Category Archives: Open D6


So, combining my recent interest in Mini Six/Open D6 and my never-ending desire to make a samurai game out of whatever I’m poking at at the moment (I’ve been down this road before, haven’t I?) here’s a couple of Mini Six characters who wouldn’t be out of place in a game of Bushido.

Kuroda Heizo
A very serious samurai

Takahama Miiko
A charming yakuza
Might 1D+2 Agility 3D+1
Wit 3D+1 Charm 3D+2
Skills: Kiseru 3D+2, Unarmed Combat 3D+2, Dodge 4D+1, Trading 4D+1, Gambling 4D+1, Bluff 4D, Charm 4D, Intimidation 4D, Persuasion 4D

I’m using the skills straight out of D6 Fantasy at this point, rather than the slimmed down lists found in Mini Six. I think I’m falling into the “use core D6 for most things, use the static defenses and simplified wild die from Mini Six though” camp the more I poke at this stuff. Which is, of course, my prerogative 🙂 Goodness, I love toolkit games.
