Hi. Long time, no see. So, long-term details aside, lately I've been playing Star Trek Online. Actually, I've been slowly getting back into Star Trek over the course of many years. And recently, playing this game motivated me to sit down and take a crack at some ideas I've had in my head for some time now. So, here's a few of them for the rest of you to enjoy!
Star Trek D6 Era Modifier Chart (Plus), Rules Option: Missile Weapons & Range, and Rules Option: Starfighters VS Capital Ships have been added in Supplements D6. It's not much, there's more I'm tinkering with, but how much these options can affect your D6 games goes pretty deep. The Star Trek Era Modifier Chart of course seems setting-specific at a glance, but I added some extra stuff that would work in any scifi setting, such as guidelines for starship refits and retrofits. The chart itself is based on an Era Modifier chart found in the first few pages of Star Wars Galaxy Guide 16 The Old Republic. A quick google search should find this book, published by The Rancor Pit, and hopefully the other works they've created and published over time, all good stuff that enriches the Star Wars D6 setting and rules.
The two rules options are more generalized, though Missile Weapons & Range was done with how Photon Torpedoes work in Star Trek and Star Trek Online and attempts to provide a balanced option to alter their use in Star Wars D6, while Starfighters VS Capital Ships attempts to rework how these two scales work and affect each other in combat, yet once understood should make it pretty easy to apply and use. One of the inspirations for it was the Guns Modifier Chart found in Star Wars Rules Companion which takes capital ships and makes them simple and easy to use in space combat. This rules option attempts to do the same with starfighter squadrons, starfighters vs CapShip events and flow, and still keep things simple (if it's NOT simple, leave a comment, I'll try and keep up with those after the post for a few weeks, and explain any questions that pop up).
So, yeah....hope everyone is doing well after how the past year is gone, and I hope you enjoy these uploads and they help enrich your games.
