Principle designers of the D6 System: Greg Costikyan, Greg Farshtey, Fred Jandt, Douglas Kaufman, Peter Schweighofer, Bill Slavicsek, Bill Smith, Ed Stark, George R. Strayton, Paul Sudlow, Eric Trautmann, Nikola Vrtis, Teeuwynn Woodruff

 

I'm absolutely positive that the list above is incomplete, and that's where all of you can join in! If you know of D6 sites out there that I don't have listed, either PM me or post to this thread, and I'll add them to the list. To minimize the length of this thread, I'll be adding them in without replying below, so if you suggest something and then spot it on the list soon after, don't think you missed it the first time! ;)

 

If any of the links don't lead anywhere, try running them through this site:

 

http://www.archive.org/web/web.php

 

I think I've got most of the obsolete links out, but I may well have missed some.

 

You may notice that some of the sites listed above were rescued by the Wayback Machine - only two sad omissions I ran into - Sir Lamorak's D6 Site, which used to be a frequent stop of mine back in the old days, and home to a well done Babylon 5 D6 conversion as well as Conan D6 and many others, but the Wayback Machine cannot access it, and the old West End's Devoted Game Enthusiasts (WEDGE) which apparently was lost to the ages...

 

Thanks in advance for any resources you bring, and thanks for keeping The D6 System going strong 23 years after Star Wars 1st Edition first appeared!

Wow. This is a nice list. When things slow down a bit I'll add it to the wiki. I've been working on a "serials off" version of Underworld D6 called Nosferatu D6 and didn't know someone had a near complete system readily available. Thanks!

I wonder how many of the people with websites on the list could be convinced to donate some of their homebrew material for adaptation as generic Open Game Content (minus any licensed IP of course)?

Happy news! I've found Sir Lamorak's Web Page ( http://web.archive.org/web/20010607135510/www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Alley/8037/myd6page.htm ) in the Internet Archive! Looking at the site, though, I think that the old Babylon 5 and Conan conversions must have been on Floyd C. Wesel's site - need to find the old URL for that to plug it in - but the Traveller, Star Frontiers, and ShadowRun stuff has been rescued from the maw of oblivion!

 

Another big favorite on this page - conversion data for GURPS to D6; so it may be just a page or two long, but opens up the whole GURPS line for D6 System play (except for vehicles, which I've never seen a conversion for); Lensman, Humanx, Tschai, Ancient Rome, WWII, Autoduel, Transhuman Space, OGRE, Warehouse 23, and a gajillion other sourcebooks, all waiting to be played!

You're right - it's not D6 conversions, just extra stuff for Shadowrun. The Mana Brothers site looks like it might be the only SR conversion out there. But it's a good one. They did Space 1889 as well. Sorry for the mistake.

Thats to bad . . . . I use a lot of Shadowrun stuff in my game

 

Kal's Super Simplistic Shadowrun Conversion System

 

6L = 4d (based on the normalization that a generic pistol does 4d damage)

+1 pip per number increase or damage class increase

(so an Ares Predator doing 9M does 5d+1 since it is 3 more and 1 damage class more, so 4 more)

 

For gear and guns etc, SR prices = D6 prices

 

For cyberwear/bioware, D6 price = 1/3 of SR price

Interesting, much more thorough conversion. I actually completely tossed Essence etc out the window, my setting operates on the assumption 'properly installed and maintained cyberware of decent quality has no harmful sidefeccts' (improperly installed, improperly maintained cut rate cyberware also doesnt use essence, it just uses 'the DM can inflict whatever problems he wants, without mercy, but oh boy it is so very cheap!')

 

The hypothetical 18D assault cannon would do 9d damage in my system, as opposed to 8d+9 in that one

 

Big difference is in mine a 6L pistol does 4d, in that one it does 1d+3

 

Though part of the difference may be he uses HP and I use wounds, also, their goal is to play Shadowrun in D6, my goal is to allow me to use Shadowrun books and web stuff as D6 add ons while the basic system is pretty much still Star Wars 2e RE

Welcome! Just wanted to jump back on the thread to say I'm a huge fan of your work! Just found the new update of Jazz over at John Kim's site - quite a change from the earlier versions! I like it though, it's like Over The Edge with just a little more crunch. And Legacy, and Under The Broken Moon, and Rough Magic... Dang, well, here I am sounding like a Fan-Boy!

 

Welcome again - great to have you with us!

Fixed the link - I guess they must retire them over time. I'll check the other MediaFire entries to make sure that the sun has not set on any of the others... Thanks for bringing that to my attention!

 

Update: The others appear to be working - not sure what went on with Babylon 5. Enjoy!

Well, after a long time due to life's complications, here it is a Spanish translation of D6 Adventure.

I hope is perfectly OGL-compliant (thanks for the help, Grimace).

Well, bad news, folks. The site where D6 Universe was hosted was hacked...BADLY. The server shut down the site due to the hacking.

 

So, as soon as I get the files for the site, I'll be looking for someplace new to put up D6 Universe. Until that time, however, it is not accessible. :(
