What Is the D6xD6 RPG?

The D6xD6 RPG is a quick-and-easy system for running role-playing games. This Web site consists of a draft of the core rules, five example settings, and an introduction to twenty-one other settings published in the expanded book, as well as news, comments, and a few other support materials.

In the D6xD6 RPG, players can create literally any type of character, based on a unique dice mechanic and a single attribute—Focus. Character abilities are defined primarily by chosen occupation, which together with a list of secondary skills determine the character’s Focus number. Very focused characters are automatically better at their occupation and the few skills they know; less focused characters are better able to succeed even with skills they’ve never trained in.

Layered onto this central mechanic is a modular combat system playable either abstractly (as storytelling) or with map and miniatures.

The individual setting chapters add another layer of specialization, representing the worlds of more than two dozen professional authors so far. (See the right sidebar.)

Creating a character takes just five minutes or so, and a character can fit on a business card. To play, you’ll need two standard six-sided dice. (Or you can use one of our specialty Doubledice!)
