  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Stormglass links

    You must have moved it again, as when I follow the link, it shows "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist."
  4. [Mini Six Fanatic] Site update

    Caring about D6 and Mini Six is a good thing.
  5. Yeah, it's definitely something to really consider!
  6. Help me convert Indiana Jones!

    It is basically every point equal a pip. So a Dexterity of 9 is 9 pips, or 3D. Vehicle Piloting of 11 is 2 points higher than the base attribute (DEX), so that's equivalent of 2 pips (not 2 dice!). When you add the skill of Vehicle Piloting +2 to the base attribute of 3D, you end up with 3D+2 (the equivalent of 11 pips). In your example, if your attribute was 3D+2, and the Vehicle Piloting was +2, you would add 2 pips (one to get to 4D, the second one to go to 4D+1). So you have it correct in that you divide by three and use the remainder as pips. But you have to take the difference between the SKILL and the ATTRIBUTE when figuring these. So an attribute of 8 is 2D+2. But a skill under that attribute of 9 is only 1 pip above the attribute. So you would add +1 to the attribute of 2D+2, resulting in a total of 3D when rolling that skill.
  7. another magic system (first draft)

    Sounds like there are a lot of ideas flowing.... good to hear!
  8. Spoiler/Teaser

    Not a bad design! Might want to add some color to it, though. That will kick it up to the "heroic" level.
  9. allocated

    Yep, I read it the same way. 2 to 4 spells, with a maximum of 6 with specialization.
  10. Testing

    Reading you 5 by 5
  11. Skill use

    Pickpocket is definitely NOT a core. Stealth might be. Search, yes. Tracking, maybe Wit...will depend on your use of it.
  12. Nocturnal, WEG and OpenD6

    It will depend on whether Nocturnal releases it under the OGL or if they keep it all under Product Identity and fully copyright protected. Best to read the fine print on Nocturnal material that comes out.
  13. Hand to hand

    Might start getting into the "too specialized" for a core rules. Difficult to say for sure. I guess it depends on whether you think it is important enough to be considered "core", or if it's just a further refinement that is optional at best.
  14. Nocturnal, WEG and OpenD6

    OpenD6 is open. Not much they can do about that. They can make changes to D6, official changes, and NOT make them open. That's their prerogative. But what's been opened will, under the OGL license, remain open.
  15. Game enhancing cards

    I think I remember a brief, and rather small, release of cards that people could get for D6. It was supposed to add enhanced things you could use to describe things and fire your imagination. I've never seen them, and I knew of only one person who ever had them (online), and they didn't find them particularly amazing (more like an "interesting idea, but not really necessary"). I don't even know if they are even posted anywhere online. I have never seen them.
