Here is a Character Sheet: Mini Six BKE Character Sheet

The Future of Bare Knuckle Edition.

A lot of things are up in the air. There is no absolute timeline because I'm bad at meeting deadlines.

  • Adjust numbers based on feedback from further playtesting.
  • Add a "grimoire" of rote spells
  • Add more guidelines for magic
  • Work on vehicle rules (maybe)
(Not really a) FAQ:

Q: When is the print version coming?
A: I haven't announced a print version.

Q: Where are the mini-settings?
A: This version doesn't include any mini-settings. I don't have firm plans to include any.

Q: What about this thing that's missing that was included in Bare Bones Edition?
A: Everything changed or removed from BBE was done intentionally. If it's not included, it's not part of BKE.

Q: I preferred Bare Bones Edition.
A: That's not really a question, but BBE still exists. You can ignore BKE.

Q: Is BKE an OpenD6 game?
A: No. OpenD6 was released under the OGL 1.0a license. That license is not compatible with the CC-BY-SA license BKE was released under. I have no right to claim that this game is an OpenD6 game, and terminology unique to OpenD6 has not been carried over to Mini Six: Bare Knuckle Edition.

Please send feedback to Ray Nolan,

Mini Six: Bare Bones Edition (OGL, 2012)

Mini Six BBE is a variant of the OpenD6 system. It's generic, though there are several starter campaign ideas presented including fantasy, science fiction, and a lighthearted take on a 1970's cop action show style game.
