What is Open D6 Resurrection?Edit

Open D6 Resurrection is a fan attempt at realizing the goals of Open D6, a project to create open-source tabletop RPG rules based on the West End Games D6 system. Open D6 was begun by Eric Gibson, owner of West End, before the company went bankrupt; the effort foundered through subsequent acquisitions of the property. The D6 system began as the rules for the Ghostbusters RPG, but it was the adaptation for the original Star Wars RPG that popularized the system.

Open D6 Resurrection has two main goals:

1. To act as a central repository of and access point for D6 information, whether created for the project or collected from elsewhere across the Internet

Our long-term goal is to have enough information compiled in one place that the average fan can pick and choose what they want as far as rules, flavor text, and settings, copy and paste from the wiki into a document. and have a ready-made RPG customized for their needs and interests. This is an ideal that may not be reachable in finite time, but we want to keep pushing closer to it. Please help by contributing to the wiki!


2. To provide the rallying point for a community of authors creating new games based on the system.
