Mini Six Character: Brother Gregorius Moghan O’Seachnasaigh

Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for Anglia – the 100 Years War/Dark Fairy Tale England setting that occupied his fancy for a while, and is threatening to again. This character was built using straight the Mini Six rules, but if this ever winds up going anywhere I’m quite sure I’ll be building out a system that’s slightly more involved than Mini Six (but less so than full-on Open D6) from the various parts I have on hand. But that’s a topic for another day.

Countless messengers died to insure that word reached the Archbishop of Baile Átha Cliath that all was not right with the continental Church. Ever since the ascension of Pope Lucius IV – after the tragic (and suspicious) death of Pope Urban VI in 1378 – many questionable actions and decisions had come from the heart of Lucania. When the local Master of the Chandler’s Guild reported, in 1379, that orders from the continental Church’s representatives called for a drop of goat’s blood be added to each candle as it was being poured, the Archibishop began making his plans. And when news of the Gaulish invasion of Albion (at the urgings of Pope Lucius) arrived, that plan went into action. Stout-hearted monks from all corners of Hibernia were dispatched, in discreet numbers, to Albion and the continent. These pure souls were commanded to do what they could to uncover whatever dark secrets were driving this decidedly unchristian behavior and to assist those who resisted the disquieting papal decrees.

    Hey, I just wanted to give you some mad props (er, you know) for your Mini Six material. I just recently got serious about looking at the game, even though I was a Star Wars RPG and D6 System fan from way back, I’d gone away from it looking at light, narrative systems like Risus, Wheel of Fate, etc. I appreciate that you’re making material for the game, and making really decent material, at that. I’ve been toying with writing up a Fallout inspired post-apocalyptic setting for the system, along with a ton of my other gaming ideas starting to migrate over to D6. So, yeah. Keep up the good work! Hopefully I’ll have something to share, also, in the months to come. Oh! Your luchador stuff is awesome, too, and I’d love to see more of that, along with any ideas about how to incorporate the mysticism of the masks themselves into game mechanics.

      Thanks, Jason! I appreciate the kind words, amigo. I’m in quite a slump gaming-wise right now, but as I crawl my way back into things I’ll keep posting Mini Six stuff.

      I look forward to seeing what you wind up producing as well!
