Mini Six Characters: Darghast & Molnara

Wherein your humble scribe presents a couple of characters he whipped up in honor of the arrival of his print copy of Mini Six. For the record, it should be noted that I have never played a single D6 game of any vintage by any publisher. I only bought into Mini Six because I was so impressed with the effort the AntiPaladin Games guys put into it and I love nice light systems to tinker with. Oh, and the subtle little Warren Zevon reference in the rulebook makes me happy.

Molnara found Darghast face down in a pool of filthy rainwater in the alley behind the Flagrant Fox. She noted that he was short a couple of teeth when she lifted him up with her giant hands, and as she slung the rogue over her shoulder the stench of Fool’s Own brandy that emanated from his every pore was so thick as to be nearly visible.

“Tsk, tsk, Darg. You really shouldn’t go to this part of town without me, you know,” the warrior gently lectured her friend in her rough & smokey voice.

“Grnshp. ButIwaswinnng. Before. Uuuungh.”

“Sure you were, Darg. And I’m sure you weren’t cheating at all. And that’s certainly not why Krogan and his boys treated you to a visit to the alley,” she continued as she made her way through the midnight streets of the Plum Street district, winding through its less dangerous sections to try to get back to their rooms at the Old Boar’s.

“Fnshwa. NalvinandSandohadmback,” Darghast slurred, stifling a laugh that would only have caused his head to hurt more.

“Nalvin and Sando? You really shouldn’t put your faith in friends like that pair. It doesn’t matter how well connected you think you are, Darg. No one likes a cheater. Not here in Franziltown, anyway.”

“Franziltown! Wemightwnnleavbefore. Sunnnup…”

Molnara stopped dead in her tracks and hauled Darghast’s limp form from her broad back. She held his nearly insensate form directly in front of her face, her eyes narrowed, her jaw set.

“What. Did. You. Do, Darg?”


“What? Hunsding? What does that mean, Darg?”

In later days Molnara would often remind him of what happened next. Of how he had emptied the sad contents of his guts on the ground (and her) and passed out completely just as the three Huntsmen stepped out of the darkness where they had been waiting for the rogue and the warrior, swords glinting in the moonlight. Of how she had single-handedly defeated two of them with her axe and send the third running back to his Guildmaster with one less ear for eavesdropping. And of how she had managed to get them clear of Franziltown before the Guild could properly deal with them. All while Darghast slept like a baby, snoring loudly and occasionally muttering softly to himself.

      Actually, I think that would be quadruple overtime when you factor in LL, BoL/BotA, BRP and then add in Mini Six. Oy!

      The sad news is that I don’t think I’m really taking on the “new task” – at least not full time 🙂 But I won’t swear off it, either. Think of it as an occasional pick up gig.

    I’ve only just come across this system actually. Seems nice and easy.
    Actually I was part of a CoC game the other night- first time playing that system. And I really enjoyed it!

      It definitely seems good & minimal. As noted, I don’t have any history with D6 at all, so this is all new to me. I don’t think I’m going to get too deeply into Mini Six, but it’s nice to have a new system to play with (as if I don’t have enough already!).

      You know, I’ve never played CoC, but I do love the BRP system that powers it. I’m glad you finally got to give that one a go, Gobbo. It’s just about my favorite system these days. I mean, I love Labyrinth Lord (and the other old school D&D& stuff) and, of course, BoL rocks. But since BRP hits the sweet spot for me and the guys I get to game with regularly, I think it gets to wear the crown.

    Quadruple overtime! Gah! But certainly appreciated. I am about to officially announce that AV&ES will be coming out over the next year in two different systems. The second release will be Mini Six and I am working a bit of overtime myself to get the first set of rules ready. My plan is to release two core books (one for each set of rules) and a few supplements for each. We will see how it flies.

      Hey! Now that’s some exciting news, amigo! Can’t wait to hear more.

      So you’re going to do separate lines for each system rather than just dual-statting a single line? Is the content going to be different in each, or just the game info? I’m just curious about such things, since someday eventually I might try to release something myself. I always loved the old multi-system books (a la Thieves’ World) myself, but then again, I’m a freak.

  3. bat

    Well, I would love to dual-stat except for two things:
    1) I will be operating under two different licenses, using permission from one writer to use some of his material that I cannot use for Mini Six.


    2) The first game is .vs Monsters, which has a totally different, almost nihilistic setting. I have been trying to write for that system for years and I was recently given permission to use material not in the license. Ancient Vaults & Eldritch Secrets: .vs Shade and Shadow is a stark and bleak version of my blog while the Mini Six game will be a bit mellower and more traditional. I am almost done with all of the writing and playtesting for the .vs Monsters game and it will be heading to layout soon!

      Crazy stuff there, comrade bat! I haven’t actually read or played vs Monsters, but if Phil Reed is granting you that kind of permissions, I’ll definitely have to check it out.

      I had no idea Mini Six had caught your attention so deeply. That’s cool, and I can understand why – the fellas did great work putting it together (and did us a great favor in doing so!). I’ll certainly be looking forward to this project of yours.

      “As busy as the bat” may have to become a new colloquialism in my book!
