Action at the Speed of Narrative
NOVA6 is a d6-based Fate Core hack. The changes introduced blend the tension of simulationist elements while retaining a narrative core, balancing traditional RPG elements with technology around player agency and narrative control.
NOVA6 also reduces action decision paralysis. On your turn you select an action, perhaps combine it with 1 or 2 others, and resolve these actions. The results of the Action Roll determine whether you succeed or fail, and whether that success involves a stunt (e.g., called shot, advantageous positioning, reveal secret information, etc.) or a complication.
Key Differences from Fate:
The system is intended to support extensive tactical details, rapid task resolution, and creative interpretation of story and plot.
There's still a lot going on with the development of NOVA6 but we are happy to share the latest Quick Reference Sheet which gives you pretty good insight into how the rules will work.
We really wanted the core rules of NOVA6 to fit on a single page. We still have some tweaking to do but this is pretty close to getting all the rules here.
