Role playing games might better be titled life simulators, for that is what they try so hard to do, recreate life while rewriting all the pesky laws, physical and legal, that get in the way of a good adventure. Often though, the simulation becomes bogged down in its own rules. It’s no fun searching through massive tomes for obscure information about rifle recoil rates to see how they might affect the outcome of a superhero battle. In the best life simulators, story trumps reality everytime. 6X is a simple system for telling a collabortive story, perfect for beginners and those more interested in story than reality.
