Thank you for staying tuned.

The most important thing to share right now is that I don't have any significant news to share about Mini Six Revised.

Last year, I made an attempt at finally doing it, and it turned into another project completely, so far removed from Mini Six that it's something else entirely. I don't think the world really needs another multi-purpose RPG engine right now, at least not by me, so I shelved that and started over.

And every time I get to work on Mini Six, I end up right back at that unintentional diversion again and again, like it's a magnet that keeps drawing me in.

I still have cognitive issues which means that I work slowly. For those who used to spot me elsewhere on the internet, you may have noticed my greatly reduced presence. It's not like I have nothing done for Mini Six, but it's far from being enough to justify a new edition right now.

The rest of this is personal, so feel free to skip it.

Most important is a family emergency which has me concerned. Last week my dad appeared to have a heart attack. A  week-long visit to the hospital uncovered a deeper problem - non small cell lung cancer. We're still waiting on the final staging diagnosis, but it's highly likely to already be stage IV. He's uninsured so we've got challenges ahead of us that I can't fathom yet.

If you smoke, stop now. I know you've heard it a million times in your life, and I know it's hard to quit. Please believe me, in what I've seen in just the last week and what I understand of what's coming, you don't want to go through it or put anyone else through watching you go through it and being unable to stop it.

I expect to be very busy elsewhere for some undetermined amount of time, then when I'm not "busy," it will be an even darker time. So I don't know what to expect. I don't know if I'll return to Mini Six Revised first or the other project.

I look forward to seeing you're doing with Mini Six and OpenD6 in general.

  1. Dear Ray,
    I download Mini Six years ago, but for me was unfound.
    I love it, thank you very much.

  3. Hey Ray,
    So sorry to hear about your Dad. And your issues too. I hope it's all going to turn out okay. Don't worry about a revised edition, it rocks as it is.

    I'm playtesting the follow up to Mighty Six, the superheroes version, under the working title, "Sixcelsior!" , I'm hoping to have it out this year. If you ever have the time and want to see it first, please let me know.

    Take care, be well.
    Paul
