    Hi all! I'm currently days away from releasing a cross platform app for Android and iOS that lets you manage your OpenD6 characters. I've been working part time on this for fun and plan on releasing it for free sometime this weekend, likely. Here's a quick video showing you the work to date - https://youtu.be/3GGaBId5rp8 The project is open source and the project code is hosted here - https://github.com/sentry0/OpenD6Toolkit Features: Die roller Supports both classic and Legend styles of rolling Statistics are also tracked on your dice Character tools Select a template to build your character from Automatically calculates your point cost Supports the three base genres out of the box (Adventure, Fantasy, Space) Supports all options (Advantages, Complications, Special Abilities) Save/Load/Delete characters Game Templates The app supports custom game templates that may be used to build characters There is a companion project for sharing templates here - https://github.com/sentry0/OpenD6Toolkit-Game-Templates Custom templates means you can support games that use the Mini-6 ruleset easily Future Plans: Embed the full SRD into the app GM tools (campaign log, initiative chart, NPC health tracker) A library of OGL OpenD6 and related games Thanks!

    There is no official tutorial...I'll have to write one For now this will have to do: Go here Copy the file contents into a text editor like Notepad (or Notepad++) Give it a name by editing line 2 Add/Edit/Delete attributes and skills (or anything else for that matter) Save the new template to Google Drive/iCloud or to your phone directly Tap the "Upload" button under the "Templates" section on the home screen Select your template Build your character I can help you with the above if you find yourself running into issues.

    Is dodge specialization allowed? In a Star Wars D6 game I was in, the GM fairly resonably forbade dodge specialization, with the argument that it would mostly be used to make a character (cheaply) impossible to hit with guns. I think in general, brawl or melee parry of some sort is the proper skill to defend against close combat attacks. In SWD6 dodge specialization isn't given as an example, but don't think it's disallowed, it just is used to defend against ranged attacks, guns/grenades, not unarmed or melee weapon attacks, so balance-wise it might work out diferently depending how your system have spread the offensive and defensive skills. Dodge shouldn't IMO be a catch-all defence, whether or not the D& sytem you use tells so. What game system are you playing, is it D6 System/Adventure or some other of the WEG titles? At
