News in OpenD6 land and things

So I've edited the wiki now and then, but haven't been as active as previously.

Some noteworthy OpendD6/D6 Sytem-related things have happened in 2019, namely:

Google+ was shut down, and with it the largest OpenD6/D6 System community disappeared

It mostly seems that it was migrated to MeWe, and D6 Online seem to have a small uptick in activity as well. The subreddit doesn't seem to be any more active than previously.

D6 System: Second Edition Announced

The other news is that Gallant Knight Games have gained the rights to make a D6 System: Second Edition, and aims to have a Zorro rpg using the updated D6 System rules published in December 2019.

New OpenD6 Toolkit App

Someone created a OpenD6 Toolkit App for both Android and iPhone.

I'll continue to …

New Admin

I became Admin some hours ago, and have now improved and expanded the navigation bar.

Later I'll start to rebrand the wikia from "Open D6 Resurrection" to simply "OpenD6 Wikia", and move the "Resurrection manifesto" and related text to a page of their own. It would by all reason be called a past chapter for the wikia, with the founder not being active in 7 years. Have to see how I'll improve the front page and make it more intuitive at some point.

Hopefully others join here to add D6 Homebrew games and related pages. It should be easy as most pages don't even need a wikia username or login to get started.

It seems I should carefully think what to place on the "MediaWiki:Description" page that shows as the text under google searches.

Major amount of links and pages added

I've continues to expand the wiki, partially with original articles, partially with some copypaste for elsewhere. I've replaced some dead links with webarchived versions when possible, and left others in comments if useful in the future.

The OGL for OpenD6 have been now included together with some thoughts of their implications. Community and Game Resources have been added to supplement D6 Links. A Mirror page have been created to preserve all possible links and Mirrors to the OGL books.

I've also reached out to the various communities about the new revival here so there might be done more work by others. could be used to populate base articles about opend6 rules, and categorized under OpenD6 and OGL.

Cleanup and new activity - 2018

I made some cleanup of defunct links and such, will see what else I will do. I've been a fan of the D6 system and by extension, fan of OpenD6 and want to make an effort to make this page useful. Considering dropping the "Resurrection" from the name of the wiki as it have been for all intents and purpouses stagnant for long, with outdated links to forums, FB groups, even Google Wave! Seriously.

Simplifying it back to OpenD6 might make this site easier to find in the future. Will have to think about it.

FreestyleD6 developpement

Hi there

Gamers about my age often can't play as often as they'd like. Jobs, kids, all those things are time consuming. Of course we'd like to play GURPS or Pathfinder for example but those game systems are complex and needs time to study in order to keep them at their full potential. Do I have time for this? No.

That's where the D6 system comes. It's simple and can cover any situations with the same simple mechanic. It's perfect for everyone especially for GM's who have no time like me. Even with that system, things have to be narrowed down bacause of the lack of time. Again, I have no time to study the variant rules of the D6 core rules. I'd better spend my little time into preparation of an adventure.

So here comes Freestyle D6. I have thi…

Back to D6 II

Hi again

As I was writing in my last article, I'm back into D6 after a long time. Now I wan't to tell you some things about my setting and how I handle the rules.

Setting :

It's Star Wars. 500 years BY, a colony was being evacuated because it's sun was going mad and was going to become a supernova in an unpredictable way. A group of colonist, divided in a couple of huge transport ships, escaped into a rushed hyperspace as the sun exploded. A flare hit the group of ships and all technological things broke. The ships got out of hyperspace into a unknown planet and crashed onto it. Stranded on that hostile planet, the survivors learned to live without any technology. Back into a middle age kind of life, the player characters are descendants of t…

Back to D6

Hi everyone

Since I don't know where to start in my contribution to the D6 community, I decided to start with an article. Nothing scientific or all, just impressions about my return into the gaming world.

In 1987, as many of you, my rpg world got to a totally new direction with the Star Wars rpg and it's incredible and simple game system. Back then, I was much into D&D and Marvel Super Heroes. Since then, I've played a lot of games but got back to D6 regularly. In the 90's, I worked my own house rules and presented them into the D6&D6 website. In around 2002, I've stopped playing the D6. I was interested into D&D 3e and the chaosium Basic rpg. But I've never forgot D6.

From 2005 to the end of 2009, I was too busy to play at all. I've played a…
