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.

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.
