    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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."

    [Mini Six Fanatic] Site update

    Caring about D6 and Mini Six is a good thing.
  7. Yeah, it's definitely something to really consider!

    I'll be hanging out in the chat room for the next half hour if anyone wants to chat about whatever.

    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.

    another magic system (first draft)

    Sounds like there are a lot of ideas flowing.... good to hear!

    Spoiler/Teaser

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

    allocated

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

    Skill use

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Magic

    If it works for you and your players, then use it! I never understood the convoluted nature of the Magic system in D6 Fantasy, etc. books. Just too much work and none of the enjoyment. It's the very reason why I came up with my own Magic system (highlighted in "Magic & Miracles"). I didn't relish spending a lot of time calculating up spell upon spell. I wanted a completed spell listing without all of the "bones" showing in it. I don't care how the spell was built and all of the features that added to the difficulty to cast it. My players didn't either. They wanted to know what they needed to roll to get the spell to work, and what the spell did when they rolled that number. That's it! So if you have a player who loves to spend a lot of time calculating up spell after spell, then hopefully this system works out better than what was published in the D6 Fantasy book. It never worked for me, and I have something different now, and no reason to use a spell construction formula, but I hope this works for what you're wanting it to do!

    Hand to hand styles

    Interesting idea. If you give it a play through, let me know how well it works.

    General char classifications

    Maybe "Thinking Based" as well, for the educators, inventors, scholars Otherwise, I think you have the vast majority once you add in Pilot based.

    Still being published?

    Somehow I don't think so.

    Messages

    Savar, you may be at or very near capacity for your messages. I sent a message to anlarye, but before I could, I needed to delete some messages from my inbox. I was "over" capacity. I believe all of our prior messages from the old site also ported over, and this site has less capacity for keeping messages. So clean out your inbox and see if that alleviates the problem.

    Chat room

    No, that was under a much older discussion board format. This site has undergone a number of changes since then and the chat room is no more.

    Professions

    If a profession has a "requirement", will you offer opportunity for a starting character to gain skills needed for the requirement before they actually get to chose a profession? If not, it may be a bit like a "unicorn" in that people see a profession but cannot get it because they cannot meet the requirements, so they chose a different profession and will likely never think of changing their profession once they achieve the requirements. Or am I misinterpreting what you mean by "requirements"?
