Coming Very Soon-Astral Empires the RPG Open D6 Edition

As much as I like Traveller my favorite sci-fi rpg has always been D6, mostly because of the pop culture variants of the rules that were around during my middle school and high school years.  Many an afternoon was spent at the local comic book/game store pouring over those books (which I could usually not afford to buy until years later).  Now, thanks to the graciousness of Eric Gibson (the owner of WEG) in releasing the Open D6 system under the Open Gaming License I'm joining other publishers in getting my chance to put out material for my favorite system.

So keep an eye out for Astral Empires-The Roleplaying Game Open D6 Edition!   Created as something of an homage to the sci-fi games of the 70s, 80s and 90s and powered by the new Open D6 system the Astral Empires RPG is turning out to be something rather cool (if I may say so) and the best exploration of the AE universe I could imagine.  I'll let you know when it's available at,, etc.  :)

  1. Hello,

    Ran into your website from the West End Games fansite.

    I don't know if this would be any use to you, but the website provides very accurate 3D java based star maps for star systems in the vicinity of Sol.

    Other than that, will be looking forward to your publication.

    I'm working on a campaign setting with a similar theme myself.

  2. Thanks for the information, Stuart. I'll check it out. :) Thanks for taking the time to let me know about it. I'll look forward to seeing your campaign setting as well. :)
