After Phil “Grimace” Hatfield introduced me to Galaxy Games Online, I’ve long thought of customising some .ggo files for use with the old West End Games’ Star Wars RPG.
Galaxy Games Online is a program that allows you to run and play pen and paper type role playing games over the internet using a chat window and a dice roller. One feature available on the program allows us to create our own .ggo files, which can be customised player character sheets, dice rollers and even a virtual book where we can write down our house rules, all readable from the main program. You can even create your own random name generator, which is easily adaptable to other uses such as random encounters or random locations.
Here for your download are four .ggo files compressed neatly in a zip file.
- SWD6 Template – An empty player character template with a tab for each attribute and a text field for each skill.
- SWD6 Template Lite – A truncated version of the above file where you put all your skills into one text field.
- SWD6 Daye Azur-Jamin – An NPC created by Kathy Tyers which appeared in Star Wars Adventure Journal #10.
- SWD6 Dice Roller – A collection of macros that allows you to roll D6 dice and view the results in the chat window within the range of 1D to 13D+2.

So, what you have to do is download the .zip file [[download:swd6__ggo.zip:text:here:SWRPG D6 for Galaxy Games Online]] (right click and Save File As… , Size: 16KB), unzip and put all files in Program Files > Galaxy Games > Galaxy Games Online > samples.
Of course it would help if you had the program installed and were using it to game online.
