The GEOpards can trace their lineage back to the initial founding of the Peacekeepers and the induction of the first hybrids into their ranks, when an all Cat-type hybrid special operations unit was formed. Continue reading
Anyhow, we managed to stay on the schedule for a whole month now without much trouble (well, the Ale Wraith article was unfortunately gone for a while, but at least we learned some valuable lessons about our software…)
The Killed Corps is an NPC faction for SLA Industries which may be used as antagonists, allies and patrons (if the PCs qualify) or simply as a sidenote. First, you will find a description of the Killed Corps' background, then a sample of a Killed Corps cell containing six members. At the bottom of the page, you will find stubs for similar organizations in other settings. Continue reading
This article is a bit different as it doesn't focus on a single tool or even system but looks at a broader issue in gaming, social interaction. No, I don’t want to do another tired rant about gamers and poor socialization but look at the much more interesting topic of modeling social interactions inside a game.

You see I don’t get that many emails and each and every one of them, bears its own joy and memory for me. So last week, I get this nifty mail, smelling of lilac and when I open it, my email-program yells at me: »Write the next damn editorial, techmonkey, or else…« So I do what every nice, well-groomed and good-looking ape would do, I sling some feces at my display and turn around.

All good things come in threes, as the saying goes, and with that welcome to the third week at d6ideas and our third editorial. After the other two members of our chief triumvirate already published an editorial, I speak up as third one to get you tuned for the things to come.
For starters, I’m glad we already may welcome our first new members, especially since they are primarily artists so we will be able to present one or the other illustration of our own in the near future.
To me, Unknown Armies is a game, which masterfully blends ancient myths and concepts with contemporary believes. While browsing through the book I always felt, that most adepts take their cues from more recent ideas and cultural phenomenons, whereas avatars mostly refer to slightly more archaic concepts.

While our American team including our editor-in-chief ApokalypseTest is still attending this year’s GenCon (and hopefully collecting impressions for a full-length report) d6ideas starts into its second active week with this new editorial, courtesy of our old world members.
