From publisher blurb:
What's the D6xD6 game?
It's a quick-and-easy system for running role-playing adventures. You can create literally any type of character, based on a unique dice mechanic and a single attribute—Focus. Here's a quick summary of character creation.
Circle 1 of 4 attributes — Brawn, Grace, Wits, and Will — as your strongest, and cross out 1 as your weakest. Next, name literally any occupation you can imagine. Then choose up to 9 bonus skills from the setting you'll play. Focus is the total of those skills, plus 1 for occupation. Add a few free secondary skills and give your character a name, age, and gender — you're ready to go!
Very focused characters are great with their occupation and the few skills they're familiar with. Less focused characters have a wider range of skills at lower proficiency, but they also have a better chance of success at things they've never tried before. A brand-new character takes about five minutes to make and can fit on a business card.
