d6 Space - Nikola Vrtis

From the Star Wars guys, so not much of a surprise this is more along the science fantasy lines of Space Opera and Star Ace than Traveller and Future Law...although it does have a Ship Design Log. The d6 system with difficulty numbers, character point buys and Fate points even for a good, basic SF adventure game of reasonable length. Complete with leaping out of vehicle rules, Matter Eater Lad advantages and ways to make rolling huge numbers of d6 as you get more impressive more quickly. A good idea in general for games where you end up with crazy dice numbers. Cybernetics aplenty here. There is an actual Space Opera supplement for if you want to go more along those lines and throw in more psionics. Extremely good value for free, certainly and somewhat new player friendly. 3.5 out of 5
