A downloadable game

Aphelion Transit is a rules-lite Sci-Fi RPG which uses a simple d6 dice pool mechanic. Fast to play, learn, and teach. Player facing rolls makes it friendly for solo play as well.

All you need to play are a variety of d6 (3 of one size or color and 5 of another size or color), paper, pencil, a couple friends and your imagination.

Fast character creation and simple but very flexible rules makes it easy to get up and running quickly.

Hey there, I found this system when it was pretty new and always find myself coming back to it during my own design process and while searching for sci-fi games to play solo. I really love the simple mechanics. Is there somewhere I can message you to ask some questions about creating a hack of this?
