• Doorways to Adventure!

    Sixcess Core is your doorway to great and memorable adventures. Gather your friends, create interesting characters and explore a myriad of worlds and settings. This is just the beginning of countless and boundless exploits. Create your own gameworlds or delve into one of ours. There are no limits!

  • Elfwood

    An ongoing struggle between the ancient world and the new technologies, through the woods, deep in the caverns, on the high seas, amongst the societies and cultures, where the veil separating the Shadowrealm thins and tears, threatening to consume the world in its darkness.

  • Promised Sands

    Survival and discovery in a dark, desert fantasy, a world layered in sands that hide an apocalypse in the distant past, cultures struggle to fill the vacuum of the faded civilizations, as an ancient power lays claims to ownership of the promised sands.

  • Extraordinary Voyages

    More than a single world, an entire solar system, swimming in the Aether, that embraces the romance and simplicity of the past, while coupling it with the hope and promise of the future. Giant, ironclad, steam-powered aether-flyers ply the skies between the worlds. Cultures vie for power and resources in an age of colonization and expansion.

  • Mytharia

    A far away land of legends and lore composed of both the magical and mundane. The devotees of gods and goddesses from a thousand pantheons divide into factions and struggle to control the shattered lands. Most grinders are crossbloods and few purebloods of any race remain. Blended genres are the norm in this fantastical realm of magic, mystery and mythology.

  • Stardust

    All the old empires and governments have laid claim to the bounty of the Fringe, but none have the resources to truly conquer its vastness. By nature of the Fringe, travel between the stars is slow and ponderous for the big ships. Thus the small, singleship riders who brave the Abyss of space – ‘Byssriders – explore and spread out. Central hubs of information, trade and entertainment, StarDust installations are beacons of civilization in the lonely void of the ‘Byss.

  • Tribulum

    Prophecies from so many cultures culminate in the daily headlines – yet no one seems moved. The veil has thinned – and torn – allowing the horrors of the shadows to creep into the world of the living. Darklings rule and manage organizations, corporations and governments. The end is coming, the Final Battle is imminent. Put on your armor, gird your weapons and prepare to meet the Enemy! Every soul you deny the Enemy is one less we gotta fight in the Final Battle.

  • A Dark Rain

    They came from a clear sky, without warning. Black parachutes floating serenely from a sky devoid of aircraft. It was the last serene day we’d ever experience. We were invaded, from another dimension, by Nazis! Invaders from a universe where the Nazis didn’t lose WWII.

Update - Production and GenCon 2014

Scott Harshbarger | May 06, 2014

Product Update Promised Sands needs a little tweaking of some minor rules and layout needs to be finished. Artwork is in. Freelance work is in. Editing is at 90%. ElfWood is our next highest priority. Chris is cranking away on the material while the rest of us are focused on finishing up Promised Sands. We are waiting to finish both of these projects before we move anything else from the back-burners to the front – but rest assured, Extraordinary Voyages, Mytharia, StarDust and Tribulum are simmering nicely. In fact, we have received enough from our freelancers that Extraordinary Voyages may pop to the front soon – but, again, not until the rest are off to the printer.
