    The second edition of Fire Ruby Design's Summerland is featured in the Halloween sale at DrivethruRPG, along with a few supplements and adventures, until the end of the month. Unlike the original, this new edition is an Open d6 game. I saw the first edition when it came out and found the premise intriguing, but didn't like the look of the rules. This makes it a lot more attractive.

    Looks like the death of G+ might breathe some life back into this place! 🤯

    Hello :-) I am a retired programmer and an active tabletop RPG player and referee since the late 1970's - mainly D&D and Traveller. After many years developing Java backends, I am free to develop whatever interests me and I have decided to develop an application which enables people to create RPG campaigns and adventures, plus hold gaming sessions using peer to peer networked sessions. As an ex-professional developer, I am aware that this is a big task however I have the time, skills and experience to take this project on and deliver it iteratively. Rather than pottering around the garden (which is a very pleasant way to spend a retirement) I want to spend my days building this. I have decided to use the OpenD6 rules because I like the rules and as they are open sourced, I can legally use them. I don't want to create my own rule system, just code an application that uses an existing rule system. The application will be free to download and use. This I see as my contribution to the OpenD6 community. I will also be producing a programming course that teaches people how this application has been developed, which will help to fill a strange void in the JavaFX tutorial world as there is a dearth of high quality tutorials detailing how to use complex JavaFX applications. That will be my contribution to the programming community. I will be monetising this project tangentially by setting up active Patreon and Maker Support accounts at some point in the future. I am looking for people who are willing to test each iterative release and provide bug reports and user feedback. There will be a set of requirements - around ten to fifteen - that each release is intended to satisfy and these will need to be tested for compliance and reported on using a simple online form. I need a set of people who use Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. Although I have spent the last six months getting up to speed with JavaFX from a technical point of view, aside from small tutorial applications, I have never built desktop applications before. I was a backend coder. So the first thing I will be focussing upon is ironing out any teething problems relating to packaging and distributing a simple 'hello world' application that is easily installed onto Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems. From that point onwards, the project will fall into a standard iterative development and release cycle. If any of you are interested in testing my work, then please comment below and thank you in advance. roy kinson

    I'd be willing to help with maybe a minimum contribution financially, but also willing to test Windows and Linux. Sorry I won't be any help with the Mac effort.

    @rKinson Not necessarily, I just wanted to clarify that I could help with testing, but not financially. When you do set up your Patreon account, share a link here, so we can forward it on!

    I can also help out with testing, and also use Windows. Unfortunately, funds are extremely limited in my household right now. I'll check back here regularly and see how things are progressing and help out any way that I'm able to.

    I wish you luck in your endeavor. I use Windows, and have good knowledge of D6 in all of its iterations. I could help out with testing if you are in need of people. I cannot help out monetarily.
