D6xD6 RPG Expanded Edition

Selected Option:
Hardcover, Premium Color Book
PDF + Hardcover, Premium Color Book

From Origins award winning designer Lester Smith, with former Dragon Magazine editor Dale A. Donovan—and 21 contributing authors—comes an innovative one-stat role-playing game featuring: 

  • Five-minute character creation.
  • Quick-and-easy tactical combat rules. 
  • Endless setting possibilities

The D6xD6 role-playing game is centered on a single stat, Focus. The more skills you choose, the higher your character's Focus number. Choose just a few skills, and your character is very focused. Choose many, and your character becomes a jack-of-all-trades. 

Task rolls are 1d6 x 1d6. Roll high for things you know well; low for things you don't. That single roll serves as both level of success and turn order, making combat quick and easy. 

This 200-page expanded edition contains all the best-selling core game rules, plus 26 settings from a range of genres, including the worlds of popular fantasy, sci-fi, and horror novelists:

As a non-native speaker, the words for campaign, scenario, playset and etc. publishers use always puzzles me. So, the settings means scenarios or simply the world description? Thank you.

I agree, the way some of those terms are used among publishers can be confusing. In this case, "setting" means world description, special rules, usually a sample adventure, and a bit more. You can find a few examples at In this Expanded Edition most of the additional settings are based on novels. So with the rules in those settings you can begin play in the world of those novels.

I was wondering if this is the exact same rules and written in the same way, but with settings added? Or if there are rule changes and edits to the rules?

For all I know it's the same as the small rulebook + it contains all the settings which available separately.

Hi, Benjamin. Thanks for the question. As noted in the product description, this is the core rules plus 26 settings that expand upon those rules. The two editions are completely compatible.

The printer friendly version has text as bitmaps, with severe artifacts showing. This makes it useless for printing, as it gives a really poor quality printout (especially on laser printers). Please correct this.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
