15/16 – Looking back… or is it forward?


Looking back and looking forward is naturally en vogue these days including on (German) RPG-blogs. We do likewise.

Or perhaps not. Because it does seem a bit silly to look back at d6ideas during the year 2015 on this very blog. After all, if anyone is interested in what we did that year, it is all right here to thumb through and (re-)read. We did not take anything offline or completely rewrote anything – the occassional correction not withstanding.

Now, looking forward is another matter. So, what will we have in store at and for d6ideas in 2016?

First of, more of the usual. Meaning:

  • House rules, background ideas, and other material for Blue Planet, CthulhuTech, SLA Industries, The Red Star, Unknown Armies, Warhammer 40.000 Roleplay and other games,
  • reports and updates on our own homebrews (probably mostly in German, though you never know), such as Beutelschneider or Unknown Mobile Suit,
  • as well as on and off thoughts on RPGs in general (although we do try and steer clear of that most of the time).

Then of course a couple of projects we already announced in 2015, especially:

  • Progress, our planned SLA Industries fanzine,
  • the next (German) edition of Beutelschneider,
  • and a closing remarks article on a German RPG-bloggers’ carnival that is now overdue 16 months.

Last but not least there are some things which we are already working on but which we did not mention online – until now:

  • The return of the SLA Industries Equipment Log,
  • a redesign of the d6ideas website,
  • as well as items from the first of our lists above, but already in various stages of drafting and writing, such as a short series on telepathy for The Red Star, already started in December 2015 with the Transpathic Battlespace, the Opera Program, a sort of reimagining of SLA Industries, or – on the more general side – a series looking at the use of toys at the gaming table using examples from our own games (yes, we do feel a certain connection to the origin story of the rust monster).

(By the way, was it pre-planned to have this come out as three lists of three each?)

  1. Ich persönlich verzichte auch auf einen Rückblick*, aber ein Rückblick kann:
    a) Eure Blogtätigkeiten zusammenfassen
    b) auf Tätigkeiten außerhalb des Blogs zurückblicken.

    *Natürlich lasse ich in der aktuellen Blog’O’Quest zurückblicken.
