2d6 Sword & Sorcery/ 2d6 Sci Fi Combat Crossover - WTH?

Here's an AAR of the upcoming free 2d6 Crossover Doc that allows you to play SciFi/Fantasy games using the two free 2d6 games we've provided.
Although sharing similar mechanics, the challenge is to combine them together into one game while keeping the "feel" of each set. I've combined the tables from both into one doc that is used when mixing rules. Here's an AAR showing how this works.
 I decided to use the dungeon tiles and terrain from Acheson Creations. I started the game off with a Magic Door
Here's an AAR using the rules. 

 The door opens and Bill Pink, Leonidas Jones (Fast Eddies' twin), and two others pop in front of a waterfall. I roll for a Possible Enemy Foorces (PEF) and score two Goblins.

Time to go to the Battle Board.
While the mechanics of each set are similar, I needed to define some things.
1 - DV and AC are used in the same ways.
2 - Those armed with modern weapons are considered Missile Class.
3 - Orcs, Elves, and other human sized fantasy races are considered Humanoid.
4 - Other non-human races are Creatures. Humanoid and Creature come into play on the Action and Will to Fight Tables.
5 - Shooting has been lifted from 2d6 Sci-Fi Combat while melee comes from 2d6 Sword & Sorcery. Note that both are modified and blended a bit.
6 - The After the Battle Recovery Test is used after each fight, not at the end of the game.

End of the fight.
The Gobbos gained the Advantage and charged. Leonidas was allowed to fire and took out one Gobbo. The other two Gobbos won the melees killing one Grunt and knocking the other Out of the Fight. Billy and Leonidas passed the Will to Fight Test and activated, killing the Gobbos. The OOF Grunt recovered and it was time to move on the Dungeon tiles.

The white player marker meets a PEF.
Three Gobbos and Billy's side won the Advantage. Bang! Bang! Bang! After this we decided to use the "coins" from 2 Hour Dungeon Crawl where you gain coins (Increasing Rep d6) for defeating the enemy.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
 Back to the Dungeon Tiles and another PEF!

 Watch for Part 2!


  1. Nice! I can feel a Dr Who game forming...!

  2. Oooh! I'll get a Reaper BONES Police Box and paint it up like the Tardis...Dr. Pink vs. the Gobbos...

    1. Thanks for the info, I'll grab one myself.
