I'm very confused. I have a PDF called Unbound Unlimited, which looks very similar to this, but I got it a few years ago. But now, I only see this one listed on Drivethru, so I can't compare the two. In one of the discussions here, I believe I read that the publisher said Unbound Unlimited was forthcoming. Is that a new Unbound Unlimited, in which case I should hold off on buying this, lest I basically buy the same thing 3 times ... or did this come first, and the Unbound Unlimited that I bought was actually the expanded version of this, in which case there's little point in me buying this? Or is this the latest iteration of the game, with no new addition coming in the foreseeable future, in which case, I should go ahead and buy this? I want to support your company, because I have a huge place in my heart for the D6 system, and I think this version of it brings it into the 21st century, along with the Zorro RPG and Mythic D6, but I'd rather just donate some money or something, rather than have multiple versions...See more

So I have been taking a look at the Essence rules. The Difficulties seem rather high as any other test is rated from 1-10. Essence difficulties can go much much higher than that, You can bring that down with negative effects but I was thinking of halving difficulty, rounding up.

Hi Justin. That is a great fix for the rules and you should use it going forward! I've been working steady on Unbound Unlimited - the next "edition" that will enhance the Unbound experience (and includes a bestiary). The revisions have already included a reduction on Essence difficulties (playtesting is very approving of the changes). If you have any more ideas or comments it might be better to send them to battle-grounds@hotmail.com for a more speedy reply.

Im looking for this type if system. One thing that is a pet peeve for me is they often have the decision of using an action to attack or defend. Does this system do that?

You can take an All-out Defence action, to increase your defences, but actually defending doesn’t take an action. You have a Defence rating which is rolled against attacks.

Having now started converting this game to some of my favourite settings, (Lone Wolf, Fighting Fantasy and Warhammer) it is remarkably robust and flexible. It also combines the best parts of other game systems I love (d6 system, Genesys, Prowlers and Paragons) while providing something easy to pick up and create characters for. The Archetype system is great for creating races, with game balance baked in, and the Advantage system is an elegant alternative to hundreds of traits seen in other games. Name it, Rank it and you are done. My personal house rule, when creating archetypes would be to also allow 1 Rank in a Defining power, or 2 ranks in a Helpful power. That’s 4 points, the same as 2 ranks in an Advantage, keeping it balanced with the other options. That allows a GM to create races with special abilities not handled by the other options (such as large or small creatures, special senses, natural psionic is etc). Anyway I can’t wait to see other supplements!

There is a lot to like here- a decent reinvention of the d6 system, using success based dice pool system, rather than rolling and adding. And it should be pretty good at dealing with most genres. I wish, however, it didn’t use exactly the same stats as D&D - I can’t see the point of that and feels a little lazy. I would rather it had drawn inspiration from earlier west end games. My personal take is to use Strength, Constitution, Dexterity, Knowledge, Awareness and Presence (and Essence).

Thank you for your kind words Justin! The D&D stats are just so "universal" I felt that anyone into rpgs could quickly relate to them. Maybe a little lazy? But honestly, it was just to give new players something to immediately recognize. Game on!

How does this version differ from the previous?

Thanks for the interest and your question! This version has been greatly expanded and cleaned up. We took the monsters out of this edition and expanded the rules and character creation. Almost every aspect of the game has been fine-tuned.

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.
