Definitely something to looking into. Pilots will soon learn that w Metal and Flesh In battlefields on Earth, in space, and on realms known only to imagination, brave men and women answer the call of fate. It felt to us that removing 1 factor could be good.

Hey Paul, sorry it took me so long to get back to you. They add a lot of color to the game. Creating a setting alone as the GM work fine, but it would help to have some tools to create a setting together as a group.

But sadly weapon damage types only come up when someone use the defender configuration. The art suffices, and while their is a lot of variety in the human characters presented, I think the book would have benefited from seeing more styles of mecha to go along with them.

Tactical Waypoint Capture is pretty much a must: We were tempted to hack the game by simply removing all the skills and just using a target number of 3 for all the tests and letting the attribute and the number of success determine the mechs difficulty. As for some of pdrrin flaws you point out, you make really excellent points that Chriis would like to address and get some clarification on.

Because character with a rating 1 skill pperrin VERY clumsy, socially inept, stupids, etc. In this case, I think your confusion is warranted because I had a clear picture in my head of the way the Configurations worked and I assumed that everyone shared the vision in my head. When it was clear that we were dreadfully outmatched, none of us could roll high enough to even be allowed to try and run away, resulting in a TPK.

[Chris Perrins’ Mecha] Got the game, loving it so far but I need help to patch some issues : rpg

Now I find myself wanting to create a setting that’s William Hope Hodgson’s The Night Land as made into a Mecha anime by someone not particularly respectful of the original. Thanks for the setting creation ideas. I hope soon to share more good news.

I think our battles lasted rounds on average. Really liking Chris Perrins’ Mecha. Jan 30, Chris Perrin rated it it was amazing. In other words, when considering a “stunt” that uses movement to attack, you or, at least, I think of a fast mech using its speed and maneuverability as a weapon. Too much grey area to write on, it become a mess when you erase stuff. Maybe Wolf’s Dragoons vs. I understand your frustration with low target numbers, but part of the reason they are there is to emulate the fact that in mecha anime, characters tend to have something they do really well schmooze, make cool gadges, etc.


The RPG This is mecha-style anime role playing at its finest. To be honest, in terms of World Building, I haven’t really thought about it since publication. I will be more than happy to add more tables if they will help.


One of the prepackaged SRSes omitted the Skill Points for the archetypes and so it may not be readily apparent as it should be that EVERY archetype is built off of having 8 points divvied amongst the skills and 3 to spend as the character wants. March edited March I’m realizing that the mechanics of some configurations give me a totally different picture than is presented by the “flavor” or even name of that configuration.
