Utah, UNITED STATES (10/11/2017) – Gallant Knight Games and Nocturnal Media are pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement related to the classic West End Games D6 System. Under license from Nocturnal Media, Gallant Knight Games will become the official publisher and distributor of a new edition of the D6 System, tentatively titled: “D6 System: Second Edition”!

This new edition will be overseen by Gallant Knight Games’ design team, with approvals from Nocturnal Media & West End Games.

“The West End Games D6 system and it’s classic D6 game of cinematic space opera adventure was hugely informative of my growth as a young gamer,” Alan Bahr, founder of Gallant Knight Games adds. “Helping to bring West End Games back into the mainstream gaming community is an exciting moment for us, and serving as the official West End Games creation and publishing studio is an opportunity of a lifetime!”

More announcements about changes in D6 System: Second Edition, timelines and dates will be forthcoming!

Oh hell yeah! Back to the roots of Star Wars gaming without all the crap from Fantasy Flight with its silly classes and dice! Definitely will pick this up when its released. Hopefully the older sourcebooks will be compatible.

I wish these guys the best. I do hope they look at certain aspects of Mini Six (I really like the Static Defense system) and maybe see if they can incorporate that into their system, even if it's just the optional rules. I could cobble some myself of course, but one can always appreciate an official word down in the book itself and not on a computer printout of house rules.
