XD6 SRD - Hackable RPG Dice System
A downloadable game
The XD6 SRD is an TTRPG system made to power games about epic, cinematic stories of larger-than-life figures. Giant mecha, kaiju, superheroes, gods & demons - this is for flashy, edge-of-your-seat action and immense, planet-shaking FX.
You can also use it to play tea parties. It’s your thing - do what you wanna do. This system is free to hack under CC 4.0 - just credit the author, and put the cool logo in!
Check the screenshots for the basic mechanic (or watch this AMAZING REVIEW by Hessan's County!). The full system includes rules for creating characters for any game, quick play character sheets, abilities and drawbacks, and sample characters to show the range of awesome possible - from the Impossible Bulk, a massive, angry science mistake, to Lavender Baudelaire, an orphan whose inventions save her siblings.
The current price is to pay for all the work I've put in - this beast clocks in at 26 carefully laid-out pages, and I'd love the excuse to write more. If I get enough downloads ($200+, funding as part of ZIMO!), I'll start releasing some extras:
- Mecha-Magi, a sample setting
- Challenge clock and examples
- Extended character sheet
- Ability and Drawback cards for easy table use
- An online character keeper for digital play
- Printable lists of signature performances
Please reach out with any questions - I'd love to know who's out there playing!

It's a "standard TTRPG," so figure a couple of hours - making characters can be as easy as determining the number of dice and jumping in! The story and setting are up to you, but the mechanics are designed to support folx tweaking the system to suit their needs and accommodate any giant, epic, zany sort of storyline.
It offers a set of "generic" Moves (Get Physical, Influence, Figure It Out, FX, and Fix It) and a set of special abilities to customize characters, but it's open to creativity (Mad Max vibes? Do Drive, Brawl, Shoot, Tough It Out, Navigate, and Ancient Lore! Dragonball? Go for Energy Manipulation, Transformation, Super Speed, Power Up ... whatever works!).
Happy to say more - I have updates and a setting I'd love to post, so feel free to holler if you're into it and have any questions (I'd love the excuse to chat about and work on it further!). Thanks so much for the interest!
And as far as players, 2-6?
hey I'd love to buy this but apparently I can't use PayPal - is that intentional?
Not at all, and WEIRD. Should be able to! Let me check on it! It may have to do with the low price.
Let me send you a copy if you're having trouble, as a gift. Apologies! Let me know an e-mail?
