( http://www.rancorpit.com/forums/index.php ). There are communities out there for everybody's interest, the Rancor Pit is a good example. Perhaps, general D6 just isn't enough to keep interest alive. So I figured I would give the community a voice to let me know what they think and make a case for either side here. Should the forums stay open and why he nobody is coming. Thanks

D6 links, Game Resources and Community pages have many good and updated links to different kind of stuff. Links to the free OGL books can be found, And incomplete list of D6 Conversions is under works. Some more recent OpenD6-based and related games have got their own pages but are bare bone mostly.
