OpenD6 Toolkit

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I'm currently days away from releasing a cross platform app for Android and iOS that lets you manage your OpenD6 characters.  I've been working part time on this for fun and plan on releasing it for free sometime this weekend, likely.

Here's a quick video showing you the work to date - https://youtu.be/3GGaBId5rp8

The project is open source and the project code is hosted here - https://github.com/sentry0/OpenD6Toolkit

Features:

  • Die roller
    • Supports both classic and Legend styles of rolling
    • Statistics are also tracked on your dice
  • Character tools
    • Select a template to build your character from
    • Automatically calculates your point cost
    • Supports the three base genres out of the box (Adventure, Fantasy, Space)
    • Supports all options (Advantages, Complications, Special Abilities)
    • Save/Load/Delete characters
  • Game Templates

Future Plans:

  • Embed the full SRD into the app
  • GM tools (campaign log, initiative chart, NPC health tracker)
  • A library of OGL OpenD6 and related games

Thanks!

I can look into printing from the app, I hadn't thought of it actually.

I don't plan on doing a desktop version of the app at this time.

Over the past month I have been working on a cross platform app called the OpenD6 Toolkit. My intention with the app is to allow people to play OpenD6 games and its variants from a mobile device as well as provide useful tools for players and GMs alike.

I’m pleased to report that OpenD6 Toolkit is now available via the following app stores:

The project is open sourced and hosted on github here.

Features

Die roller

  • Supports both classic and Legend styles of rolling
  • Statistics are also tracked on your dice

Character tools

  • Select a template to build your character from
  • Automatically calculates your point cost
  • Supports the three base genres out of the box (Adventure, Fantasy, Space)
  • Supports all options (Advantages, Complications, Special Abilities)

Game Templates

  • The app supports custom game templates that may be used to build characters
  • There is a companion project for sharing templates here
  • Custom templates means you can support games that use the Mini Six ruleset easily

Let me know what you think of the work so far.

Thanks!

Very interresting and useful. Miss a "how to" make custom template : any tutorials ?

Tank you again

There is no official tutorial...I'll have to write one :)  

For now this will have to do:

  • Go here
  • Copy the file contents into a text editor like Notepad (or Notepad++)
  • Give it a name by editing line 2
  • Add/Edit/Delete attributes and skills (or anything else for that matter)
  • Save the new template to Google Drive/iCloud or to your phone directly
  • Tap the "Upload" button under the "Templates" section on the home screen
  • Select your template
  • Build your character

I can help you with the above if you find yourself running into issues.
