A mad scientist needs only one more part to complete his doomsday device ? and you?ve been hired to protect it...
As part of a covert operations team, you need to infiltrate a government embassy and retrieve important files...
Along with a clairvoyant kid and a quirky mystic, you use your own extraordinary abilities to fight crime in the big city...

Combining the best of over 15 years of D6 System design, D6 Adventure Rulebook provides you with the basics for playing in a wide range of modern settings, from the Wild West to the Near Future, such as pulp action, espionage, and low-powered super heroes. You'll get everything you need to add the popular D6 System to your favorite setting, including:

    • three different yet compatible methods for creating characters ? customizing pre-constructed templates, using defined dice distribution limits, and distributing a pool of points;
    • over 80 character options (Disadvantages, Advantages, and Special Abilities) plus numerous variations of each that allow you to further customize your character;
    • your choice of relying on a Body Points or Wounds damage systems, both equally interchangeable with a single combat system;
    • detailed rules for psionics and magic (including numerous sample spells);
    • dozens of generic equipment and character examples to get you started in your adventures;
    • the essential rules separated from the optional rules, to allow you to decide on the level of complexity.

The accessible format includes an introduction to using the book and the system, a solo adventure to test out the rules, and ?what's in this chapter? introductions to help you locate the information you need.

This electronic version incorporates errata.

142-page, 8.5x11, one-color game rulebook. Extensive art.

So now that a new company took over, the once free open d6 books, are now $3? Wow. Glad I still have my free copy to give to my group, to reference. What’s next, Open d6 going away too? :(

Supposedly, the artwork was never released into the Creative Commons, only the text. Also, OpenD6 was lost the moment the company went out of business because under its license, you cannot use use the logo or name without the permission of the company which is now defunct.

That can't be true. I still see tons of stuff being released under Opend6 license.

You are correct. The ogl cannot be rescinded. Nocturnal media has stated that the 2nd Edition D6 is not ogl, but that open D6 exists. Some of the old D6 core books are not ogl such as the art.

I still do not understand something. While I get West End Games, owned by Eric Gibson is gone, he released these books, D6 Adventure, Fantasy and Space as open gaming and had no issues with it being free and in fact you can still find these books listed under open d6... now because another company bought West End Games, they decided to charge people? That's really not cool of them.

Why it now cost $2.99? Something has changed since the old free version?

New ownership - Nocturnal Media is now behind it. Note that it shows me that I still own a license, despite having "bought" the free version.

Some punctuation above like dashes and apostrophes are misprinted as question marks (?).

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.
