MYTHIC D6 is a dice-based tabletop role playing game created to play heroic action adventure in your genre of choice. The spiritual successor of the D6 Legends games system produced by West End Games, it, and the game worlds it supports, opens new options and opportunities for playing across a wide spectrum of genres. Incorporating 20 years of innovation into a tried and true system gives gamers ultimate flexibility when looking for a transparent and intuitive system.

 

The MYTHIC D6, a 250-page softcover book that includes: 

  • A complete rule set for use with any super heroic action genre. 
  • Flexible character creation. 
  • Rules for super human powers. 
  • Gadgetry rules. 
  • A complete sample game world called Project Mythic!

 The writing, testing and basic layout are done.  

The game is done, its ready to go. All I need are the resources to print it and pay for art, shipping and marketing. The game is a reality, but YOU can make it better. I want this project to be the premier flagship for the future of D6 gaming and I can do that with the generous resources you will hopefully provide.

 A Fully Realized Setting!
Superheroes vs Monsters! This is the world of Mythic, a world where super human heroes battle the forces of a shadowy dimensional incursion while dealing with infighting and betrayals that threaten to tear their lives apart. Until recently Earth’s history was pretty much as we know it today. With one exception…

With the barrier between our dimension and the Otherlands weakened, things leaked from the dark dimension into Earth’s reality; not only monsters and cryptids but also spirits and dark emotional energy.

Into the mix comes the Institute, a shadowy organization with its origins in project Warhorse, the government program that succeeded in creating metahumans during World War 2. The Institute has set itself up to fight the invasion, bringing to bear superhumans it created for just this purpose.

SHIPPING

You may have noticed that there are no additional charges for shipping. This is intentional.

Because shipping cost is one of the biggest issues in a Kickstarter, this time around I have decided that the onus to pay the fair share of the shipping falls to the backer. I know that sounds harsh, but I’m actually trying to save people money in the long run. Rather than increasing the cost of each reward level by a static amount to try and predict total shipping costs, I’m completely individualizing the process.

When the project is ready to ship, everyone who is entitled to physical items will be given a special coupon code that may be used to purchase the item for $0+shipping. 

I know this isn't how it’s usually done but this helps in several ways:

  • This helps make the Kickstarter successful and takes out the hidden variables created by the hardships of International Shipping Rates.
  • It takes some of the burden off my shoulders and allows me to focus on producing the game.
  • It allows you to know with certainty that the generosity you afford me goes 100% toward the project you funded. 
  • It allows me to ask for less money knowing that I don’t have to factor in 2-3 thousand dollars for shipping.
  • It allows you to control how and when you want your items shipped.
  • Thank you for your understanding and your generosity.  

  

 

 

MYTHIC D6 is a generic utility kit to create almost any action adventure game. 

"My philosophy about almost every roleplaying game is that they all boil down to superheroes packaged in different outfits and settings. They may not all shoot optic blast from their eyes like Cyclops, leap tall buildings like Superman, or strike fear into the hearts of criminals like the Batman, but they are all super heroic in one way or another. 

In RPGs set in mythic fantasy lands like many D&D games, you are a Hero who can fight dragons, teleport through walls, and burn hordes of undead with fireballs or lightning strikes. Superheroes. 

In Feng Shui, you mow through mooks without a second thought, shrugging off the sword and bullet attacks. Superheroes. 

In the year 2020, characters in Night City can weave nano-fibers into their skin and graft muscle onto metal-laced skeletons to enhance strength and reflex time. Those same characters are then able to perform amazing and sometimes ridiculous feats like chasing down moving cars, or stopping them through hacking the drive system. Superheroes. 

Doc Savage was a man of action with amazing intellectual and physical abilities (he even had a Fortress of Solitude before the Man of Steel). Conan was a mighty barbarian who broke a bull’s neck with his bare hands at the age of 16. Both superheroes."

        - Jerry "Trashboat" Grayson

Every effort has been made to make this book as generic and universally applicable to any game world.

The Game and some of its concepts are the spiritual successor of the original DC Universe roleplaying game, released by West End Games and the GODSEND Agenda roleplaying game, released by Khepera Publishing.

Starting with GODSEND Agenda, and HELLAS, I've created many successful Kickstarter gaming projects enjoyed by many. Now I am focusing on MYTHIC D6.

With the help of other talented men and women I've created products for PDF and physical print and maintained a level of consistency and quality that rivals much larger publishers.

 

Risks and challenges

Khepera Publishing is an experienced RPG publisher. I’ve produced several role-playing games in a variety of formats since 2002. This puts me in an excellent position to take on the risks and challenges that will arise; and as with any project, experience tells me a few problems likely will.

Problems that could arise,
• Artists who turn out to be slow
• Creators who suffer illness with no form of support to keep the project going.
• Writer deciding to re-write everything.
• Lack of effective communication

If these things happen, I will be a responsible human being and address the issue and move past the problem. This kickstarter isn’t just a small-time pie in the sky hobby project; this is a business. You’ve given me money with the expectation that you will get what was promised.

• The artist that’s too slow? Build in more lead time or get a different artist to finish the project.
• The creator takes ill. That would be me. If that occurs, there are capable people that I know who will step in and complete the project. But since the majority (90%) of the writing is done, this is not an issue. If I die, I can see this being a problem. I’m going to address by keeping my fingers crossed.
• The writer decided to rewrite everything? I’m done writing the book, and two things prevent me from rewriting it. 1- I’m lazy, 2- my massive ego says its perfect as is. Your mileage may vary.
• Lack of Communication. I always own up to my failings, and this Kickstarter is no exception. Good human beings do not cheat others that have so generously given them money. I honor the trust that you’ve placed in me. I’m visible, and I own my foibles.

If there is ever a problem with the project that makes things look dire, I will tell you promptly, and we can move forward with the best possible intentions.

If there are any risks or challenges YOU can think of that we haven't mentioned here, please write in and tell me. I’ll try and provide the best possible service for your help.

Thank you.
