As some of you may already know, Blue Max Studios has been developing new and original content for OpenD6 since last September. To date, all but two of our current releases have been for a new Hard SF setting, The Black Desert. Basically, I decided that instead of waiting an indefinite amount of time working on the Core Rulebook before trying my hand at publishing, I would get my feet wet by writing supplements to build up a fan base and to get experience in the business. I highly recommend this to those of you who are thinking of starting your own game design companies, working for a current one, or going solo like me. But now the time has come. I have a lot of fans, a lot of support, and a good bit experience in writing for publication and meeting deadlines. Therefore, Blue Max Studios is proud to announce the official release date of our first full-length, original role-playing game for OpenD6. Let me put it in bold for you: The Black Desert Role-Playing Game will be released on December 16th, 2011. This gives me plenty of time to finish the game while keeping up with my prior commitments and still lets me publish in time for the Holidays. I pride myself on having never missed a product release date, even when my computer crashed after getting a virus. I for certain do not intend to miss this one. To all of you who have offered encouragement, advice and support, thank you.
After months of research and trial and error, I have finally developed a unique Character Sheet for The Black Desert Role-Playing Game. It has what I hope is an innovative layout with easy to read and intuitive entries. Some of the more unusual features are the Combat Displays, which allow a Player to put all of the information needed to use their favorite ranged and melee combat skills in one place, and the Damage Tracker, which combines the utility of hit points and the tradition of wound levels in a streamlined, easy-to-use package. The full document with all the explanations is too long to post here (especially with the pictures) so I have provided a link to the full article here. I am hoping to get some feedback before I release the Character Sheet in a free PDF. Thanks in advance! Ray McVay, Blue Max Studios
Starting in 1996, this was document that was given out for free by WEG for all of those who owned the original 2E ("blue Vader") and didn't want to buy a new rule book (despite how superior the layout and design of the R&E book was). This was really cool of them to do even though it had been over 4 years since the previous version of 2E had been released (unlike D&D 3.5 only 3 years later). Looking at eBay etc., the blue Vader 2e book is dirt cheap while the pretty R&E is not so much. I recommend getting R&E (or both if you can afford to), but I thought that we should have the free Rules Upgrades rules posted here somewhere for those who can only afford the 2E book but want the R&E updates to the system. This is a web version of the document.
