OpenD6 was created by Eric Gibson, the owner of West End Games, as the new standard for the D6 System -- a pen and paper roleplaying game which was used in such classic games as Star Wars D6, The Ghostbusters RPG, and Indiana Jones D6. His goal was to make the D6 System more available and customizable to the fan base at large.
OpenD6 offers fans of one of the most popular cinematic systems a new way to get their favorite game. Combining the best of over 15 years of D6 System design -- including systems appearing in Men in Black, DC Universe, Hercules & Xena, and the awarding-winning Star Wars roleplaying game -- each OpenD6 rulebook provides an attribute and skill set tailored specifically to the genre while using a game engine that's cross-genre compatible.
