View Full Version : E6: Opinions

02-17-2009, 08:28 PM
I just heard about "E6", a variation on D&D where characters stop at 6th level. After that point, characters use XP to buy additional feats. It's described fully in http://esix.pbwiki.com/f/E6v041.pdf and on http://esix.pbwiki.com/ .

Anyone else have any experience, or informed opinions based on their own D&D experience?

I haven't played it yet, but that's only because I stumbled across it after my current campaign started. My next campaign will definitely be E-6, as it seems to be everything I want in a game.

It's such a great concept, I'm already using it. Well, my own version. I'd hate to let the last five spell levels go to waste, so I'm not capping the characters: I'm capping their enemies. So my campaign uses fewer and fewer high-powered enemies, which slows PC progression and makes higher levels both harder to obtain and more significant (since finding challenges means going to greater lengths).

I had never seen this before and declare it extremely interesting!

I like tinkering under the hood though, so big surprise! ;)

interesting approach. i know of some friends whom would love this set of ideas. i'll be sure to pass it on.

Very interesting approach. I've liked the 3-10 levels the best, at one point doubling the experience required to advance just so i could savor the character before the mechanics got to complicated. Serious potential here.
