"An elegant weapon for a more civilized age.": Obi-Wan Kenobi. Star Wars: A New Hope
Well, I've decided to do stats today instead of a review of the second part, so today we've added a couple of updates based on the subject of yesterdays review, Star Wars Rebels: Season 3 Episode 12: Ghosts of Geonosis Part 1. Today we've added Klik-Klak & Saw Gerrera (as of Rebels) to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Section of the Site.
What's a little odd, is that I used to try to avoid doing characters, as they are much harder to do than ships or equipment, but there are plenty of days recently when the updates have just been characters.
If you pay attention to our Youtube channel, you'll know that for the past 2 months we've been working on an online system to play Star Wars D6 using. It includes a character creator, and system to allow online play. This system we've provisionally titled BeyondD6.
Although we've got a load of plans to add other features to the system, it already is capable of aiding in Tabletop gaming and online play by moderating Dice rolls and sharing documents and information to players.
So we started Alpha testing the system last week with a new group of players that we're introducing to the West End Games version of the Star Wars RPG through the system, and it's providing interesting feedback and helping us fix a whole load of bugs.
Well, we've decided that for the Beta testing we're going to open the system up to a bunch more players. In fact, to anyone who wants to take part. There will be a short survey before the beta testing begins (which may not be for a month or two), to help us identify the hardware and platform you'll be using the system with (to aid with bug testing) and your familiarity with the D6 system (to help us make the system easy to use for new users).
So if you're interested in taking part, then please head on over to BeyondD6.com and register your interest.
Many thanks in advance.
Not an RPG at all, but a board game, but it's a geeky one, so it counts.
Cosmic Encounter is a science fiction–themed strategy board game designed by "Future Pastimes" (collectively, Peter Olotka, Jack Kittredge and Bill Eberle, with Bill Norton) and originally published by Eon Games in 1977. In it, each player takes the role of a particular alien species, each with a unique power to break one of the rules of the game, trying to establish control over the universe. In 1992, a new edition of Cosmic Encounter won the Origins Award for Best Fantasy or Science Fiction Boardgame of 1991 and placed 6th in the Deutscher Spiele Preis. The game was inducted into the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts & Design Adventure Gaming Hall of Fame in 1997.
Cosmic Encounter is a dynamic and social game, with players being encouraged to interact, argue, form alliances, make deals, double-cross, and occasionally work together to protect the common good.
