I am passing through. I have not been able to stop in as often as I would like, things are still very rough with no real sign of it improving soon. The situation with the pandemic has made the move I was undertaking, as well as clearing up my father's estate difficult to say the least. I am at a point where I need to sell some of my collectibles and such to make room so I can get things I want to use out of storage.

It is good to see the Rancorpit still here, and discussions still ongoing. I really do miss gaming, but fear I am now getting top old. I had hoped to at least have my D6 and BFG stuff out of storage by now and gaming again.

I liked Whill's April Fool's post, but couldn't figure out what was negative about Polyhedral? Just trying to get some Dark Side Points here... loved that idea (except the fines part, I have no money...I am so poor I can bounce a $20 bill).

I still don't believe that there is such a thing as too old to have fun. Hang in there!

LOL, polyhedral as in "polyhedral dice" — dice with multiple shapes, such as d4s, d8s, d10s, d12s, and d20s. What I sometimes call "D&D dice." All these heathen dice are inferior to our perfect chance cubes (d6s).

Cool

Ok, I get it now.
While it is true that the D6 system overall is one of my favorites, I sometimes find areas it lacks that I enjoy. I did get my start, however, in Paladium's Robotech RPG and later various Heroes Unlimited and spinoffs (Ninjas and Superspies, TMNT and the supplements, and early Rifts) and yes even AD&D (1st and 2nd edition only). Every now and then I miss some of those...and every now and then I feel the urge to dust of my extensive AD&D library... then I stare at myself long and hard in the mirror, splash some cold water on my face, and call my sponsor.

LOL. I make no secret of the fact that I am an old Star Wars D6 grognard. I have lots of other games but I don't hardly ever play them. If I ever run them or play as a player in them, they are one-shot adventures. I'm a Star Wars D6 GM through and through, and Star Wars doesn't need any other dice.

I, too, have been playing D6 for a very long time myself (well, I haven't played in the last 14 years sadly), since around Mid 80's somewhere. I played something at a convention in New York. Still, being a huge fan of giant transforming robot mecha suit anime of the 80's, sometimes I just can't get that feel out of D6. I had been working on improved vehicle and mecha style rules inspired by Jovian Chronicles, but never saw it completed. Sadly the game I loved for this feel (not Jovian Chronicles - too much math there) went through 2 horrible edition changes from the version I loved...so that left D6.
The last campaign I ran was a home D6 Sci-Fi western loosely inspired by Firefly and an old cartoon called Galaxy Rangers. It ran from 2005 - 2008 and served as a test bed for rules I had been developing to publish under the D6 license.

It's good to see you back, KageRyu!

I don't know if I ever mentioned this to you before, but one of my long-time friends (who was also part of all my gaming groups, including D6 SW) had a PC in our long-running supers game named Kageryu (she changed her name from Dai Oni after a change in super powers). So every time I see your avatar I think of my old buddy (who passed away around two years ago from cancer).
